    Default Nice Vectrex Find Today!

    i finally got back to contacting this guy that called me a couple weeks ago about a vectrex....
    seems he had found it at a local lawn sale and wanted to sell it..
    anyway.. i went to his house, and it turned out he had the system boxed (and in REALLY nice shape) and 12 games complete.. including at least a couple i didnt have (fortress of narzod/spinball)....
    i ended up striking a deal with him for $ 50.
    he was pretty happy considering that he bought all that stuff a couple weeks ago for only $ 15.....
    so now i have a really nice little vectrex trade box~!
    ive had at least 3 really amazing vectrex finds in the past year.....
    =)

    Hey, wanna trade a Vectrex for *looks in trade box* uhh...a bunch of common 2600 or Intv carts? I'll give you 20 Super Marios for something, anything?

    Nice deal though.

    Oh, if you do need some commons, my offer stands. (I'm guessing you don't though :P)

    4 Vectrex's??? I've only ever seen 2 in my life! One was at Cinciclassic last year (I think they had one there at least) and one at the Muncie, Indiana Children's Museum back in 1983. It's #2 on my dream list, right below a Colecovision...if I get those 2, I'll have all the classic systems I've ever wanted...

    Don't let this seem like I'm trying to pressure you, I'm not at all...honestly. Still, 4 Vectrex's, wow!!! :shock:

    I've had some nice Vectrex finds myself:
    My first Vectrex came with one of those store display stands (though it was missing the plastic top thing) and cost me $40.

    My second I found at a tag sale for 5$ with 9 games (all with overlays).

    My mother then found a box of Vectrex stuff with around 20 games (all with overlays, many with instructions, one complete) including the light pen and the 3 games for it for $5.
