Went hunting yard sales for the first time in a long time... feel like I came out great on what I picked up.
Sale 1 - $15:
- SNES w/ 3 Controllers and Original Hookups (Dirty and had sticker saying it worked)
- 10 SNES games in plastic boxes (all with Original Manuals in decent shape)
- Super Mario Land
- Mario is Missing
- Donkey Kong Country 1
- Donkey Kong Country 2
- Donkey Kong Country 3
- Tetris 2
- Paperboy 2
- Professional Pool
When I showed up, they had $7 on the SNES, so the haggler in me offered $5 and she accepted. Was getting ready to leave and thought I'd ask if she might have any games. She said yes and brought out the games I got above marked at $7 each. I offered her $10 and she accepted (must be my smile
) ). Got it home, cleaned it all up and everything works fine. My 5 year old son is playing Super Mario Land as I type.
Hit a few more sales and picked up some not gaming related items (jack stands for car, yard shears, etc..). I did find a couple of Devil May Cry Novels for $25 each that should be fun to read.
Sale 2 - $20:
- 8 Playstation 2 Games (All Mint and Complete)
- GTA III
- GTA Vice City
- GTA San Andreas
- NFS: Hot Pursuit 2
- NFS: Underground
- NFS: Underground 2
They wanted between $3 - $10 for each of the games, but was able to bundle it for a fair price.
The rest of the sales I went to didn't really have much gaming-wise, except a couple where I picked up a Gameboy Advance SP case for a quarter and mint PS2 Blue Controller for $1 that needs the cord fixed (looks like dog chewed it).
After I was done with yard sales, I thought I'd check out a local mom & pop gaming store that was closing to see what kind of deals they had. Picked up the following for roughly $45.
- 11 Xbox (Original) Games (All are complete except Just Cause and Guilty Gear missing books)
- Mace Griffin - Bounty Hunter
- X-Men Legends
- Soul Caliber II
- Dead or Alive 3
- Dead to Rights
- Dead to Rights 2
- Just Cause
- Guilty Gear X2 #Reload
- Indigo Prophecy
- Deus Ex - Invisible War
- Legacy of Kain: Defiance
- Resident Evil Survivor - PS1 (To add to my collection of RE Games)
- Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
- Max Payne - PS2 (No book)
- Mortal Kombat - SNES - Cart Only
Overall I thought I got a good amount of quality stuff today. Going to hit a few more sales tomorrow to wrap up my weekend. Hopefully I can have a good day tomorrow too.
