    Default Interest Check: Genesis Display Sale Case (Pic Inside)

    Does anyone remember those spinner Kmarts (other stores also?) that held Genesis Games?

    I believe I know what you are talking about but do not have a picture. Is it the rack with "pages" that you can turn back and forth which hold the games upright and allow you to see front and back without getting your dirty little hands on them?

    Exactly, it's like a "jewelry" store rack in a thrift shop but more useful because you can browse Gunstar Heroes/Streets of Rage/etc.

    Due to their being used for that purpose these are more commonly seen being used for used for handheld games, I think there was even having one being stocked in the DP store when I was there last night.

    The vertically set Genesis ones though, I think I've only ever seen them with Genesis games as far as game product goes. I'd think they were just generic display units places like KMart/Service Merchendise/etc. began using for that purpose though, I can't remember if there was any uniquely Sega related marquee or poster marketing to go with them.

    If we've both only seen them with Genesis games though, and in multiple stores then they probably were a Sega concoction or whoever Sega had doing their marketing.

    Actually, I seem to remember them having more than Genesis games in them Maybe it wasn't made for it, but I remember seeing one with SNES games in it. If you can get one for $10, go for it. What a novel way to display your collection.

    For 10 bucks you might as well buy it, and post pics too.

    Well, I ended up buying the thing today. However, the guy wanted $80 so I figured what the hell.

    This is what it looks like:

    Not bad! $80 seems steep, BUT they don't make these things anymore and demand is going up. Probably could sell it for a profit in fact. Was it a local sale?

    Yes, a video store is going out of business, so I really went ahead and got it. They wanted $100, but I got them down to $80. If it wasn't metal I could have probably got it cheaper.

    I was wondering if there was anyone near Augusta, Georgia intersted in this thing? I need to get rid of it as it takes space and I really don't have anything Sega related.

    Picture is in first post.

    Moved to buying and selling since this has turned into a quasi-sale topic

    Does the thing rotate around 360 degrees or only on 3 sides? Not that i'm interested since I live in New York but damn that thing would be so cool if it went all the way around.
