The game Air Raid is pretty rare and up until now, no one ever had a copy of it that included its original box. Well that has changed because eBay seller aa0154 has placed on eBay his copy of the game along with a box for it that he recently recovered. He was nice enough to include a little background on how the total package came together…
I clearly remember buying this game back in 1984 or 1985. My mother had taken me to a Tuesday Morning store in Arlington Texas. It was near the corner of Arkansas Lane and Medline Drive. Not too long after I purchased it, I got an Atari 800 and stopped playing the 2600. Since then, the Air Raid cartridge has been boxed up in my garage along with my 2600 and other games for over 20 years. The game box was stored separately and I just found it. I had no idea that I still had these game boxes. I can send you a picture of the other boxes upon request.
So if you have a couple of grand laying around and want to own a unique piece of Atari 2600 history, why not check it out.
