I found this recently. I have 2 so Im keeping one . It is the ultimate Dio set with all the greatest hits from the beginning of his career with Elf to the legendary Dio classics. This also has been signed by the man Ronnie James Dio "MAGIC" Ronnie James Dio It is 100% authentic and part of a radio promotion. The cover has some slight signs of wear but the cd's themselves have never been played or even removed from the box. The true metal fan needs this from one of the true metal gods
