#4277349 What did you buy today?.........

Posted by Atari_Bill on Yesterday, 11:19 AM

With the price of this one on the rise I was beginning to think Id never find an affordable copy. Finally hit a decent BIN. Very excited to get it.

#4276991 I actually got a good deal...

Posted by Atari_Bill on Fri May 17, 2019 3:43 PM

I think you did fine. Besides a nice box for the system there are the patches with letters and a few newsletter items that I really like. Id be very satisfied with that deal.


#4273307 Sears Picture Labels - To collect or not to collect?

Posted by Atari_Bill on Fri May 10, 2019 6:40 PM

Honestly, the Sears picture labels are just about the favorite piece of my Atari collection. I absolutely love that 70s feel that they have. If you dont get too hung up on the pic Superman label, they arent impossible to find. A couple are a little tough but the entire run (minus Superman) is certainly achievable. I would recommend them personally.

Is the back flap folded? Nice copy, btw- congrats on owning that!:)


No it’s in pretty nice shape.

Yeah, it's been a while since a nice copy cane up for sale. Have you ever seen any other Telstar Arcade boxes that didn't have the flap folded?

Like this one?

#4239299 Bigfoot and Atari Collecting

Posted by Atari_Bill on Sat Mar 16, 2019 1:14 PM

This happy (boy) is a crap seller while trying to fill some gaps in my 2600 collection I ran into a bunch more where he lists 3 at once. Why not just list one at a time instead of rubbing 3 at a time in your face at high prices?


Because thats his MO. I lately see him showing cases next to sealed product. I know hes probably bought a few cases of things from Venezuela, but I think hes trying to make it seem like hes got hundreds of cases of unopened product. I believe very little if what this dealer says.

Too bad you had a reserve on the qubes or else schoolgirl would be the proud new flipper :roll:


Awwwww. Breaks my heart. 😛


#4222223 What am I missing on such a high price here?

Ohhh! That Track and Field Big Box!! - Nice


Thats tough to find in decent shape! The box is so flimsy.


#4221807 What am I missing on such a high price here?

The link is a finished auction. Not just a listing with a Buy It Now.
 
Seems like the seller has a couple bidders bidding crazy prices on more than one of his listings.


Seems a little suspicious to me for these 2 bidders to be bidding common items to this level, but who knows?

#4207271 Colecovision Auction Watch

Posted by Atari_Bill on Sun Jan 27, 2019 4:34 PM

Nice, you got that for a steal!
Still has to be 1 of the hardest boxes imo! :)


Box has some bowing to it but very clean and no tears at all. Cart and instructions very nice too.

I've been saying this for years. People who are collecting for "retirement" are going to be sorely disappointed unless they sell in the near future. I'll never believe these items will hold long term value as the primary consumers die off.

I'm not sure if the unhappy one is the one who lost or the one who won at that price ;)


My thinking exactly. Im guessing this was two folks that both put in a rediculous bid thinking that nobody would be stupid enough to go that high.
