Im new to CAG but old to deal finding, game hunting, and gaming in general. Anyway, I noticed that while there is a yard sale finds thread and a craigslist find thread, we don't have an ebay finds thread! I double checked in the search as well.

So I figured may as well! So go ahead and post if you've bought a hard to find game, snagged a great deal, or won an exciting bidding war! Non-game auction victories can be posted here as well!

I'll start it out. Pics:

Pokemon Box was a little pricey for my taste for a used game ($57.83 shipped, although that is still fairly cheap for this game...gotta love 3 AM ending auctions!). I got a nice deal on NCAA Basketball 2k3. I was lucky enough to find that copy available as a BuyItNow for $20.00 ($24.00 shipped).

Also note: I think it was .83 for the cents for Pokemon Box's price. I sometimes forget how much cents the price included, lol.

Yeah, those are definitely two of the rarest Gamecube games.. the Pokemon Box technically wasn't a retail release but is still extremely hard to find.. NCAA 2K3 is the rarest game on the Gamecube.

My best find was the Parasite Eve millenium collection. I originally found it on eBay but ended up purchasing it from dv8mad, I think. Great guy. Anyway, the Millenium Collection comes with an import copy of PE2 and a glass bust of Aya Brea. The Squaresoft Millenium collection is rare by itself, but this one is one of the rarest of the collection. IF you can find it listed on eBay, it'll generally fall in the $150-$175 range. I don't think mine was complete, sadly, because I don't remember a trading card being in mine.

Bought a Dragon Age CE for PS3 for 34 shipped. There's a bit of damage on the sleeve. Got lucky as the person put the normal version as the picture. Turns out the codes weren't used at all and I sold all three separately $70 total.

your deal is obviously better, but someone has them at $7.49 shipped, brand new. i bought 1 and there are 2 left if anyone wants one. $7.49 for two games isnt half bad imo

Wow I wish I knew about that sooner. Mine are supposedly new and factory sealed but I bought it from a seller with 3 feedback and no history in the past 12 months. Not a big deal since it was only $6 but still for the extra $1.50 it would have been worth it for peace of mind.

Myibay bid sniper (a site and a firefox addon) is what I use...it's very easy to set and forget a max bid and snipe time and let the auction run without worrying about it.

is there really such thing as an "Ebay find"? arent the rest of the "Finds" threads basically comparisons to how much you'd turn around and make on Ebay? these for the most part seem like used game prices and not that special. this is just my opinion when i first saw this thread

Absolutely, there are eBay "finds". In fact, it's one of my two primary ways to find rare games and valuable games at a discount. Yes, a search for "Bioshock Limited" pulls up multiple copies on eBay, but getting an early morning $19.99 buy-it-now on a copy certainly qualifies as a "find" (this did happen to me for the complete w/Big Daddy PC version). Ditto for the OP's grab of jewels like Pokemon Box NTSC and NCAA Basketball 2K3. Those are not at all easy to find in the wild to begin with so to find them anywhere at a discount is a Big Deal.

Sometimes people will set a low BIN so there are ebay finds

So much shadiness on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/...=item3a5908ab76

"This is an original xbox360 game disc and not a copy. There are a few light scratches but nothing deep. It is for the disc only. It does not come with a cover or inserts. This is how i originally bought the game."

Yet he has 2 available. I'm thinking they got scratched as he hurriedly removed them from the case the local retail store.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

based on the number of disc only game he sold they are probably stolen

I guess stealing it is always cheapter THAN buying it from the store.
