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
