Atari I/O Retro Junk Box 2!

Recommended Posts

It looks like we are going to do one more junk box before the holidays!


What it is: Someone (this time Rowsdower) fills a large USPS Priority Mail Flate Rate Box full of retro related items and sends it to another member. They take out what they want, fill it back up and send it to the next person. It keeps going until it returns to the original sender.


History: The first Retro Junk Box started as a collaboration between The Retro League and Cartoon Retrocast podcasts. It has also been done by The Retroist and The Retro Junkies Network.


Who can participate: This is open to members in good standing who have reached Orange Status* (or successful traders with at least 50 posts here), live in the US and have been active in the forums or chats during the last month. (See your avatar to see the fruits you have earned).

* Orange Status is mysteriously rewarded between 100 & 150 posts. 


What is required: Participants must send the box out within 3 days of getting it, pay for the postage to send it out ($17.90 in store or $15.80 online) and must post a photo or video of what they took out. (leave the rest as a mystery!)


Other Notes: Since it is free to do so with Priority Mail, I would insure the box for $50 to help pay to fill another one in the unlikely event that the USPS ever lost it. Please keep the box mostly (at least 51%) gaming related. Newer items are ok if they are retro related in some way. Please try to be fair in what you replace value wise and please no duplicate games on the same system. Please avoid putting in broken items/games if possible.  Please use packing material to fill in nooks and crannies to prevent items from getting broken. (Plastic bags work good for this)

Feel free to reuse and decorate the box!


If you meet the requirements and agree to the terms, please let me know by responding to the thread along with what state you are located in so we can begin to order the list. DO NOT POST YOUR FULL ADDRESS HERE  :)

Also, if you need to be on a certain spot on the list, because you won't be available later, let us know (for instance, if you are going on a trip or work assignment).

I need to get more experience i.e. Posts. I really like this idea, maybe by the time it starts I will have enough. Lol.


You know what's funny is last time StormSurge was in the same situation, but he hit orange just in time and now he has over 400 posts!

Just take a little time, search the forums for topics to comment on and make a few new threads. You'll be there soon!
