Retro Gaming
#27
I had an ad up on Craigslist saying I was looking for Intellivision games. Some guy emailed me and he sent a picture, a cardboard box with nine boxed games. I asked how much and he said, $15...that included the console. He mentioned he thought he had all of the Atari stuff out of that box. Of course I then asked about the Atari stuff and if it was for sale too. He said he had a console, some controllers and 40 or 50 games. He said $40...for everything, both consoles and all the games. He just wanted it out of the basement.

I agreed, met the guy, took a quick look at the Atari box and smiled. I went into the Atari stuff without a picture or any idea what he had. It's an Atari 2600 JR, which I didn't have and there's actually seventy three games. I didn't recognize some of the titles, so I'll have to see if there's anything rare there. Out of the whole lot, there's probably only twenty or so that I already had. Some of the labels are in rough shape, but that's not surprising considering the age of the things.

There was a tenth Intellivision game hiding in the bottom of the box. There's also a bunch of Atari catalogs and that kind of stuff.
I don't know if it's the carts or the boxes, but they do have a musty smell. I have them airing out right now.
