Here's a cheaper one.

I really need to start doing some landfill digs and offering trash products on Ebay for opening bids of a quarter mil it seems.
Technically not the same. That's a retail copy, not one that made it into the landfill. I do think a landfill copy is more collectible, but this guy is insane to think it's worth over a mil.

There are two more on Ebay right now:

$100k - https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Howard-Scott-Warshaw-Collection-Atari-Alamogordo-Dig-ET-Yars-Raiders/303447246274?hash=item46a6dd85c2:g:g4UAAOSwbEFeH6Ky
$1.2mil - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-E-T-Video-Game-From-the-Alamogordo-NM-Landfill-Dig/163818810316?hash=item26245cabcc:g:jM8AAOSwPn1dVDnO

The later one is even more stupid. 50 grand higher and a worse presentation for sure. Even the 100k one I'd call high, but certainly the one to buy if you have way to much money and need to own this. No fancy display or whatever, but they have the COAs, and more games. So you can skip the million dollar shadow box if this is your thing. I still feel like this should be worth a couple grand, tops. The COA's would imply there are at least 9,000 of these out there. Not exactly super rare.

There is a market for this as a collectible it's just not that rare.

I mean wasn't there tens of thousands of these encrusted in cement when they buried them? I know that ~850-900 were sold at auction for ~$100k. I might pay ~$100 realistically for one and buy a case to show my nerd friends in my den. Alright maybe I'd buy one for several hundred dollars because I'm a helpless nerd.

Thousands? Certainly not
Tens of thousands? Fuck yourself
Hundred of thousands? My poor heart
Millions? I'll just stroke out right here.
