Periodically we post interesting auctions (both eBay and Bidiots now) to the front page. Sometimes we slack on this, such as the leading up from before PC5 to the present. :) I'm looking for some links to an interesting Atari-related eBay or Bidiots auction that I can highlight on the front page. "Interesting" means it should be a fairly unique or rare item, or maybe a monster auction with 400 unique 2600 games, prototypes, one-of-a-kind items, and so forth. This thread could be used to periodically highlight auctions of this nature, and then I can pick and choose what gets posted on the front page. If you want to suggest one or more of your own auctions, that's fine, as long as they meet the "interesting" criteria. :)

Thanks!

Maybe you could make this thread a sticky?

I thought about that after making the Polls thread a sticky, but I hate over-using stickies. :) I may do that anyway, since "interesting" auctions such as I am soliciting for are probably of interest to many people, even if they don't make the front page (which most wont, depending on how many people actually post here).

R7 Controller


however it's PSX not Atari, feel free to edit if you don't think it belongs here.

It's not often you see Rarity 10 games on eBay, I don't think, so here's Mangia' :

Yes, but is it PAL or NTSC? If it's NTSC, it's a good auction to post.. :)

It is probably PAL considering it is from Australia.

Here's one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...item=3090215337

I don't really know what to make of these but, I've emailed the seller and they told me that they purchased these at an estate sale. I don't think they'll sell really high and I don't think the're protptypes but, they are unusual none-the-less.

Yes, true but I do think it's odd he has a dukes of hazzard that obviously isn't an eprom, it's a rom. This leads me to believe he may have bough from the same place best electronics did when they got their dukes roms. There are some unique looking pcb's (bottom right corner one?) in that auction. This is the first time I've ever seen them on ebay as well. I've search ebay every day for the past four years...

You haven't searched very hard then. LOL

He has been listing these since December. I have a ton more links to those.

And yes, all the Dukes carts are ROM's, that game was ready to ship but never did.

Yes, I bid on one of the earlier lots.

I think it qualifies as "interesting". Although I also think that the PAL Mangia does, too. Certainly not as rare as the NTSC version, but rare nonetheless.

This looks rather nice:

No first year joysticks, but the PSU looks original, and some games and docs too.

He's sold a few already, from $100 BINs upwards to $300 crazy Tron collectors bidding up Atari items

i'm guessing that is a homemade label to replace one that fell off. notice there is also a white label on the end of one of the other games...next to circus atari.
