I recently picked up this doom 1 set from the local thrift store for $2 because I thought it looked cool, and now I think it might be worth something after doing some searching on the internet and ebay but not sure. (couldn't find this exact set)

I believe it is the doom 1.666 mail order set, along with a shareware set by gold medallion.

Pictures here: http://s1228.photobucket.com/user/jrstasio/library/Doom

I figure I would give someone a chance here to grab this first if anyone wanted it. I would be more interested in trades then cash (I am more of a console collector). If not I would appreciate it if anyone could give me a ball park estimate on what to expect on eBay.

Thanks.

Looks pretty nice, well done!

In terms of price, I've seen boxes like this go on eBay from ~$50 - $100+. Price probably depends on the version, and v1.666 isn't super rare. You'll get a reasonable price at least.

That was also the boxed version of Doom released in the U.K I believe. Right down to it being 1.666.

That's sort of true, in a few countries including the UK, but in most countries registered Doom was only ever available by mail order.

I'd agree with that price range. So far as scarcity goes, that depends on how much impact the release of Doom 2 had on sales of registered Doom.

For $2 that's an excellent find and having the mail order box makes it a very salable item regardless of version number.

What a deal!

Would you accept $25 plus shipping?

I put it up on eBay and sold it pretty quickly for $100 with buy it now, may have been able to get even more but I was happy. Good pricing information for anyone who is looking to sell their copy!
