Brand New Old Stock Intellivision Cassettes Found

Recommended Posts

Had an amazing find today at the flea market today.

 

8 Shrinkwrapped (unopened) Intellivision Cassettes!

 

4 Conversational French 

3 Basic Data Storage

1 Geography Challenge

 

I'm going to keep one of each and add them to my collection.

 

Not sure what these are selling for now a days.

 

I've been trying to buy these for years and always dropped out when they went north of $500 (boxed of course). But these are shrinkwrapped.

 

Any guess on what these will go for?

 

Thanks!

I sold a NIS Jack LaLanne for just over $1K in 2017. The Basic Data Storage Cassettes did not do as well more recently.

Did they have any idea they had some value?

How much did the lot run you?

Wow! Just... Wow! Congratulations!

 

I gave up on flea markets when I started having kids, and after finding nothing for years. Persistence pays off!

True, the death of flea market finds happened around the mass production of the smart phone. Everyone looks stuff up. There are a ton of resellers in San Antonio and the flea markets are usually bone dry, especially for classic stuff.

Good luck brother! There's still stuff out there, you never know when an old storage unit gets sold off to flea market resellers.

Congrats on a ridiculous find. I'm betting on $500-1000 at auction. I might be interested in a sealed French. Are you after anything trade wise? My geography could use upgraded. Lol

I'm speechless...

My most sincere and envious congratulations!

 

I suggest seeing if the seller at the flea market knows where they are from and if there is more stuff like that hidden in a storage unit or in a cellar. Who knows, you could also double your luck.

Very impressive find!  Put them up on eBay.  I'd expect the Conversational French to sell for a lot but its hard to be sure.  I'd say between $700 to $1400 each.  As for the blank BASIC tapes, they will go for a lot less, perhaps $100-$170.  Those are my guesses.
