Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes here, but you can always check in at the auction. :thumbsup:

A serious retro Speccy fan told me that a sealed Manic Miner cassette went for £150 on eBay not too long ago, so I am hoping that Mega-tree will beat that. :cool:

Also tried to make auction post interesting by including sketches and descriptions of what would've been a ground breaking game. Oh management, how short sighted can you be?

I thought that they would fetch more than that.

Well done for doing the auction though, nice one :)
