    Default Coleco Telstar Value?

    Complete in Box, not sure what model it is. What's it worth, I'm looking at buying one.

    Need to at least know if it's a Telstar or the Telstar Arcade.

    If it's just a Telstar most gamers would consider picking it up for $5, maybe. The Telstar Arcade still has a small audience and is the valuable one of the group.
    Selling collection, Atari through XBox. Send a PM with whatever games you're looking for.

    A complete Telstar would be worth more than $5, if it's the original Coleco Telstar I've seen several people asking around $20-$30 for one in good condition. Out of all the Pong systems out there I would either want an actual Atari one or a Coleco Telstar, I'm not really interested in 3rd party Pong clones but there's just something about the Coleco ones that I still like for some reason.

    Asking isn't selling. If they actually get that, more power to 'em, but the odds of that happening are low. There's just no demand for Telstars these days.

    Show me a complete one that sold for $5 total and I'll retract my statement.

    If I ever saw a complete one for sale for $5 I would have bought one, it's actually one of the things I'm hoping to find at some point. A teacher in high school brought in a Telstar for us to play with so I'd eventually like one. Even at the game swap meets that get set up around here I've seen boxed ones in the range I've mentioned, and they sell at that amount.

    Coleco Telstars sell at our shows, and the range mentioned is fair. Boxed ones $25 to $40, pending on condition. I would pay that range all day for ones I did not have.

    Thanks swlovinist, that's what I was looking for. I know how to search ebay, but if you're running off ebay for an idea of a "local sale" value, you're looking in the wrong place.

    I'm glad lots of people think this way. It allows me to make lots of money. Off local sales and Ebay
