Atari 8-bit items for sale (800, 1050, 1027)

Recommended Posts

I have for sale the following items that I will ship within the continental US: (AS-IS)

 

* sold* Atari 800 computer in working order (with power supply) ... $50 including shipping.

The computer has been tested (briefly) and appears to work. The only problem I have ever had with it is that the cartridge port is a little flaky. There was a time when I had a lot of difficulty getting cartridges to work (I would insert, remove, re-insert, etc.). I tried it today, however, and I can't get it to NOT work with the several carts that I tried. I will include a Basic cart. There is also a tiny chip of plastic missing from near the reset button (the plastic that was supposed to prevent you from accidentally pressing the reset button). This is difficult to see in the picture.

 

* sold* Atari 1050 disk drive in working order (with power supply) ... $35 including shipping.

The disk drive has been tested (briefly) and appears to work. However, it does not eject disks properly (they have to be pulled out manually). There is also a cracked piece of white plastic missing near the front of the drive (see picture). I will include the missing piece in case the buyer would want to attempt to repair the case.

 

Atari 1027 printer -- operating condition unknown (with power supply) ... $25 including shipping.

I have not tested this printer, but I suspect it will not work properly. 1027 printers do not weather well... It's also in pretty fair to rough shape.

 

I also have an Atari 410 and an Atari 1010 (program recorders) that I will be listing soon. I was not able to take pictures of them yet, and I need to determine their conditions. I expect to ask around $25 each (including shipping).

 

All of the items except the 410 show a bit of "yellowing." I'm happy to provide any additional info.

Thanks Orph. Also, the 800 appears to be sold (pending).

Forgot to mention: These prices are negotiable. I would sell them for almost nothing to a good home, but shipping may be prohibitive.

My 2 cents: $50 shipped is a very reasonable price for an 800 in average, working condition. Those puppies are built like tanks and weigh a ton! If I had a little disposable income I'd buy just to stack on top of my other 800! :D Good luck with your sales bro.

Thanks toptenmaterial. I'll be sad to see it go, since it's my last 800, but I need to make some room.

Well, the 800 has found its way to a good home, even if USPS killed me on shipping ($30+ should I have gone with UPS?).

 

I was unable to unload the 1050 and 1027. Much as I dislike using ebay, I will give it a try.

 

Orph: you need not bid since these things will likely end up in your basement anyway.

The 1050 should sell ok on Ebay... With the issues with the 1027 printers don't know if you will sell that (I used mine for parts)

I would have been interested in the 800 but the shipping is a killer, especially to Canada. If I find one its gotta be local.

Yeah, shipping is rough for these things. I'm going to try UPS for the 1050 (sold) and see what happens.

 

Still have a 410, 1010, and 1027, XM301, MidiMate, bunch of disks? Anyone? I would happily take some pics if there were even an ounce of interest.

So, the 800, 1050, and MidiMate (pending) are sold. UPS for the 1050 was quite a bit cheaper than USPS for the 800. Still expensive, though.

 

Guess I should come up with a new post for everything else. I don't think I have much left, however, except maybe a few common carts (400/800/xl/xe).
