Buying Christmas gifts for game collectors can be tricky. They usually own all the easy to find games for their favorite systems. Maybe your lucky and the collector on your list is starting to collect a new console and has a huge list of games they need, but more often then not their collection is almost complete.
I hear from collectors all the time "I only need 6 more games to have the complete NES collection". So what do you get for these collectors? Here are a few ebay auctions up for sale right now that I'm pretty sure they don't own:
The opening bid is $15,000 which definitely sounds like a lot but the 1991 Campus Challenge for NES recently sold for $20K. So this gift is almost too cheap to pass up.
Pepsi Invaders for Atari 2600 is up for sale now.
Pepsi Invaders was made by Coke and given away at a Coke sales convention. Only 125 were ever made.
selling for $9.99 right now and will probably close at around $150-200. That's 1-100th the price of Campus Challenge 92.
Caltron 6-in-1 is an unlicensed game with six games on the cartridge. All of them are notoriously bad though so don't expect the collector to play it very long.
Whatever your budget is give the gift of game collecting this year - buy a rare game for a loved one.
