Family unearths rare Atari game from storage, it could sell for $30,000

An original cartridge for Air Raid, a shoot-em-up from Men-A-Vision published for the Atari 2600 in 1982 and considered the console's rarest title, surfaced on video game auction site GameGavel earlier this week, skyrocketing to a high bid of nearly $18,000 in less than a day. (Atari, Retro)

That's awesome, I could just imagine the excitement when he found the box. You could see his hands were shaking when he was trying to put the tray back into the box.

Yeah, it's like winning the lotto. I wish I had kept all of my games and boxes from years past... I seemed to just move on each generation, keeping my consoles and just the games I loved. Now that you can download almost anything, and HD remakes are around, I have a few boxes of games and consoles in storage just sitting. But selling most of my NES and SNES and Master System, Genesis and TG16 collection back in the day is what I kick myself in the ass for. I think I still have everything from N64 onward, and a select group of Atari 2600 and NES games.

I have stopped selling old games altogether. It just isn't worth it.
