  1. AND THE WINNER IS THE WONDER007 MAN......CONGRATULATIONS AND MANY MANY THANKS. JUST FOR ALL TO KNOW....SOMEONE HERE POSTED A COMPLAINT TO EBAY TO GET MY ACCOUNT CLOSED. I WILL NOT REVEAL HIS NASTY NAME, BUT I THINK IT WAS REALLY CHICKEN DOO DOO. I'LL HAVE IT STRAIGHTENED OUT IN A DAY OR TWO BUT IT WAS A NASTY THING TO DO.
  2. Well then my friend wait until tomorrow night. I've got some new items going up and a couple are really nice.....Even another large poster....
  3. Shawn, I'm almost 100% sure it's the finished product. They never sent out early work to the reviewers. It was usually a finished product which was being readied for release in the next few weeks and since magazine lags were usually long they were sent out before the game was released, but always the finished product. Sometimes even the instructions were not the final instructions that landed up in the retail box. Anthony PS: Glad to see there's some action here.
  4. Well as usual the last minute rush shoots the prices to the sky. Thanks to all who viewed and especially thanks to those who bid. AND THE BIGGEST THANKS TO THE BIG DOG....WOOF WOOOF! THANKS, ANTHONY
  5. Finally a bid. I was beginning to think there was no interest and I'd take it down. But, $25.00, come on there must somebody who'd like to add this to there collection. Anthony
  6. LAST CHANCE...THEY'RE ENDING TONIGHT FRIDAY MARCH 21st GOOD LUCK
  7. Hi, I've decided to try to auction off my Activision Decathalon PROTOTYPE right here on Atariage. I'll take bids by just posting your bid below. The auction will close at 10:00 PM EST Sunday using the clock here on the board. In other words if the clock continues the way it is it will show 8:00 AM at the close Sunday night. So don't eat too much Easter dinner and fall asleep on this one. I hope everyone will have a chance at this. I've listed everything on the URL below. GO GET EM' Good Luck Anthony http://www.mrpaperauction.com/decathalon.htm
  8. I was thinking it's too small.... Just checking for a time stamp
  9. Hi I've listed a few more things on eBay. They are listed for just 5 days as I wanted to list some more tomorrow and I'll list them at 7 days to spread them out a bit. No real big items today. Thanks for your time. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MESE:IT http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MESE:IT http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MESE:IT http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...me=STRK:MESE:IT Thanks, Anthony
  10. Hey a BIG Thanks to all who bid and especially a HUGE Thanks to Wonder007 for his purchases. I'll be putting a few more things up tomorrow Sunday or Monday. Anthony
  11. The winners, should anyone bid on the 2 press release and picture packages I have on eBay tonite, Saturday March 15th, will have them Priority Mailed to them as soon as they pay so they can come on here and tell everyone what they're getting. I will give them back there money if they get anything but what I say is there. The paperwork pictured is what they will get, nothing less. NO COPIES, other than what I received, if that was the case. And in this case they are nice clean, no yellowing, pieces of paper that looks like it came from a printer. Certainly not a copy of any kind. Anthony PS: If anyone doesn't understand what happened in the case that's being talked about I'll try to clear it up. It's actually very simple. I received 3 eproms/protos in one shipment with a letter from Atari, which was supposed to be signed and returned, but I don't think anyone did it. I sold the 3 proto's seperately. I stated that since I only had one copy of the original letter for 3 games that I would have to make copies of the letter for the other 2 games. It was stated in the ad just what was happening. Let me also add this. The original was fading fast as it was a cheap Xerox copy, so a copy was better as it was going to last. And also as far as the letter, it's not like it was signed by an Atari exec where a signature might have been involved, it was just some Atari letterhead scribbled on by somebody in the press department what was being sent to me. So what difference would there be. The letter was just a provenance item. Not something that was attached to the game in any way. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think this whole thing is a lot about something that was done properly and not anything done fraudulently. But that's my take. I've said already I wasn't going to post anymore about this, but I wanted to say that if there is a winner I will ask them to come on and tell everyone exactly what they received. Just to clear it up. Anthony
  12. Hi, I've got a couple of prototypes left that I'd like to auction off. I know that auctions have been held on Atariage in the past but don't know all the particulars of how the best way to do it is. A little heads-up would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for anyone who can point me in the right direction. Thanks, Anthony
  13. THANKS WIZ AND Thanks to all who have visited my auctions and especially to the bidders. Good luck on them and on your collections... Anthony
  14. Also remember when I posted this TCM image and he lost it over 150dpi 8x10 cause I removed the watermark? I don't know about losing it, but I was a little upset and I'll tell you why. When I'm selling something like that and if memory serves me the guy who bought it paid quite a bit, I'd like the person who bought it to have the right to say ok here's a good copy of it for everyone to make a copy of. Anthony Nooo, You got all nutty cause you said it would take away from the price you could sell the poster for. Don't lie to try and make yourself out to be the goodguy, you where only worried about the sale price not making sure the community got a "good copy" of it or you would have sharedd "the good copy" yourself. Whatever you say...I don't want to make this 2 year old grudge you seem to have for me into World War 3. Let it drop, OK, I'm the bad guy and you were just doing something nice. Good Luck and Good Health to you and may your collection grow by leaps and bounds. Anthony
