Bought this Atari 2600 Lot today....

Bought this lot today from a Craiglister... $50 for the lot, 100% working, Atari 2600 (4 switcher), Paddles, 2 CX-40s, A sealed never opened copy of "Home Run", loose carts in holders: Pac-Man, Bowling, Combat, 3D TTT, Breakout, Super Breakout, Pitfall!, Video Checkers, Video Pinball and Basketball. Outside of the normal wear and tear on a few of the cartridges, this machine looks brand new with out cleaning. I'm stoked to own a 2600 again.. it's been a long, long time...



Looks better than I thought connected to my HDTV.

    Very Nice!!!

    I looked, and was gonna post a pic of my C/L "starter buy", not quite as good as yours, but ok.

    2600 stuff seems to breed-you don't really realize how much is out there for the getting until you start looking for it, my collection of games and systems grew quickly, just by "chance", after I started paying attention.

    You know, now, that you have to get a Harmony Cart, right?

    :P

    I say, if getting an NES Everdrive-spend the extra cash, get the case/stickers, is nice to have and long-run good idea, but get the cheapest Harmony you can find, the expensive one is only good for a couple homebrew games.

    Thanks for the advice on the Harmony cart. I'll grab one of those and a Composite Mod kit sometime in the near future. I've had a NES Everdrive cart for a while now but I'm not sure what you mean by "Case/Stickers"? I think it's just the standard Everdrive cart..?..

    I'm not sure, I actually think "Everdrive" is licensed to several companies, mine is Krizz-was just talking about the "deluxe" package:



    I usually go as cheap as I can, but this was a Birthday/Fathers Day present, Wife insisted I go all out!

    :)
