Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight + SotA Bonus Golden Moon Dial Auction Spotlight


This was an exciting auction to come across my radar, as while I have heard a lot of the Garriott stories I had never heard of this one!

Story or not the photo is fantastic. You can see the pure wonderment on Helen’s face, and Owen in the background has a huge grin!

$10.00 Starting bid with reasonable shipping, this is a cool addition to someone’s collection!

Since I hate doing auction spotlights for just 1 item, I figured I will use some of my own blog space for a couple of auctions I am running for Shroud of the Avatar items, one in particular.

If you didn’t Seed invest but are a collector, then you may have your eyes on many of the Seed invest items. Currently, I have an auction that just started, running just a tad over two weeks, for a Golden Lord British Moondial, taking place on Caveloot.com.

The Moondial to rich for your blood? Do you have some house decorating you need to do or having trouble keeping your vendor stocked and need goods to sell for profit?

I also have an auction running for a “Massive House Decorating kit” that comes with hundreds of items that should allow you to at least get a fairly decent start on the job, including storage! Current bid is $55.00 and that is CHEAP for this kit!

Helen Garriott Auction Spotlight


Once again, I must painfully pass onto my readers the availability of this fine piece of Helen Garriott artwork which I have been lamenting for, for a long time! I try to always remind myself to be happy I already own one of her pots!

With her recent passing, these will only become more sought after, harder to find, and costly. So if you ever wanted one, now may be a good time to grab this.

Richard Garriott and Space – eBay Auction Spotlight


What really caught my attention about this item on eBay today, was not that it’s all that rare. I just haven’t seen one in quite a while.

I have seen them posted regularly in the past. Pricing if I remember right tends to run between $75.00 – and $125.00 so this one while not an amazing deal, IS reasonable and fair.

I would love to get one of these for my collection! I have a framed Nasa Postal Cover that has been signed both by Richard and his father, Owen Garriott. Richard signed it for me himself, and while it’s worth a relatively minor dollar amount, especially compared to other items in my collection, it is one of my most treasured possessions as well as his commemorative space travel coins.

Why? Simple, I am a major fan of the space programs as I believe our ability to travel, explore, and populate the stars, is dependent upon our long-term ability to survive as a species. I believe that could lead to us being one nation someday, as one planet, without borders.

Commercial Spacelight bringing the countries of the planet together to pioneer the stars due to common interest and passion. I also believe that Richard Garriott will be historically seen as one of the greatest visionaries of his century as a godfather and pioneer not only in his work in the space industry but also for his ability to inspire others.

So I personally love items that tie those things together, as they represent something I believe strongly in and have a passion for. Dollar value is irrelevant :).

Whatever your reason for collecting such item’s though, this one is a cool piece to own!

Shroud of The Avatar & Cuthulu Auction Spotlight


The first auction I noticed today was for a Shroud of the Avatar challenge coin. This coin was originally made by Frank Baxley and was given to Portalarium along with the designs and all that sort of stuff.

Since then they have remade multiple versions of it using different metal mixes and finishes. To the best of my knowledge, the artwork has never been changed, although it will for the reward coin version from pledge rewards.

Given out by dev’s just about anywhere you can encounter them, and if they decided to have some with them (not just Richard himself).

Someone has this one up on Ebay. I wouldn’t say the price is bad, but I think in time you may do better. On the other hand, if you’re trying to get all the metal versions of this, you might want to jump on it. Some are more limited than others.

This auction caught my eye, as I want it for my collection and use! I have most of the D20 Cthulhu stuff as well as a lot of off-shoot stuff (none of which I have used yet *smirks*). One of the few items I have never picked up is the Game Master’s Pack. For a while, it was impossible to get for anything less than $150.00.

I have seen it purchasable for a $100.00 or so a few times now, but this is the first time I saw it listed this low! Fortunately for you, if it is of interest to you, if it doesn’t pay my bills or put food on my table I don’t buy it right now. So I am passing a good score onto you instead!

Auction Spotlight – “AUTOGRAPH,HAND SIGNED SOYUZ TMA-13 COSMONUT , RICHARD GARRIOTT”

Nothing really caught my eye today in the Ultima or Shroud of the Avatar auctions, but I did see this autographed photo. I have seen a lot of autographed space photos involving Richard Garriott. Don’t believe I saw this one before, though.

Ultima & SotA Auction Spotlight – U9, U5, and Midras


Just a few auctions that poked me a bit. Decent but not over the top exciting or anything.

For the Ultima IX crowd, here is an opportunity to get the Prima Strategy guide for under $10.00.

How about an Ultima V for a possible $25.00 + shipping? Wait! Don’t get too excited, as it is missing coin.

As an avid book reader, I have been very surprised by the amount of time it is taking for The Sword of Midras, by Tracy Hickman, to come down in price on Ebay. Overall it has stayed in the $15-22.00 range, and I see an occasional copy for around $5.00. This is one of those, so you Shroud of the Avatar fans may want to jump on it.
