Arenafoot Posted October 30, 2015 Report Share Posted October 30, 2015 How about this unique item: "We found a handful of these cartridges while moving our storage facility. We used to host Atari 2600 competitions and this is what was given as a first place prize! This listing is for ( 1 ) 24K Gold Embossed Atari 2600 Olympic Trophy Cartridge It is no easy task to create this thing! These were made for us about a decade ago by a former employee who had about 30 years experience in the exotic car body work business. A standard Atari 2600 Cartridge was stripped and prepared, it was then wrapped in 24K gold embossed exotic car wrap (This wrap is about $89 a square foot.) The only reason these came to be is because he about 5 square feet left from a Delorean restoration. (It has been so long, we don't know if it is actual 24K or just the name given to the color) The emblem was then added to the cartridge (soldered?), it is a genuine 1980 LA Olympic Conference Atari 2600 Video Game Pin. (Which we also sell in our store) The actual cartridge does work, but we don't want to mess with the wrap to test, but the cartridge won't be any earth-shattering title, I believe we used Pac Mans, Space Invaders, maybe ET's etc. Although the wrap is permanent we don't want to surface mark the sheen by inserting it into a system." http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-24K-Gold-1st-Place-Trophy-Olympic-Pin-Atari-2600-Video-Game-System-/301780114295?hash=item46437f1b77:g:EasAAOSwT5tWLpP- Brian Matherne - owner/curator of "The MOST comprehensive list of Atari VCS/2600 homebrews ever compiled." http://tiny.cc/Atari2600Homebrew author of "The Atari 2600 Homebrew Companion" book series available on Amazon! www.amazon.com/author/brianmatherne Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
