Ultima: Escape from Mt. Drash for the VIC 20 is probably the most valuable one. I've still got my original cassette, but sadly the box and manual are long gone.

Not sure about that...
(All the below are for Apple versions)
A copy of the floppy version of Akalabeth recently sold for over $4000.

And that's the least valuable version.
The most valuable is the first run, which was distributed in baggies.

Quote from: TheCollectibleUltimaWebsite
This is what Richard Garriott was selling at his local Computerland store in the summer of 1979. He bought some zip-lock baggies and made a couple dozen copies of some hand-done documentation, and started selling them there in the store. His manager sent one copy to California Pacific, and that, as they say, was that. Garriott says he only sold a dozen or so of these that summer. It goes without saying that if you have one of these, you can name your price.

Although I agree, that Vic-20 version is crazy..  ;-)  I'm a fan and collect some (I have a big box Ultima II with map, Ultima III with map and Ultima IV and Ultima V (each of which in varying degrees of missing things, no maps)), but I won't go hundreds, much less thousands..  
I'm crazy, but not like that...

Not seeking to contradict you, *but* I've also seen a couple of the games you mention go for under $10 complete in box.  In fact, I bought one of them myself for a few dollars.

No offense taken ;) I'am checking the Amiga/C64 game market regulary for only a few weeks, two months at best. By now i've already seen Apidya go pretty cheap (30 Euros), but at least on the german market its very rare.

Sometimes people also just ask for insane prices - i just spotted a C64 in working condition with a minimum of perihperals in bundle, and the guy wants 1000€ for it; Well - good luck with that XD

As Franko linked, the UK market appears to be very different, for example. Lots of games that go for 1 - 7 Pounds there would be sold for at least twice the price on the german market, some even pretty expensive. If you find a collector who is willing to pay, that is :)

Let's just hope it doesn't get to the stage the UK 3DO market is at. £18 for Myst, nah, I think I'll just leave it.

Here's another nice example of a very valuable C64 game. (Space Taxi.)

I could buy a yellow car for that and pretend it's a real taxi. or maybe just download it here:

Well I've just spotted a copy of Super Street Fighter Turbo AGA on ebay.

Will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Sadly it's not been marketted very well on ebay what with no pics etc, but will be interesting to see what it goes for nonetheless.

I must add this is NOT my auction.

PS.  Where's the little link and smilies buttons?

Oh well, looks like my Super Street Fighter Turbo AGA is worth nothing.

The ebay auction didn't sell.

Have to say it was one of the worst ebay adverts I've seen for an Amiga game though.

I would say that the two most valuable games consistently would be:

Moonstone (avg. 100-120USD)

Zak McKracken (avg. 60-80USD)

I have only ever seen 1 copy of ninja gaiden for amiga on ebay and it sold for over $500, I think that is the highest single sale I have ever seen of an amiga game.

I should state that I own about 400 complete boxed amiga games and many more c64 disk games too... I think only Jerry Kurtz from lemon64 has me beat on the size of his amiga + c64 game collections of active scenesters.
