I'm pretty serious about selling my recently acquired Atari 2600 Superman cart labeled with the Sears Tele-games logo. Photos attached are of the cart.

Serious offers only, plz!

I hold the option to refuse all proposed offers, close the offer, and keep the cart for myself; no offense to any interested parties.

I would prefer to NOT go through any auction sites & have them rake me over the coals with fees & whatnot.

I will accept payment through PayPal only! No other method, please! (Just want to ensure everyone gets what they want.)




I have received a few offers already, just want to open it up to as many collectors as possible since this appears to be a diamond in the rough & in all fairness, everyone deserves a chance.c.jpg b.jpg 8.jpg 7.jpg 6.jpg 5.jpg 4.jpg 3.jpg 2.jpg 1.jpg

I'm not collecting 2600 carts any more so I'll offer $200 if you don't mind me flipping it on eBay to help pay for what I am collecting. :)

It is a super rare label variation, for a long time, people thought it was just a myth. So yeah, it's worth a bunch

Congrats on the sale :) . I remember one coming up for auction on eBay when I was in college (this was...2003, I think? maybe '04?)...it sold for $700-something back then, but I think it was either the first one discovered or one of only a couple at that time.

The greed conclusion: EVERY SUPERMAN PICTURE LABEL IS WORTH MORE THAN $500. I WILL BUY EVERY ONE I CAN FOR $500 TO FLIP FOR $700.

The collector's conclusion (and my conclusion): Prices on this will level out well below that price as more (not very many more) pop up.

Maybe I'm just nutty, but I don't believe that the color yellow and the "Sears Telegames" logo is worth $500 :ponder:

Not nutty at all, but it's a market thing. I would like to pay $100 for one, I could stomach that for a nice rare label variation. Unfortunately I may have to pay quite a bit more.

The truth is often somewhere in between, but not always...

Agreed. It's no more fun than the game you can pick up for a buck or two. The label doesn't make it a different game. Some of you collectors are whack.
