Old ‘E.T.’ Atari Games Dug up in New Mexico Desert Sold For Thousands
Back in April 2014, a treasure was found in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico. And we aren't talking about a couple of video games from someone's collection, we are talking about 1,300 games uncovered in the landfill by the city.
The Alamogordo City Council decided to sell about 900 of the games on eBay and they came up with a hefty profit for the city. Those games sold for approximately $108,000. Turns out that the urban legend about the games being buried there by Atari was not a legend after all.
