Updated to End

Okay not sure how to close poll but free shipping has more votes but the people that voted no have a lot more trades under their belt so I'm going to have to vote no on the free shipping. So I'll give free shipping to Highest bidder and Most items bought (US only). Hope that pleases most. Now since I already have bid even though there is no end date I am starting now and ending Sunday July 24, 2011 between 8pm-9pm pacific. So lets start this shit...or something cool sounding.

RULES: Same as most other lowball sales.
Spoiler


Ending the Auction: Sunday July 24, 2011 8pm-9pm pacific
This Auction will NOT have a rolling end. It will have a solid end time. I will not be posting the exact ending time, but I will tell you it will end sometime between 8P.M. and 9 P.M. (Pacific Standard Time) on 07/24/11. Once I post saying AUCTION OVER - NO MORE BIDS ACCEPTED, that is it and nothing further will count.
I do not like sniping. Actually I do, but I do not want to sort through 75 last minute bids to find out the winners and make an extra $10. So, if you plan to win, your best option is to make a decent bid early!

Shipping/Payment:
If you win one item, shipping is $3. *Each additional item will be $1.
* If you end up with a bunch of light things, I will refund some of the shipping to you afterward if it's more than a few bucks difference. Trying to keep this US only, but will ship to Canada, of course will be extra. And free shipping to highest bidder and bidder with most items.

The following form of payment is accepted.
~ Paypal (Please cover fees if you can. http://www.rolbe.com/paypal.htm)
~ Amazon
Both payment addresses - batman1939@hotmail.com
~ Money Order
~ Cash (At own risk of course.)

I will start shipping Saturday because I have a Monday-Friday 8am-6pm job

Paid already

Freebies Rule
I got a lot of stuff to give away but I've seen free give aways that I would pay for in other sales so this is what I'm going to do. Freebies are for any winner who wants them. If you pay first you choose first, second payment gets second choice and so on. But if there is something you just have to have, you can bid on it and it will become part of the sale.

Definitely some stuff I'm interested in on there. Unfortunately I'd be buying them to play them, so the fact that they're sealed will probably take them out of my price range :(.

As for the free shipping, it would definitely increase the face value of your bids. I pretty much set myself a number and I don't go over it, so I include shipping cost in that. Whether or not not having to pay shipping would prod me to throw an extra dollar or two in there, I can't say. Since most of your games are sealed, I don't think you have to worry about ending with any 2 or 3 dollar bids. It's a risk. I personally wouldn't do it, but I can see the logic in trying it.

Perhaps you should set a certain dollar point, that if reached, you would offer free shipping?

Those sealed games will draw attention for sure.

As August said, I have my own limit for bidding. Getting free shipping is a great way to up my max bid. Although how much it will actually net you? Not sure.

Offering free shipping to the top buyer is a good deal imo, if you really want to offer it somehow.

Same here- I love the Zelda lanyard, for instance :)

I'd be in on the Genesis Castlevania but that's probably the extent of my involvement

This, if you do free shipping for everyone, your gonna get crushed. Also, if anyone is worried about the back of those SNES games, they are easy enough to replace with a minty one from a cheaper game.

My last lowball ended with no one wanting the same thing so at the end just tell me what you want at the end and hopeful no one else wants it or you can bid on any freebie to make it part of the lowball.

If I had a Genesis I'd be all over Bloodlines as well. Batman, got any more GBA games to offer?


Maybe I should add my Genesis in box :-k. I do have more GBA games might add more.

Any more nes, snes games? I missed out in your last LB since I wasn't home. =( EDIT: I was confusing with frosty the batman for the last lowball but my question still remains.


Not to many NES games, I lost a bag years ago with like 15 of them...mom is the prime suspect. SNES games, traded them in for my N64, I miss Turtles in Time. I do have Castlevania II in a box somewhere no manual though.

i sort of like the castlevania bloodline but it isn't the colored manual.


Sorry box version not case version
