    Default What is the Rarest Item You Have Found in the Wild?

    I'm sure that thsi has been talked about before, but I was just reading some others' "Finds of the Year" and thought that everyone could just throw their great, rare (either a personal rarity -- a game that you have been looking for for ages, or a book-rarity -- one that is generally accepted to be rare) finds in the wild here.

    Personally, I have had a shitty year for rare finds, and the only thing that can fit into this categary for me is PSX Terry Pratchett's Discworld (R5) which I have not been able to find anywhere (and I wanted it) and is one of the rarer items in my collection (my collection is filled with commons mainly...)

    WHAT ABOUT YOUS?

    I have found several unique items here in the Seattle. The most facinating being the 2 Intellvision Computers (Original Master Components) I found along with all the Software (shrinkwrapped) for them. A coupel of protos have been unearthed here as well. This area used to be the area to shop... not anymore :(

    Damn I really want a complete zapper gun, actually. I also want a complete NES advantage if anyone wants to sell either of those items...

    Anyways, in the last month, I have found a complete copy of Namco Ms. Pac-Man for NES which is an R7, and a copy of Qix for NES (loose) which is also an R7. Several years ago I got a complete copy of Tengen Tetris for NES for about $4 from a mom and pop used game store. Thats an R6. I have pretty good luck with thrift stores around here though due to little or no competition.

    My rarest find was an Atari XE Bristles and Flip and Flop (both R9) in a Value Village for .40 each.

    My second best was a Odyssey 2 Power Lords (R8) for .50 at a local Thrift.

    When I first started collecting 7 years ago, I found a boxed Peek-A-Boo Poker and Hot Slots at a local video store for $5.95 each. I still have them too.

    Probably the best thing I've found this year is a complete mint copy of Miner 2049er for the Atari 2600 at an estate auction. Not terribly rare, but I guess it's hard to come by in complete form.
    3,582 games and counting! Pics of tons of stuff!

    Going by the DP rarity guide:

    Arcade Smash Hits (SMS) - boxed, free (R5)
    Guilty Gear (PSX) - complete, $12.00 AU (R7)
    Outrun 2019 (SMD) - boxed, $6.00 AU (R5)
    World Champ (NES) - cart. only, $2.00 AU (R5)

    I would also consider Guilty Gear X (PS2) a rarity and I'd like to see what rarity ranking DP considers it to be (I picked this up complete for $30 AU)

    I also have Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (DC) which is an R6, but I paid dearly for that one ($50 AU).

    I am STILL kicking myself in the ass when it comes to this game... I had this thing complete (got it at a video store a while back before I was really into gaming) and then tried to play it, hated it witha passion (I dont really like the FMV-ish games) and then threw it up on eBay and sold it for some piddly amount (just got back what little I paid for it) and now that I realize its true value, I repeatedly kick myself in the ass.....
