The totally unofficial and use at your own risk,
Arcade Game Collector Price Guide

1

These prices are from my personal experiences and dealings over the last 20 years. Prices can vary from area to area, and from situation to situation. Condition and originality are always King. This guide is not a iron clad rule please use it as a guide or tool only. With any collectable prices can and will go up and down as the market dictates.

2

If you are collecting arcade games for an investment please reconsider this strategy. Asking prices on Ebay tend to be higher than average, as well as prices from commercial resellers. The prices listed are for working and complete games. Games lacking original components, with heavy damage, or non-working command less.

3

Games which have little abuse, home use only, or owned by someone in the industry (former video game employees, etc.) can command a higher price. Always consult an expert before buying something you are not sure of. All prices are subject to change for any number of market conditions or interests. 

NOTE: NEW PRICE GUIDE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS (Consider this page in a working "Beta" mode right now). It's ok to bookmark this page but be aware the document is getting updated quickly so direct bookmarks to the doc might disappear since updates are happening weekly on average. Please READ the first three pages of the guide (the introduction pages) before reaching out to me with questions :-D
