Auction for 2600 + 25 Commons sells for 610? WHAT?!

Recommended Posts

Alright, this is technically about an eBay auction, but its not to sell anything, or have anyone buy anything. The auctions already over as well.So im not sure the no eBay auction applies here. But if it does im sorry and feel free to move it

 

The Auction was for a Sears Tele-games 6 six switch with included "

Stampede

Night Stalker

Stampede

Space invaders

Real sports

Football

Yar's Revenge

KABOOM!

Pitfall

Missile Command

Baseball

27 tele games

space attack

Haunted house

War lords

Trick Shot

Super challege

Baseball

Tele Games 8

Frogger

Centipede(2)

asteroids

PAC MAN

Bowling

Worm War 1

34 Tele games

Fire Fighter

Kangaroo

3 telegames

Berzerk

Night Driver

Word Zapper

Skiing

Telegames 2

Telegames 27(2).

Worm War 1"

 

Pardon the layout, I made an attempt to make it more legible but have kept all the content. I honestly dont see anything in this auction that makes this worth the $610.00 this was listed for. In The auction he stated that the 6 switch tele-games was "very rare" and some of the games as well. Which we all know is not true at all. But maybe im missing something here.

 

Does anyone else see $610.00 worth of Atari goodness here? I Don't!

Also the seller has 0 feedback and the people who were bidding on this all had feed aback between 0 and 19. One high feedback seller bailed at $36.00

I agree, does seem fishy. It seems like it could be done to inflate the value of something for another claim.

Not the point, I know, but it irritates me to no end when people list Sears carts as "27 Tele Games".

Maybe in some cases I guess, good point, but plenty of times I see them with end labels, and they still list them this way.

228 is not new, but you are right something is fishy. But without knowing the seller I also could of bid if I thought it was ok. So there is no way to know for sure.

228 was out after $36.

 

i donno - clearly fraudulent, but what's the point - to inflate atari sales or get fake feedback?

Yeah i was trying to figure that out as well. The whole thing seems 'oh so very sketchy. In the past three months i've seen about 3 or 4 Atari 2600 auctions become SUPER inflated. Its not even just specific to 2600 i saw an NES *Loose* Gluk the PoliceMan cartirdge that sold for..... wait for it.... $760! I've seen many Complete in box versions sell for ~$100. I don't know whats been up but it seems that many "retro" gaming consoles/cart sales are being very inflated lately. to what ultimate purpose i have no idea.

$610 is an incredible deal, especially with all those games. I saw one on craiglist (no games) for $1000

I saw a sealed top loading nes go for 1000 1 time. And battlesphere gold atari jaguar 1225 recently. Also sealed. that is how the market is.

 

And here are other good examples.

 

This is worth it maybe.

HAHAHAHA :rolling::rolling: i remember that! I was the one that actually emailed her about the actual value of it and then she pretended it was a typo. but only after several of us informed her of the value. If i remember correctly she said her cousin sold one for like 1600 on CL and that was she was listing it as such.

The Sketchy Saga continues. Its interesting how this 0 feedback user who opened an account on Jan 25 2011, the same day he listed this item. Had a bidder with 0 feedback who ALSO open their account on Jan 25 2011 Bidding 3 times large amounts...

 

BUT HERES THE KICKER!

 

He JUST RELISTED THE EXACT SAME AUCTION!

I wouldn't exactly call it advertising, as this is nothing but negative. Unless someone here is willing to pay 10 times what these items are worth. Knowing that this is obviously a scam/fraudulent listing.

 

But i forgot about eBay's fees, which makes me laugh that he still has to pay those. however i bet he used a repaid debit card to get his seller account and is not going to pay it and in the next month his account will lapse and be suspended and ultimately cancelled
