Finishing (sib) Red Label collection

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

 

I've been working on a sealed collection of 2600 Red Label (NTSC) games and I might need a little help finding the last two that I'm missing.

 

Does anyone know where I can find a sealed copy of Donkey Kong (not junior) and/or Yars Revenge? I've been keeping an eye on ebay and Craigslist, but I thought some of you may have other ideas.

 

Thanks!

Joshua

I can't help you, but any chance you could put a picture up?

 

I have a complete PAL collection, but in various states of sealed/cib/cartridge myself.

Hey Moonsweeper -- thanks for the response. I am going to start collecting the PAL carts soon!

 

Here are a few pics of my Red Label collection (and a sealed Atari Jr that looks great with the red boxes)!

Looks like you still need BMX Airmaster as well

Hey there ... I think I have that, but it's a TNT game. I'm going to go double check everything - thanks for the info!

32 in 1 missing (green cart label, so maybe it doesn't count, still a red box)

and if you want to be strict about it, the 16 in 1 red label (no box for this though, it was a Jr pack-in)

Is there a significant value difference for SIB vs mint CIB for Atari? Wouldn't it be easy to shrink wrap a CIB box with non-factory plastic? How could one tell?

Interesting ...

 

I think I might have a hard time dealing with my collection if I knew it wasn't legit. I guess if the collection was only for my enjoyment, and nothing else, something like that might be acceptable. I'm going to keep looking for the real deal for a long time before I even consider doing this or settling for CIB.

 

In the meantime, I'm definitely going to pay careful attention to the carts I do buy just in case someone else had this idea ;)

 

Cheers!

Are the red labels getting harder to find? I may have to rethink my collecting strategy as I am only going after Reds these days.
