    Default My SNES Collection

    What is a fair price for this lot? I am thinking about putting it up on eBay at a buy it now. I need the cash for school. Everything is complete and for the most part in excellent condition.

    Thats worth a whole lot of pocket change. But I would recommend listing Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario Rpg, Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy III seperately. You'll get much more money for them that way and since you are doing this for money, thats your best bet. The other games would be better suited in a bundle along with the Snes, although you could also sell the Snes seperately too.

    And by seperately, I mean each game(and system) in it's own auction. That will help maximize your profits. As for how much all of this is worth, $500-$1,200 easily, though probably quite a bit more if sold like I instructed.

    Beautiful lot. I agree with 12P though, listing the games he said seperately would most likely increase the amount of money you make.

    Definitely sell individually, unless you want to get 20% less.

    Yeah, you literally have no filler titles in there, so you are best selling individually. If it was half sports games... yeah, maybe a lot would be best. But almost all, if not all, of those titles can stand on their own.

    Thanks for all the responses guys. I would love to sell this as a lot and realize I would get more if I broke it all up but don't want to put all the effort in. 20% though is significant and would be worth it. If I post it I will definitely put the link up here. I need to think it over a little more before I do that since this is my collection I have been building for years.

    It kinda seems to me like the cost of CIB games on eBay is down at the moment. I searched completed listing for Secret of Mana and was shocked to see them going for around $50. I seem to remember a time when mint CIB copies of Secret of Mana were going for as much as $100 and up.

    That lot's worth a good amount of change, since all the titles in there are pretty much A+ and in demand, especially the minty RPGs, your best bet is to sell them separately.
    <skaar> Sega is like Marilyn Monroe would be if she was still alive but at one point went completely bankrupt and started making skin flicks.

    I would try the local Craigslist and see if people are willing to buy them. That way you don't have to deal with shipping. If no one is interested, sell it to ebay.

    That's because its still around summer time, all game prices go down in the summer. Wait til Christmas to sell and you'll get a lot more.

    I think most games that have gotten a Wii VC release are seeing a decline in their prices. I bought a CIB Secret of Mana for $25 shipped a few months ago. The big money is going to come from Earthbound and Chrono Trigger, with Super Mario RPG trailing a little behind, and then the rest being $20~30 apiece. (Haven't been following the CIB price on FF3, but I'd imagine it's around $50 or so. The cart only is around $20.)

    This has been happening for the last year or so, even before VC releases on the Wii started receiving all these popular titles. In another thread earlier this year we were discussing how factory sealed games like Super Castlevania IV, Super Metroid, and Ninja Gaiden Trilogy no longer command what they did 2-3 years ago. That goes for many more factory sealed Snes and Genesis games, so the same applies to opened mint copies of those games as well. They have all been dropping in price compared to a few years ago.

    Except some games which have shot up in price, like Earthbound.

    True. That and Chrono Trigger(even sealed copies) still command the ultimate premium. If only I could find a sealed case of Chrono Trigger...

    Ha I put it up on craigslist for shits and giggles. Not really expecting any serious buyers but it's worth a shot.

    Hopefully that won't happen to Earthbound when it is finally released on the VC.


    Also I have had some interest on the boards here (the sought after titles almost exclusively) but I am looking for top dollar since I really don't want to sell this stuff. Will probably just wait till the Christmas season and throw them up at high BIN's. In the meantime I am going to find some stuff I can part with on the cheap and not have to regret it down the road. Maybe some of the easier to find titles from my SNES collection.

    I actually don't think Earthbound is going to end up being a VC release. Could be wrong, but I keep hearing it won't be.
