    Those paddles look brand new. Is there a 999,999 in your future?

    They say “Gemini” on them I don’t know if that means anything

    They are made by Coleco if they are Gemini.

    Just throwing this out there: I freakin' HATE it when sellers put price tags ON THE DAMNED LABEL. I have a tremendous amount of irrational contempt for them.

    i can live with it on hardware, where it drives me wild is when its on the box itself or the sticker of the game. now that does fill me with RATIONAL contempt

    oh if atariage is reliable (likely is) the gemini paddle was not made by coleco but rather a company named gemini. the "coleco gemini" system's paddle was a dual joystick/paddle controller. also, according to the atariage thread i found earlier, these paddles tend to have far less jitter

    so yes, could be some good scores coming up.

    Exactly !! I used to have rare boxes, like "MudBuggy" and "Dreadnaught Factor" ... with "KAYBEE - SPECIAL: $3.99" permanently on the box. Hard to convince someone it's a valuable box when it says "Special - $3.99" on it LOL.

    ps) I got my Intellivoice in late 1983 for $8.99 in Buffalo. It was around $85.00 with tax here.... But the Intellivioice came out about 9 months prior to the crash; so half of them sold for liquidation prices.

    Nice find William !!! I have a set of paddles but I don't think they're anything like your new set. I just can't control anything with them :)
