This will be a quick post for today but I wanted to shows this insane atari 2600 auction. It’s really a one of a kind auction and I doubt you’ll ever see something like this again. The seller has a bunch of Atari 2600 test chips! Here’s what he has to say:
“These are a one of a kind item. To my knowledge ALL the other chips were destroyed years ago when the company stopped making atari games. These are actual production line test chips, not betas, but test chips to ensure playability as they came off the production lines. These chips were NEVER intended to be sold to the public. The chip adapters need to be gently cleaned in order to be used. The chips have been kept in anti-static foam the entire time I’ve had them. I can ensure and give verifying data that I am the original owner without question. The Smithsonian Institute has made it clear to me that they’d like to acquire these chips when I contacted them directly. On Dec 31, I will send them to the Smithsonian if no one purchases them.”
Ok, will the price of $90,000.00 be met? I highly doubt it unless there’s some celebrity who happens to be an Atari nut. It’s really one of those auctions where you see this insanely high price tag, but if you were selling the exact same thing theres no way you’d go lower than that. It’s really sellers remorse and that is the only amount that will make him never regret his decision.
