Earlier today, my family and I went to the flea market in Lancaster, MA. We left with some things for our son and this Atari VCS – CX2600 from 1978…for me! It cleaned up nicely:
Here’s the box:
The package included 2 joysticks and 2 paddle controllers. The sellers also added 45 games, most of them with manuals. They were asking $100 but without me even asking, offered $60. I thought it was very fair and jumped on it.
Back in the day, my folks didn’t buy me a 2600. Instead they bought a used Magnavox Pong system. 😉 Now I finally have my Atari!
