I just put up 5 lots of 6 to 7 games per lot of boxed games. All have instruction manuals except Solaris. Since the auctions were finally free for this week, I decided to get these on. All games were tested today by me and worked. I only took pictures of the boxes since only the first picture is free. I'm not getting into detail as to which versions the carts or manuals are and have no plans on taking any additional pictures. For the price I'm offering the minimum bid, that's about all the effort I'm giving. I spent 3 hours today doing 5 whole auctions. Just needed to make some room, so hopefully these 32 boxes will be out the door. Link is here for auctions.


If you are looking for complete in box or boxed games with possible missing instructions, look at my store listings. Besides what's already there, the following games, mostly complete in box will be added over the next few days: California Games, Moon Patrol, Enduro, Pitfall, River Raid, Mario Bros., Gunslinger, Codebreaker Sears, Maze, Space Invaders, Target Fun, Tron Deadly Discs, Racquetball, Ms. Pacman, Maze Craze, Star Raiders, Frogger, ET, Canyon Bomber, Outer Space, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pacman Sears, Pacman Atari, Berzerk, Night Driver, Yars Revenge, Donkey Kong Coleco, Megamania, Asteroids Sears, Slot Machine, and Superman. These of course will be scanned cart, manual and box plus any extra stuff as I always do. This will bring my total boxed Atari 2600 games to probably over 130.

So you buy, check them against the variation list, then sell em? Not a bad way to do it. Do you end up keeping the ones that aren't on the list yet?

I don't collect variations for the most part. I'll keep things like red label versions, or error versions like the Pole Positn or Raiders Lost Ark end labels. I'd also keep grey label variations. One is enough for me. I don't need every year either.

I will buy lots of boxed games or even boxes without games. I have a couple of thousand loose carts, so for the most part, unless the game is rarer, I'll be able to put a game in the empty box, and hopefully have the manual too. I used to buy lots of just manuals back in the 1990s, so I have a few hundred manuals.

Anytime I do make a purchase, I do check everything against the list to make sure it's not a new variation.

Just for future auctions, you can take pictures and upload them to photobucket and then in ebay description select html, then paste the photobucket link for html. The only catch is you need to delete the first part before the< tag so all you have left is something like this.

<img border="0" alt="Photobucket" src="http://"""""""""""""".jpg">

That will display the images you host for free in your desrciption at a size way bigger than ebay shows.
