The "slot part with paper attached" is a part they inserted into the 3 1/2 inch floppy drives for shipping.  I threw mine away back in the day.  Probably most people did.  I don't know that it would have much value but who knows.  

 

Lots of fun pics there.  The chips with the glass windows should be covered as they are erased by UV light (sunlight).  I am guessing the glue on the stickers gave up and they fell off those eprom chips.  

 

Part of the fun of protos is having that snapshot of their work in progress to try to understand their thought process as they developed the games.  If the data is lost, I would think the value of the proto would be greatly reduced.

Some of the pcb you have posted look like production 7800 32k rom boards (smaller size boards).  If the chips do not have windows or stickers on them and have Atari part numbers printed on them such as begin with CO followed by some numbers then those are production boards that would probably not be worth much at all.

 

Someone will probably want that 7800 high score cart though and if the TT computers are in good shape they could sell well.

 

Is there just one 7800 high score cart?  There were 3 pics posted is why I ask.

Please immeaditely cover the round 'windows' on the eproms with stickers. If left uncovered, the data will be lost.

 

Nice collection.

It's hard to read some of the writing on the stickers. Can list them from what you can read?

Here's what my elf eyes see:

 

2600

-------

Crystal Castles PAL - probably the final version

 

5200

------

RS Basketball 12/16 - Final version

Stargate 12/30 - Late WIP.  Not dumped

Xevious 1-4-84 - Final version.  I assume this came off the labeless 5200 proto

 

 

XE

-----

Food Fight?  All I see is FIGHT.  Might be Fight Night as I think he has a Fight Night proto in the pictures he showed me.

Super Pac-Man 1/18 - Final?  This is an odd date

Lode Runner 8/22/87 - I assume these came from the labeless XE proto

 

 

7800

-------

Prototype High Score cart?

Basketball (Basketbrawl) - Final ROM

Food Fight 6/29

 

 

Lynx

------

Xenophobe 7/25/90 

 

 

Unknown

-------------

Moon Patrol 2/28 - Colecovision?  It has that weird three chip board.

I really have no clue on the prices, I've been out of the prototype game for a while now.  Some of those are pretty valuable though.

Yup.  Absolutely the way to go with protos.  I would list each one separately - explain what you know about it if anything and upload some good photos then see what they bring.

No, but I have a good guess, additional devcart.  That does not look like a proto, more like a devcart.  Mitch?

 

EDIT: Think about it, look at the mount of the through-edge connector, you could not use this with a cart at all.

Great stuff. Nice to see the proto high score cart has a fellow friend, now there are two of them.

Is this stuff you've collected over the years or a group of carts you just recently acquired.
