For sale is a beautiful late Run-2 Magnavox Odyssey complete with the carrying case, rifle, and the extremely rare Apex "blue card" with the Apex-Magnavox manual. I picked this unit up about 8 or so years ago and it has worked perfectly ever since. Out of the many Odyssey's that I've owned, this one by far is the nicest and most reliable.
Other than a few minor scuffs, the system looks practically new. It is 100% complete (minus the tape roll) with all documentation and pieces.Everything is extremely clean and was well taken care of - the accessories are mint and unused. The controllers (which are from an earlier Run 1B set) are the nicest I've come across. The rubber cords not are cracked or brittle like the others I've owned. Included is a modified game cord and setup CD by the late Richard Sanford (Magnavox Odyssey Specialist) and original 9V power supply. The rifle (missing the box) is in decent working shape with some minor scuffing on the stock. Also included is an additional Volleyball game. Oddly enough, the game came with the 4 multicolored tokens from "Interplanetary Voyage", though I believe these may have just been misplaced at some point in time. As I've gone through many Odyssey sets over the years, I've ended up with a few extras of various accessories (pictured behind the system) that Im also including in this listing. They vary in condition and include an Odyssey manual, game cards 1-6, an Odyssey switch in the box, two unused large sticker sheets, a roulette board, a used football scoreboard (missing the tokens), a states map, Percepts manual (missing play cards), an Odyssey advertisement, and a complete set of 22 overlays in good condition (24 if including those for Percepts). As the overlays that came with the unit are immaculate, I refrained from ever taking them out of the case and would instead use the extra set whenever playing. All of the original overlays are present and rolled in the case (including those for the Shooting Gallery). The case itself has the usual cracking around the clips and hinge, though it's still very sturdy and quite useable. What makes this unit special is the inclusion of the super rare Apex "blue card" perhaps the first homebrew ever for a game system? This card also comes with an Apex-Magnavox Manual. Up until recently, no other copies of these manuals were known to exist, most likely making it rarer than the card itself. It is essentially a photocopy of the Odisea Manual, the Mexican export of the Odyssey.
It's worth noting that this specific card is more of a translucent turquoise than it is solid blue, making it even rarer than the two other variants of the Apex blue card that you can find online. With regards to the blue card, I've only seen two others like it in my 10+ years of collecting and this is the only example I know of in the states. When Magnavox wound down production in mid-late'75. How many more blue cards are out there? It is complete with the sleeve, instruction sheets, and manual.The sleeve has a few indentations and the traces on one side of the card are imprinted onto one of the instruction sheets from years of sitting. Also included are six plastic sleeves used for protecting the game cards.
These appear to be OEM, though I've never seen them before. The unpunched Instrument Inspection Card is also another oddity as I've also never found another like it. As far as the Original Odyssey goes, it's not often that you see one in such good condition (let alone working) with the Apex blue card. Unlike many other later units, this one shows no signs of yellowing and is extremely clean inside and out.
