You are catching up fast lol


LOL I'm on vacation and decided to do this since it would help unburden my mind. I still have 5 more posts to make to catch up but I'm taking a break until this evening. Looking at all this stuff makes me realize I need to slow down or start selling some of it off. Maybe both! I better decide quickly because there will be a large festival this weekend with many more sales.

Star Wars Battlefront II, Luigi's Mansion and Sonic Gems $1 each. Everything across the top was $1 total. The lady said it was given to her by a friend and she wanted to get rid of it.

This sale advertised Nintendo and Genesis stuff along with CDs and DVDs. I overslept in the morning so I ended up missing out on all gaming stuff. The guy said someone arrived shortly before he opened and cleaned him out. This guy was a HUGE Beastie Boys fan. The items I have here is about 20% of what he had. He wouldn't budge off of $2 each so I just grabbed the stuff I really wanted or thought was unusual. The Three on the right are all imports. One not pictured that I can't seem to find is a Japanese import Rolling Stones "Music Box".

All the PS1 games came from the same sale and I paid full price, don't ask why I picked up Courier Crisis. Final Fantasy XII was $0.25 at a separate sale and is still sealed. No other gaming stuff at the sale.

Thought this morning was going to be rained out since it kept pouring until 8:00. Went looking anyway and ran into people setting up late. PS2 games $1 each. They had about 10 more but these were the only ones I was remotely interested in.

Found these at a name your price church community sale a few blocks from my house. PS2 with no cables, PSP Xia Lin (sealed) and an Optimus MPS-45 amp. Paid $40. Before you guys jump on me about the price, all proceeds were going to buy local kids school clothes. At least I hope I gave a fair price. I'm not really sure what the value of the amp is. I just recently picked up a bass guitar and started learning.

Found these at an old folks retirement home community sale. I wasn't expecting much but found these as they were closing down. Paid $2.50.
Also saw stuff like MW3, Battlefield 3, Black OP PS3 for $15 each but I already have them. I don't normally flip but that MW3 may have been a chance to get some value.

Only one find for this weekend. I remember unwrapping one of these for
Christmas when I was a kid. Paid $3 and it's complete with cars. I've been looking for Hot Wheels that I had as a child recently. The ones I'm mostly looking for are the ones that can jack up in the back end, the color changers and the ones that had the side pannels that would flip around like they were wrecked when they bump something.

At the same sale I picked up a large yellow Tonka dump truck from the late 70's early 80's for $3. Some of these have started to pick up value. Didn't take a picture because I put it out in my garage. If anyone absolutely wants to see it, I can go dig it out and take a shot.

You really didn't overpay, you just donated $30 for a great cause. More importantly, keep that amp turned down with the bass as you really need a bass amp... that one will blow out if turned up too loud...
chances are you can find a good amp on craigs for under $50...

great finds and pics...

That's an old wive's tale! Guitar amps just make your bass sound really shitty. I've never done it, but I do think you're right that the speaker can get blown out.

I've been using a Peavey guitar amp for years for my bass, and it sounds grungy and dirty, but never blown a speaker.

Keep the distortion down on that thing too, will make it sound even more horrid.

Here's a find SaraAB will like.

Sony Betamax SL-HF2000 $5. Ran into this at an estate sale, they had two different models complete in box. I got this one because it looked newer, was complete with all packing materials, manual, dust cover, remote in bag and even the receipt. This is a 1990 model purchased in 1992 in California. I purchased this for my father who still has some of his Beta tapes. After hearing what Sara said, I wish I had purchased both of them.

Posted Image
Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This sale advertised CDs, there was a whole tote full of them but these were the only ones I liked. $0.50 each.

Posted Image
Uploaded with ImageShack.us

More CDs at $1 each. I think everyone around here is getting rid of their CD collections. The DVDs were $1.50 each. Angelina Jolie was soooo hot before she went anorexic.

Posted Image
Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Found these PS1 games at an advertised sale at about noon. I grabbed the decent stuff that was left, there was still quite a bit left but nothing worth owning. The regular games were priced $0.50 each and the Jampacks were priced $0.25 each. I ended up getting them all for $5.50, probably trying to clear out what was left. Since I got there at noon, I kinda wonder what I missed out on.

I've been working on getting a complete Jampack/Underground collection. I'm missing some of the early PS1 titles and some of the PS2 titles as well. I figure they're something not many people collect and I can get them for pretty cheap.

I think you beat me on the betamax since yours is in box and basically sealed. You definitely should have gotten both of them though, as the value for them is quite high. I assume that any random beta deck is worth about $50 which would make a decent flip if you paid $5 or under for it. I think that 2000 model might be the newest one made, so it should be pretty sought after, especially in the box. I haven't seen a beta in the wild in 12 years of yard sailing, and the one I got I had to ask for, but I live in an area where people didn't exactly own the latest most expensive electronics so it is very hard to find the more expensive things. I am going to take pictures of the rest of the things I picked up this weekend, as some of them are quite interesting.

