Unearthed Atari Games From Landfill Fetch More than $100K

Buyers from 45 states and 14 countries have paid more than $100,000 for a cache of Atari game cartridges dug up from a New Mexico landfill last year, including "E.T. The Extraterrestrial."

The April 2014 dig ended speculation surrounding an urban legend that Atari had discarded hundreds of games more than 30 years ago, reported The Alamogordo Daily News.

A film crew documented Joe Lewandowski as he dug up the Atari cartridges, reported The Associated Press. In addition to the "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" cartridges, Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles.
