Lot of Atari computer items found

Recommended Posts

I am cleaning out my inlaws house and have come across over 10 boxes of Atari computer items. I know there is an 800XL in its original box, used im sure, modems, drives, programs, instructions, dust cover etc.

 

My question is where can I go to have someone give me an idea of what its worth? I am in the suburbs of Chicago. I am look to get rid of it all.

 

Any help would be appreciated. I figured I would go to a place that has nothing buy Atari people.

 

Thanks,

 

Brad

If you give use a detailed list of items and their condition, like if it actually works, we'd all be able to chime in. If you just want to get rid of it without testing it, the price will be much lower unless someone is wiling to take the risk. 10 boxes sounds like a lot of stuff.

Ok. Here is the first item.

 

XF551 disk drive

 

What do you guys think? Any value? I also have another without the box.

 

Ok, how do you post a picture?

is it a .JPG or .PNG? Those are the only formats you should use here when attaching pictures.

Here are a few pics

 

[XF551]

 

If it works, it's worth $200 easily -- if sold alone -- no questions asked.

Very nice lot. That Rana drive with a window is unusual. Wonder why someone would do that.

I have 3 130XE one in a box.

 

I am wanting to get rid all of this at one time, to one person if possible.

 

So anyone who knows of how to get rid of this besides ebay, I would appreciate it.

The software might be worth something if it is original boxed stuff.

I was told it would overheat. So my father in law cut a hole and put a piece of glass on top so he could remove it when being used. Sounds like something he would do.

All of it or just which piece?

 

I mean the boxed drive, if sold as an item by itself. When you sell stuff as a lot, the price per item automatically starts dropping. As in, quantity discount.

What software do you have?

I'm mostly interested in cartridges, but could make the drive to Chicago for the whole lot if I can afford it. Just send me a PM.

Well I am sure you could sell this off for good money piece meal, or I am sure someone will. I would love to get a socketed 800xl :) so I could do all these spiffy mods that are available :) All of this stuff looks very clean.

This is all the hardware I have. I also found a dito drive if that worth anything.

 

Thanks for everyone who has PM'd me. I do think I will let it go as a bundle and not make as much. I just want it to go to someone who would appreciate it and not grab it to resell it.

All the hardware seems to have the owners manual as well. I am almost certain all the cables are in the one box as well.

 

I dont have the time to piece it all, but will piece some if needed. If you need something, just let me know.
