Well, if they are scams, the timing certainly makes them the biggest idiots in the history of scamming. You've got the rarest game ever - make copies and sell both at the same time.

Well the one on Game Gavel right now is the first copy that was discovered before anyone even knew the game existed.

The eBay one suddenly appearing though is incredibly suspicious.

Hey everyone,

This isn't a scam. The auctioneers are friends of mine and their shop in Philly is real. They're not game collectors. They grew up collecting random weird shit because they loved it. What's weirder than a dinky little Atari game about Moses?

But it's not a scam. I think it's incredibly cool that they made this find in their own collection. Their love of novelty items seems to have finally paid off. That is, if anyone is really willing to put up money for it.

^That comment only adds more red flags, imo.

So the OP now has (2) posts on racket, one to advertise the item, and one to offer legitimacy to both copies available for auction. I'd advise potential bidders to contact Joe over at AtariAge (or other long-term members) before making a bid.

If they are friends and know each other....and have the only 2 copies in existence, putting them up for auction opposite each other at the exact same time is not very bright.

The prices thus far:

GG: $5,500

ebay: $7,100

And both auctions have reserves that have not been met...
Why have reserves? That just pushes potential bidders away.

the guy who discovered the original cart in '07 lived in ohio, near cincinnati. city view heights is the location of the GG auction. the pics of the cart in the auction match the pics of the cart from 2007.

my guess? the guy who found the original one (who is just a reseller) somehow caught wind of the one that was found in philly by the guys with the worst camera for youtube ever, then decided "hey, i should make some bucks on this too." it's been documented that he put his original ebay auction on hold.

the poster here is probably just trying to generate interest for the ebay auction on various forums.
