We would need to know condition, completeness and if your selling individually or bundled.

If bundled, you will never get near full value, however it is less boxes to pack, less hassle, and less overall shipping charges and supplies.

I generally bundle stuff worth less then $7-8 on its own, because unless your sending it to a friend who really wants that game, your going to end up paying $2.50 to ship a $5 game, and that can get silly after awhile. My advice, make mini bundles w/some lesser rpg's and a system, then sell the rest in themed bundles or individually.

Nothing there is going to make you rich, so depending on your intentions, hard to give you advice. If you just want to be rid of it, put it all up for best offer on racket, or put it up for best offer on ebay. If you want to make money, research completeds on ebay, and then price accordingly (ie, about 15-17% less on a forum, since no ebay fees).

Keep in mind when searching, things like "buy it now" as those will skew high, since it may have been listed for 18 months and it just takes one drunk guy to want a copy of Kid Icarus at 4 in the morning, and he can't wait for the next auction, so he spends $30 on it, but its not worth $30. Best to check completed auctions of items in comparable condition (acceptable to NEW).

Assuming general wear and tear? And assuming you must be offering it up for sale. Then factor in you don't have to ship it or pay any fees, i'd say you are both doing "good".

I'd pay about $75-85 total myself for a used/good condition.

Atari 2600 Carts
Just spotted this tub of 2600 carts. Most are three bucks some are six.
Activision, Apollo, Atari, Imagic, Mattel, Coleco, Sega, Spectravision and U.S. Games.

Even the "venerable" Atari Pacman is here. :D

So far, I'm looking at:

Air Sea Battle - The pack in game.
Armor Ambush
Frogger 2
Mouse Trap
Spy Hunter
Stellar Track - Where did I put my cart!!

See any good games I should grab? :?

There are some quality titles in there... Berzerk, Yars' Revenge, Asteroids...

It really depends on what you have/don't have already.

Moon Patrol and Venture look kinda fun (I'm just going off of Atariage screen shots)...

Porky's is likely worth more than $6 and I'm pretty sure Frogger II is as well. I see Empire Strikes Back, I'd probably grab that too. Think I read that Demons to Diamonds is fun. A lot of those in there aren't worth $3 though.

Updated the previous Reply and spun the pic around.
I had an earlier opportunity at another Thrift store to go nuts. Missed out on some other Fox titles including Alien and Mash. I was looking at Porkys but the reviews didn't look that hot. Rarity might be the reason to get it though I do all see some other uncommon carts in the tub.

I have Berzerk, Yars, Asteroids, Empire Strikes Back and 5200 Moon Patrol; all great games. Venture has poor reviews, but then again its only on real old consoles. Tempting to get all the white Coleco carts. :D

Thanks for the suggestions so far!

I also been hitting hard various review links.

IIRC, Astroblast is a port of the Intellivision game Astrosmash.

On average, Play-N-Trade sells Atari 2600 games for $1. So unless you see a game you just have to have, I'd pass and look elsewhere.

Good point! I really was hoping Jr Pacman was in that tub. Okay I'll throttle back and just get three must haves due to rarity and good gameplay.

Frogger 2
Spy Hunter
Stellar Track

I really can't believe I lost my 2600 Stellar Track game! Sure the reviews say its bad, but it has special meaning to me. It is the game that represents Main Frame gaming of the 70s era. Super Star Trek comes to mind.

I'm still tempted to get the 2600 Coleco games, Atari Age rarity is only a 2 though.

Almost out the door to grab this stuff ............
