Another New Music Machine 2600

Sealed Music Machine
There is a Music Machine for Atari 2600 auction on ebay. The rare game sold for $5,250 last time it sold in November 2009 and bidding on this auction is already at $1,050.

One word of caution for potential buyers of this game. It looks like the seller has multiple sealed copies of Music Machine for Atari 2600. Here is a picture from the auction.
Lots of Sealed Music Machine Games
The game sold for so much the first time because it was super rare to find a sealed copy, but if this seller found a box of these somewhere there might be another three coming up for auction at some point and potentially even more.

Looking at the seller's personal listing page, I wonder if the image of 4 Music Machine games is actually a composite showing all 4 edges of one cartridge.

@mndrix - that might be right. But all four sides look to be the same length and the game isn't a square so two of the sides should be different lengths. Unless he scaled those images, in which case the fonts would be a bit small.

I will ask the seller and get some clarification.

On the ebay article itself he mentions he got it from when he worked at the company, and kept this one as a souvenir, no box of countless copies.

Also, its the same game, all 4 angles. You'll notice 2 of them are extra high, different copies would all have the same length. The 2 short sides are extra high because they're zoomed in and magnified to have the same length.

This seller only has one cartridge. The picture is a composite of the 4 different sides of the box.

Yep, you guys are right. The image is a composite of the four sides. He does not have multiple copies so the game isn't suddenly uncommon.

Thank you everyone for correcting me.
