For reference, I paid $25 for Solaris 1.1.2 off ebay back in 2001, which
I think was still shrinkwrapped when I got it, if not, it was at least
in damn near new condition.

A couple of years ago I got NextSTEP 3.3 for RISC (Sparc & HPPA) for
$35.  It was in nowhere near as nice condition as the Solaris set.
