[SWCollect] And then one day, the Holy Grail is found

2004-03-30 Thread Pedro Quaresma
Hello list, I have this theory: I know I will find, cheap (I have the principle of not paying more than $50 per computer game), all the items I'd really like to have in my Ultima collection. Time has proven that I'm right. It has happened so far with the Ultima items I'm most proud of, like the

Hello Stuart, Not sure how rare the OST1 is, but I'm sure the production figures weren't that high since, as you might know, the production was made solely by Origin UK and canceled by Origin USA since they had given no permission for its release. Joe surely knows more about this issue. Of

I know how you feel. I have no thirst for a Drash or Akalabeth either, except as a way of making some money. : ) I have found most of my holy grails also, but not all of them. There's still quite a few to search for. : ) Stuart -Original Message-From: MASTER [mailto:[EMAIL

HOLY GUACAMOLE! ...and congratulations, Pedro! For those who don't know what it is, this is the infamous 'Origin Audio CD-Volume 1'. It is one of the rarest Origin items to acquire, due to it's strange beginnings...A little history is in order here: Back in 1990, Origin was in it's glory

My initial thoughts on this... Were the two sealeds on eBay in Q4 2003 from the same seller? Watch the ID(s) to see if they list more. Silver-base CD or green/red/blue (obvious CD-R)? If there's a back insert, probably no way to tell w/o cracking the wrap. Silver doesn't mean it's not a
