I found 20 5200 loose carts at a local retro shop for 1.50 each. I don't have a 5200, but I never see 5200 stuff that cheap, so I snagged them.

Debating if I should try to get my hands on a 5200, or should I try to flip my new little collection for some 2600 stuff? Seems like working ones are going for a mint on eBay right now...

Please let me know if interested in this trashed, yet functional beast.  Shipping will be high, since it's so large.  Also, I have some controllers I was planning on repairing and they will be for sale soon too.

Rick, I think you just answered my question! I am definitely interested, and I can wait for two working controllers before you ship. Just PM me with details on approximate costs and we can go from there.

Cool!  I'll get the controllers going this weekend.  I have one ready to go already.  I'll PM you soon. 

I've been using this 5200 to test controllers as I fix them, and it works really nicely.  Nice video quality.  It's just missing a little armor plating is all :)

That's a hell of a deal! Smart choice also. Despite what the haters say, the 5200 is a wonderful machine!

Hey if anything less armor plating means less weight to ship!

Thanks again for offering this for shipping only, it's very generous! I'd really be an idiot to turn it down :-)

Don't listen to what others say about the 5200...it's a fun machine!  Just make sure to use often...it's doesn't like to sit without being used.  

 

Just out of curiosity...what 5200 games did you find?

Sweet collection right there and for a killer price.  I have a few extras you don't have that I'll include with the 5200.
