ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Another batch of Atari game cartridges unearthed in a New Mexico landfill are going up for auction.

The Alamogordo Daily News ( ) says between 300 and 400 games uncovered in an Alamogordo dump in April are now open for bidding on eBay.

Joe Lewandowski, a consultant for the film companies that documented the dig, says the offerings include “Yars’ Revenge,” ”Super Breakout” and “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.”

Lewandowski says 50 games at a time will be posted on eBay over the next couple of weeks.

He says there’s no telling how much money the games will bring in. He says he is still surprised an auction earlier this month generated $37,000.

Lewandowski plans to present a report on the eBay auction’s progress to Alamogordo commissioners Tuesday.
