Found a brand new pro controller still sealed in plastic in a mint condition box while going through my collection. I already have one opened which I've used in the past and intend to keep and have no need for this second one I guess that's why I never opened it. I see these insane selling prices on Ebay but I've never seen one like mine to compare it to. Just wondering if anyone knows where I could find out the approximate value of this sealed controller so i can sell it

I recently discovered a sealed one amongst a job-lot auction I won. I almost feel guilty having three Pro Controllers now...almost ;)

It's something I don't really want to sell, but if the prices really are that crazy and the reproduction ones are as good as the originals, I'd consider it.

Put on EBay for 7 days starting at 99c. The ending price is the value.

I got a near mint used one at a store for $20 back in July. Since yours has the box I'd say $50 or so ;)

I imagine it will look like a pro controller in a box.

I was watching an auction with a sealed one about a year ago and it ended at $300. It was in very nice shape. I haven't paid attention to the market in the last year, but it gives ya a good idea what one sold for.

 

I wonder how the production of the new Pro Controllers will affect the value of the original pros.

I'm guessing if the new controller works as well as the originals, the price may come down.....

......or it will generate more interest in the originals and they will continue to climb to crazier prices.

What kind of plastic is it?s. Is it the kind of plastic that is more rigid and thick or the kind you can find at GameStop back rooms that is kinda stretchy? If its the latter, it isn’t original and has been resealed.

The plastic is thick and rigid all around bought it over 15 years ago direct from an Atari dealer along with one I've used. Opened one but not the other it's been in storage ever since. Probably going to put it up on Ebay before the reproductions come out as I think itll drive the prices down
