Michael | 2 comments I read a book as a kid back in the 80s that keeps coming to mind, or at least the fragments and i'd love to get it back.

In the story there is a guy that lands his spaceship on a planet and i believe he goes hunting but had issues with the ship and was later picked up by another group who i believe sold him off. What i do remember is he was put to sort items and they were various colours and he became very efficient at it which then helps him in a fight he had later in the book.
