    Default Possibly Selling Large MVS Collection

    I have a rather large MVS collection that I'm thinking about selling. I don't get to play with them much anymore and I already have a MAME cab with all the MVS game roms in it. Having a physical MVS collection seems redundant. However I do love the way they look in their shockboxes on my shelf so I'm not 100% sure I want to sell it. I'm not sure what to really ask.

    The MVS system is a two board model that has been 'Consolized' with a JROK RGB board and the latest Universe BIOS. It also comes with with two controllers (a pad and the classic controller) and a PS2 controller adapter. The console also has a cool blue LED light that can be turned off and on with a switch. Here's a picture (forgive the horrible quality), it's on the bottom shelf:


    All the MVS games are English labels with intact serial numbers (unless they were JPN only titles). I was really anal about the condition of the labels, so they're almost all in excellent shape. All titles also come with shockboxes and printed inserts:

    The following titles are kits. I'm not sure if they're all 100% complete, some might be missing a sticker set or two:

    Metal Slug 4
    Metal Slulg 5
    Samurai Shodown V
    King of Fighters 2000
    King of Fighters 2003
    Galaxy Fight
    Zupapa!
    SNK vs Capcom
    Super Dodgeball
    Flip Shot
    Pochi and Nyaa
    Rage of Dragons
    Shock Troopers 2nd Squad
    Sengoku 3


    I'd like to sell these as a set, but I know I can probably get more if I piecemeal them out. I might end up doing that if no one wants the 'Instant Collection'. Here's a picture that shows most of the games (sorry about the quality), but some are hidden off to the right behind the closet wall.

    Boner popped. That's an amazing display.

    If the prices were right I'd be interested in a few of them. If you can get a price list, let me know.

    Well going down the middle price of the Neo-Geo.com MVS price list, I came up with around $5,000 (which includes the extra shockboxes and the system with the controllers). I think the middle price range is fair because all of these are in great shape and have shockboxes. Of course with the complete kits the price might go up a bit, I need to look at what being complete does to the price of a cart.

    Considering you're getting 95 games and the system, that's very fair.

    It's good to get some feedback. I'm a bit out of the loop when it comes to MVS prices these days. The $5,000 is only a rough estimate, a minimum I guess. I didn't take into account the complete kits and the other little odds and ends I think I still have (instruction cards and whatnot). The mintness of the labels and the complete shockboxes with inserts may make the carts worth more, I really need to look into it. Of course there's always a bit of discount when buying a bulk lot. I think if someone were to buy the lot and sell the titles off individually they could easily turn a decent profit. I just don't have the patience.

    I used excel to do a 'real' average price and came up $5,700 (the actual range was $4,690 - $6,765). This include the value of the shockboxes, inserts, and the system with controllers (plus some extra misc. items).

    Of course the price is negotiable, but since everyone wanted a price range I thought I should post one.
