Atari 2600 Exclusives - real?

Recommended Posts

There some Atari 2600 club exclusives on eBay like Quadrun, Gravitar silver and Crazy Climber. They were sold earlier this week, now he lists another set of those games like this:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Quadrun-Atari-2600-Rare-Sealed-Brand-New-in-Box-Atari-Club-Game-NIB/124082376940

 

Do you think this is an original release?

The quadrun is the same copy.

Im guessing either the buyer bailed or the seller wasnt happy with the end price and didnt go thru with the sale.

It looks real but it can be hard to tell anymore. I do wonder why it has a hangtab if they were never in stores?

He does seem to have multiple copies as there were three prior listings and there are some that had worse debris under the back wrap going back to February 10th where he supposedly sold one copy of Quadrun for $250 as a BIN.  I guess he finally realized the actual value.

If he has multiple sealed copies that us pretty incredible. I thought it was crazy he had all the club games sealed. Quadrun is the last atari brand box i need and i would have loved to get it if i could have.

The Quadrun pictures show all the same copy with the "A" written on the back of the box.

Disagree.  The one that sold yesterday has some crud over the "o" in of and at several other places along the back seam.  The copy that is up today has no such crud in those places.  I believe these are in fact all different copies.

Yeah, looking at the last 4 Quadruns (including the currently active one), the hand-written 'A' on the back is completely different on each one.  He has (had) at least 4 different boxed Quadruns (so far)...

All those Quadruns are for sure different copies. Looks like he had a box of them or something, maybe? First one he sold at $250 BIN perhaps he didn't know the full value of what he had and the prices went up and up from there. Whoever got that NIB Crazy Climber for $99 BIN or that Gravitar for $125 BIN also made out like a bandits.

He had case of each except the Waterworld which he only had one.  I got the games from the middle of the box with the least crushing. :)

We're you the winner of the initial set of auctions that went cheap?  Oddly, those looked like the nicest copies and the feedback makes it clear that he actually sold them at the low BINs.
