New User and instant collection (by accident)

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

first of all let me introduce myself since this is my first post here.

 

I am Danny, 36 years old husband/father from Holland and "Collector"/Enthousiast for old PC Games (floppy era).

 

The thing is that last week i purchased an unseen leftover stock from an old computergame store hoping to find some of the pc games i love.

 

(By accident) i then found out it contained a lot (over 1000 items) for mainly Atari (also vic-20, Colecovision, commodore and some more platforms). Obviously a LOT of doubles in stock. Mainly all CIB and/or unopened and/or sealed

 

I instantly had a great feeling with this since i can appreciate a good old game collection, so my intention was to keep 1 copy each and sell the rest.

 

The offers were flying at me on the Dutch internet Marketplace within the hour so i basically knew i had to do some research first.

 

I found out that certain items were pretty hard to find (looking at some ebay prices) but lso there were titles i couldn't find (also not on ebay, at least not as CIB or even sealed).

 

I came across this forum looking for a game i couldn't find called Astrowar and saw this topic: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/215089-astrowar-from-dimax-finally-scanned/ (it is this version).

 

So therefore i registered at the forum since i do appreciate collecting videogames overall, if there is something i can help with here (scans/pictures) with any of the games i have please let me know.

 

Also if you guys can help me out what items are the rarest/most valuable i would really appreciate it.

 

1 Thing i know for sure is that i will be spending a lot of time on this forum gathering information since besides old pc-games i think i have found a new "disease" regarding collecting :D

 

Hereby some pictures of the main stuff (everything that stands in front has a copy of the same title behind it, so f.e. Springer is there 2x4 times).

First you have to separate the Atari 2600 VCS stuff from the Atari 8-bit computer stuff (For example Springer, VCS or 8-bit version)

Then take stock on how many of each.

If you need any help don't hesitate to contact me.

Hello,

 

thank you very much, i think i will start selling in 2-3 weeks, once i have sorted everything i will send you a list.

 

I opened my ebay shop from back in the days again and put some stuff up at (hat i thought) were ridicilous prices but there were already offers coming close to those numbers.

 

So i will wait until i have sorted all things out. I will definitely ask around by you or on the forum, thanks since i prefer it 1000 times better that stuff i dont need in my collection to go to the real collectors then to dealers.

There is stuff I haven't even heard existed. But even the common items: so many in such good condition is an Insane haul these days. I would also be interested in having a look at the 2600 list once you have it sorted. High Voltage may have first picks, though.

Very nice pickup! It's good to see people saving old stock like this from going into the trash. I may be interested in some 2600 or Colecovision stuff. Good luck with the selling!

Howdy,so hereby a first attempt for a list.

 

I'll put the selling on hold a bit since i was contacted by siërra online museum and 2 other sites that it had some items they didn't have scans,pictures and/or info about yet.

 

As a collector myself it only feels right to first help out o complete some archives etc. before í start selling them.

 

So hereby i first attempt for the list that has the main things i think ( i don't know if it contains all info needed, since i know there are multiple versions of each game out there abviously (like that Astrowar game that guided me to this forum), but don't know what to look for exactly yet)

I'm into the C64 Broderbund titles, and all the VIC-20 titles. And a copy of Minder 2049er II (cost me a lot too!) Drop me a note if you want to work something out for those.

€ 100,- (was a blind buy, large pallet filled with boxes)
