I'm wondering which system this was made for, if it's a homebrew or commercial, and if it has any value?

Any info will help a lot! Posted Image

Definitely for the VCS/2600, and definitely homebrew. A bit unusual with the wood case and the strange EPROMs. This topic probably doesn't belong in the Prototypes forum, as these sets almost always consist only of released game versions. I assume those are some sort of removable carrier attached to each chip? Can you post a closeup photo or scan of a couple of the chips (right side up, upside down) and a couple of the caddies alone also, if they do come off easily?

Value, who knows? Lots like that come up fairly often, and I don't think they're highly valuable/sought after. Yours might be worth a little more than average since it's so weird. I think they usually go for $20-$30 or so.

Looks like another hobbyist homebrew to me. Gotta love that woodgrain. The use of the chip carrier sockets is a nice touch.

The switch is probably a 2K/4K switch.

That is awesome! Does anyone know if it from the late 70s or 80s? Could this be something a hobbyist made more recent?
