Hi all. My first post here.

 

About 10 years ago I went to an estate sale of a former Atari programmer. I don't know his name but I picked up a huge lot of games. 

 

Recently cleaned out my attic and re-discovered them. Can anyone tell me if there is anything significant about these cartridges. And if they'd be of any value to a collector?

 

Thanks!

Probably $100 each on the Activision ones. The popeye I'm not sure on. Popeye was by Parker Bros. so unless he worked for both companies I think the Parker Bros would have come from elsewhere aside from his workplace. They all look to be final versions.

Shawn is right in target on the Activision games $80-120 each, Pitfall may fetch just a bit more.
A Popeye proto sold last week on Ebay for $246. No idea if this is the same version, but I would say that is a good starting point.
