I thought it was very nice idea of Trebor to auction off his 30th Anniversary cart so I thought I would sell off something myself to benefit CPU WIZ's medical fund. I wouldn't have a lot of cool 7800 stuff if not for him.

 

The below controller is $75.00 shipped. Priority mail shipping in a box (I think they have a good size for this), US only. Paypal gift payment only.

 

The entire $75.00 will be donated to CPU WIZ's gofundme. The buyer's AA username will be put on the donation. Please contact me via PM if you would like to buy it.

I'm guess-timating there is about $40 worth of in parts in it (stick/buttons/case/donor controller/logo sticker+vinyl), keep in mind the point of this is to help someone out!

 

The controller uses a short zippyy stick, two 22mm Sanwa buttons, and a trimmed down 7800 controller topper, which screws on and off. I will also include a traditional red ball top. It is properly wired for two button play. Uses an official Atari 7800 cable (so the plug has an Atari logo on it). I can check when I get home if it is 8 way AND 4 way, the zippyy sticks do have a changeable gate but some of my project boxes I use are too small to allow their use easily, so I may have ditched it for this one, I don't recall. So assume it's 8 way only for now.

SOLD! Thanks Tunes!

 

EDIT: and donation for $75 made in your AA name to CPUWIZ via the gofundme. Mentioned "via atari controller sale GW" in the memo just to show that it was actually completed.

Wow, thanks to everyone again. :thumbsup:   I'll never be able to repay everyone properly.  I am trying though, but people seem to not accept free stuff from me lately.

 

My Neurologist just died, been seeing him for 14 years, so now I have to find a new one, which will surely lead to more stupid expensive shit like MRI's and EEG's I don't need. :|

Those are all free tests here..
It sucks to know that health care costs so much.
Hope you find good specialist.

WIZ you have it a little backwards, in my mind I am repaying YOU for all your past Atari efforts. :thumbsup:

 

That really sucks about the doctor. Even forgetting the new tests, having a doc you trust is huge, and it's hard to rebuild that relationship with a new guy sometimes.

 

I keep coming up with new 7800 controller ideas, but my basement ain't getting any bigger. Maybe I can sell another next week once I get Tunes his, I've got some fairly unique ones. It would be my pleasure.

The controller arrived today-

After years of D-Pad conditioning, it is awesome to have a reliable, Precision controller. You have no idea what you're missing if you don't have one.

Thank you.
