I don't usually post auctions as the extra exposure can inflate the price and stop you guys getting a good deal but I think that ship has already sailed..

Totally agree, never enjoyed this but understand why people do.

About 10 years ago, Nad used to call it ' Papergay ' always creased me up LOL my argument was that it should have been called ' Gayboy ' we were both right of course. LOL

So, will it even get a bid at that price, do we think? If it's all original and not refurbed, it looks in great shape.

Paperboys sexuality is his own business, he may have cornered a particular market, delivering only to those of a certain type of sexual preference, either way it’s a f**king great game.

It's one of those Marmite games.

It's in lovely condition that's for sure but I'm not sure it's a 5k cab? Although nothing is surprising me at the moment.

We'll see.

Great game but silly price IMO - I would not pay that  !!!!!

"ship has already sailed" - 3 or 4 times by the look of it.

But I suppose supply and demand and when was the last time a fully working one showed up ??

I doubt it will sell at that price. Monitor doesn't even look to be giving a great picture. I wonder if it's all original too? Or covered in repro artwork?

You can bring one over from the USA for much less than this. Think $2,500-$3,000 is about the value over there.

If it does sell, I might be tempted to sell mine and then import a better one.

Now then Sir, we know that's never gonna happen! Smile

Although if this one fetches that shocking price maybe you will have an extra incentive LOL

Incidentally of my selection of games it's one of my kids favourites but maybe I should stop the little 'darling' riding those handlebars in the slammy crashy way all kids do.... but that's what they are for at the end of the day. Try that again and I'll bite ya....

sh*t game but one of those landmark games we all had to have a crack at back in the 80s probably due to the handlebars alone . More chance of catching the corona virus than someone paying 5k for one . Nice to own tho for the right price .
