Buy Atari's history - for £75,000

Atari_sothebys It's a retro gamer's dream - but you'll have to be a rich one to bid for Atari's marketing archives, which are up for grabs at Sotheby's in New York, with an estimate of around $150k - $200k. That between £75k and £100k.

For that huge outlay, you'll get around 2,000 items of original material dating from 1981 - 1983 (when Atari was at its height, including manuscript memorandum, internal specification guidelines, original sketches, blue lines, mechanicals, proofs, colour separations (including acetates), and screen diagrams. The majority relates to games and consoles, but it does includes some early design and graphic work for game characters and components.

So in other words, everything you need to start your own vintage gaming empire. If you're interested, you need to register with Sotheby's. And perhaps have a lottery win before the auction date.
