    boxed NES sets go for different prices depending on the set.

    control deck set...... 40 dollars
    Challenge set ....... 45 - 60 dollars
    action set ........ 50 - 60 dollars
    power set ....... 60 - 80 dollars
    deluxe set ...... 70 - 110 dollars
    I have not seen that many sport sets on ebay


    Of course those are all ebay prices I have seen them go up and down alot.
    But that is a rough estimate for you.
    Thanks for the info. I love your avitar!
    Condoleezza Rice is nice, but I prefer A Roni!

    Well, the rarest thing I actually bought was a Genesis Action 52, which I sold to Mr. Joe DP. Hope you enjoyed that, btw. :P

    The rarest thing I did NOT buy was potentially a copy of the Starfox Competition cart. It was in a dark corner of a case at GameStop and I just shrugged it off, but the label definitely was NOT the usual one... Wow, I really hope it wasn't the weekend cart. Damn.
    We can rebuild him. We have the technology.

    2 weeks ago at a garage sale I found Custer's Revenge and Bachalor party CIB. Those were the only 2 video games there. No combat even. Paid 5 bucks for the 2. It was a cool find.

    Also found Mr. Do's Castle for the 2600 at a Choc for 95 cents.

    The only rare game I've found in the wild is Tooth Protectors for the 2600. I procured this game with help from Alan Davis from this site.

    Default Rare finds

    [my first DP post]

    I've had a few rare finds recently. I found a box at the local flea market that had Crazy Climber and Dice Puzzle for the Atari 2600 in it that I got for $5.

    I got a Colecovision with Word Feud (R7) Sir Lancelot (R6) and Quest For Quintana Roo as well as a bunch of others for $30 at a local garage sale.

    Today I got Dragon Force for Sega Saturn at the local thrift store for 3.99.

    And a few months ago, my sister got Mario's Cement factory /w box at a garage sale for $2. She sold it for 120 bucks on ebay.

    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?
    Shoot..I didn't know PSX Terry Pratchett's Discworld was a R5

    I have one sitting on thelf that came with a bunch of other PSX games..Large Box version..
    I don't know if i came in a DC case ..that's why I added that.




    What is the rarest item you have found in the wild?

    I'd say ...
    My Virtual Boy Display Unit..
    Two Sealed Nintendo Stack Ups sets.
    Bath Bubble Babes.... sealed but I opened it to be sure of it's contents.

    Plus maybe a few other thngs I don't know are that rare in the piles of gaming stuff I own..

    Also been finding a ton of sought after SNES games and some really good psx games I just have not looked up rarity levels yet.

    I have two used copies of that game and both were in complete shit states. It seems i can never find that game with a manual to go with it.

    Umm as for games i don't know i got a lot of semi (4-6 games) rare games so i'd say.

    Some complete nes games i found

    a complete/mint lunar sss for 5 bucks

    and maybe the spletterhouse games.

    Music Machine cart for the 2600. Picked it up at a flea market for 25 cents. Label has small tear, but definetely my rarest find in the wild.

    I think my best would only be an R5. Intelligent Qube for the PS1. Found at EBgames in a blister pack with Coolboarders 3and a memory card for $20. Not a super deal but I had been looking for the game for months and was afraid I was going to end up spending $60 or more on eBay to get it.

    My friends brother found Joshua for Genesis in the snow while doing his paper-route one day, which I guess really means "in the wild". But that was given to me, so I guess it doesn't count.

    Link: The many Faces of Evil $.75(why? cause the Goodwill guy said all Playstaton games were $.75)
    Power Joy cart $2.50
    Magic Carpet PSX $7.00

    I just found Silverload (PS1, long box version) complete last week at EB for $1.79. It's an R7.
    Currently catching up on PSN, WiiWare, Wii U E-Shop and Xbox Live Arcade exclusives I missed.

    STOP! Its HammerTime!
