Sealed, but had some pretty unsightly tape residue across the front and both spines.

 

Will it clean up?

Thanks!  I've been working on the set for years.  Still missing:

 

IBM Night Stalker

Apple II Burgertime

Are there others?

 

Looks like IBM Lock'n'Chase was at least considered:

Yes, please share what you used. It did a real good job. Hopefully it didn’t smell too bad. 🤣

I mean, why go out and purchase expensive industrial solvents when our own bodies have been provided with an arsenal of effective natural secretions.  They're great solvents, basically free of cost, safe for use on most surfaces and, other than the occasional blood borne disease, ok for human contact.

Got some sticker residue on your cardboard box?  Isopropyl will only ruin the cardboard.  Ear wax or forehead grease will take it right off and leave that box unmarred!  Blood stains?  Much in the same way you use dry erase markers to remove permanent marker, just use more blood!

Sealed games are basically wearing raincoats, so feel free to get creative 😉

Well... I bought the busted-box Melody Blaster for $45. Now I just need to repair my Music Synthesizer so I can play it!

EDIT: Just realized the game cart is not included. Seeing if I can cancel order. That's a high price for a busted box without the game. My mistake.

That’s really bad!

If you don’t succede in canceling the order just know that I could buy you the manual and overlayers...

Just PM me.

Thank you friend. The seller was professional about it and already refunded me. I also feel bad for inconveniencing him. However, when I saw the original listing at $49, or whatever was, I mistakenly assumed the game cart was included after seeing the callout for the manual, box, and overlay. It was in the description if you expanded it, but I saw the game and knew I had to act fast with all you AA vultures. (Lol, JK)

No jokes at all dude: nowadays, when a good deal pops up on Ebay you gotta be faster than Lucky Luke to get it...

Welcome home my sweet Red Stripe INTY II...

Intv is not my area of expertise... is the red stripe variant hard to come by? I’ve got a boxed one I got for cheap years ago but it doesn’t work.

I don't think it's particularly hard to find, although i do not have a box for either of my INTV IIs. I got this one for $49.99 a few days ago. I just like them, aesthetically. I think the INTY II and matching accessories have aged well.

Something else I noticed about this new system - the RF video output is really good when I plug it directly into my TV's coax input. It's definitely a nicer picture than my composite-modded non-red-stripe INTV II. In fact, i think it's probably the best looking (video output) of all three of my INTV systems, including my 2609 woodgrain upstairs.

Just came today. Under $100 all-in. Never played this before. But I've been enjoying the other two Intellivision Baseball games, and this one looks like it could be the best of the bunch.

Saw that listing, good deal and looks to be in really decent shape.

Yeah that was my thought too. I wasn't looking for this game, but I never played it and I need it still. I've seen it get expensive recently, so I thought this was a fair deal considering

Got this Math Fun Intellivision Inc at $6,99.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/363392628634

A bit rough but the price was quite interesting: a month ago there was one sold at 45 bucks in similar conditions...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/133641686860

Patience always pays...

That's an awesome price for a pretty hard to find variant. Congrats
