Strange eBay auction...

Never seen something like this before

Software Toolworks Secret of Monkey Island sleeves.

The image is just mind-bending. But it's not particularly exciting, in truth.

Tempted to make a really small offer... $2000 is ridiculous, even if it is ~300 sleeves.


It's Enrico Palazzo!

Certainly impressive - albeit obsessive - stuff I think some shrinkwraps are not original as they all look the same and are not wrapped as tight as they originally are.

Always cool to see such a huge collection.

Freddie sold his collection! He is now rich and living a life of luxury, I assume.

Haha! Madness.... $2000 is definitely over the top. I own that sleeve already anyway, that CD version of MI came with my very first SoundBlaster Pro

I wonder how much the complete cd cover/sleeve/CD combo is worth. Maybe I should put it on ebay, then I could buy a new pair of socks.

This is hilarious! Good find!

May favorite part of the description is this:
Quote:
"That's the second-biggest stash of Monkey Island sleeves I've ever seen!"
I also sort of want one of these sleeves just because I used to have this release and my dad cut all the sleeves up. I really don't have a legitimate reason to have one besides that.
