    Default Digital Press Collector's Guide, Edition 5

    Does anyone want to buy my Edition 5 Collector's Guide? It's from 1998, I think.

    Mint condition other than the Atari 2600 section where I check off the games in my early collection in pencil.

    Any takers? Offers? I'm not really sure what it's worth.

    I sold mine way back for around $20 or $30. The problem, that I see, with things like this is that the prices and rarities are sooooo outdated, that who would want this? It was excellent for its time, maybe the first attempt and bringing collectors together and making game collecting something serious, but by now the book is just too outdated to be worthwhile.

    agreed, now that collecting has more or less hit mainstream, prices fluctuate too often to be tracked in any books. Any real value can only be derived by checking the several collector's forums and ebay.

    If i recall correctly, these books also had brief descriptions of games and maybe a screenshot or two? Or am I thinking of another release. I wouldn't mind having a printed encyclopedia of every modern game, but I kind of doubt this is that.

    Maybe OP can show some pictures of what is inside.
