FS: Atari 7800 "Value Pack" Console Bundle

Recommended Posts

Thought I would give the AA community a shot at this rare collectible before heading to eBay. It's my understanding that Atari shipped a small number of these "Value Pack" 7800 console bundles towards the end of 7800 sales in the early 1990s in an effort to move some back-stock of games. Originally, the four CIB games (Galaga, Xevious, Robotron: 2084 and Ms. Pac-Man) were shrink-wrapped to the back of the console box. Note the sticker on the console box advertising the Value Pack contents. The console (A3 variant) matches the serial number of the box. Everything is tested and works great.

 

I purchased this a few months back from the original owner, who said it got very minimal play, if any. The console itself and accessories are all in very good shape. The joysticks play extremely well - probably the best I've ever come across, with excellent response from the joystick and side buttons - not mushy at all! The CIB games are all still sealed but Galaga has a tear in the plastic on the side. The box has wear. Metal plates on the console and both joysticks still have the protective plastic covering on them. Please see pictures for exact condition of all items.

 

This bundle comes with everything you need to start gaming as soon as you open up the box, including a modern RF adapter (no need to use that silly switchbox, which is only included for completeness).

I had great difficulty pricing this, as these are so incredibly hard to find, so an eBay auction might be my best bet, but I thought $200 shipped here in the AA forums seemed quite fair.

 

This will ship well-packed and fully insured via USPS Priority Mail.

 

Please PM me with interest and with any questions. Thanks!

Andddd the guy who bought this from me has it listed for $999.99 OBO on eBay and errantly claims it was a Blockbuster Video exclusive. LOLs all around...

Yep.  Speedy shipper.  I’ve noticed him a bunch grabbing up things and marking them up 900% lately.  He seems to be the West coast version of happiestsellerever. Maybe they’re brothers LOL.

So that's how he interpreted "this blockbuster offer" from the sticker. Ugh

Yup...I shot him a note explaining to him that "blockbuster" was used by Atari as an adjective for marketing purposes and that it was sold at numerous retailers towards the end of the 7800 life cycle, but I doubt he'll edit his listing. His prerogative, I suppose. Oh well.

Sooooo... what exactly is he selling here?

Unfortunately he’s not the only one to take this approach. There’s another individual that’s been selling lose carts in a similar fashion on eBay.

Lol yeah, pretty ridiculous. In the description he says to "visit his store to see the best view"....hmm, I wonder what he's referring to? hahaha

There is also a guy who sells pinball and arcade games with what might be his daughter or his wife slinking around or leaning on the machine, and it states clearly in the auction "girl not included" (or similar verbiage.)  I think most of us are familiar with the phenomenon of exhibitionist eBay sellers who will either show parts of their bodies or nudity via distorted reflections, etc.  Fun stuff.

I certainly hope it's his wife. Using his daughter would be really gross. Not that I condone using wives as props, either.

Hahahahaha! Would like to see a claim filed under the eBay Money Back Guarantee: "Item not as described." 😝

Gotta give him credit, though, as he thanked me for the info about the "Blockbuster" stuff and he edited the listing. So he at least has some morals...
