If you're a retro-enthusiast with cash to spare, you can now buy signed, original copies of Doom 2 from one of its creators: John Romero.

John Romero's Doom 2 floppy disks. A copy of the latter, without its box or manuals, is now on eBay with its current bid set at $900.

Romero noted in his listing that this is the original launch version of Doom 2 (v 1.7).

No shots fired, but calls prompt lockdown at military post
An emergency situation seems to be under control at Redstone Arsenal following the report of a possible active shooter. Gates to the complex were initially closed, however some were reopened, and movement on streets nearby was restricted.

Chances are he didn't expect this much money to be tossed his way. The starting bid was $10 United States dollars but this has since increased to a whopping $406 USD. "NO BOX included - these are only the 3.5" disks". Back then you could get it on a CD-ROM - which were still pretty expensive back then - or you could get it on five floppy disks. But 60 bids later, it has hit the $900 mark, with the auction scheduled to end at 6:13 a.m. PT / 9:13 a.m. ET tomorrow.

Romero promises that the disks don't contain any defects but, since they are 23-years-old, the glue from the label is inevitably coming off.
