Romero announced via Twitter that he's now auctioning off his original five Doom 2 floppy disks on eBay and will sign them if the victor requests so. Romero announced the sale on Twitter, pledging to sign the discs if the highest bidder requests it.

"I've chose to put up a set of DOOM 2 floppies (3.5") on eBay!

Romero noted in his listing that this is the original launch version of Doom 2 (v 1.7).

The condition of the set is "very good", with no defects other than natural wear of the glue that holds the labels to the disks. "These are only the 3.5 disks".