I guess now I have to go on a quest for a Laserdisc player or a CED player...

Yeah, if I had that one in the box I would just sell it and get another one for dad! I could purchase several cheaper units even if I was going to go the ebay route for the price of that one! Also my beta is a SL-HFR70.

I'd stay away from CED Videodiscs, it's one format where disc rot is built in and a lot of collectors pass these up in favor of Laserdiscs. My father had a player and a stack of thirty that weren't worth diddly unless you were looking to drop them out of a window and assassinate someone :lol:

Haha, well I would only pay a really cheap price, like a dollar or 2 for one, so it wouldn't be a major loss if it was broken or busted. I am not going for a whole collection here. I have a CED of the Last Starfighter here so I have something to test it with. I haven't seen any of that stuff around here, though, but I shouldn't say that I won't because as soon as I say that it will appear.

Last post since sales were rained out this last weekend! I will be caught up and I can finally stop spamming the thread!

Posted Image

Advertised sale. Arrived late since I overslept (again!) at about 9:00. There were alot of people at the sale but they were all in their late 50's early 60's. I paid the full $3 each since people started showing interest as soon as I started looking at them. The total bill was $39. Now that I look at it, that was probably too much. They also had a dirty NES for $15 and SNES for $20. I passed since I already have more NES and SNES than I will ever need.

I think the only reason these were still there is because there were two huge city wide sales going on in surrounding cities. I almost think it's better to stay away from those huge city wide sales since it takes away from the competition locally. But the only reason I didn't go to them is because our office was being rearranged and the boss wanted me to go check on things to make sure it was going smoothly. :-( So after hitting this one up, I went in to work until noon. I went to check out one of the city wide sales afterwards but everything decent was cleaned out as expected. It drives me nuts that this ended up falling on probably one of the largest yard sale weekends of the year around here.

Posted Image
Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Went back to the same sale on Sunday and they still had quite a few games left. The NES was gone as were all the NES cartriges except the Super Mario 3 which wasn't there the day before. When I started digging through them, they offered to sell me both systems (they had a N64 inside) and all the games for $55. I declined because most of the games left weren't that good. I asked if they would take $1.50 per cart which they accepted. Got all of the above for $10.50, a better deal than the day before even though they were better quality.

WOW! I figured it had some value, but that's pretty amazing! That Ebay listing still has 8 days left and is at $136 as the machine only. I think I will try to get it back since he tends to put stuff out in his dusty, dirty garage. I'll at least let him know its value so he won't mistreat it. I originally had plans to convert some of his titles to DVD. There are some that he has that at the time were not available on that format, that may have changed by now.

I actually had a guy at a yard sale willing to sell me his Laserdisc player and some movies earlier this year but he asked me to come back the next day so he could dig it up. I never made it back since he lived out in the boondocks. Still, my favorite home theater find is the late 70's top-loading VHS I got for $3 a few years ago. I swear that thing weighs at least 40 pounds!

My university had those huge woodgrain top loading VCR's (they are probably still using them today), They were so heavy they had them on movable carts, they looked like they weighed 60lbs or more each which they probably did. They were probably about the size of 3-4 betamax players stacked on top of each other. They also had laserdisc players, because one was used in one of my classes, only time I have ever seen a laser player used, also I was more interested in the player than the material being taught.

The gun is for a Wii which is fine since I don't own a 360.... yet.

I remember seeing advertisements for Brisco County Jr when it was on the air, never saw a single episode. The only reason I grabbed it was because it was $0.50! Hopefully someday I'll have the time to watch it.

I can't remember the last time I saw a Gameboy Pocket. Wish it was at the sale also! Something else I own that I have no need for.

I've started going through stuff I've gotten over the past few years via yard sales, CL, ect. I have waaaaay too much media! I think I'm up to at least four paper ream boxes full of just NES carts. Most likely 60% of those are duplicates. Time to set up a trade page and get ready to sell during the Christmas season this year.

That digimon game is worth like $40 the last time I checked, I know because I have it, probably paid 50 cents for it a few years ago. The guide must be insanely rare, it would probably fetch a lot with the guide.


That's actually my second copy of Digimon World 3 this year, I found a GH copy this past spring. I think I've found most of the Digimon games this year.

So everybody here's an update on my Yard sale Moral dilemma. We went to my local shop(I have a very good relationship with the owner) and he offered us $300 for the lot. Plus on thop of that she let me take a game out before hand as a "honesty" reward(I grabbed Knights of the Round for SNES) plus my game guy slipped me a $20 for bringing her in(Never expected the $20 from him). So in the end for me being honest and upfront I got $170 plus Knights of the Round. Granted I could've gotten more had I not told my wife's friend but for being honest and doing very little work I think I made out pretty well.
