Scooter,
"Retro-gaming" has become increasingly poplar in recent years, and a ColecoVision in good working order with the "right" games can fetch a decent buck from certain collectors. I suggest you check out the Yahoo! Link Removed , I'm sure there is someone there who can help you to put a value on your system.
BTW, the Atari adapter was never "banned" as far as I know. Coleco reached a financial agreement to pay royalties to Atari shortly after the device was released.
Cheers!
Gary

Thanks for the info...gonna check that club out.
I was in retail when the ColecoVision was introduced...and my rep asked for the Atari adapters back when Coleco lost against Atari. Of course...I had "sold" every adapter in stock!

I'm not so sure about the banned thing either, but I can give you an idea what the stuff goes for. The system itself, if working properly and in good cosmetic shape should fetch $30-40. The Atari adapter 10-15. The games really depend on what titles you have. Commons are worth about $1, but some rarer titles go for over $100.

How "banned" could it be, since Coleco later came out with "Gemini", an Atari-compatible standalone system?

Coleco lost an infringemnet case to Atari over the adapter and it was recalled. The Gemini came about as a result of a licensing agreement between the 2.
