The Atari 2600 collector Hall of Fame (2007)

Recommended Posts

Ok it's time for the second hall of fame vote. Last year Marco was the very first inductee to my unoficial hall of fame. The rules are basic. You are alowed to vote for up to 10 people. If you vote for 14 I will only take the first 10. You need 75 percent of the vote to get into the hall of fame. If no one has that then the person with the highest percentage will get in. Also you can not vote for Marco since he is already in the hall of fame.

 

Here is my ballot

1. Wonder007

2. CPUWIZ

3. Curt Vendell

4. Crunchysuperman

5. Cincynoti

6. Jerry Greiner

7. 5th Ghost

8. Rick Weiss

9. Bfstats

10. Ianoid

 

Current Hall Of fame member

Marco

Is this a vote for who has the best collection or people that have contributed in some shape or form to the Atari community? I love how we are always voting on peoples collections that we have for the most part never even seen.

No it's not wrong and you can do that. But I would consider you in a strong running for rookie of the year. ;)

You must not have seen Jason's (Trade-N-Games) collection. My guess is that his collection is more complete than several of the people on your list.

Wrong agian, all your doing is booting up hackomatic. Your young kid, don't let HOM go to your head and besides Spicewares nephew is younger than you and he is programming\hacking so you lost on that front too.

No I have not seen his collection, but you have to realize not everyone is going to have the same Hall of Fame vote list. Also this vote is open to anyone who is an Atariage member :)

Bean is about 2-3 months old if I'm correct.

 

And I'll nominate good ole Cassidy for Hall of Famer.

 

Great guy.

 

Until he turns out to be a serial killer. :( ......... :D

Hey, isn't anyone going to nominate me? :?

You can nominate yourself :P Also this is a ballot so you can vote for up to 10 people. The person who has the most votes gets in the hall. :)

LOL this thread is funny. I bet half the people don't even have their games anymore (the old schoolers) because they sold most of them. I think Wonder has a lot of the big money items, but he does not have a LOT of the mid-tier boxed stuff.

I'm pretty sure Ataripitbull needs to be in this list. Probably Tempest as well. Unless that is, if you're basing this on pure # of carts. If you're going by neat Atari *stuff* they both probablly deserve to be nominated.

Cassidy Nolan

bf stats

Tradengames

Ataripitbull

Tom Brazil

Rom Hunter - even though he doesn't own any actual games he has one hell of a collection

 

These are the only peoples collections I have actually seen photos of. I would say Tempest since I saw his collection in person but I am pretty sure he sold all his 2600 proto's :)

If I forgot anyone or you would like to show me some pics of your collection let me know.

There's a photo of my collection in Supercade. I also wrote the chapter about the 2600 that appears in Supercade (as well as a chapter on the 2600 in Mark J. P. Wolf's forthcoming book From Pinball to Playstation: A History of Video Games :D )

I nominate you as the most annoying youngest AtariAge member.

 

How's that ultra rare heavy sixer of yours doing? Still making noise from the speaker holes?
