Oh sure, I had no intention to mean that, poor folk! I just meant an object that could look like a VIC game cassette at X rays, that is available in tons at every dump, and that has not even the most remote connection with VIC gaming.

Ah okay :) . Back on topic: anyone knows here if at some point in the past this package has been affordable for the average collector? Or was it a Graal right from the start?

The latter really. It took until the late 90s iirc for anyone to even admit on groups that they found a copy... let alone sell one.

At the World of Commodore show in Toronto around 1984 I held a sealed copy in my hand on clearance for $9 Canadian.
I thought about buying it but since I had already moved on to the C64 I passed!

Oh well, I probably would not have had the foresight to keep all the packaging until the 21st century, anyway.

Wow, ouch.

I was coming at it from the angle that once people realised it existed, and that it was very hard to find, that it still took a while for any one to cough up and fess they had a copy, let alone going to sell one. There was the story about finding one in a junk pile of discarded software iirc.

The first complete copy to be sold publicly went for $3600. The second complete copy went for $2600, which is the one I purchased.

Back when I first heard about BitCoin, it was something crazy like 100 BitCoins to a dollar (can't remember the exact number but it was basically worthless at the time). I remember thinking that it was cool, but too complicated for me to understand. So I passed.

If only I had known...imagine buying a few hundred BitCoins back then...ugh..
