There's a video game store not far from me...reasonable prices on the games themselves, but consoles? Forget it; highway robbery. (Although I wouldn't doubt it's because where they are, the rents are pretty outrageous.) But the guy there told me they use the AtariAge rarity guide as a way to price their Atari stuff.
But FFS....Adventure -- rarity 1 -- very, very, very common, but man...try to get a CIB copy for a reasonable price.
And Basic Math. It gives me a headache to see what people ask for CIBs of that one, too. For a rarity 1 game.
I guess it's kind of like the "butcher cover" version of The Beatles' Yesterday And Today album. It is **not rare**. There were 750,000 copies in circulation. But the reason they command such high prices is that all the dealers bought 'em up. Makes my blood boil.
