This is from a pawn shop close to my house. They've been getting painfully good at pricing their games fairly (looking up values online, etc). If you look at the price tag it says "Hero Fighters" -- my theory is they couldn't read the title accurately, did a search for "Hero Fighters" and came up empty-handed so they just decided to throw on a random middle-of-the-road price. Bad typography FTW. :)

The store was busy when I found this; they keep their games inside a locked glass case and you need to grab an employee to open it. I guarded this thing like a hawk until an employee walked by. Haha.

Hoping some rubbing alcohol will take care of that marker; labels and cart are fantastic otherwise.

Few years ago a local pawn store called Record Head had that game for ~$75. I put it on hold, when I went to pick it up / buy it, they said they listed it on Ebay and sold it for over $350. My fault, but still a douche move.

Record Head is a craphole anyway. 4 out of the 5 times I've been there it's smelled like someone took a dump.

Prices, on games anyway, are usually right on with Ebay prices, not a $1 less. I did buy Chew Man Fu (TG16) CIC, there for $35, which is what it was going for...back in 2012/2013, and now it's maybe double? But still...worth checking out every now and then just to see the items up close.

Thanks! You know what the craziest thing is? The price tag has the date the game came in (01/14, the previous day). Meaning it sat out there for at least a day. You have to wonder how many people passed through and saw it but didn't know the value.

I popped it in the SNES last night and got to the fifth level -- I was on the easiest difficulty but damn it gets hard. Super fun though.

Used some rubbing alcohol on the marker this morning and it's working quite well -- got about 90% of it off, just some very small remnants left. I'll keep scrubbing.

picked up this on saturday

was the first one there, opened @7am the game stuff was inside of a big bin asked how much for all of it they said $20, did not bargin becuase i knew it was a great price

some items i forgot to include in the vieo was n64 expansion pak, lemumings ps1, bloody roar 2,

the people doing the sale bought the house from an auction, i asked if they had anymore games, thats when they told me about how they got the house. I think they just wanted to move the items fast thats why they sold it to me for cheap, most of the items in the garage sale was very cheap, bought more items from there will probaly do a seperate video on those

I'm starting to find loose Schleich toys at Goodwill for $0.99 each. These are highly detailed, overpriced toy figures. Not really action figures since their joints don't move. Major toy stores usually have a rack of these and charge $6 each for the small and higher for the bigger. They're usually safari animals but I've seen some bigger specialty ones too. The bunch I picked up should be a decent resale.

Found Alice for the PC in jewel case for $1 and a newer model 360 with all the cords and a Kinect for $10 last night at the swap meet.

Today saw a yard sale down the street from my house and went over, got a Genesis console only for $1 and a big box of Pokemon and Digimon cards for $1. They said they have some Xbox One games and controllers they have to dig out so I'm going back there in an hour.

I need to stop buying all these systems, they just start piling up when I don't have all the right cords to test / sell them but I can't resist if they're cheap. I have a few genesis and 360 already, and 10+ PS2s and Wiis.

Yeah, those handhelds were about enough for floppies, but I doubt they're gonna get the job done for a full drive, not properly at least.

Plus by now those are old as hell, too. You think about a good drill kit?

I think you paid a little too much, but that is definitely a cool find man! Especially out in the wild.

Yeah, I thought so too. But then again, my store, 2nd & Charles, is hit-and-miss with the prices. That's around what Ebay wants and considering that's my most decent find (even most of my local thrift stores are crap) I can't complain. Helps sharpen my mind when it's fried after working on my computer too much.

For minor that would be fine. I've been researching discount data destruction that could also pass medical HIPAA code. So I was thinking drive dismantling, wiping platters with a degausser, recycling components. Taking photos and serials for insurance purposes and collecting the interface boards for scrap.

Yeah, I could talk to my Dad about what he does regarding drives with patient records on them but I'm sure he just hands them to a certified recycler who takes care of that stuff for a fee or for scavenging rights on everything but the nonvolatile media, with their quantities it probably makes sense to do it that way. But I'm assuming you're looking to be the guy people call for this stuff. raspberry
SirConnery
GameTZ Subscriber 1000 Trade Quintuple Gold Good Trader

What I usually do when working is pull drive and hand back to client to put in their safe. With medical offices that have let's say 100 drives it's not feasible. Especially since I'm reading that HIPAA often requires onsite verifiable data destruction. So I'm checking to see if I can create a mobile destruction setup and undercut my competition. Then see if I can repurpose equipment from another field to get that cost down.

LOL! I've never been a shooter guy, or a big SNES collector for that matter. I played it for about an hour and got my fill (i.e. got my ass kicked and quit out of frustration). Plus it scares me to hang onto games worth that much. I'd much rather use that money towards games I'm definitely going to play. :)

And what do you mean "for a song"? Hahaha.

Well, getting a 36-to-1 return definitely means a song; pretty much any business would kill for that kind of return. I may have also gotten my copy for a song, but mine stays in my collection as a good luck charm.

Ah thanks for the explanation; never heard of that phrase before.

Haha believe me it was tempting to hang onto it and show it off to my collector buddies, but I'm more of a "good games I plan to play" collector instead of a "rare and sealed games" collector. I would never play Aero; just not my type of game.

It's such a random assortment, and there aren't any Pokemons, so I wouldn't see a need to question authenticity. I also wouldn't think that Yoshi cart could be easily faked.

I think Yoshi is particularlly hard to fake, since there is a gyroscope in the top part of the system. I can't see any bootleggers going to those lengths to recreate that to sell cheap.

No, more likely they'd print the shell and ignore the guts. Doom/Doom 2 on GBA were pirated heavily (FOR SOME FUDGING REASON) but didn't save properly. Just because stuff has special internals doesn't necessarily mean the guys making bootleg carts CARE about the parts, they're just looking to cash in.

But that shape's so weird it's very unlikely they'd even go for it. Unless it went for tons of money.

I picked up the Final Fantasy XIII 360 console. Box, all cords, and HDD included. No controller or game oddly enough. There was a 360 white wireless adapter and a base to a Wii stand. Paid about $64.

Touche, that is a valid point.

I dont think Topsy Turvy has ever been really valuable, but it was def one of the more unique pieces of software, because it was one of the few that had hardware built into it. It's no Boktai ... but still pretty cool.

Tip them under a bright light on an angle and see if there's a stock number imprinted in the labels.

I picked up Super Mario History promo soundtrack (sealed new red box) for $2.99.

It's available.
