If you were a gamer back in the early 80's you had an Atari 2600. The system was in many homes and the games were horrible compared to what we have today. Many geeks still have the systems from their childhood and some of the games are worth big money.

A guy named Tanner Sandlin from Austin, Texas read a story about rare video games and realized he owned one of the games. The game in question is Air Raid. Sandlin had the game in its original box and put it up on eBay.

 

The game ultimately went for $31,600 and is only the 13th known copy left and the only one with its full package. Go check your garage or basement now; you might be sitting on enough money for a new car.
