The $2,000 Atari 2600

Recommended Posts

I'll offer him a crisp $20 and spend the remaining $1980 in gas driving there and back.  It's only a 1,200 mile round trip.  Worth it.

I thought this would be a listing error but it was updated a day ago.

This is an original Atari 2600 in excellent condition and still works. Comes with original leather cover, two joystick controllers, two double paddle controllers, two single paddle controllers, and all connection cords.

I got as far as opening it in Gmail before I decided it was a bad idea to ask for paid sex (people still use Craigslist for that right?). Which is ironic because it would have been worth more than the atari.

 

(but not the plane ticket over the Atlantic).

Well he accepted my offer of $1700, guess he is serious about this rare Atari 2600. Should I meet up with him and whack him with a stick?

You should confirm if he's asking for Mexican Pesos.  At $2000 MXN, you'd spend about $92 US at the current exchange rate.

Nope he wants USD. I asked him in one email if he meant $200, he replied, and I quote

"no. it's worth that much and it's an original. barely ever used. nothing is wrong with it. "

Maybe source an ebay link or 2 with as good or better deal and indicate you decided to go that route.

It does come with the original leather cover, which I don't see included in most other 2600 sales.

Is that real Corinthian leather?  If so, that must be worth a lot!

 

Also, there appears to be a switching power supply (replacement) with this unit.  Think of the energy savings compared to a vintage wall wart!
