And I'm sure you don't understand the value of a 1963 Amazing Spider-Man issue 1 comic… after all, you can just go to Marvel's website and read it there.

Boxed Ultima games are very collectable, and in mint condition can be worth double their original cost. Many of the early Ultimas came with a cloth map and trinket (e.g. the ankh with Ultima IV) which only added to their value.
Of course, Shroud of the Avatar may or may not be collectable, but as is the case with many of these gaming Kickstarters, they are selling nostalgia… memories of the good old days of PC gaming.
