"Air Raid", not to be confused with Air Raiders or River Raid, is considered to be the rarest game released for the Atari 2600. Its cartridge is a blue T-handle design with a picture of flying saucers attacking a futuristic city. It was the only game released by Men-A-Vision and had an extremely limited distribution, making it highly sought after by video game collectors. It is not uncommon for the game to sell in the thousands of dollars when listed on eBay. On April 10, 2010 the only believed to be complete game at the time known to still exist sold for $31,600. The next known copy to surface on the internet was on October 22, 2011. The eBay auction offered an incomplete version of the game. Air Raid still sold for an impressive amount of $3,575 US. The transaction was completed, having both parties exchange positive feedback making this the second highest confirmed price paid for the game. On October 24, 2012, the first truly complete game was listed for auction and eventually sold for $33,433.30.
