Looking for something more substantial than just some great potential deal on maps?
This Ultima Two is currently at $125.55. The shipping is a bit nasty so keep that in account when bidding, or ask them to switch to something more reasonable for you. Lot of times Sellers just choose the wrong shipping on accident!
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.
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!
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.
If you haven’t heard about this, you are really out of touch, and I am honored you’re hearing it from here!

I am in a lot of pain that instead of putting a bid on this one myself, I am sharing it with you! My loss is your gain, though, and this has the potential to be a win. Not guaranteed as it is listed as an auction format, but currently is at $52.00!
