    Default May 2010 Finds

    I did garage sales today. There was a big community sale going on in a fancy-schmancy neighborhood.

    Sadly, I only got a small bag of things:

    Lord of the Rings: Two Towers, Metroid Fusion, Nintendo DS, Star Wars: Apprentice of the Force, Madden 2004, Cabela's Big Game Hunter (2005 ed.), Tekken Advance, Super Mario Advance 4: SMB 3, Dark Arena, Turok Evolution, and Fire Emblem.

    That may sound like a sweet pickup but everything is manual only :P. Apparently someone got all those games and a DS before me and left the papers, and the people running the sale just gave them to me for free.

    In the bag was also a Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt demo, which is cool.

    all the instructions are FS/FT, cheap.

    btw, not exactly video game finds but I did find 2 Hohner melodicas (no. 26 and 27) for
    $1 a piece. Score!


    A melodica looks like this. You blow in it like a whistle and play it like a piano. It sounds like an accordion. The 2 I got are vintage and made of metal and plastic. They are a bit more "space age" looking than this one.

    I went yard saling as well and came away with almost nothing gaming related. I picked up a baggie of VideoNow disks for $.50 and a ton of AD&D 1st and 2nd edition PC software for $.50 per disk ($10 total).

    I passed up a couple of Publishing software suites because they looked too old to be worthwhile. I was tempted to ask Kitsune if they were worth something

    Genesis with games. Some notables include Castlevania Bloodlines (hard case), Sorcerers Kingdom, and Weaponlord. Other good stuff too. Also included three controllers and a few power supplies, also some NES manuals. Two N64 games as well including Bust a Move 2. Found at a local flea market for $2.00.

    hit 2 neighborhood sales, overall very crappy stuff, but did grab a polaroid sx-70 land camera in mint condition at the first house I stopped at. Also got an indigo game boy advance with pokemon yellow for $2. There were some things i passed on at one house that i later went back for but it was all sold. That stuff being 2 sirius radio receivers, a new in box mio gps, and a leapster handheld system with about 6 or 7 cartridges. The prices were a little more than I wanted to spend, but after I realized that it was all worth it, it was all sold. Once again punishing me for not trusting my instincts. My dad wanted a gps too, I wish I would of grabbed it. Overall I cant complain though, the land camera was an insane find.

    $20 for all that. Binder is filled with Pokemon cards. GBC is in amazingly mint condition.


    All those manuals were 10 cents total.


    $1 total for the GC power cable and NES RF cable.


    Skate and Ridge Racer 6 were $1.50 apiece.


    Another binder full of Pokemon cards for $1.


    $4 + tax


    $2. Looks interesting.

    Because you copied the link to the page they're on, and not to the images themselves. Right click the picture and click "Copy Image Address", then paste that.

    Default Yardsales 5-1-10



    A Nightmare On Elm Street
    Mighty Final Fight
    Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Boxed)

    $12

    One of the first sales I hit today, asked about video games and the guy brought out an NES with I'd guess close to 25 games, all of it looked fairly dirty from sitting in the basement he brought it up from. Wanted $70 (or may $75 for everything) I offered $35 for the heck of it and was declined so I asked and the best he said he would do was $60. Was willing to do $4 a game so I picked out these 4 and said I was thinking more like $2 per a game and we meet in the middle. I was also looking at Mad Max & Predator since I don't have them in my personal collection but when the guy said $4 I decided it best just to put them back.

    N64 With (All 1st Party) Rumble Pack, Gray Controller, Black Controller & Hookups (not shown)

    Super Mario 64
    StarFox 64
    Star Wars Episode I Racer
    Superman 64

    $10

    This sale advertised an N64 with 5 games on Craigslist. I made it one of my first stops but wasen't really worried about missing it so I didn't make it my very first stop. No price I offered $5 and was countered with $10.

    Centipede (PS1, Complete) - $1

    Was in with some PS2 games in a box marked $5 each but had no problem with my offer of a buck since it was a Playstation 1 game.

    Sudeki (Complete) - $1 IAP

    Resident Evil 3 Nemesis (PS1 Disk Only) - $2
    Resident Evil 2 Disc 1 Leon (PS1 Disk Only) - $1

    Unadvertised sale, little kids selling very little but was mostly PS1 & 2 games so I didn't really try and haggle but the games were cheaper then usual ($2 PS2 games).

    Devil May Cry 3 Code: 2 Vergil Paperback Comic Book - .50 (IAP $1)

    Some pictures of my finds from this morning. Any ideas on the value of the Sega Pocket Arcade? The only ones on Ebay are for other games and are listed for $45-65. Thanks for all of the help with the pics.
