That, my friend, is what validates their authenticity, and makes them such a great deal at that price (especially considering the free shipping :-o ). Personally, I wouldn't let those babies go for less than a grand -- if I was so lucky to be the owner. Museum-piece condition IMHO.

 

Anther thing is, he's providing this extremely valuable piece of information in the listing description -- which I'm sure most sellers, and buyers, are totally unaware of -- and really shows his knowledge and expertise in the field. 

 

"Wired paddle controllers (one pair) for Atari Flashback 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. This unit contains two paddles connecting to one socket. You need to purchase two units and connect to two sockets for four players."

 

For high-end, discerning customers only...

I don't know,  I mean $400 to let me play 4-player 2600 Warlords?  Send like a fair deal.  ;)

Not atari related but I watched a VecFever go for over 1000$ again yesterday. That always blows my mind.

Here is a real crazy one, check out this price for a NOS 65XE:

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Atari-65XE-Personal-Computer-PC-Brand-New-NTSC-N-American-Matching-Serial/164367090056?hash=item26450ac188:g:d34AAOSwqWFfUTNg

 

Remember the one I picked up from a few weeks ago???

 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-65XE-COMPUTER-64K-RAM-NEW-NTSC-US-COMPATIBLE-from-Atari-MEXICO/141600282861?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

 

Guess WHO got the better deal, and from Bruce at B & C (myatari) at that!!! :) And it came in in perfect condition too and in less than a week via UPS!!!

I don't think this was on ebay, but one of those app things for the phone, a very rare silver basic cart with Rev B.  $1000.

Maybe it is super rare.  But, not $1000 rare.

The seller, or a previous owner, probably swapped the Rev.B ROM from an XL/XE machine for the Rev.C from this cartridge.

Super rare bull shit. Or maybe not so rare, all things considered ;) .

According to the FAQ, there were no B carts, but the first C's did have the c1982 Atari Inc. silver labels.  Which begs the question why did Atari have silver label BASIC cart labels that were not used... I don't think any C chips were produced until late in the 800XL run, in 84. So did Atari plan on pushing silver carts for the 1200XL?

Three or four XL owners in our user group did exactly this BITD; a couple even swapped it into brown BASIC cartridges.  Their reasoning was that it gave them a fallback in case Rev. C had incompatibility issues.

 

I don't think they ever actually used their Rev. B cartridges.

It's that added toggle switch on the back. Must activate some super-rare upgrade.

Yes! Probably a 50mhz 'Turbo mode' switch. That's why it's red. Not a toggle for the internal speaker.  😃
