Take home a bit of gaming history with original Castle Wolfenstein painting
Gaming collectibles are a dime a dozen these days, with original cartridges, rare sealed copies of games, random swag and the occasional Etsy-selling Holly Hobby tossing off Mushroom Kingdom scarves and original Halo fan-art. However, it’s not often that gamers can get their hands on the original, de-facto artwork for games, much less titles thirty years old.
Now, if eBay seller -puck- is to be believed, fans of the platforming classic Castle Wolfenstein (that would inspire to the beloved Wolfenstein 3D) can now purchase John D. Benson’s original painting that decorated the Commodore 64, Atari 2600, DOS and Apple II game boxes. Sure, it’s not art work from the most famous of Wolfenstein games, but for a hundred bucks (as the bid currently stands with six days left in auction), fans of retro classics would be hard-pressed to find something cooler than this. Hell, anything with a badass Nazi-hunter, pulp art feel is awesome, and the gaming connection just brings it all together, don’t you think?
