Strange Track and Field Cartridge

That's funny. I was only aware of the 8-bit version. I had no idea until now that there was a 2600 version! :)

 

The 8-bit version is pretty rare, but not quite as rare as the 2600 version. 1984 wasn't a good time for getting games out the door.

Interesting. I wonder if they would've taken the existing Track and Field Controller and wired it for the 5200. Otherwise, the game would've killed even more 5200 joysticks.

 

Funny how this proto has been found but the [possibly mythical] 7800 version hasn't.

Probably through an adapter. They did that with the Apple II release.

At my local 2nd & Charles, they have the Track and Field cart for the 2600, loose for $6. They have the T-N-F controller on sale for $60, though.

Grab that cart, that's an amazing deal. The funny thing is that the controller is really common since it was also packaged with the Apple and C-64 versions of the game. I think Best was even selling them for $15 or so at one point.
