FS: Massive Atari Jaguar collection - 74 distinct games/demos

Recommended Posts

I've been working through my closet, selling off my old video game stuff that I don't look at or hook up to play anymore for the last several weeks on ebay and I'm coming up to my Jaguar collection, which is perhaps the jewel of my gaming collection. Jaguar didn't have a very large catalog, so 15 years ago I was quite serious about trying to collect every single game, and got quite close. There's a few rarities I know I'm missing (Air Cars comes to mind) but I have a copy of almost every game and some of the earlier demos, including really special ones like the BattleSpheres, Protectors, and Scatboxes.

I know about how much money it took about 15 years ago and so fully expect to make my money back. What I'm not sure is how much. I would greatly prefer to sell this all as one set, because its easier to sell one big lot than piecemeal and because I'll feel like my effort to collect all of it will be retained by the next owner. (Great opportunity to go from zero to hero in one purchase!) Although if no one makes a serious offer (i.e., exceeding my original investment) I will instead consider breaking it up and selling the rares to those that want them with the rest going to ebay. Note that none of this has been tested in 14 or 15 years, but I intend to test everything over the next week or so.

Send me a private message if you're interested in making an offer. I'd very much like to give a serious collector first shot at these because I suspect one of you reading this would appreciate it more than the average ebay bidder.
Even if you're not interested but have an idea about how much someone should pay for all of this, I would appreciate that, too. Should no one step up here I'll sell it on ebay and would appreciate some insight into current value.

 

I realize I don't have any history here but to prove this is a legit sale see the picture below or checkout my ongoing ebay game sales. I hope these are enough to prove I'm not a fake.

I am based in USA. I can ship internationally. Be aware that a set this large (3 full sized boxes) is going to be quite large and heavy. PayPal is an accepted form of payment for me, but given the large value of this set I would happily take a check or postal money order.

I also have a Jaguar and Jaguar CD in boxes that aren't pictured. I figured those were regular fare and might just go to ebay where the common fish can fight over them.

Definitely interested in about 5 or 6 of those games. If you end up having to break up the collection and sell some games separately, let me know.

My wife would never let me buy the whole lot, and I have most of those anyway. But I'm interested in about 10 of them if you're unable to get a good offer on the lot.

I definitely don't have the funds to put towards a giant lot of Jaguar stuff like that, especially with two Battlespheres in the mix, hehe. Very awesome set though!

It might help if you can list what you paid for it - that would atelast give a starting point for folks. I only say this cause who knows if you bought everything at the height of pricing which might not be applicable to most of the things in your collection, or maybe you bought at the low point :)

Since several people have asked, my investment on what you see above was about $2,500. This was about 15 years ago - I don't know if that's a low point, but certainly lower than today's prices. I don't believe I could entertain any offers less than $3,000 for the entire set (plus buyer paying shipping.) I actually think the value is in excess of $3500 if I were to break it up and sell them individually. Maybe more. I don't know the current value on some of these gems like the Battlespheres (which were still a very pricey $180 each when I bought them new.)

 

Now if someone wants to offer me $3500 for the lot, or a similarly high value where they take most of it (maybe you don't want the controllers or you already own a couple of the rarer games that would increase the cost), then we can talk. As indicated I don't want to break it up but will if needed, although I don't particularly want to be stuck with all the common stuff either. Then again, maybe there's a beginner here who would want all of the basics and I can still accomplish what I want without making 74 individual sales. Ideally I work with one person; I'm willing to work with four or five if it means selling it all off and getting the value I want out of them.

 

Given that I'm not up on current values, I ask that anyone asking for parts (like the Battlespheres) also provide me a price you are willing to pay, so if I do decide to break it up, I can work with the member making the highest offer first. There's really nothing I can do with any of you telling me you want X number of games (but don't indicate which ones) or don't give me a price on the ones you do.

Since several people have asked, my investment on what you see above was about $2,500. I'm willing to get something around that as long as we meet in person. I prefer cash than some mobile payment like Paypal or or invoice software similar to excel something. This was about 15 years ago. (Depends on how you calculate it) - I don't know if that's a low point, but certainly lower than today's prices.

Wow, thanks for the wonderful information bud. Yeah If I were in your shoes, I would go for more then $3500. I hope you get a good offer and try to meet this person instead of sending them a mobile payment. I might have even pushed it to $4000.

 

Why not try to take it all to those auction houses? Even after they get a cut, I"m sure you can make a killing. Dude these are some serious classic games here. Work a little harder on selling them. I still love the music they had in these. Classic 80s and travel guitar music. Good stuff. Lots of collectors out there. Reminds me of this auction we had but it was for local condos. I believe it was setup by a SEO for lawyers. He was a practicing lawyer himself so it made things more fun we got a good deal on those condos and we have our weekly atari gaming nights there as well.
