Wowsers... :D

Thats gotta be the biggest ever single sale of items I've ever seen on eBay (gonna keep those pics... they're neat), either that guy has a very big house or furniture didn't play a part in the decor... :)

Just hope he got all that wonderful stuff back inside before it started to rain... :)

Be interesting to follow that one... :)

Just the size of the whole thing numbs you. Too bad I'm not in the area, it would make a good human interest story for my YouTube channel. Damascus Road conversions always make good subjects.

Hope the winner has at least a dozen friends.

That is pretty epic.

I would wager it could easily fetch 4 times as much if it was parcelled out, but I can understand if the guy doesn't want to spend the time on that.

I doubt you'd still have a wife afterward! She'd see you pull up with the load, and instantly imagine the piles of yellowed 80's consoles stacked up in the bedroom, while you chain smoke through a hideous moustache, playing SNES all day in your briefs... :lol:

Ha I got the same problem, well 1) Can't afford it, 2) Can't collect it 3) the wife may kill me it I bought it anyway!
But that is some sweet ass stuff!

There is a 128 there too!!! Why is it all the rare stuff is so expensive ( did I just say that?? ;)) 128, CDTV, A1000, A3000 are gaps in my collection.....and sell on ebay for about £100 each ;(

On 27-Apr-11 at 18:44:54 AEST, seller added the following information:
 Hi everyone and thanks for viewing my listing.

I have noticed that this listing has made it's way onto a whole heap of websites around the world which is very flattering but I am now starting to realize that perhaps it was not a very good move on my part to advertise like this. The listing has generated a bit of heat around some forums and due to the amount of views and the high res photo's, it is chewing up my web hosting bandwidth (the pics are hosted on my own site external to ebay)

I'd like the buyer to be happy with their purchase and I have not described the collection to a very good standard at all, some systems don't work some do - some are in great condition, some are not etc...

With that said, I have decided to drop the listing for now and decide how best to go about doing this again.

My apologies for any inconvenience.

Lastly, thankyou for all the kind comments people have emailed through.





......oops!!!!! Did I start the forums off?????????? lol

Sorry, I linked it to a Sci Fi forum to use in a debate on collecting.  You had a bunch of Doctor Who fans drooling all over it too.  :)

If I was you I'd break it up into different lots.  I'm sure you'll make more money that way and you can even ship some of the smaller items in order to reach a larger audience.

Good luck.

You did notice Dentunes is not the seller but merely quoted the message the seller ended the auction with?

Post by: Lando on April 27, 2011, 04:35:00 PM
I don't think the seller quite grasped the concept of selling on eBay.  More exposure = more views = more bids = more money.

Ending the auction because it is being viewed too much??  It's like cancelling a TV show because it has too many viewers.

Maybe its costing too much?  I don't know - doesn't make any sense to me either.  With the money you'd get, should easily pay for any oversight :D

Hell. The money he would have made would easily cover the few days it was posted! Plus, why go to all the trouble to put all your material out on the lawn, and risk your neck climbing up on your roof in order to photograph it, just to pull out because a lot of people are looking at the pictures! Silly.

The guy had to withdraw the sale for the simple reason he ran out of monthly bandwith on his server and the pics could no longer be displayed... :)

He should have uploaded them to PhotoBucket or somewhere like that where it wouldn't have affected his broadband allowance... :)

Don't think he thought it was going to get the attention it did though... :)

Definitely wasn't my listing. If it was mine I would sell it all separately and, as another poster said, take a month off. There would have been more than enough money in that bunch to warrant it.

You have to put things in perspective a bit, most of what he is displaying is software. I mean look how much room an A500 takes up in the photo... I have 35 x A500 Amigas etc... and hundreds of boxes of Software and thens there's the other Amigas and masses of addons too...

He can have all the consoles and cartridges he likes but I'm one up on him because my entire collection would be Amiga only... LOL

I wouldn't even bother putting out the commodore museum pieces I brought a few years back just for the Amiga bits :p I've got about 20 odd printers from the ice age...

anyway, enough tit for tat :-)

Perhaps he should have just put up a buy now and then it might of ended before cutting into bandwidth lol

I'd been thinking about that for the past couple of days and your right, before the wife made me get rid of over 4000 boxed games years ago (never had a lot of computers or consoles, about 18 max at one time) but if I were to have layed out all those old boxed software I'm pretty sure it would have looked like those pics or bigger... :)

Still those pics are impressive none the less and at least the guy went to all that bother to do it... :)

The dude states that it took him 25 years to come up with his business card design.  Well, it tells me one thing about his getting results, that they come very slow.  Heck, it took him 25 years to figure out a business card.:roflmao:

I would need a football pitch to lay all my stuff out. At times I seemed to be collecting in one go as much as that guy is selling , and I was given the stuff so cost me nothing. Maybe I'll put mine up for sale if it generates that much interest. Could do with getting my house back. Can't recall the last time I saw it...

Just as an example this is what I was 'given' last time I went on my travels...

The guy contacted me and wanted all this added to my collection. Certainly not the only time it had happened.

Scuzz, if you ever sell off your collection, my wife will be glad we live on opposite sides of the Atlantic! :) Not that it would stop my from paying shipping, but kicking up local PSU's / 240->110V tranformers pal->NTSC adapters (To work with NTSC flatscreens instead of bulky CRTs that don't care) would be a bit much. lol
