or you were like me and bought one copy and felt happy about that one copy and didnt need the others because to a kid, having multiple copies of the same thing seems redundant.


Or, your brain says: "there are so many and its so cheap . . . it will never be worth much".

Granted the sales rank on Amazon makes it look like it would never sell, but still . . .

http://www.amazon.co...tamax SL-HF2000

If I had this baby, I wouldn't let anyone play a tape on it . . . I'd pick up something much cheaper for dear old dad . . . actually, I'd buy him copies of his old Beta tapes on DVD . . .

Actually, here is a better example:
http://www.ebay.com/...=item19d46f9ded

I don't think your dad really needs this . . . ;)


Geez, that Beta on ebay ened up selling for $699.99! :-o I can't imagine what I'll get for the full setup. I had spoken to him about it and sure enough he had put it in his garage. He asked me about it again today and mentioned it was still in the garage. I'm going to go pick it up here soon. He wants me to convert some of his out of print tapes to DVD with it. After that, it goes up for sale!

Hit some sales this morning since I'm on vacation. Not much, but I do have one find I'm happy with. Post to come.

You will have to let us know what it sells for after the sale is done! This weekend is looking like a washout for here though so I probably won't get anything, not like I don't have enough to keep me busy anyways!

No I thought it was a really short connector cable for either a sega CD or 32X or something. It used to sell for like $100 on ebay. I don't think I imagined it. 8-[

I think you are speaking of one of these.

http://www.ebay.com/...9#ht_2244wt_904

Usually when you run across a 32X this cable is missing. They are pretty much impossible to find in the wild, but fortunatley a fellow CAG gave me this link. Apparently they started reproducing them. I think there were two different versions; a model 1 and a model 2. I'm not 100% sure on that since I can't remember what came with mine when I bought it new back in 1995.

One other thing to look out for the 32X came with two different metal adapter plates, one for model 1 and one for model 2, that went over the cartrige imput to prevent the unit from wiggling in the slot. They are not absolutely necessary but if you want a complete setup it is something you want.

well gonna give yard sales another shot, found a community sale ad that advertises "over 500 nes snes n64 gamecube gameboy ds 3ds wii xbox xbox 360 ps1 ps2 ps3 psp" games starting at 25 cents I texted him and says he has around 45 NES/SNES games so gonna give it a shot. Just worried it might be a dealer/reseller as he states they will buy/sell/trade games. Luckily its not far from my place. Wish me luck

Sheesh, it's like that version of Trivial Pursuit is a required item for all sales. I swear, I see it almost every single time I go to a yard sale or thrift store. It's a great game, though...but I think we've already gone through all of the questions.

Woohoo got something today! Not much but I passed on a dirty ass N64 without cords but had Zelda for $20.

I ended up with
Tomb Raider PS1 Complete
Tomb Raider 2 PS1 Complete
Resident Evil PS1 Complete (original jewel case version)

Passed on a 360 that was sitting in the rain as well as some shitty anime.

Not a bad day, it was raining and there were not many sales going on.

I actually have the box and manual; not sure yet if I'm going to keep it as trade bait or use it to seed a manual lot. SNES paper right now is all over the place; I've been trying to finish off a few common / uncommon manuals and some are hard-to-find at a reasonable price.

Today turned out good for me; on the third sale I visited the ad mentioned ps1, ps2, and xbox games. At first I was thinking reseller, so expectations weren't high...but when I arrived on site there were these sparkling jewel cases at $1 each:

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere
Crash Bandicoot
Crash Bandicoot 2
Crash Bandicoot Warped
Crash Team Racing
Dino Crisis
Dino Crisis 2
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Medal of Honor
Metal Gear Solid
Namco Museum Vol 1.
Resident Evil: Director's Cut
Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil 3
Resident Evil Survivor
Spyro the Dragon
Spyro: Ripto's Rage
Tekken 3
Tenchu Stealth Assassins

Halo 2: Limited Edition (xbox)

Paid $18 for everything here. Just about all the ps1 games have Near Mint discs too *thumbs up*

Now don't go anywhere because this dream has a Part 2 coming up. So my eyes are running over some not too exciting selections; a psOne for $15 and an original xbox for $50. However, the xbox is resting on another box which has camouflage colors, a Capcom logo, and just happens to be a Steel Battalion Controller CIB. The price? $50.

Now I'm paying for my ps1 games, contemplating whether I have room to take on this beast; but considering it has the Steel Battalion game CIB as well.. I offer $40 and we settle on $45.

The guy was even nice enough to give me his phone number in case any cords were missing or it didn't work--and I've got to say it's a joy meeting people like this, the gamer who is looking to pass along his nicely kept things to a good home. And to a home it went; I've got it hooked up in the basement and it works like a champ :D

Nice I found Steel Battalion controller and games only about 2 years ago for $40?. I eventually trade it into a local store, but you can easily get $200+ with it being complete

NES HAUL DAYYYY!!!!!

First sale I went to I said hello to the woman working, and bought lemonade from a little girl (just because I remember being that kid sitting there while everyone walks past you so I figured it was a nice thing to do). I look around and see nothing, then I ask the girls mother if she has any video games. She goes to ask her husband who comes back with an official Nintendo game case with 10 NES games including.

-Tecmo Bowl
-Super C
-Contra X2
-The Adventure of Link
-SMB 2
-SMB 3
-Snakes Revenge
-Super Glove Ball
-SMB/ Duck Hunt

The price.....$10 :D he was hesitant but the woman said I seemed like a nice guy so he gave me the deal. I guess it just goes to show that being polite and all that jazz can yield good results. If I hadn't bought any lemonade maybe he would have walked out with a box of 10 copies of Fuck for SNES 8-)

Second sale I walked into the garage and it instantly started POURING, like apocalypse end of the world kind of storm. I asked about games and the guy went inside to check. He came back with 11 games :D only problem is, the garage wasnt attached to the house so everything got soaked....he cut me a deal because it was all soaked and for $5 I got

-Stinger
-Gotcha!
-Anticipation
-Star Voyager
-Star Force
-Batman
-Little Mermaid
-10 yard fight
-R.B.I Baseball
-The 3 Stooges
-Freedom Force

All in all a great day, and I decided to head home early because of the rain :)

For sure, it's like I've joined the CAG Steel Battalion club now 8-) It's strange though, the guy even mentioned it being worth $200 but I guess with it being so bulky he just wanted it gone to clear up space.
