I miss digging through those sorts of places. ;_; I went to a similar place when I visited my sisters in Tennessee 15 years ago, I got a DOS Capcom 3-pack for like a buck. Man. ;_;

It's this right here. This changes the tone from "I got a good deal, yippee" to "can't wait to flip this shizz, cuz I'm cool like that."

Not a reseller, he runs a legitimate business. Also gives people a good amount on credit with trade-ins. Not $10 credit for a $400 game.

So his business is reselling games though. Does that not make him a reseller?

We are going far off topic here but..

I see it as reselling still he just has a physical store front. It's semantics but I view reselling and scalping (buying out new products to flip) differently. And yeah of course he is a real one, there is a reason I mail him stuff vs taking it anywhere here. If he wasn't an option I'd eBay more.

I never scalp, but I do re-sell. I think I run my re-selling operation pretty honestly.

just bought a lot for a great price. $20 bought me complete in original boxes: shogun, shogun warlord edition, roller coaster tycoon, corkscrew follies, combat simulator 2, operation flashpoint, and others

I also saw a rainbow six game in box, black and red cover. than in the box there were a bunch of jewel cases, and 2 controllers. He must've just unloaded his junk, but I don't think the jewels are the games that go in the boxes, as the controllers were extra

as always, going into quarantine mode for a few than I'll take a look more closely

he deleted the ad a little early, and I thought you couldn't get a picture, but out of that small thumbnail, I still got the picture. I guess you can see the size of the box, and it does seem bigger. Maybe it is just the jewel cases that go with the boxes, and manuals, inserts, etc in the boxes. We'll see, but I did see 2 controllers. Won't get my hopes up. Checked most of those boxed games you could get $25 - $30 for it after all fees, so a little more work for me, and some time, but I'm sure it was worth it.

Oh yeah, the picture:

Pickups from the flea market yesterday. I might have a mint SNES going up for trade/sale. Still debating.

Also, didn't realize I picked up two of the same game. Not the first time I've done this. Derp.

Took the day off work, hit up some thrift stores:

First store was having a 75% off media sale. Got all this for $3:

image

At the next store, someone must have closed out their flea market business, bins of movies and CDs were donated. Will have to take another look at the music - lots of classic rock I might be interested in.

image
CDs were $1 each.

image
image
DVDs were $2. These are all sealed. Not sure what to do with the Playboy DVD.

image
These were not sealed.

Went to another thrift store, got all of this plus a PS2 GH2 controller for about $45

Ah today was a bust.
Went to a local antique store and walked out with a few games, but they turned out to be more beat up than i thought, Tetris attack cib, but the box and manual are absolutely trashed(Somehow the manual had fused to the cardboard tray and was ripped anyways, at least the front of the box looks nice and it's not smashed), a bunch of wii games, including mario galaxy and Kart, but they are very trashy, probably don't even work, and a ps1/dc sports game for 30.

Ah well, at least i have this beaut to fall back on:

$1,800, Clockwork Knight cib for 45, and a cib copy of Spider-Man vs the Kingpin for 70, among others.

... that sounds a hell of a lot like water damage to me.

I'd inspect the inside of the box and the cart, and make sure neither of them have mold.

I can tell you it's absolutely NOT water damage. The box and cart look perfect otherwise. It's more like someone glued the manual to the tray, and two boxes together. There's bits of what looks like wario's woods stuck to the back

Also, not for sale.

Just checked the loose games thrown in, and saw a full jewel case of Full Throttle, and a disc only of American McGee's Alice. That's all I recognized from there. The Rainbow Six game is Covert Operations and not worth too much. Also had a bunch of other loose games like simlife, or some learning/encyclopedia ones.

Will probably take a break this weekend and start listing new things out on Monday. No more deals around my area, just browsed lol

got the whole lot for $20, so am glad the 2 other loose games in there make up for the price of it all.

This thread spurned my interest in seeking out some deals and I found an auction place and just landed my first win. I've got 27+ games that I won for $60 + fees and such incoming. Will update once they all arrive, but the lot is a mixed bag with 2 Atari games, 7 Genesis, a few PS1, 6 PS2, 5 PS3 and 4 PS4 titles. I'm a hair surprised I won it for $60 and hope that they're at least in good and largely complete conditions. I only have a picture of the spines of pretty much the whole lot to go off of. Only 1 Atari and 1 Gen title are w/o a box. I also see like 7 generic jewel cases so I'm not sure what's in them. This site deals with basically local auctions of estate style or just locally focused events. I nearly bought a broken Crisis Zone Arcade cabinet last week from there for like $30 but it was huge and I had no clue what was wrong with it.

Hit up a few yard sales, nothing much:

image
Each are brand new and $5.

Guy posted his yard sale on FBMP, his entire garage was *filled* with board games. I think he closed his Amazon store, he had boxes upon boxes still unopened filled with board games. I spoke to him and he mentioned people started lining up at 7am - I think the sale started around 8. Grabbed these for $30:

Met up with another guy on FBMP who was moving and selling his movies. Got all of this for $50:

Went to a moving sale Saturday, it had pictures of a SNES and VHS tapes in the posting but it was just the TV stand they were sitting on that was for sale..... It still turned out well! These people were just looking to move everything and find good homes, and almost all of the DVDs/CDs pictured were in a free pile. I grabbed the DVDs I was personally interested in and left the rest (huge box of Futuramas and more was greedily grabbed by one guy). Since I couldn't bare taking for free, I gave them $10 for this pile

I just finished Freaks and Geeks and so very good timing to pick up Undeclared! Tony Hawk came from a different sale, guying sell guitars and music equipment at/above retail.

