Sometimes I trade and occasionally buy from individuals on Facebook, so I figured it needed to have its own thread.

I'll start the bidding high with this beauty I got from a cash/trade in IntellivisionInvasion facebook.

The other overlay is in terrible shape, but this was an amazing pickup for me all things considered!    Me likey!

This is better than what I thought it looked like.

FF8 was $15, and Magical Starsign was $11.

He told me he found everything at a yard sale. Do you think these were the original paddles bundled with this 2600? Also what sticks would i need to get to complete this box?

I think those are the original paddles. 

 

This one would have come with 2 joysticks that came in a plain cardboard holder.  I'll have to take a picture of that so you can see what it looks like.  It's the kind of thing that is probably impossible to buy, but pretty easy to replicate.

It kind of looks like the left part of this picture....only a little bigger to hold 2 joysticks with the sticks facing each other and side by side.

Although this 2600 is missing the power suply (i tested it. It works) it did come with this empty box. Now i have seen other peoples complete boxed 4 switches and ive not seen this AC adapter come with it. Notmally ive seen boxes that saw atari VCS or 2600 on em

Video Pinball uses the same power adapter.  It would not shock me to see one of these in a 2600 box.  In those days, Atari used up whatever stock they had.  You'll also see different packaging for the various items inside the outer box.

As promised, my latest acquisitions.

The Dr. Mario and Virtua Racing were Facebook finds. Dr. Mario was $5, and Virtua Racing was $15.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Namco Museum Megamix, and Okami were Gamestop purchases.
