I love Retro Gamer mags, but £600 is steep?!!

Post by focusgaming » Thu Aug 28, 2008 1:36 pm

Just saw this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0247664581

I got most the issues and would love to fill in a few gaps, but would anyone pay anywhere near £600 for the collection?

Just wondered!

For £600 + £20 P&P, it is pure daylight robbery and greedy. :(

Me neither.... just wished I'd discovered it at issue 1 rather than No 2....

Still, one day I may win one on Ebay... £25 is my top whack....

An email of mine to the editor appears in the first letters page in issue 2, which is something I'm still eating out on whenever I bump into other retro gamers which, er, isn't that often...

I agree and I doubt he will get a sale.
However if someone pays it then good luck to him - Everything is only worth as much as someone is prepared to pay for it.

See what happens when you list the item as "Retrogamer" instead of "Retro Gamer".
