Live Auction

The live auction will occur on the evening of Saturday, October 22, 2016 in one of the Expo auditoriums. See the show schedule for the exact time and auditorium. Most of the auction items will be on display in the show hall prior to the auction. The final list of items for auction is subject to change.

Submitting Items for the 2016 Auction

All PRGE vendors are invited to provide items for the live auction. We may also accept a limited number of items from non-vendors. Items will be authorized for inclusion in the auction at the discretion of the PRGE auction committee. We will be strictly controlling the total number of item auctioned this year to keep the auction from running into overtime.

PRGE does not charge any commission or fees to sellers. It is the responsibility of the seller and winning bidder to complete their transaction after the completion of bidding. PRGE will communicate the seller's preferred form of payment to bidders prior to the auction start.

If you have an item you would like to include in the auction, email the details to auctions@retrogamingexpo.com. We have a limited number of items that we can auction. PRGE staff will pre-authorize all auction items before they are listed on this page.

Reserves

Items with a reserve are not considered sold until the bidding reaches a certain amount pre-chosen by the seller (the reserve amount). The auctioneer will indicate when the reserve has been met. The reserve is usually not disclosed to the audience until it has been met.

The Xbox Launch Team 2001 Special Edition is a translucent green Xbox with a jewel that is silk screened with the message "Great work!" and a copy of a printed signature from Bill Gates. This Xbox was sold, not given, to members of the Xbox launch team. Two exclusive translucent green "Duke" controllers were originally included with this console (NOT included in this auction). The buyer had an option to purchase 6 game titles marked "not for resale" at a reduced rate from the Microsoft campus store. The Launch Team 2001 consoles were hardware revision 1.0 and all were produced in a Mexico production facility on November 7, 2001 or November 8, 2001. Since these systems were offered for sale to qualifying employees instead of being given away, not all were sold.

At least several hundred were made although the exact number is unknown.

Official Donkey Kong Penny Bank

Made in 1982 by Superior Toy, this now-rare bank was sold at the height of the arcade game's popularity. As you drop a penny down like DK drops a barrel, you press a lever on the bank at the right moment and Jumpman (Mario) jumps over the penny. Box is still partially sealed and has some slight creases and tears but overall in great shape.

Dreamcast dev unit and employee recognition unit with plaque

Photo 1
Photo 2

Two Dreamcasts, a controller and a VMU, as well as a game dev disc (more than likely a build of a game still in development at the time). One of the Dreamcasts was a gift from Sega to employees for working on the launch of the system. The other is possibly a developers system used to test game builds before they are finalized. The suspected dev unit wouldn't boot up any discs we tried in it.

The VMU has a lot of saves with strange names, so there is probably a file on the VMU that has to be used in conjunction with the system to get it to load dev discs. Not much is known about either system, the game disc or the VMU, so a lot of this information is speculation only.

Game inserts are placed into the middle of the sign.
