A relative of SPI art director and 1970s wargame legend Redmond Simonsen is selling part of his game collection on eBay:

http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...

These auction items include some interesting SPI logo patches.

Redmond Simonsen provided a great inspiration for my graphic design techniques, and I continue to use these ideas in my own game prototypes today.

I hope this relative really needs the money, otherwise I can think of better, more honourable, things to do with things that belonged to someone as high-class as Simonsen.

If my wife sells my collection on E-fleece, I will come back and haunt her. zombie

The gentleman said these are duplicates and/or triplicates of games that his uncle had, so it makes sense to me to share them.
