It really depends on what you are looking for.
The MC22 is that little bit more refined and modern and is considered the better looking by many.
The MC19 only has a single disk up front, but it is still quite capable. A lot of the racing guys prefer this as it is lower in weight.
The later MC22s are technically a bit lower on power, but to be honest it is difficult to pick under regular riding conditions.
I have late model 22 that I use on the road and an early model 22 that I use on the track.

Being older and the first of the true twin headlight 250 sport bike category, the MC19 might ultimately be a bit more collectable and hence worth more.

Peter.
