    My jaw is on the floor. That is an absolutely amazing haul. And were there any loose games at all, or were every single one boxed?

    Ya, I still had to fork out some cash for it but should still get around $2000+ for everything if I play my cards right - and that is far less than the price guides say considerably. I am keeping some of the Colecovision stuff, but much of it will be up for auction so keep your eyes peeled.

    I will be doing a video showing the unboxing of the NES stuff as later today And the Tank Command Atari 7800 is listed now.

    Amazing find. So what's the backstory on this haul? Was the seller another collector who knew what they had? Or was it just someone who wanted to get rid of all their 'old games'? And what did the CL post say? There must have been people still calling about it when you went to pick it up.

    I asked him what he wanted for it all and he said $800. I gave him what he wanted and he was very happy. I asked him how he had all this stuff and he indicated he dad owned a store back in Jersey or somewhere back east. This stuff was in storage out there and then his dad emptied the storage unit and shipped this stuff to him. I think it was a combination of stuff from their store and also stuff he had growing up - his dad being in the business may explain the craploads of games he had - because I didn't know any of my friends who had this much stuff back in the day.

    He really didn't know what he had and acted like, "cool, people actually collect this stuff".

    So it was a deal that worked out for both of us. I called him in the early evening and it had meen listed most of the day. It was available when I called and didn't waste any time getting my butt over there

    The Nintendo video will be up soon. Not sure there is to much interesting there or not. I was hoping it would have tons of rare stuff like on the Colecovision ,but I don't think so. But still over 130 boxed nes games all in great CIB condition for the most part.

    It will start getting listed shortly.

    I am going to start a thread in the auctions area that you will all want to stay on top of as I will keep updating it through the next couple weeks with all sorts of stuff from this lot.

    On ChaseTheChuckwagon.com, of course

    Definitely feels like a collector that had a fire sale on the stuff, not unlike I did a few years ago. I let some things go way under the going rate (I had more desirable things, nothing really rare) just to get rid of it all in one fell swoop. I'd be curious if it was just some person who had the stuff for whatever reason though...

    Looking forward to the NES unboxing.
