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!

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 Auction Spotlight – UO Charter and a Sprinkle of Tabula Rassa


If you have an interest in this Tabula Rasa shirt, move fast! I have seen them used. I rarely see them used in an XL. Never have I seen one new, much less in an XL. It pains me more then you can know that I am not doing the XL on this one myself! That’s right. Buy it now, and priced at the same cost as some of the t-shirts in my dresser. Woa..

Hopefully, I get this post finished before its gone..

Complete UO Charter Edition for $160.00 is not horrible. I would usually recommend around 100-120, with $80 being a great score. That is the thing though, you could go for a bid instead of a buy it now and most likely get this for less. Currently starts at $80.00.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Apple II version of U1, U3, Collector Guide


I was starting to get worried I was not going to see any auctions I felt were even the least bit worth to discuss ever again, based on what I have been catching of late.

Then finally, today, we have some stuff that’s discussion worthy at the minimum.

First up is a hot Ultima I for the Apple II. I say hot as it currently is at $100.00 with 12 bids and reasonable shipping. Still, I would love to own an Ultima I for that price, and this is in great shape. It’s bound to go for more but will most likely be less than a But It Now typically would. Good purchase for someone!

Ultima III is the most Nostalgic of computer games in the world to me. I played it before I played Zork even!

If you collect Ultima, you should have an Ultima Collectors guide. If you’re going to have one of those, you may well get a REALLY cool one, although I cannot comment one way or another on the price.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – UV and UII


This Ultima V has a chance of making someone happy at a good price. IT does have a bit of a bidding war going though so don’t get carried away and go to high out of excitement! Snipe it at the last minute!

Currently at $22.50 with four bids. The shipping is not my preference, and I would personally contact the seller and ask “If I won this, would you switch to the economy?”.

Looking like a LOT of potential here but hard to say how it could go. Ultima II, free shipping, currently only at $61.00 with two bids. If I were now buying, I would be all over this one. I haven’t seen a UII listing quite this beautiful in terms of price potential in a while.

Personally, I would also be tempted to pick up these UII 3.5″. Currently free shipping, no bids, and at $19.99? Yeah, they had me at $19.99 and the photo!

Ultima Auction Spotlight – VIII and VI


Two auctions hit my radar today for the first time in about a week or two.

The first being an Ultima VIII due to the price. At a quick glance seems to be complete (please verify). Currently has a single bid of $7.99, reasonable shipping, and appears to be in decent condition. This may be a good score for someone!

The other one is an Ultima VI that also seems to be complete and in good condition. The shipping costs on this are a bit sad as the buyer choose expedited to list it. Perhaps you can get them to change that to lower the costs!

Still, though that can be a deterrent on bidders. Which means fewer people may even pay attention to the auction and at the end of the day it’s about the total price, right? So this may be of benefit to a bidder giving them less competition allowing for a lower sale price that may more than offset the shipping.

Ultima & Wing Commander Auction Spotlight – WC Poster, U6, U7, SE, and MD


I have never personally started collecting Wing Commander. The only thing I would have against doing so is the ability to buy the stuff! This would be a piece I would want, though. Not sure if $9.99 + shipping is reasonable for this, but seems like it would be a fair shake.

An Ultima Vii, looks to be complete, current bid is $19.99 and shipping seems fair. I shouldn’t need to say more about this!

$10.00 low bid and this has the cassette and moonstone? You’re lucky I’m not bidding and keeping this one to myself!!!!

I haven’t seen a Savage Empire at a bid of $19.99 in forever! I would contact the seller on this auction and verify what contents it has. The photos do not show (looks like they used a stock photo only), and the description does not indicate that I saw.

Worlds of Ultima The Savage Empire


Wooa, Don’t believe me? Go look for yourself! Martian Dreams and Ultima Underworld WITH RUNE STONES currently at $31.00. Holy shit, someone is going to get some nice items from this auction!

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.

Ultima Auction Spotlight – Ultima the Avatar Adventures


I can’t say too much about this, as not only do I do not have it in my collection, but it’s a piece I have only seen up one eBay once before. That does not in ANY way mean it’s rare, only means it hasn’t been auctioned a lot or caught my eye when it has been.

Currently has a buy it now of $60.00, option to make an offer, and is an AU auction.
