Holy cow...Sinclair QL and Sinclair QL printer look mint in almost perfect boxes and come with dual floppy and card. FYI for any collectors out there.

Coming form the Netherlands with a 9 day auction currently at only $10.50 and it claims shipping is $15 There is a reserve and I'll be interested to see what it goes for.

"The bid that you entered for the item (254639093193) has been cancelled.
This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing." :o :shock:
It's the first time I see such a thing - I wonder if there really was an error in the listing or the seller sold the items privately.

Looks like he had an offer he couldn't refuse. That's annoying as we will never see it's natural level.


Collector of original and some newer QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't understand how any of them work.
Original BBQL's: 3x German, 1x UK model (plus quite a bit of other old stuff)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
PC with QXLII card installed
Q68 also present

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

At $500+ the cost to the seller to eBay goes up. I'm surprised that eBay let the seller get away with unlisting it. I wonder if the buyer had to give some sort of proof. I suppose if you say "the item has just been destroyed in a fire" what can eBay do. But I bet someone offered them "tax free" a larger amount.

I've contacted the seller. The Bundle was sold already on eBay. However he did not reveal the price. The latest known bid was $500...

Wasn't he at 625€ on the Dutch site?

BTW, I think this UK eBay;er is struggling a bit. Is it a ZX81 or a Spectrum or an Amstrad CPC 464...no picture to clear things up.

As I said, I contacted the seller directly. The final price was as above.
