Picked These Two Ballys Up

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone saw this on the bay, but it was listed for $199 obo. They were advertised as not powering up, but it comes with 3 lids and a stack of programs as you can see. I offered $150 (shipping included) and it was accepted. My hope is those lids survive the transport :)

 

Any of the programs look good? Also, it looks like the model numbers of the two Ballys are different. Could anyone educate me on the differences between the models?

 

Thanks!

One of the pictured Astrocades that you bought (included in this post) doesn't have an RF cord.  It seems to have some odd connector instead.

 

Here are some links to the information about Bally Arcade model numbers:

You may want to read more of the complete model number thread than just the above post.

 

Back in January a list of Bally Serial numbers was started here:

Maybe you can add your Astrocade's numbers to this list.

 

You've got some quite rare items in that list.  The Bally BASIC and the 300-baud interface are hard to find now.

 

I hope that you can get at least one of the Astrocade units up and running.  Consider joining the Astrocade discussion forum if you need help:

As far as games in your lot, "Incredible Wizard" seems the best of the bunch.  Since you now own both versions of Bally BASIC, this gives you access to all of the hundreds of BASIC programs on tape at BallyAlley.com.

 

Have fun with your new consoles and good luck!

Any interest in selling the Montgomery Ward lid?   I’ve got a Ward unit without the correct lid and have been looking for one.

Adam- Thanks for all the information!!!! I will definitely need to check some of the basic programs out!

 

@Atari_Bill 

I think I am going to keep it, as one of the two units based on the serial # BA-1000-2 is a ward. Thanks for your offer though!
