When I began searching through the millions of items on eBay today, I had one thing in mind; to find something great from the world of Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, and PC. To say the least, I’m shocked by what I came across. The first item is by far the rarest because there is only one in the world. This isn’t a print or a copy; this is the original cover art for the 1981 PC game Castle Wolfenstein.
This was hand painted by John Benson and later used for the cover art of the game. Castle Wolfenstein, released in 1981, was id Software’s inspiration for Wolfenstein 3D which went on to push the FPS genre to be what it is today. Playing Call of Duty today? Well, this painting was made well before it all began. If that’s not enough for you, the seller is also including the game itself (C64). Bids are being beat over and over (16 bids so far), so watch this one carefully if this is something you must have. You can find the auction linked below:
Next up is an collectible that Riku posted late last month (Riku Dec 31, 2010).
These Playstation Nike’s, as Riku explained, have sold for hundreds of dollars. The auction I’ve come across is currently at only 1 bid for $44.99! With less than 4 days less, this could end with a decent price. You can make a bid right now or wait it out…
This Xbox Kiosk was made to promote the original Xbox which was Microsoft’s big step into the console wars.
Considering how popular and dominating Xbox 360 is now, this is a great piece of history. Also, if you value your original Xbox and feel that it deserves a better area to be set up, this is the set-up for you. You can check out the auction through the link below.
Club Nintendo has released many great items over the years, but here’s one that you can really show off…
This t-shirt has a great Mario & Luigi design on it. If I saw someone wearing this in public, I would feel the need to shake their hand and give a complimentary “awesome” in passing. The shirt is up for a sweet price (knowing it’s only available through Club Nintendo) and you can grab it up today:
