The Movie Trading Company

Vintage Stock recently bought out The Movie Trading Company, a Texas-based retail chain selling new and used merchandise. One benefit of the buyout for nostalgia enthusiasts is that The Movie Trading Company now carries classic video games, including cartridges for the Atari 2600, Odyssey2, ColecoVision, NES, Super NES, Genesis, and more. Pre-NES carts usually go for a buck or two, regardless of the scarcity or condition of the game. After visiting several locations around the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I found the following Atari 2600 games for a mere $1.99 each: Tapper, Karate, Mountain King, Bank Heist, M.A.D., Deadly Duck, No Escape!, and Quick Step.

Other brick-and-mortar stores that carry classic video games include: Video Game Connections; Video Game Exchange; Game X Change; and The Digital Press Videogames Store.
