Super RARE Atari 2600 game found - Air Raid

Postby MattMan » Wed Oct 24, 2012 12:01 pm

This is the 2nd or 3rd? Copy of the game to be found with a box. Up until 2010 the box wasn't even known to even exist. This current copy up for auction also comes with a manual, and up until this copy was found the manual wasn't even thought to exist. Last copy sold for almost $32,000. I'm thinking this one might go even higher. It will be fun to watch this auction to it's completion.

I just put in my bid of $10,250 and was quickly out bid. Yes I bid on this!! I would have been happy to own this at that price and although it would have put a big dent in my pocket it would have been nice to own this rare piece of Atari history, but it wasn't meant to be. Maybe I'll get lucky and someday find this out in the wild in the trunk of some old abandoned car or in a dusty basement. Who knows!

Here is the story behind this copy of Air-Raid with a link to the auction on GameGavel.

Well yet another copy found! At this rate this game is gonna go from a 30,000.00 game to a 30.00 game.

This makes 3 confirmed copies with box known to exist with a possible 4th that was rumored from years ago but the owner disappeared. ( or maybe this is the rumored copy??) who knows! This game has always been such a mystery!

This has to affect the price. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Newest auction is on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281011192303?ss ... 1423.l2649
with only 2 days left on this one. I won't be bidding like I did the other.
