I was cut short by rain at 10:30, but fortunately I had some good vibes this morning as I donned my flannel--and guess what... they were actually justified.
1st stop: Avoided both of the "big" (and tapped out) advertised flea markets and went further down in a neighborhood where I had found a nice n64 Conker's lot before. First thing I saw was a guy with a ps2 console and n64 w/ Mario Kart inside for $40 each, yeah right, so I headed across the street.
At first I saw some gba games, an advance console, some xbox titles, nothing really super-interesting but then there's a Playing with Power Poster framed, so I ask a little more about SNES since I'm betting there's some less-than-casual collecting going on here. All this time I'm looking both ways for a nemesis to appear, but it's all clear--and here's the score!
Soul Blazer C.I. to the B (no poster) - Asking price was thirty, but I'll gladly give you $20. (so happy to be able to play this without paying tons of $$$, drool)
If that wasn't enough, there was also
Breath of Fire CIB
Actraiser 2 CIB
which had been "researched" for their cart-only prices, so there I am trying not to look like this is a crack fix and I offer $5 each
Then there was this stuff:
(xbox) Star Wars: Jedi Outcast
Tetris 2 CIB nes
all for $5
Then there was all of this:
Gameboy Advance white console
Final Fantasy Adventure
Final Fantasy Legend
NBA Jam T.E.
Pokemon Pinball (gba)
NES four way controller adaptor
Super Gameboy CIB
Super Tennis in box
Offered $15, settled on $20
And on my way out I picked up:
(xbox) jetset radio future - $1
(Good pick, believe it or not)
TMNT 3 (nes) from the overpriced people across the street - $2
Not much else of note, except a few blocks down I saw a plastic bin filled with 80s He-Man and TMNT toys, they wanted $10 but at that point I was so hyped from my game haul and toys aren't exactly my area, though I'm sure they had $70-80 worth of stuff (part of castle grayskull, almost all of the major heroes and villains from both series, etc.)
The Asylum leads the eyes of those pursued by gaming madness...
