The only reason anyone would pay such a price for either of those is simply because those copies came from a very limited initial production run that was made at a time when nobody could have imagined the success that the series would enjoy. As such, a collector might consider them to be worth a mint, but only another serious collector would ever consider paying such a price. I still have my original Apple II copies of both Akalabeth and Ultima (both work fine), but those came from a larger production run that came very soon after the ones in the auction. The differences between what I bought and what was up for auction are pretty much zero except for that, but that is enough to make mine worth next to nothing to a collector. They're good enough for me though, and I'd rather spend the big bucks on something else.
