Man Sells Old $5-$10 Atari 2600 Game for $31,600
Some people make their money making video games. Others make it by selling old ones.
Last Sunday, a copy of an Atari 2600 game sold for an amazing $31,600 on eBay. The game was Air Raid and it became the thirteenth known copy in existence, and the only one with the complete packaging.
Tanner Sandlin of Austin, Texas, the former owner Air Raid, bought it when he was 11 or 12 years old for between $5 and $10. The funny thing was that he didn't even like the game and it's sat in his garage ever since. Now, decades later, the game was sold for $31,600 on eBay after being starting at just $0.50.
This makes it the second highest price ever paid for a video game, right behind the sealed copy of Stadium Events, which sold earlier this year for $41,300.
