Have the prices for 2600 E.T. carts climbed over the years, or is these
buyers paying a premium to own a "Genuine landfill ATARI E.T. game,
complete with certificate of authenticity" etc.?

Thing is, the article mentions only a few hundred carts. Rumor had it that
many thousands of carts were dumped, and realistically, such an operation
would never have been worth the while to dispose of only a few hundred, or
maybe a couple thousand carts.

Volumes like that could easily be crushed & ground-up. No need to drag
equipment out to the middle of the desert, just to dump a few hundred
pounds of junk.
