Whoa, some nice stuff in there, but to tell you the truth I'm not really sure about the prices...

Thanks gryzor. It's very difficult to put a price tag to something who recall our childhood and it's real that we can see all sort of prices on ebay now, so i'll wait for the end of the auctions and see if i'm very wrong.
I've add some pictures for 3" games discs and cassettes.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I know it's always hard to price these things. What's more, I'm not saying your auctions are expensive, merely that, as big packages, the end price is quite high. I could be tempted to get your first package, but the thought of postage *on top* of the €350 makes me shiver...

Some people ask me to sell by items but my goal is:
 - to sell them as a good start for a collection,
 - i dont want to spent my all time on ebay,
 - and at the end to have remaining parts that nobody want.
 - with the account, pay a good garden game for my children who will prefer to play with this than my old computer ...
That's why these big package. So yes, the bad side is the price. I know.
Some already offers me more than 70€ for only 1 game ... but i decline.

I think I've got an addiction to this stupid Ebay thing. I've just gone and bought ANOTHER 6128 for no good reason other than I happened to be on ebay just as the auction was about to close!

I know I'm always looking on Ebay for bargains but I'd already seen this and decided I didn't need another. But it was just there and looking so unloved... :)

Still, hopefully I'll be able to get the drive working as the other 2 don't work even after changing the drive belts.

It's a C64! Will he give me the 150 in cash, or do I need to give him my bank details :D

Interestingly this over priced GX4000 comes from the same guy who repeatedly keeps selling counterfeit GX4000 cartridges. I guess he likes fleecing the market. Still, this auction looks legitimate apart from the stupid cost!

The guy has a fairly high rating so i think the guy is at least semi-legit. Trying to sell as expensive as possible is not a crime (sadly) .. something that ive noticed is happening to the amstrad disc games lately (everyone seem to try to sell em first at £40 "buy-em-now" on ebay .. instead of the more usual open auctions from £1). Of cause he should know better as this isnt the first time his been reported and none of us would be unhappy if he sold em as "homemade" carts instead.

@Bryce: because of the box? Well, not that silly I would guess... plus it's UK-only, so that's another minus. I'd expect something like 6-70 quid?


@beaker: hahaha, damn, imagine buying a few when it was selling for a tenner...

Well the box will attract some, but mainly because they tend to go for silly prices. This one might stay low, due to having to collect it yourself from somewhere obscure.

While we're at it, here's some AY--3-8912 for sale, for anyone who needs to fix their CPCs sound/keyboard:
GI AY-3-8912A 3 voice Programmable Sound Generator for Sinclair and Amstrad etc.

I was watching it too. That's a silly price.

Bryce.

Edit: Ok, now it's at €265 ! No matter how much you like blue keys, that's just a stupid price to pay.
