As much as someone is willing to pay for it.

Depends on the model. If it's a Four Switch Woodgrain console, an Atari 2600 Jr, or a "Darth Vader", they're worth 20-35 dollars. A Heavy Sixer is probably worth upwards of 60, whereas a Light Sixer will fetch 40-50. This is the Four Switch Woody:  Darth Vader:  Atari 2600 Jr:  Light Sixer:  Heavy Sixer:  In any case, 15 bucks is a good deal as long as it comes with all the cables you need.

You can get them ebaysably (tell me somone else gets that) from about $35-$100 depending on the models, which someone handsomly put in picture form for you above.

I bought the Atari 2600 Jr. with all the hook-ups, two joysticks, the twin paddle controllers, a 9-digit pad controller, and like 30 games. And that cost me $50 all together, plus the guy threw in an official Atari Video Game Organizer with it. I hate the stupid rainbow thing on it, but other than that it's not a bad looking system.

They're $25 at my local game store but they fly off the shelves. Last time I went in they had none.
