Yesterday a Christmas miracle happened, when I went to get my parents to spent Christmas at our house.

My father gave me a box that he found in the attic.
Now my parents attic is best described as a post apocalypse storage facility, so when I moved out many years ago, I couldn't find my MSX stuff.

Several years ago my mother found most if it, after being lost for about 20 years, but I was still missing some of it.
So I was extremely surprised when I opened the box my father found after almost 30 years in the chaos...





Outer box is a bit worn, but still complete, and even in the original bags as well.
(Note: it's a modified for PAL version)

And a Merry Christmas to all...!!
:D

Santa is really kind this year !

I'd love to find that in my parent's attic (which won't happen as I've sold mine yeeeeaars ago).

It's a great piece of stuff !

Thanks!

Wonder what it's worth (not that I'm going to sell it any time soon...)

Wow, nice surprise. Such a miracle would not happen to me since I have moved 3 times and I was always sure to take all my msx stuff with me. So no hidden gems for me.

I'm happy for you, not a cheap hardware at that time. In some cases, stuff like this went directly to the garbage. Crying

Exactly what I was afraid of at the time, since my father has beginning dementia and tends to through our thing that are not his, or he doesn't recognize...
Luckily, he asked this time before scrapping Cool

Something very similar happened to me over the holidays.

I found these treasures in documents that a friend gave me 20 years ago along with other MSX stuff. I was not aware all this time that they were hidden among the listings and I see them for the first time. What a great gift!
