It's not THAT rare... I've seen several copies go up in recent months, though none were quite as nice as this one.

The thing is, Peter Olafson is a well-known gaming author, and is well-known amongst collector circles. He has QUITE rare stuff in his collection, and some of his items have eclipsed the $2000 USD mark already. He's been liquidating portions of his collections for a few months now, and has enough inventory to keep going for quite awhile, so his auctions are getting alot of notice amongst the collectors, casual and hard-core alike. with that attention comes bids, and bid wars... I've seen a number of his items go for higher-than-average prices while better examples on auction at the same time were closing at much lower prices.

Good for Peter. I've purchased an easy half-dozen items from him, and will continue to watch his items... though I can't afford any of the big-ticket items that I'd have liked to have had (mostly his Sierra titles - I snapped up all of the PCEngine/Turbografx16 games I wanted from him)
