I "stole" a legit copy from one of my friends for like $20 like 3 years ago, and he hasnt let me live it down since then.... I've had to buy his drinks every time we have gone out since.

Yeah, I do generally agree with you on this. I'm 10 games away from a complete collection, of which Tobias sells 3 or 4 of the ones I still need (depending on how you slice it), and, if I ever want a complete shelf, I'm probably going to need to get them from him, but I'm not there yet. For the record, TG is the only system that I would ever consider this for... I'm close-ish on a complete NES collection too, but I'm not going to go through the trouble of finding a bootleg copy of Stadium Events just to do it. (I'd maybe consider Nintendo World Championship, but only just to experience it on the system). Again, I can't bring myself to knowingly pay for any bootleg.

yeah, I think it's a mental justification where it's technically something you paid for than "stole" ... plus a manual to (never actually) flip through

As for shelf candy... While I have a love/hate relationship with my TG16/TGCD collection... the way the games look lined up on the shelf together falls squarely in the hate column. There is just so much inconsistency even though it looked like they tried to make it consistent.

All that being said, I just paid market for a Chase HQ that came with:
-custom 3D printed HuCard case by Aaron Nanto.
-custom spine label by Sparky.
-custom single-piece folded cover with instructions printed on the inner side by Sparky.
-brand new custom HuCard sleeve by Seymour Onion.

But I thought it was case and manual. This is a lesson for the kids ... always read the descriptions, even if you're bidding on your phones, on the subway, after a very long day at work

I'm not trying to start stuff ... I dont have the energy for it ... but I am told people go gaga over the packaging, which, after seeing, is admitted nice.

That being said, the possibility of picking up a nice looking Dynastic Hero and Bonk 3 SCD that I can play on my Duo-R is very, very tempting, because, I'm okay paying the equivalent of $50ish a pop for two games that, combined, would cost upwards of $2000, and which I will likely never own unless I hit the lotto, or you guys start way over paying on my auctions.

Again, dont want to start anything... there's just something comforting about know there is the option, but I've never pulled the trigger, and I can totally understand the other side of the coin -because they just very pretty, relatively expensive bootlegs.

Yeah - sometimes you have to hold an auction and sell like 150 things to afford one (or more realistically half of a) game
