SEVERAL SPECIAL COLLECTABLES AVAILABLE NOW!!! BE FAST!!!

Postby Rudy » Tue Mar 10, 2009 6:21 pm

This guy is selling a bunch of On-Line Systems games with buy-it-now!!! It just got listed!

I already bought one (enough for now), but there's several more! Go have a look!

http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/skezer8u63?_nkw=sierra&_sacat=0&_fromfsb=&_trksid=p3911.m270.l1313&_odkw=&_osacat=0

Threshold usually goes for around $100, now you can have it for $60! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (i would buy it if i wouldn't have it already)!!!
Marauder is very rare, but nonetheless overpriced. Should be no more than $100
Ulysis folder is pearced with 2 holes, no good. Goes un-pierced for $50 (isn't that right, QuestCollector? :mrgreen:) and shows up every couple of months.
Mouskattack goes for $50 usually, so too much at $100. Also appears every few months.
Dark Crystal is fair price
Missile Defense and Sabotage at $125 are doubt cases. Rare, but seen it auction around $80 a few month ago.

Good luck!

That's right since the ulysses has holes punched in it, the value has been decreased by alot. Two years ago it would have sold for $100+ but presently, many of the Sierra games have decreased in value (especially the collections; 1997)

I've known about this guys auctions for quite some time now and I would definately love to get some of these. Unfortunately I can't right now. Right now I've been saving to buy something special from a collector (wizard and the princess)

The Marauder may go for over $100. Currently there is another one being auctioned on ebay in complete mint condition. I've been keeping my eye on that.

Mouskattack you can get cheaper. I eventually got mine for about $35. The key is being patient. Sooner or later your chance is going to be there to get some of these cheap. That does, however, not apply to all Sierra games. Some are highly sought after, ones like Mystery House, Softporn, Ultima games, and Time Zone.

Which one did you purchase Rudy?

One you already have: Pegasus II for Apple II. Got it for $60. Could go cheaper, but was reasonable enough + in very good condition.

I know about the other Marauder but i'm not going to bid on it. He charges $35 to ship a small folder to Slovenia, which is nuts. Canada is known for having high shipping rates though, so i generally avoid buying from there.

an indication for the Wizard & the Princess: i purchased that one last year for about $100, the one in the white On-Line Systems folder.

As for Mystery House, Softporn, Ultima games, and Time Zone. The only Mystery House i've seen on auction (autographed by Ken and Roberta!) went for nearly $300 about 3 or 4 years ago. I've actually set aside some money in case it ever shows up again. Softporn was auctioned just a few months ago and sold at best offer for slightly over $300. For the Ultima games, it appears Ultima I is higher in demand than Revenge of the Enchantress. My offer of $200 for your Ultima I still stands by the way :mrgreen:.
I'm not sure about Timezone, cause i haven't seen it auction yet. Another very rare one is High-Res Soccer. It got auctioned a few months ago. My sniper rifle failed on that one, even with a $350 bullet :cry: ... The winner got it at nearly $650 :shock:.

Yikes... I just noticed the seller of Marauder's shipping price. $17.17 and I live in the United States. That is high considering the total weight of the package will be about 8 ounces.

Great buy on the Pegasus II! I bought mine off ebay from a Sierra collector about 3 years ago for about $75. You did well on that.

I would sell you the Ultima but for right now I'd like to keep it. It's like the biggest treasure of my collection. I will, however, help you find one. I stay in contact with a few collectors and maybe something good could come out of that.

I could use some help locating some of these if you can. Perhaps if you were to see one on ebay or know of one being sold? I'd appreciate that a lot. Only do that though if you don't plan on buying it yourself.

I know :mrgreen:

I have about 70 searches running each day on eBay, which i modify whenever i win an auction. Games between 1980 and 1985 cover about half of those searches, so there's hardly any of those old treasures passing by unnoticed ;). So yes, if something of On-Line Systems pops up, i make sure to let the people here know... after i first made my own moves of course :lol:.

That's interesting. I didn't know there was such a thing to help you search on ebay like that. I spend probably 45 mins - 1 1/2 hours searching per week.

That way, you're having a lot of work and probably miss out on a lot of items aswell. Do a basic search, refine it, save the search and mark the checkbox to get email notifications. That way you'll get an email each time new items are listed that fulfill your search criteria. You can make as many searches as you like.

Edit: that Marauder went for $100.45 by the way. Did you catch it?

Thanks for the info Rudy, it will be helpful!

Yeah I saw the Marauder sell. It went for about what I expected. Recently I noticed a King's Quest I (Gray box apple ii release) listed but unfortunately its combined with many more apple ii games which means the price is going to go really high. Kind of depressing.
