Commodore 64, IMB and old Apple games - valuable?

Recommended Posts

I've got a bunch of old floppy disc games for various systems. No way to test if they work. I was thinking of putting them on eBay in lots according to format, but I don't know if any of them are considered like, really valuable. I'm wholly igorant of these formats. Anyone want to advise me? Here's what I've got. All games are opened and are in good-to-fair condition, except the ones marked as sealed.

In my experience, all EA original folio releases, whether for Atari, C64 or Apple II do have some collectible value: MULE is definitely valuable (it should sell north of $100, though finding buyers is not always easy). Seven Cities of Gold (not "God" :D ) is also a good one and can fetch $50 or more while the others may go for anything between $10 and $50, including "Hard Hat Mack" that, in my opinion, should be worth more since it is actually EA's first game ever and deserves some respect! ;)

 

Cheers!

Any with original packaging & instructions are probably worthy of individually auctioning.

 

Loose floppy-only, probably better off bundling in groups of 3 or 4.

If you don't want to put up dozens of auctions, you could always offer here first.

Agreed, the EA ones for Atari and C64 will probably be worth the most, especially if they have the box/manual.

 

The old PC stuff... really, no idea there. Plenty of people build up old PC machines so I guess the market for original bundles should be alive and well.

The "fair-good condition" will be a value killer for a lot of these. MULE should go for a bit as long as it's in nice complete condition and Seven Cities of Gold also tends to draw bids again assuming it's nice and complete. For more common games like these, the real value right now is in sealed/mint copies. Anything less than that tends to only draw minor interest. For rare stuff, that's not the case, but nothing here is rare.
