    If Madden 93s are going for 30 complete and mint like that, it sounds like a great price to me. I've not seen them that cheap in the past, but I also haven't looked in several years. Maybe its not as hard to find these days. I've seen one at games + in Mesa, but it was all dirty and they wanted like 25 bucks for it.

    Not Madden 93, Madden 93 Championship Edition. The normal version is worthless. :P

    Not gaming related, but cool finds yesterday. Got one of those Radio Shack electronics learning lab kits, in box with manuals and a bunch of wires and components. Also a late Polaroid 600 instant camera, in a bag with one sealed pack of film. 3.99 each. I have always been a sucker for Polaroid cameras, I ended up with a hand-me-down as a kid and took a ton of pictures.

    I made a very interesting trip to the Sanford Flea Market today (largest flea market in America! woo!).

    I found out after travelling to Play-N-Trade that one of the local collectors/resellers/scalpers is making deals with the local store owners to buy all of the rare stock that comes in. He runs his own storefront at the flea market as well and makes his mother run the store. She has to call him for prices before selling anything! I could stand it if he was a decent guy, but he makes a complete ass out of himself every time he opens his mouth.

    This means that I can only find good items at places that refuse to deal with him. Fortunately, a fellow collector that runs a store in the flea market dislikes him with a passion and forces him to pay marked up prices for items. The scalper decided to open a storefront right across the wall from him to put him in direct competition and put some pressure on him...

    Hurray for drama! In any case, I stopped by the "good" store today to pick up a copy of Fighters Megamix for Baloo. I found much more than that today though, since I decided to save some money for this trip.

    From Cybertron Video Games (thanks Gus!):

    Samurai Shodown (R3) (Disc only) - $4.50

    Remote Controlled "Mario" Mario Kart toy - $7.50 (missing shell and banana... )

    EDIT EDIT: If anyone reading this knows of someone selling Battlesphere Gold for Atari Jaguar, let me know. It's the last game the store owner needs for his Jaguar collection.

    That's a bit of a high price for Super Mario RPG! Good price on the Saturn stuff though.

    $50 is a bit high for a CIB Super Mario RPG? Lowest active listing I saw was $60, and I saw it being sold for $80 last year.

    Yeah, I thought so port. I own a loose cart already from when I was a kid (purchased from Funcoland along with Super Metroid), so this one is going in the collection.

    Today, for $8:

    Shark Attack (2600)
    George Foreman's KO Boxing (SNES)
    Macross: Scrambled Valkyrie (Super Famicom)

    Macross was really surprising, and is also a very good game. Oddly enough, it has the indentations in the bottom for an American SNES...

    I also got a PIII power supply for my SuperGun project.

    I got:
    Goldeneye, Super Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Bomberman 64 and Aerofighters Assault for the N64. $15 total. They're all going to eBay.

    I also found a new and sealed copy of Fire Hawk (sequel to Thexder on DOS) for $5. It was just lying there on a desk filled with VHS tapes... o.O

    Plus, bought a copy of Lynyrd Skynyrd: The Millenium Collection (CD) for $1.50 and a Metallica Tribute album from Cleopatra Records (a goth / techno label) for another $1.50, but the tribute album is unrippable so it's going to the trash. Or given away. Not sure yet.

    After that I went to the Big!Lots that's closing down and bought 20 bubble mailers for $7.40 (50% off) and two rolls of bubble wrap for $1.10 each. And I was going to buy more, but I ran out of money. :P

    ---

    Passed on:
    Two first party PS1 memory cards for $10. That booth owner is really ramping up the prices.

    Office 2003 Student Teacher Edition - I was giddy when I found it but the disc was gone. The booth owner said that it DID have a disk so someone must've stolen it to test a CD deck. Dammit.

    A bunch of thrifting today for a friend and I. He got an NES Zapper for $2 (gray version), and a green Xbox S Controller for $6 that needs the cord worked on.

    I got an N64 and one controller for $15, then two more controllers and a memory card for it for $6 at the third place. The second place turned up a loose 007 Goldeneye for it for $2.

    Picked up a complete copy of Lemmings for the Genesis for $1.99. I went to 4 different thrift stores today and this was all I could find.

    Another trip to the thrift store today.

    Picked up:

    Alien Legacy 4 DVD set. Every disc is flawless with mint, thick booklets inside - $9.99
    Left 4 Dead 2 for PC, sealed - $9.99
    Twisted Metal longbox for PSX complete - $3.24

    and then I hit Burlington Coat factory to check out their discount games at the checkout, and bought:

    It's Mr. Pants for Game Boy Advance X 2 - $4.99 each
    Ace Combat Advance for Game Boy Advance $4.99

    Reselling Left 4 Dead 2 should cover the cost of everything else. However, it looks like L4D2 might have been a reseal....