I picked up a boxed Oculus Go at the thrift store today for $12. Only missing the charger cable. I have never used a VR headset so I wanted to try it out and test it. I don't have the app installed, but just the "Download App" message that came up was soooo cool!

Had a sweet score over the weekend. Thrift store I hadnt been to in a while and was heading that direction. Game racks were a disappointment but I got to the back of the store in the electronics and there I saw it. Paid cash and checked out with the quickness and was on my way. Also of note this is a Dol-001 with the digital video port and a memcard 251 you can just see peeking out the first pic.

I know it's personal, but if a person pays retail on amazon for a Shining Force 3, I'm less impressed than if they were to find it at a flea market. It just makes for a good story!

The VB games and manuals should get me back close to what I paid for the VB bundle. I mostly bought it to upgrade mine - there is no crack on the stand medallion, and the visor looks nicer. Will have to check my personal collection to see how the game manuals compare.

You sir, may be the only person who I genuinely believe paid what they say they do in this thread. People will claim they found a PS5, Series X and stack of games, all sealed, at a flea market for $14 total for clout or something. I can believe you did in fact pay $400 for that set of stuff. yes for the honesty. Good find btw

Not trying to talk crap, but most of the big bundles you find @porksta I wouldn't buy
for even half of what you spend. I'm a cheapo and not a reseller though. I just look at all the stuff you get and wonder how you make money off of it. This lot in particular is all loose and there aren't any bangers in there as far as I know.

A lot of times with games I just look them up at eStarland to see what they trade at before buying. I think the NES set trades in about $20 or so less than I paid, so even if I can't move it I'm not out a whole lot.

Went to a garage sale today run by two kids, roughly eight or nine years old. Their scale of pricing was really off--they wanted $75 for a "hundred-year-old" Wii system but $1 for CIB Skyward Sword. For $15, they sold me...
-Five Wii Remotes, four white and one black (some missing their backs)
-Four Wii Nunchuks, all white
-Two Wii Classic Controllers, both white
-Two Wii Motion Plus add-ons, both white
-One Wii Zapper
-Super Mario Galaxy (CIB)
-The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (CIB)
-Wii Play (CIB)
-Donkey Kong Country Returns and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, boxes and manuals only

I felt a little bad buying valuable stuff for dirt cheap from kids who didn't know the values, but they were the ones setting the prices--they could've researched each game's going rate. The two kids didn't seem to agree with each other on how much to charge, either. As I was there, a woman rode up and bought the rest of the game stack (mostly shovelware or cheap games I wouldn't know what to do with). Their items were very popular with the older crowd.

Seriously? A trade in shop will give you $400 for an NES and some pretty regular games?

I'd trade that in ASAP before they adjust their trade in offerings.

Oh no, sorry I was referring to the NES specifically. It trades in about what I paid for it. The NES and VB sets were two different lots, I just put them together as it was the same auction. I think I paid around $130 for the NES and $270 for the VB.

Yeah if you go out looking for stuff regularly, you can find some crazy deals. There is a large subset of the population that does not know or care at all about the second hand market for games, and is just trying to get rid of their stuff quickly.

Heck I feel like I don't even know the second hand market (or value should say) for some games. Found out today about Alien Chaos 3D. Whats the big deal with that game???

Pretty much. I've had deals before where I got more than what was out because I asked and the reply is like "oh well I've got x, y ,z too but I didn't put it out because I thought it wasn't worth enough/no one would want it".

All the game stuff I bought last time was listed as "untested". Which I would believe especially the Wii U because it looked like it was fished out of the trash (cleaned up fine and works though). The Wii U was also missing something needed to test it, I think the power supply but I had a very long weekend and already tested it so I don't remember for sure. They had some cheap PS3s too, but console only so I didn't want to take the gamble. With the Wii U the gamepad turned on so I figured that and the Wii motes could get me out of what I paid. Knowing who had the GBA/Pokemon Crystal (I basically buy stuff from her every year) I know that was very likely a trash grab. Crystal looks really nice, considering.

I missed on some Guitar Hero games, just assuming they were all worthless. Turns out there are definitely some with value (Metallica, Van Halen, Smash Hits). I'll pick them up if they are still there next time (reasonable chance tbh).

Almost everything here was from a couple of thrift shops. Forsaken 64 and Shadow The Hedgehog were eBay packages that arrived today.

Forsaken 64 box is a bit faded but really nice otherwise. Had some stickers on the front that were thankfully painless to remove.

I got a Sega Gear and four games for $15. Unfortunately when I went home to test the Game Gear it doesn't work. I did some research and saw that the capacitors on this system were crap and usually need to changed out all the time. If someone wants to buy or trade for it as a project lemme know.

Found five games (?) for the Sega Pico at Goodwill for $2 each. Looked everywhere for the console to no avail.

I honestly might have looked past them if the one on top wasn't of Tails.

Cool find man. Kinda reminds me of the N-gage. Just stuff you never see much.

I just sent all the ones I've been picking up for the past year and a half to a friend; Hopefully they'll show up in MAME in a couple of versions. ;)
