Ultima Auction Spotlight – Ultima II


What this auction is lacking, namely a box. Is made up for in that it has the map and is currently under $20.00.

Well? What are you waiting for? Tell them Caveloot.com sent you and to go shop there with the money they get from you!

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!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – U9 Map and Cards, U1, and a U3


This Ultima IX is far from being complete, given its only a map, the cards, and the books. On the flips side, $17.00 with free shipping for a map and cards is a great buy!

Hi bid on an Ultima III is currently only at $12.50. Makes me wish I had a little spare cash right now!

Even an Ultima I without coins is better then no Ultima I. An Ultima I without coins that has two days left and high bid is at $13.00? Sounds like one to pay attention to.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – U2 and U7


Two auctions that caught my eye today.

This first one, well, because it’s an Ultima Two and let’s face it. That’s eye-catching worthy on its own! The box is a beat up, and I am not too sure about the buy it now of $150.00. Not a bad price for a U2, but this one is not a 100% perfect. If I were buying for my collection right now, I’d consider it, though.

This U7 has no trinket and the map has some spots on the back. Regardless though with no bids, this could end up being an inexpensive addition for someone.

I could do without the expedited shipping the seller listed this with, but with the bid currently at under $3.00, odds are good this is going to be a good buy.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – U9 Map and Tarot Cards


Well, this auction also has the manuals, but who cares about those right? Whoa!!! Calm down, collectors! I do of course, but only regarding being an Origins, Lord British, and Ultima collector. What I mean is while this auction may be a score for some more advanced collectors, more likely this will interest someone with more specific aims.

That being those that like either the Cloth Maps or maybe even just Tarot Cards. I know a few people who the Ultima games are meaningless too, but if you give them a deck of the U9 Tarot cards, will get excited. In fact, I did just that for my wife once!

Then you also have the Map collector, which can range from the Ultima map collector to that person that just likes maps, period.

Whatever category you fall into, I bet you could get this for $15.00 using the make an offer option!

Richard Garriott Auction Spotlight – Man On A Mission


This is a fantastic documentary about Richard Garriott’s preparation and flight into space. It is not hard to find at all. However, I have NEVER seen it posted this inexpensively on Ebay. I even paid a bit more than this for the copy I own, and I waited a year before I nabbed it at what I paid!

You do not need to be a fan of or interested in Richard Garriott to enjoy this movie. I think just about anyone with an interest in some of the things taking place in the commercial space flight industry would do well to check this score out!

There is also bonus features on it, including the first (and only still?) horror movie that takes place in space, actually filmed in space. It’s just a short flick of only a few minutes but is enjoyable.

So whether looking to add it to a collection, or just want an enjoyable and educational movie to watch, this is a win!
