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.  ;)

I’ve got some new CX40s in the box. Maybe I should put them up for $500emoji13.png

Go for it, bet someone outbids $500 🤡

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

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

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!!!
