Just a little over a month ago I found the following at a resale place (or "boot sale", as I think they're called in some places overseas)...check it out!
*Three Sega Genesis' *Three Genesis controllers *Sega Genesis RF box (out wire to tv cut though) *Madden 96 Genesis game *IMG International Tour Tennis Genesis game *Sony PlayStation PSP ac adapter *Some common computer cable thing that I can't think up the name *Some AC adapter *Motorola ac adapter *some Ericsson power supply with a really odd plug in module, or it's possibly stripped *Some THING I don't know what it is; looks to be like a part of some plastic keychain with a couple of critters on it; I assume this is some game merchandise I'm not familiar with, as the words of Chinoin (maybe the company name?), Koptin and troferit just pop up as drugs when doing online searches with these words [o...k]) *Targus carrying case of some sort (they make cases for laptops and all)
I got all of the above for $20 U. S.
Wow, the idiot who sold me all of that should've done some research on the above, as those Targus cases run from $20-140 APIECE. I'm in the process of selling a few of the items, as most I don't have a need for and can't even test to see if they work. Pretty nuts though!
Nice find. I feel like an idiot because I practically gave away a Atari 2600 Jr. and about 30 games. I found a Space Invaders stand up and need to star downsizing to make room. I told myself I had to start somewhere.
I haven't got it yet the guy is selling two and won't break it up. So that's why I need the room. They are both in good shape but I just worry about taking up that extra room with a second title. I talked with a friend but he wants a Donkey Kong machine.
You gotta love general trash pickup. A friend was out walking and came across a boxed system in someone's trash can. It wasn't an Atari so he was interested so he picked it up for me. He called and said " Hey I found this Odyssey2 with the box and some kind of attachment but no games then hello.. hellooo. I live about 20 minutes away but this was a find. When I get there nad open the box it didn't have the foam inserts but it had the voice add-on with the appropriate power supply. This has a street value of about twenty five U.S. Dollars. So I asked him do I owe you anything when he started to shake his head no I thanked him and was back in the car.
As I'm driving away I'm thinking was he being sarcastic when he said your welcome. Oh well it didn't matter. In my mind I was years younger and reliving my first cart based console all over again. To me that is priceless and for everything else - quickly regains train of thought - oops no advertising.
I think they are original sealed, most of them still have the Mongomery Wards store sticker price still on them.
Yeah I'd say they're legit then!! Must've been in the back of some M. Wards store when they went out of business and then they (somehow) ended up in your local flea market...kind of like how *I* ran across a tabletop pinball machine last year called The Entertainer that still had the City of Houston 1978 registration tag on it (No, I didn't buy it; no money or room )
Yes I have an Astrocade, so I`ll keep them for now.
How was that machine anyway? I don't know much about it, as I only played The Incredible Wizard on it, and it seemed to be a pretty good Wizard of Wor port, although a bit easier than the original (if I remember correctly). I don't know about how the rest of its library fared other than that.

You guys might like this one...
An Atari Asteroids Deluxe Cabaret! Only 1005 were manufactured. This one works, but a bit dusty and will soon have a good home! $300
Also in the works: A stripped Asteroids Cabaret ($25) with everything but the monitor, PCB, and power supply. And a Missile Command Cocktail ($150 maybe lower), which if I buy it, I will take the parts out and move it to the Asteroids Cabaret and convert it to Missile Command! I'll save the Asteroids stuff for a rainy day.
I played these 3 games a lot when I was younger, on the real cabinets, console ports, and even on my old Asteroids and Missile Command Game Boy cartridge. Now I associate Asteroids being together with Missile Command, so I want an Asteroids Deluxe Cabaret next to a Missile Command Cabaret in my apartment! I've come full circle.
