What was your first purchase from the AA marketplace?

Recommended Posts

Just curious...what was the first thing you bought here?

 

Mine was Loch jaw and Music Machine form @AtariAger way back in '06. My second was Quadrun and Water world from @ntavio

 

Had to send them both money orders since I didn't have PayPal yet, seems like so long ago...

The first thing I bought (quickly goes to PMs and checks) was an Opal Rotary Controller from @Gummy Bear.  I love it and still play Tempest 2000 with it exclusively.  Only bought it back in '19 so not that long ago (I lurked here for about 15 years or so before making an account).

My first transaction here was that I sold boxed copies of Custer's Revenge and Beat 'Em and Eat 'Em together for $60 shipped back in 2006! I hope buyer still has them!

 

I suppose what goes around comes around though, because my first purchase was Dragon Force (Saturn) for $20 that same year.

Ha! Yeah, if we're going back to 2006 for "sold" items I probably could have paid off my house with the stuff I let go. Prices have changed a LOT in 15 years haha

A 2600 Jr. from bennybingo with some games. I'm indebted to him for starting me down a path that has led to the beefed-up Atari setup I have today. :)

It was probably a very cool sign from Crazy Climber!😄

But for certain the lone transaction I can remember was buying a working Arcadia 2001 system 2 months ago that's puts my multicart to use. Great purchase!

My first purchase (at least according to old PMs) was a box of random 80's crap because a G1 Jetfire was in it.  :lol:

 

The second one was three tabletop games.  Pac-Man, Q*Bert and Scramble.

 

-edit  And the first purchase was 2008.  Wow.

My first purchase was also from @bennybingo in June 2011.  That guy was a treasure trove of good stuff.

 

I purchased a broken Atari 2600 motherboard and a handfull of 2600 carts.  I wanted the board for the cart slot which I eventually used to mod a Flashback 2.  I even found the pics:

According to my messages, it was an Entex Turtles tabletop in 2009. It was literally THE one I had as a kid--I sold it on eBay and a few years later it turned up here, so I had to buy it back! It had distinctive damage to it so I knew it was the same one.

Back in 2016 I had just got into the 7800 scene.

 

My first big purchase for this venture was here. I bought a 1984 Boxed 7800 and a lot of games from [mention=21417]eightbit[/mention].

My first attempted purchase was a pile of Apple II disks from 8_is_enuff. He backed out though, and I never bought them. I believe this was late 2019. My first successful purchase was a Super Nintendo bundle from HoshiChiri. Great price, great games, and things that were supposed to be broken turned out to work. This was January 2020.

my first PURCHASE through the marketplace was Fun House & Gradius for NES (from TurdFurgeson in 2014)

 

However, I did have one other transaction before that: I traded Beamrider (5200) for Sentinel (2600).  That was atariBrian.

 

Another however -- I had previously picked up a homebrew game from the store (Ladybug) and done a couple transactions via PM's with a fellow high score club gamer.  That was fun!

 

(and thanks again CrazyClimber for the deals I got from you!)

My first purchase in here was Atarimania by @Red 5. Everything was great. Probably spent over a grand in the Atariage store at this point too.

I don't remember what games they were but I think I bought some 2600 carts from johnnya back in October 2008 - about 2 months after I joined the site.

I bought Pac-Man Collection 7800 in Jan, 2011 from TheNixer, who doesn't seem to have visited since 2014.

I joined about 3 years ago (been on other forums for around 15 years or so, but relatively new here).  Bought two or three lots of 2600 carts, and just kinda disappeared.  Came back on last month and bought some C64 games.  All four transactions were fantastic.

Big Box of crap 2 @the.golden.ax

 

01/2011

 

second item 

Atari Jaguar system w/ box and instructions

original RF adapter

original AC adapter

original controller

original pack-in game - Cybermorph w/ instructions

2nd Atari controller with box

game - Iron Soldier w/ box and instructions & overlay

game - Flip Out w/ box and instructions

game - Dino Dudes w/ box and instructions

game - Club Drive w/ box and instructions

game - Cannon Fodder w/ box and instructions

game - Alien vs. Predator

game - Hover Strike

 

 

The system and the games with boxes were bought brand new by me and are still in new condition (the boxes show some wear). I just tested this system yesterday and it works great. I hate to sell this system but I play it so little that I can't justify keeping it. I would like $135 for everything. That includes domestic (lower 48 states) shipping. I will accept cash, check (must clear before shipping) or silver (4 ounces). Paypal will cost $140 cause it is more of a pain for me.