  15. Except for the time you sold protos with documentation on ebay showing pictures of the actual paperwork you said was included and instead shipped photocopies. Several here were affected. i do somewhat remember this problem, it happened a few years ago. it should be in an old thread here on AA. i forget what exactly was being auctioned off... FYI Joystick Jolter, buyatari is a well respected collector and has been around here for many years, very honest and super friendly! Rick Rick, I didn't say buyatari was good, bad or indifferent. I just stated the facts that I know are true. And I will say again a letter from a manufacturer to a reviewer would rarely be a singly typed letter concerning a review copy. It was usually a copy of some kind. Whether done on some Xerox or printed up by a printer, it was what it was. Just because they sent out a copy of a letter that does not mean that I sold anything fraudulently. If I said it contained the letter I received or it was a letter concerning the release of a game, that's what it was. Let's remember if Atari, Activision, Imagic or any of the larger companies was sending out a couple of hundred review copies they certainly weren't going to sit there and type an individual letter to each and every person. And technology was not like today when you can have a computer spit out letters to people on a mailing list by just clicking a mouse. Now fine here's the problem I stated earlier. Buyatari is a well respected collector, very honest and super friendly. He remembers this story about paperwork. Did it happen to him, did he see the copied paperwork and could see for himself that it was something that I would have copied or did it look 20 years old. Or did someone just post it. How many times has someone posted on Atariage something that turned out to be not the whole truth or just a bit of a slanted story. I'll say this CPUWIZ is very well respected member of the community here and he stated that you could trust me. So now does that besmerch buyatari. Of course not, but it just goes to show you that people have opinions and that's all they are is opinions. An opinion is not fact. And last but not least, let's just suppose it was a copy, how many proto's do you know about that were bought with any kind of background paperwork. Most people buy a cartridge and that's it. No nothing else. I guess I've gone on a bit long here, but when someone drops a little do do on you, you should stand up like a man and speak your peace. Oh yes I like to write as well. Was doing it about these games over 20 years ago and never thought I'd be doing it again now. Thanks Anthony
  16. And finally I'd like to thank all the members who looked or bid on my auctions. I have more and will have more in the future as I'm going to try to sell most of the things I have left. I'm going to try to offer a proto on eBay but I'm sure with just the things I've read here they'll get a report about it and take it down. I also have a couple of 2600 proto's I'd like to sell too. Unfortunately if eBay won't let me sell them I guess they'll just remain in a box until I'm gone and someone throws them out. It's unfortunate that there are people who would contact eBay and have things taken down out of spite or hate, but then life is filled with unfortunate happenings. I've learned since my stroke to just let these things roll off my shoulders and say, "Oh Well". Thanks again to all and keep watching. By the way the person who bought them was a member years ago and has bought from me before. Wether he's still around I couldn't tell you, but he's a big time collector, I will tell you that. Thanks again, Anthony
  17. Also remember when I posted this TCM image and he lost it over 150dpi 8x10 cause I removed the watermark? I don't know about losing it, but I was a little upset and I'll tell you why. When I'm selling something like that and if memory serves me the guy who bought it paid quite a bit, I'd like the person who bought it to have the right to say ok here's a good copy of it for everyone to make a copy of. It's the same as someone selling an unreleased proto that no one else has. Why should a seller allow it to be downloaded before he sells it. It should be up to the buyer to do so. You can say what you want about that practice, but it's what I felt was right for my buyer. If you're in the same position you should do what you feel is right. I certainly don't think it's bad business or that I did anything wrong. If you wanted to allow all the members to have a nice picture to copy, you should have bought it and done so. Anthony
  18. Except for the time you sold protos with documentation on ebay showing pictures of the actual paperwork you said was included and instead shipped photocopies. Several here were affected. Well you remember something I don't. I never sold anything with photocopies unless I so stated I was doing so. I can only remember one time when I sold 2 proto's and they were both listed with the same document so one person had to land up with a copy. But that was specificly listed as such. I don't know why you say this but if it happened to you why do you tell everyone about it. If it didn't happen to you it's just word of mouth and maybe the person who told you this never even won anything from me. I'm honest and wouldn't try to fool anyone about what I was selling. Let's also remember that many of the letters sent out to reviewers in those days were nothing but canned letters that may well have been a photocopy to begin with, but certainly not a photocopy that I made. It's easy to besmerch someone's character or reputation and very hard to prove one wrong. If you've got a story that has happened to you I urge you to tell everyone. But I also urge everyone to remember that because someone says something about another person that does not make it the truth.
