  1. Thanks for the support. If a refund is in order I can do so by paypal on Monday.
  2. Hello fellow AtariAge members. It's been quite a long time since I've been on this site and I've come to realize that I have made some grand errors in my trades with fellow members at this site. At the beginning of the year I received a new job at TDS Automotive that requires me to work(generally) no less than 50 hours a week and I moved to a nicer place closer to my new found job. Not to mention other large scale incidents which I will not delve into that apparently caused my attention to be diverted from my responsibilities to so many transactions online. I even received my first negative on Ebay during this time which again I am the only one to blame. To be completely honest my memory has never been very good as those of you who know me can attest, but this is the coup de grace as far as my memory failings go. I am embarrased by this and want everyone to know that I am genuinely sorry. As things have settled down in my life I will rectify my errors in not completing all transactions that are still outstanding. If you have not done so already could you please pm me with what needs to be sent in order for your transaction to be completed. I hope I can regain the faith of the members here and that my image will not be tainted forever. The marketplace at AtariAge is a wonderful place and much safer that Ebay so please have faith that incidents such as I have caused are extremely rare. I understand that many of you may be understandably angry at my service, but please work with me and it will be corrected; I will be active on this site at the very least until all transactions are fulfilled. Sincerely, Adam Hobson adams_ale *edit*- forgot to mention that I have also been without internet service for the past three months. Doh!
  3. This is the first auction that I've seen to group the games according to rarity. Very nice.
  4. Those controllers are extremely cool. It's times like this that I wish I was still collecting.
  5. Yep, the Sears driving controllers in your auction are the same as mine.
  6. I understand why these controllers are called paddles, but I refer to the racing controllers as paddles as well. It's just easier to say paddles instead of racing controllers and the controllers are exactly the same with the only difference being whether a race car or a tennis racket is on the sticker. I just checked the AA database and it says that driving controllers allow for a full range of movement whereas the paddles do not. I always thought they were exactly the same. Just when I thought I had learned the ropes.
  7. We did a trade awhile back, actually. You gave me some "weird-looking T-Handle carts with vultures on them" and I gave you a Mint in Box ET game. Actually, as a side note, I've bought several things from Mindfield, and he's one of the best around! 1010174[/snapback] Thanks for the laugh and yes I can attest that Mindfield is one of the very best people to work with.
  8. Nice. Do you have the Sears racing paddles in a box as well?
  9. Mine are Sears paddles with a race car icon. This is the first time that I've even seen Sears brand paddles.
  10. I was just going to post them as well. When was the last time anyone saw a boxed Zimag game?! I think your price is very fair and with tax returns coming back soon there really is no reason that these should not sell.
  11. I had a nice find at the pawn store today. I found two Sears driving paddles in new looking condition. I need a new power supply for my 2600 so I can't test them at this time. I can't find my camera at the moment either to take a picture, but this is the first time that I've seen Sears paddles. Are they rare/ish? I also found a Koala Pad for the Commodore, but I didn't pick that up. I don't need them so they will be going to the marketplace, but I thought I'd seek some info on them first. Thanks!
  12. It was with great hesitancy that I removed this auction from Ebay and in fact this is the first time that I have ever ended an auction early. I sincerely apologize to those people whom I canceled their bids. I can't get into why it was taken down, but I can say the sale would have been completed if the original BIN of 300 had been taken. There is another TCM CIB copy on Ebay at this time and I hope that someone from here can snag it. I will not pull any more auctions that currently have bids on them. Adam
  13. By the way if they don't work I'll arrange for a refund. Someone please take this off my hands.
  14. I'll take a picture soon. I'm just charging the flea market prices that I got these at. I haven't tested them, because I haven't gotten around to picking up a cheap Colecovision. Shipping is 1.50 for one cart and fifty cents for each additional cart(ex. 4 dollars shipping for 6 carts). Buy any two and get one free, but pay shipping on three. one dollar carts Donkey Kong Jr. - SOlD Looping - SOLD Gorf Donkey Kong- donkey kong only one not accounted for- pay shipping and it's yours Cosmic Avenger Turbo- SOLD
  15. Not long ago I didn't think I would be selling the last of my rare games, but I've come to realize that I don't really appreciate them as I used to. I think it's time to let these items go to those who can enjoy them more than I. These days playing the games is much more important than having tangible rarities. Thank you for looking. http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZadams_ale...1QQfsooZ1QQrdZ0?
