Shkrelli (ie: smuggy face Pharmabro) would have purchased it, but he is now on his way to US prison system for next 7 years.

That and some of his other toy items also being taken from him since various assets will be going back to investors of the prior medical pharmacy company that he took money from. His 'house-of-cards' all finally fallen for good. :-)

Good luck with that. I do hope a millionaire will buy it for us to get it dumped.

It's too bad he went to jail for screwing over rich people, instead of for screwing over AIDS patients.

Don't worry, by the time he gets out he'll be an AIDS patient himself.

The thing is, Scott hasnít released anything in years, AFAIK, if he did sell it, he could likely release the roms the next day.
Guess it doesnt matter.
You know anything he has is backed up so technically its safe.

Yeah, no Marbleman but rest assured, its backed up.
I almost had Akka Arrh. Again backed up and safe in multiple locations but we canít have it yet.
Tron prototype has me concerned. Currently its missing.

Looks like it didn't sell, i guess no one wanted to fork out six and a half grand for a baseball game regardless of how rare it may be.

The guy's crazy if he thinks he can sell it for a stupid price on the premise that it's rare and undumped/un-MAME'd and then turn around and release the ROMs. His collection isn't worth what he thinks it is.

Given some of the crazy prices that have been paid in the last 2-3 years I can see where he's coming from, although I do think he might have missed the boat there too.

Also I think one of the problems with Atari protos is that there are so many of them they somehow become less interesting, and instead become 'Just another Atari proto that isn't Marbleman' so nobody really wants to put down that kind of money as they're just waiting for Marbleman. Maybe once Marbleman is released, and the world can see how terrible it is that might change, but for now that is kinda the case.

Plus Japanese protos seem to be considered more valuable anyway. While a lot of Atari's games are classics they do have a certain 'Amiga shareware' feel to them (due to the American design / techniques) compared to many of the Japanese ones which I think means people struggle to see them as being worth as much.

But yeah, I don't think $7k for a baseball game was going to happen regardless of who made it, you'd probably struggle to get $700

I'd have to assume, too, since it is a proto on a known Atari System 1 Cart, as soon as you'd get roms released, people would be trying to convert some less desirable Atari System 1 game to this one, further devaluing things. Hammer Away comes to mind as another once one of a kind proto that always seems to have a PCB up for sale on EBAY or elsewhere - another Sega System 18 board giving up it's original game for profit.

Everything loses resale value when it's dumped and every major system is either currently being attacked for conversions or will be shortly. I don't know why we keep talking about it.
