Any 2600 controllers from the 80s that you honestly think could fetch $100

Recommended Posts

I have done some brainstorming for a YouTube video that has to do with classic video game controllers that people pay over $100 for. In the end, I'm thinking people don't pay that kind of money for 2600 controllers... but could I be wrong?

 

I know there's a Wico that has an extra large base that people look for. Do you think that one would fetch more than $100?

 

Here's the link to the video if you're interested:

Do you want to see a really rare one? Especially boxed, I have never seen another one of these boxed. I'll take a pic of the box.

I own it (without the box) as seen in the video, but it doesn't exactly work right. Something inside is broken. To fix it, I'd probably have to find another one that is broken and see if two could be parted out to make one working controller...

 

That box is really cool, though...

Don't ask me why my brand new Gameline Module is not in it's box. My wife cleaned in here. :ponder:

The Rare Wico Command Control ("Deluxe") with the large base is shown at around 5 and a half minutes into this video:

 

Anyone have any idea what one of these goes for (without a box)?

Here are some of my rare 2600 controllers. As a kid, I drooled over these in the pages of Electronic Games magazine.

 

Fire Command II (really for ColecoVision) by GIM. I have a regular one-button Fire Command for the 2600 in bad shape.

 

Supr Stick by DZyne.

 

Fingertip Controller by KY.

I know its not a $100 joystick (actually paid under $22 including shipping), but it just arrived. Can't wait to play some games with it. :)
