More CoCo Collecting....

Greetings all and Merry Christmas!!! I hope everyone out there in CoCo Land had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. Looking thru eBay this morning I found a few intriguing items and thought I'd share a few of them. If you arelookijng to collect old Radio Shack catalogs, you'd be in luck as there seems to be quite a few. Since this is a CoCoCentric Blog, I'll focus only on the CoCo stuff ;-).

TRS 80 Color Computer-CCR-82 Cassette Recorder-4 Carts

Here's a nice looking CoCo2, cassette recorder and a few carts. All cables seems to be present. Not a bad price at all and shipping seems reasonable as well.

Tandy Color Computer Disk Drive FD502

A single FD-502 FDD and controller. Again, nice price and reasonable shipping. Would make nice addition under the Christmas tree.

Vintage Tandy Color Computers 2 & 3 with Accessories

Here we have a CoCo2 and a CoCo3, joysticks and a few carts. Seller says the CoCo3 only displays a green screen. Could just need the GIME reseated. Price and shipping are both very fair.

Tandy Color Computer COCO Collection

This seller has a plethora of CoCos (I, II and III). Quite a few games and other packs like an O-90 and a DC Modem. There are even a couple of cassettes, but, no cassette player.

Vintage Tandy 128 COCO 3 Color Computer

Very nice looking BOXED CoCo3. Perhaps a TAD yellowed, can't really tell from the lighting of the photo. Where I have problems is the shipping and the actual price. $45.00 is a little high for a starting bid and $105.00 Buy It Now for a 128k machine is just ridiculous, eve for a boxed CoCo3 IMO. And $20.00 for shipping is also a tad high. I know there was a flame-fest on the CoCo mailing list a few weeks back (almost made me cancel my subscription again) about this very subject. See the next auction for a reasonable shipping price...

Vintage: Tandy 128K Color Computer 3 "NO RESERVE"

Looks to be a nice CoCo3 with typing tutor in it's original box. Shipping price is very reasonable.

And finally, my INSANE auction of the week....

tandy color computer 3

While the starting price is alright, this VERY yellowed unit is located in Michigan and the shipping prices are just stupid. $33.80 for UPS ground and $22.71 for USPS Parcel Post. Not fair for shipping at all.... >:P

There really is a good bit more CoCo Goodness on eBay right now. Especially if you're into collecting cart based software. Lots o' goodness right now. Let's hope it all goes to a good CoCo lovin' home!!!
