|I think your guide is way off mark. Get in the real world and take a look at what things are selling for at auctions. I only wish I could find freeway in excellant condition for $2.00. your prices may be right for the amount of carts out there and the amount of collectors there were a few years ago but there is alot more of us out there now and if you were to bid $2.00 for Freeway everytime it came for bid you would never own it. Get a grip.|
The next day he followed it with:
|The auction ended on the Freeway that I was watching the total was $2.01 with no shipping I might add. I guess it is my turn in life to eat a little crow. Sorry about being such an idiot. By the way, your sight is very cool.|
There is always lots of debate when it comes to putting a price on an Atari game, but since we live in a capitalistic society, it seems to be what everyone really wants to know. So I've tried to come up with a price for each game that's somewhat representative of what it might bring on the open market.
To illustrate, let's assume I have a copy of Pitfall that I want to sell. If I put it up for auction for $1 where it's the only copy listed, and 20 people want to buy it, it may sell for up to $20. But if I put the same game up for auction when 5 other people list it and only one person wants to buy it, it may not even sell for $1. Got it? (This is not the same phenomenon that caused the bubble and subsequest crash in internet stocks in 2000. That was due to greedy corporate scum like solomon smith and barney, enron, etc. (whoops did I say that?)).
Now, if you thinks a price I've listed isn't representative of the long-term Atari market, I'd love to hear about it. But be nice. This site's been alot of work.
