    Default CIB Gameboy Games

    Picked these up not too long ago, and they are wasted on me. Thinking of selling or trading them, and wondering what they might be worth. All are in excellent condition all around, complete with original inserts, trays, manuals, and I think they all even have their baggies. I don't follow GB stuff, and don't seem to see boxed examples on eBay (or anywhere else) for reference.

    Mortal Kombat
    Super R.C. Pro-Am
    Kid Icarus
    Tetris
    Tetris 2

    I had this picture handy from when this was a find, so for what it is worth:

    final bump. If I can't get an estimate, or possibly a good offer, I guess I'll roll the dice on ebay or CTCW.

    I'd say you're looking at $15 for each of the CIB gameboy games, with Kid Icarus at about $30. I'd be interested in the Kid Icarus and RC pro am if you're selling or trading.

    I just saw this completed auction on eBay. Anyone want to comment? Is this just nutty eBay, or do the 3 different bidders give it some reliability? I've heard that GameBoy collecting has really ramped up, so is this a product of that trend?

    *Shrug* I personally think that is overkill...mainly cause it is not sealed

    But what do I know

    WOW!

    To think, I was going to place a bid! O_o

    People on Ebay are just plain nuts...or desperate. I know I fell victim to said desperation a few times, but thankfully managed to regain my grip on reality. I recall a copy of Montezuma's Revenge for SMS fetched $75 once!!!!!!!!

    EDIT: Found out that the nut who placed such a high bid also did the same with a few other games...can't wait for him to leave feedback so I can show him the things I have for sale! Maybe I can get a few thousands from the guy

    I would have said $10 each except for Tetris which would be higher(as complete copies are hard to find), but I guess I'm not with current pricing after seeing that completed auction. I know that loose games aren't worth near that much.

    They could have been thinking that they were bidding on all 4 games. Would make some sense especially with Metroid II in the picture.

    Yeah, that's possible. I try never to underestimate peoples' stupidity, but I really have a hard time believing 3 different people didn't read the auction that they bid ~$70 on. It is clearly stated that it is for 1 game only.

    I guess we'll find out, as these games are going on eBay later this evening!

    If it's something of interest and requires some reading to understand what exactly it is it's bound to attract a few people who will get carried away and over bid without carefully reading and understanding the auction if it's not as simple as could possibly be. I saw somebody selling R.C. Pro-Am 2 but when you would read the description the seller said that the board inside wasen't R.C. Pro-Am 2 but something else and he couldn't remember what it was (probably the first game). This didn't stop buyers from coming in and bidding up the game to about $25 shipped.

    I was selling the soundtrack & making of disc for Lunar SSSC on eBay with the case missing the back part & the insert for the back and I still had to list it 3 or 4 times before I had somebody that paid and didn't complain that they though they were getting the actual game. The description under the tile said some like "READ DESCRIPTION!! Making of & Soundtrack ONLY" and I went into great detail much like this post about what they were getting

    In short it's not hard for me to picture a few buyers seeing that picture (especially with a complete Metroid II in the mix) and getting carried away and bidding it up high.

    I originally thought the selling price wasn't bad for everything included, but then I read that only one game was included. I guess it's possible that nobody really read it, it's happened before. Lots of people are stupid.

    Just to add to the puzzle, Metroid II also sold for about 70 something using the same picture/format from that seller. Blades of Steel, also in the picture and listed, didn't get any bids with a starting price of 2.95. The TMNT in the picture does not appear to have been listed at the same time.

    I did list several of mine tonight if you want to bid and/or follow along! Here are my current eBay auctions.

    That KI should do very well. It looks absolutely pristine.

    And you might get $15-$20 for that Pokemon Yellow. At least every loose copy I ever sold went for somewhere around there.

    I guess maybe that previous CIB Kid Icarus auction was a fluke, since mine is currently at 1.04 with less than a day left! Still a lot of time, I know, but I've never seen one of my auctions jump that much in the last day before.

    Just bid on a couple of yours actually. I'm sure I'll be sniped at the last minute.

    I am watching the Kid Icarus out of curiosity. I had planed to bid on it, but the $33 dollars shipping to Canada is the deal breaker for me. Good luck with the auction, I hope the other auction wasn't a fluke

    eBay is so pissing me off right now. Their shipping calculator is screwed up and not showing the Priority Mail International option when you have your postal code entered in. Right now it only shows you the Express option. For Priority, the cost to Canada would be $15.65, and that includes insurance.
