E.T. cartridges from Atari landfill go for more than $1,500 on eBay

Polygon: "The first cartridges unearthed from Atari's legendary landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico have been sold on eBay, with multiple copies of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600 commanding more than $1,500, despite their damaged and dirty state."

The story is too old to be commented.

Not even $100 would woo

and people putting old ET carts they owned on Ebay after muddying them up in their garden, in 3, 2 ,1.

seriously though, is this the thing i read about where the money raised is going to charity?

if so, that would explain the high bids.

if not, that guy's just made thousands selling rubbish. o_O
