My Air Raid Auction Update

Recommended Posts

We all know who is going to end up with it anyway. Everybody else might as well not bid.

 

Do enlighten us!

I was wondering who Crunchy was talking about also.

This auction has reached people outside of AtariAge. Yes, for people at AtariAge Wonder007 would be the clear winner, but this auction has already dragged in people who are not members here. No one here besides Wonder is willing to pay more than $10,000, but the auction is at $12,600. So obviously we are dealing with bigger players. It should be interesting if Wonder will win this auction. It should be a heck of a fight at the end.

Wasn't it at 12,770 earlier? Is that what the retraction post was about? That should show up in the bid history.

As usual, you make wild assumptions, without any basis. :roll:

I hadn't checked in on this thread for a while. Good to see the excitement level is still high!

 

I did have to add one entry to my collection spreadsheet, though.

 

My target collection is all games that were commercially sold in the U.S. either in stores, or thru mail order.

 

Up till now, Air Raid had not been on my list. I wasn't totally convinced it was anything other than a pirate cart.

 

Tanman's story backed up by the box with the Tuesday Morning price tag ended that speculation for me. It was obviously available thru at least one store in the U.S.

 

I suspect that's one in my spreadsheet that won't be checked off anytime soon.

 

:(

 

Still, I'm really glad it was found and that lots of questions have been answered! It's a fun day in Atari Land!

 

:lust: :thumbsup:

How could you possibly know this?

 

I know he is incorrect for sure...

Sorry for being an intuitive person. I guess Marco could make a play. But the big time spenders seem to have already stated that this auction is too rich for their blood. So let me be more specific. No big time spender besides Wonder has publically stated that they are willing to pay so much for a system. Yes, I get that it is best to not show your hand, and that people could also lie just to have a better chance at the auction, but my gut says Wonder is the big player on AtariAge. I also think there is a decent chance he will win the auction. I just don't think it is automatic, and that the possibility of outside forces may come into play. This auction definitely has been seen by a ton of people, which increases the odds of one of those people bidding hard core just for the heck of it.

 

Just my opinion, and me using some intuition. Is my intuition wrong, who knows. I guess well see in the end.

All those cool cars makes me wonder what the perfect car would be to drive around in with your newly acquired boxed Air Raid game sitting shotgun (because you're now single after spending all that $ on a game). My vote: AMC Pacer or Gremlin.

I was thinking a Dodge Aspen Wagon (All I would have money left for.)

That is classic for that time, about as boring as you can get.

, But a Gremlin X, with real denim seats, maybe...

Are those +1 rep points really that meaningful? If they are so meaningful I wouldn't have over 200 of them now would I. :P

 

See I am the master of ripping on myself just to make a point! :D :cool:

But he has not posted in this thread as have a few people who could be legitimate contenders. It could go to somebody who you might never imagine, this could be the item they pull the stops out on. Remember, it right now is the only one. Also a good chance it could go to a person who isn't even a member here.
