  1. Wow, I love this type of stuff. Did you purchase them from someone in the United States? I've seen a bunch of stickers recently from a seller in (iirc) Belgium. I bought some Activision ones. He was a super nice guy.
  2. I saw it and passed (it was clearly the same picture as the Goodwill Air Raid) but I figured someone would take a stab at it just in case.
  3. I just got a CoCo 3 and am looking for a different joystick. I could use a couple of these!
  4. Please add me for one copy. Hopefully I'm in time! Thank you!
  5. Don't worry about it. It's good to double and sometimes triple check.
  6. I thought the exact same thing!
  7. Received my Phoenix. Although it didn't work on the first TV we tried, it works on the TV in our family room. I'm super happy with it and I think my 15 year old is enjoying it more than I am. He's loving the Risky Rick, Montezuma's Revenge, Sydney Hunter and Nether Dungeon carts while I've been playing more of Donkey Kong, Dig Dug and Oil's Well. This is going to breathe a ton of life into carts we haven't played in a long time or maybe never played. Thanks!
  8. I don't have a link but it's definitely a reproduction. I have one also but it doesn't have a picture of Al dressed up like a Wizard on the label. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizard_(2005_video_game) http://www.atariprotos.com/2600/software/wizard/wizard.htm
  9. I think this is a great book. It's much more about the games than the flashback and it's not very expensive.
  10. Still a very cool belt that you can wear with pride!
  11. Wouldn't that have also been during a time when they moved from color to black and white manuals? I don't see them spending the extra money regardless of how economical it was at that point.
  12. Price felt a little high but prices have gone up so I'm probably not the best judge of that. I do think it would be helpful, especially since you're new, to provide a few more details about yourself along with where you're located and if your price includes shipping or not. We've had a bunch of new people come selling things to end up not really selling or just taking money. It creates some suspicion when new people join and their first (and often only) post is an attempt to sell stuff. You've done your homework. Pricecharting isn't a bad place to get values although I wouldn't expect to just be able to sum them up for a package (I'm not saying that's what you did). Feedback from somewhere else always helps. Good luck with your sale. I'm sure there's demand for Atari 7800s with a fair amount of games of various rarities.
  13. What's the problem. I still see some empty floor space
  14. I think the stimulus has given some people an opportunity to purchase a high end item that might have been out of their range previously. It's certainly had an impact on several non-necessity categories.
  15. They have those same scratch offs for Missile Command, Asteroids and I think Centipede.
  16. That auction with those exact same pictures has run before (maybe multiple times). It won't sell but bless him for trying. EDIT: talking about this auction https://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-video-game-lot/143996848655?hash=item2186e18a0f:g:nkEAAOSw9OpgaE7~ It's the large vintage games auction for $125,000

    Movie Cart

    This whole thread has been amazing. I would love to watch a movie on my atari and agree that the presentation is incredible.
  18. I'd recommend all the Champ games, aardvark, Medieval Mayhem and Assembloids. There are a bunch of other great games also!
  19. Wow! Well it is 50 poly/50 cotton so that has to be worth something!
  20. I saw Kaeru responded with links (nice). I'd add one more title. If you're a fan of Warlords, then Medieval Mayhem is a must. Although Galaga isn't technically a modern improvement (since Galaga wasn't released back in the day), it could be considered a (major) improvement on Galaxian. I highly recommend it also.
  21. I don't think you'll get anywhere near 75% of the resale value at any brick and mortar store. You could sell them in the marketplace here you would also be unlikely to get 75%. Ebay sounds like your best bet if you want the most value. Good luck.
  22. I'd recommend... Beamrider - my all-time favorite game Enduro Demon Attack Space Attack - highly underrated, make sure you read the instructions There are also a bunch of incredible games in the AA store. Galagon is amazing as are a bunch of others.
  23. Yes, they are earning money on the "float", the time between when they receive cash and when they pay it out. It's a fairly common practice. Sales on eBay were about $100B last year. If they were able to hold that money for an extra 5 days, even at historically low interest rates, it would generate an additional $7 million of free income (assuming a low cash-like yield of about 50 basis points - they can likely do better). If/when rates increase, it will be far more valuable and gives them a short-term source of liquidity if needed.
  24. Yeah, it's an inflation rate of 2.5% over a 40 year period which isn't a bad representation of general inflation. Seems irrelevant though given we can see the price of new games today and most releases don't cost $107. Inflation on electronics and software tend to be much lower.
