    Please provide seller's Ebay ID so we can avoid them like the plague!

    Two cool pick-ups today:

    -Ikaruga (GC, complete) $19.99 from GameStop
    -Tron 2-disc collector's edition (2002 print) $2.00 from Cash World Pawn

    Ikaruga was sent in from another GS about an hour away. Its been 2 years since a successful "request" from them; all I ever get is the usual "this can't be done" and "it is too expensive" all the way to "order it on eBay." From some odd reason, I never thought to ask one of the friendlier guys that enjoys talking to me when I stop by. He called and got it sent over without any hassles.
    In Heaven, everything is fine.

    Surprisingly, nobody bid on that junk. I was expecting to be sniped at the last minute, but nah...

    Everybody should check their local gamestop, I recently found a very nice ikaruga for the same price

    Around 8.25% over here


    Anyways, an eBay find arrived in the mail today. Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu for the NES. It was $9.99+$3.99 S&H, around $15 total. I consider this to be a find because this game is pretty uncommon, and it usually sells for more than that. It's in good shape and a great game. It's one of the few NES games that I've completely played through, and it's about time I got a copy.

    Also got a PS2 Network adapter this morning, in mint unused condition (still has the rubber plastic-y thing around the HDD plug) for $3. I usually collect them and sell them in lots of 4 on eBay. I've got 2 so far.
    Check my auctions here! I am in the business of finding off-beat things, including video game stuff!

    View my collection!

    Holy CRAP! Great haul! Lots of good stuff and plenty of common stuff you can flip and get some of your money back out of the cost. Nice.

    I haven't found ONE thing this whole month yet, but today I did provide some people with some deals as I'm having a Yard sale and decided to unload a few extra games. I sold some Pokemon blue, red, and crystal for $7 each, about 15 Xbox games at $2 each, 4 N64 games for $20 and a few others. Basically I've gotten my money back out of them but not making any profit.

    Man, I gotta get out and find some deals....

    I found a complete in box copy of Riddick Bowe Boxing for the SNES.

    Judging from the eBay auctions, I don't think it's really worth much.

    hit a jackpot garage sale today, it started at 8 and I was the second person in line. I was going to look at a laptop they had advertised, but the laptop was overpriced. However, they had tons of other stuff all cheap and really good. I got a tippmann 98 custom paintball gun with a nitrogen tank and a 20oz co2 tank for $11, also an upgraded barrel and a halo hopper on it. As far as gaming they had a psp for $20, and i got about 6 games and movies for $1 each with it. Then I bought a couple smartphones as well as an iphone with a cracked screen from them for cheap. They had 2 airsoft guns that were probably worth a few hundred for $10 each but another guy grabbed them before me. It was one of the best sales Ive been to in a while. They had a bmw and an audi in their driveway, and were just downsizing they said.

    Later at a church sale picked up a garmin III plus gps for $10 as well as a few cds and a nip tuck season 2 dvd for .50 each. Cant wait to see what tomorrow and sunday bring. The annual townwide sale I go to every year on the first sunday in june is happening.
    Autobots. Roll out.

    Are you in "good standing" with any of the employees at your local store? If so, they may call one of those in if you ask. That's how I got mine yesterday.
    In Heaven, everything is fine.

    Default Yardsales 6-4-10



    Castlevania (Complete)
    DuckTales (Boxed)

    $9


    Not really much (if any) of a deal here both missing the styrofoam blocks. Asked about games and this is some of what I saw out of a few games and I only bothered picking up these that I wanted complete for my collection, I have a manual for Ducktales. The girl selling these mentioned looking them up on a rarity list recently that was graded by letter that I'm guessing is the same one I'm thinking of. She didn't really know what was going on and thought she might have been shooting herself in the foot (I was told that DuckTales is kind of rare, wtf). She mentioned $5 at least a game, I tried to offer $10 for these and a boxed Roll 'n Rocker controller which was countered with $15. I almost just bought Castlevania for $5 but said I'd also take DuckTales if any better was done and took the offer of $9.

    Asteroids (PS1, Complete)
    Medal of Honor (PS1, Complete)

    .25

    Hoyle Casino (Dreamcast, Complete)
    Tomb Raider III (PS1, Disc Only)
    Rascal (PS1, No Manual)
    About 30 PC Games (Mostly Disc Only & Not Pictured)

    Free


    All of the free stuff was from a few free boxes filled with what was mostly bootleg PC games & programs but with some retail stuff mixed in. The PS1 games were brought out when I asked about old games and were a dime each but I told them I wasen't worried about a nickel since I grabbed some stuff out of the free box.

    I picked mine for $40 a while back that was in mint condition from my local GameStop and got a Buy2Get1 with some other games that made it worthwhile, so I'm not too concerned. I'm not much of a reseller anyhow.

    Freaking incredible. Around here on CL or Kijiji, anything older than an xbox or PS2 is so overpriced its insane. You got a steal there. I see a lot of fantastic deals coming outta California.
