So I decided to be a super nice boyfriend and completly re-do my girlfriends condo. during the process I ended up in the basement trying to move an old armour... during my frustration in moving it I took a short break and was rifling through old junk for entertainment. short story short, I stumbled upon a brand new Atari 2600 with like 15 cartridges. I guess she got it when she was a kid but never even had intrest enough to open it up and receved new cartridges every so often... she gave it to me!!!. I can't wait to crack this thing open and start gaming it up...lol. on the other hand... I'm unable to decide if I should even open it... I mean how often do you see an Atari still in its packaging

They aren't worth very much in general. I normally see them going for about 30-50 dollars. But being new and wrapped could be something completely different. I don't know that I've seen one of those!

I'd save it. Look around the net and see how much they worth if there's none for sale then it probably worth a lot. I'd wait awhile cause then ur gf might get mad. Plus it'll uncrease in value.

. If you have River Raid, I'll give ya $25 for the lot. . As per Goodhart, I'd check around and see if being unopened would add anything to it's value to a collector. You'd be surprised at what ppl will pay for something like that.

Maybe check around first to see if it is worth anything "unopened" ? :-)
