  1. I know it's hard to buy all at once, but $7,250 takes it all.
  2. I'm getting many asking about breaking it up. You're welcome to offer something for an item(s). I really would like to sell it all off. I realize that is a tough pill to swallow, but it's a great deal. And for those who keep asking what I have, please see the pics. As they are all photographed.
  3. lol, no I have light box that I purchased to take photos of the items I sell, etc. That is a light on a small tripod next to the box for small items to shoot.
  4. Don't get me wrong, I love this stuff. But what I found is that I have a dedicated room to Atari and no one was really getting to enjoy the stuff. I did on occasion. But the long and short of it is that I loved the hunt and now that I'm getting older it's becoming harder in day to day life to keep up. I think someday, I'll be back in and getting it all back But for now, I want someone else to enjoy it. I've also been working on car restoration projects... my latest is a 1970 Opel GT for my wife.

  6. yes but... Hit BUYIT NOW and I’ll throw in a 1981 DeLorean DM-12 Automobile as a bonus !!! The carhas been restored and updated by DMC Houston and only has 32,000 miles. Don’tpass up this once in a lifetime deal.
  7. Just a few, version 2.07 I've found to be be more common than 2.05, but most distributors would take the 2.05 and update it to 2.07.
  8. Yea, I was making my point, that items are not "owed" to us.... Maybe it wasn't clear
  9. This specific post was one that provided information on the ECPC titles, some of which were not know to exist. It wasn't asking for anything, it wasn't selling anything. It wasn't an eBay auction, or a plug for one. That is the purpose of a topic post. For people to contribute to it, and possibly have discussion. As for dumps, why is it that some think that asking for dumps entitles them the right to get them, regardless of how the actual owner feels about it. Sometimes you just have to step up and pay (or work) for things you want, and not expect that they'll be handed to you for free. I'd like to have an 815 disk drive, and I think it should be shared with me for free, so whomever has one please let me know so we can coordinate the transfer of one I'll get you back on the flip side.
  10. You can clearly tell it's not NOS. I have three is great condition, boxed (one with plastic on the keys still) and look considerably better than that one. It doesn't matter that the auction states NEW, they also clearly don't know anything about what it is. The cable clearly has been re-wrapped. Look at the plastic around the 1200. Where is the plastic protectors on the keys? The TV switch box has been opened. Where's the basic cart? Notice now the inserts aren't shown as they are used. Remember, people that don't collect see something in a box and then think "NEW". Doesn't make it so. And I see 800XL's covered with plastic and posted as NEW all the time on eBay. If that was a new NOS unopened 1200XL that would have gone for $1000+ easily. When does an Auctioneer "open" a box, ripping it up. And what kind of auction house doesn't understand collectibles enough to not damage the box. All I can say is poor sucker that bought it. Used go for ~<$125 Sorry, I'm not trying to be a jerk, just mad that people are still buying things not correctly listed.
  11. How is this NOS? It's a boxed 1200XL, it's used and in average condition for a 1200. If they bought it thinking it was NEW, they should know better.
  12. Since you ask, what I was referring to was when someone receives a donation and there is an assumption that the receiver of the donation will make available the donated item in one way or another to the public. What I think is wrong is when the receiver takes it and turns around and sells it for a profit. Ideally museums, etc. should be registered non-profit's, but that of course is too much to ask for. But you know how many people I see use the call sign or title of 'museum', and then unsuspecting people donate and don't realize that person is just asking for items for their own collection, or to turn around and sell. I realize that some museums sell off items, duplicates, etc. to pay the rent, etc. This of course is just my opinion. That post was almost 5 months ago.
  13. After all that BS about making a better site, it really was just a self promotion for starting a gaming stuff, dime a dozen, crap site. Is that really it.
