I like how the seller also states "If you need more details on my definition of mint please email me prior to buying."  I'd like to ask him but sarcasm might get the better of me.  


Lol! Truth. Sometimes when I see auctions like these I often want to send "what the hell are you thinking?" Emails but then I think...meh. :)

Those boxes make me sad.


Don't worry, the seller has you covered (from the listing description): "Item ships Wrapped and Protected"

Cmart you took the words out of my mouth - I find myself thinking the same thing and actually want to contact the sellers to ground them on reality but in the end I go with the same meh.. approach. Like with guys trying to sell a Coleco Donkey Kong CIB for $39.99 - are you serious lol?

Not CIB, but it is boxed. It is missing the documentation.

Some sellers will completely neglect the boxes and manuals and list as mint because the carts aren't scratched and still have decent labels. I see this a lot with "mint" consoles where the console is decent but the box looks like the owner buried their cat in it then changed their mind and dug it up a decade later...on a rainy day.

Best line of the day, although the Rev in Vegas one was good too. :)

A semi-sealed Intellivision console that still has the Astrosmash Competition flier in it.

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 111343783431

 

The bidding on this one will be fun to watch...

It seems suspicious - a new seller and a new buyer.

Price is WAY to high, even for some of us who would overpay. I have to think a Mint CIB original with the Master Component info on it would be worth more than the sticker box? But what do I know.

Seriously????  I know there are some folks that are insane for variation (I would be if I had the funds) but doesn't this seem way overkill?

... well the bidding got to $44 and then someone went "MUST BUY IT NOW" at $500.  I guess they really wanted the item.  I think that flyer is very rare (I never even heard of it until this sale).

I kind of want to message the seller saying, "There's an error in your listing. Those are Atari games!"

I wonder how he tested it to state that "the console is in working order."

Other than Steve, does anyone else own copies of the Intellivision, Inc Loco-motion cart and/or manual? I'm trying to gauge the rarity. Last I heard, still no box has been identified.

A related question to the above - I have a copy of Tron Solar Sailer that has black & white instructions, but that is the only difference; it came with the gold label cart and overlays.  

 

Could this have been a late release that was sold in a baggie?

That's always been my assumption, too.

What they said.

I'm on the lookout for the Tron SS, Frog Bog, and Checkers I.I. manuals.....and the black and white Backgammon cart ;-)
