I have this brand new copy of DOOM II in it's original factory seal. It is the big box kind. It's extremely hard to find these days. If there are any collectors here who want this, let me know. It's on ebay right now.

Holy crap! Someone out there with one, too!

Actually, my box was damaged during a small flood in the basement, along with my Terminator Collector's Edition (T1, T2, Behind the Scenes all on VHS, plus a big book). Thank God only the boxes were damaged, as everything inside survived. And my original numbered collector's ed Star Wars Monopoly survived unscathed! Still isn't worth anything thanks to Lucasarts allowing an un-numbered edition to be produced... Stupid George Lucas.

I found this at a book store and I nearly fell over. It was at an excellent price. I already owned both a physical copy and a digital copy through Steam. Trying to sell this to help funds towards a new GPU and it's taking up space.

You would think if it was sealed the water would not damage the box.
Wouldn't the numbered collectors edition of that Star Wars game still be valuable since it's the numbered edition? It may devalue it but you can still tell it's numbered and more rare.

My copy had a 1/4" hole on the front and back in the shrink wrap. They do that so air pressure changes don't make the plastic blow up, but it allowed the water to soak in.

It is still more rare than the normal (not collectors edition) but every time I've tried to sell it, with collectors' guide in hand, people always give me BS about, "You can buy that in the store for $24.99, so I'm not giving you any more than that." It was worth over $1000, but when the game went back into production, it's down to $300, and nobody will touch it. Nobody understands that "Limited Edition Numbered Collectors Edition" for pre-prequel Star Wars gear is worth something! I'll hang on to it for another 23 years, sell it when I hit 60, maybe it will provide my retirement! LOLZ!
