Hmm and I was just about to put up a complete Vectrex boxxed collection. My timing is a bit poor here, as 2 boxxed imagers sold over the last 14 days on ebay.

HOLY COW ME ZOMG!!!1111!!!one

A few people have asked what kind of ballpark I'm thinking of for a price. Fair question. I don't have a good answer right now. Something less than eBay though. I'm not trying to get top dollar, just something reasonable.

I didn't put a price on it because I don't actively collect any more so I only have a rough idea of the collector value. But I realize that isn't very helpful so I'm going to do a little research and put a price out there. If anyone wants to make an offer in the mean time, shoot me a pm.

Thanks!

A few people have asked if I'm interested in trading. Sorry, I'm not actively collecting any more so I'm not interested in classic game trades.

I am however interested in a 24" Apple LED Cinema Display. This one:

Apple Cinema Display

I know it's a remote possibility, but if you've got one I'd be willing to trade my Vectrex collection + cash for the display.

Okay, the gallery is updated with box photos.

Vectrex Gallery

I'm going to close the offer period after Monday, February 1st (tomorrow). I'll take the best offer at the end of the day.

I'll send an update to everyone who has made an offer so far, and give everyone the opportunity to counteroffer for the last day. If you want to get on the list, send me an offer or just send me a PM saying you want to get on the list. I'll let you know what the high offer is.

Thanks!

How much for just the Address correction card? I need to make sure they have my correct address.

BM, you'll have to take that up with the new owner. Wow, I hope you get it straightened out!

Anyway, I've accepted an offer. Thanks to all who were interested! The Vectrex is now moving on to a new home. I'll miss her! :)

If you'll entertain a question... why aren't you more active on this site? Albert posts all the time but the other half of AtariAge is strangely absent from the fun.

Fish! Good to hear from you. I'm scared to ask what your collection is like now. :)

Maybe I'll stop by more often...

Hey Jess,

There's no single reason really. I just got busy with some other projects that took all my time. It's been 100% Albert for many years now. I'm glad he's kept the site thriving!

It's been fun visiting the site again recently, and seeing some familiar names. :)
