I wanted to create a single post for the 3DO US Library Collection that I posted yesterday. In case any of you want to build on your 3DO collection, this would be a good starting point just to check out the pictures. I believe the seller took a picture of everything he has so it’s pretty much right in your face. I added all the pictures from the auction to this post. This is what’s written in the description:
“This is the Ultimate 3DO Collection up for auction. In ten years, there has never been another 3DO auction that comes remotely close to this collection. Actually, there has probably NEVER been another 3DO collection like this up for auction on Ebay.
In the past ten years or so, there have been maybe 3 or 4 large 3DO collections up for auction, but even the best of those were still 70 to 80 games short of a complete US library. Additionally, the games they did have were missing many of their long-boxes. They were also missing many of the rare titles.
To start with, this auction includes the ENTIRE US 3DO library – IN BOX. There are over 180 titles in this lot. Every 3DO game that was sold in long-box format is included in this auction WITH its long-box. As some collectors will know, there were a limited number of 3DO games that were not sold in long-box format, and those games are also included in this auction. These types of games include the Woody Woodpecker titles, the adult titles, the Tom Kite mail-in disk and various sampler/demo disks. Virtual Vivid is the one adult 3DO title which was never packaged with a sleeve or long-box. All of these non-long-box titles that were originally sold with cardboard sleeves include their respective sleeves in this auction. Again, every US 3DO release, demo, and sampler is included in this auction with its original box or sleeve.
Additionally, there are a number of games in this collection that are still factory sealed / brand new.
As can be seen in the pictures below, all of the rare US titles are accounted for. Some of the highlights include Dinopark Tycoon Boxed, Lucienne’s Quest Boxed, Woody Woodpecker 1, 2 and 3, all of the Adult titles with their cardboard sleeves, The 3DO Demonstration CD, Plumber’s Don’t Wear Ties Boxed, Mathemagics Boxed, Slopestyle Boxed, and so on.
Also included in this auction is a Complete in Box Panasonic FZ-1, the 3DO Flightstick Pro, the Memory add-on, the VCD adaptor, the Mouse, the Game Gun, the Arcade Stick and an extra 1st party Control Pad. All of these items are boxed in their original boxes as well.
Those of you who collect for the 3DO know just how rare an auction like this is. It can take MANY YEARS to put together a collection like this. Many of these items are extremely difficult to locate, and are even more difficult to find with their boxes or sleeves.
As expected, this is a large and heavy assortment of hardware and software. Local pickup is of course welcomed. I entered roughly half the size and weight of the collection into Ebay’s shipping calculator, which means that I will be splitting the cost of shipping with the buyer.
Given the size and weight of this collection, shipping outside of the US will be very expensive. If you are located outside of the US and are very interested in this collection, please message me and we can discuss shipping options.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and/or if you would like to see additional pictures.
Thank you for looking!”