  19. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and all who have bid....Lots of good stuff coming down tonite...added some Nintendo and Colecovision stuff too.
  20. That is really great news Anthony, I had wondered from time to time. Guys, don't you worry about dealing with him, first of all, his stuff is top notch and you will get what you see in the auction. I've gotten some amazing items from him and I have nothing but "two thumbs up" to say! Thanks, I'm feeling a lot better. Can do just about anything again and feeling better everyday. I'm loving life and let me add to all you youngsters out there. RMEMBER The value of time The success of perseverance The pleasure of working The dignity of simplicity The worth of character The power of kindness The influence of example The obligation of duty The wisdom of economy The virtue of patience The joy of organizing The improvement of talent The last being with your Joystick HA HA The sound of a couple of them may not be exciting, but believe me, if you're laying in a bed almost able to do nothing they are all wonderful..... Anthony
  21. BRUCE, I know you didn't ask for it but I accept your apology or response if you'd rather call it that. By the way the first account had only 2 names, the first, the second and back to the first. The second which was my sons, had only one. The first thing listed was eBay assigned name before he chose his name. I apologize to you if I mis stated anything or that you disagree with as I'm always calm and quiet but just felt an afront on my character, something you may have had legitimate reason to have but I think rather than soil someones character in public it is always best to try to get an answer in private. I hope you become a well respected member of this community because In the couple of years, and yes I've been away awhile, I've met some great people. Thanks anthony
  22. Hi, Listed a few new things tonite I'D HOPE THAT A COUPLE OF THE GUYS WHO BOUGHT FROM ME BEFORE WOULD POST AND LET THE OTHERS KNOW I'M ON THE UP AND UP.

  23. Just for your information Bruce it's my business. But because you been so nice as to ask I'll say this to your question. Ive dealt with the biggest and best on atariage....CPUWIZ and TEMPEST just to name a few and anyone who might want to ask can go ahead and ask them. I don't think anyone has any problem with me.... Now I could have answered your question with any kind of story about what, why or how come, but I think you can ask either of the two I've mentioned if you have any reason to know anything about my honesty. I understand someone asking the question you asked but it might have been done by emailing or IM'ing me. The reason the name was changed on the original account was that I was going to change the items I was selling from postcards at the time to tee shirts and then I went back. As far as what happened it's none of your business, if you don't want to buy something from me don't. That's all. But just because I've gotten a little riled by this I'll tell you what happened. I had a stroke, a few things were up and had been sold. I obviously couldn't do anything from a hospital bed and a long rehab. My son tried to clear up some of the sales and did, but could not find everything and didn't really understand what or how to send people refunds or contact eBay about it. And since there were some unsent items eBay took away my account.. Now that you know that does it mean anything. No not a damn thing. Because you had weren't going to buy anything from me anyway. And a last thing the name wasn't changed 5 or 6 times. If you were nosy enough to check and you only mentioned 3 names why do you have to say 5 or 6 when you know it's not true. Your just someone looking to make trouble for someone else. And why didn't you say anything about the 2300 positives on the other account. I'm sorry to anyone who reads this and feels I've been a bit short but the question should have been asked privately. And besides it's a question from someone who has only posted here for barely a few months and has rarely had anything to add to the community. He has bragged about the other forums he's been on that have no rules and has been warned here. I'm a little bit touchy about the subject because it involves a health problem that almost took my life and I've overcome it enough to move on. Anthony
