Buried Atari E.T. Games Hit eBay

 |  |  |  |  November 5, 2014


Remember a few months back when they dug up all of those Atari 2600 games from the landfill? That was some exciting geek archaeology. Now, thanks to the Tularosa Basin Historical Society, these cartridges are for sale -on eBay.

If you want to grab your own copy of E.T., Asteroids, Star Raiders, or Centipede cartridges that were rescued from a landfill in a desert, now is your chance. The highest price right now are some E.T. games in the box, going for $500 with eight days left. These games come with a certificate of authenticity from the city of Alamogordo. All of the boxes are understandably messed up and crushed – definitely not mint.

This is the first batch of cartridges and boxes rescued from the dump. They will put at least another 700 items up for sale if this batch sells well. Now you can own a piece of Atari history.
