I scored some a sweet trade today. Pics and story up soon.

Found some NES rares that I had never heard of.


Here we go, I traded my Wii U that I rarely play on a craigslsit haul today. by far my most expensive craigslist haul, but I feel that it was worth it.... The sad thing is that he said that he had alot more games that he couldnt find that would have gone with it. Sadly there was a Dragon Warrior II Manual included, but no game. That just made me wonder what was missing... lol

It feels like the good old days... lol I havent had this good of a NES craigslist haul in 3 or so years.

That is a pretty sweet haul, Wish I could find some awesome stuff on CL. All I ever see is outdated sports games and over priced PS2s and Wiis.

Alright!

So it came with these titles downloaded are FF7, FF9, Modnation Racers, Crash Bandicoot 1 & 2, Spyro, Brunswick Pro Bowling, SOCOM Fireteam Bravo, Pursui Force, Hot Shots Golf 2, Flying Hamster, Let's Golf, Uno, Gran Turismo and Need for Speed Most Wanted.

(All on an 8 gig stick BTW)

So what happened is that I messaged a guy off of CL to see if he would want anything in trade for his PSP, He said no, but would sell me the PSP and a 360 for 90. I agreed and borrowed 50 to pay for it. I got the psp and the games one day and handed him 70 with his promise to return the next day with the charger, 360, and 360 games. He returned, thankfully, and I gave him the other 20.

Fast forward a week, to today, and I get a message from a guy of CL asking about the 360. (I posted it the night before). We talk and agree on 75. He walks to my house, because he lives only a half mile away, and buys it!!!! I pay back the 50, keep 25, and end up only spending 10 on the psp.


HUZZAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Also the guy has $3.11 on his PSN account still)

This guy is selling a strange assortment of video games and consoles for $60. Including Snatcher and Lunar for the Sega CD, an N64 console (without stuff). I'm interested, but I guess I don't really want it anyway, even if the CD games are very valuable.

I'd jump on that, at least ask if he'll take less for it. Either of those CD games would be well worth it. If you can find some issue with something, the consoles not having cords or something, you can usually get a good discount.

Everything you see in the photos below was bought from one guy for $125 total. Even delivered it to me. Lots of stuff to sell, and even more to keep. Really happy with this lot. Not pictured: a wireless Kramer Guitar Hero Guitar, and a desktop Sirius Satellite Radio. Very odd mix of items.

Posted Image
Decent haul of N64, SNES, and a Sega 32x Games. Also scored a game saver for the SNES. Never had one before.

Posted Image
Neo Geo Pocket and a DS Case.

Posted Image
Nintendo Pin Collection. This will end up on display, methinks.

Posted Image
Sega totes for Game Gear and CDx, plus a Turbo Booster and some DK Bongos.

Posted Image
PS1 Games. A couple are new.

Posted Image
XBox 360 Games. A few of these are new too.

Posted Image
PS2, XBox, Wii, and GameCube Games.

Posted Image
Some plug and play gaming keychains, a DK keychain, and ROM Cart for a Game Boy Advance, and a GameBox Advance with a ton of games installed.

Yes.. that is a very wide array of items lol.

Found this N64 sign yesterday, have no idea of real value of it, or if anyone would want it. I imagine collectors might like it as a display piece, so here it is. Feel free to make an offer I dont want it.

Contacted a guy yesterday about a Dreamcast with 14 games (MvC1 and 2, Power Stone, Sonic Adv, Shemune) for $60. At first I was the only one interested in the package. Before we could meet up, someone must have told him the games are worth more than that. He said he will piece it out, or sell to the highest bidder, currently at $80. I said I'll pay your original $60.

I'm tired of people like this on Craigslist. Everytime.

Ive been too busy lately to scout craigslist much these days, i still need a set of retro oem controllers for nes/snes/genesis/n64/ps1, but usually you have to buy the entire set of console + games + controllers and i just dont have time to resell all the other stuff since i just need the controllers.

Thats why with CL you have to be ready to meet up and pay quickly, or as you found out, some sore loser will ruin it for you.

This guy called me at 1AM (real sketchy) saying he needed money ASAP. He had responded to my Craigslist ad earlier, and he said if I could come pick this lot up then, he would sell it to me for $50. So I drove out there at about 2AM, and man, I am so glad I did.

23 Games include:
Illusion of Gaia
Shadowrun
Knights of the Round
Super Bomberman 2

So I got another hit on my craigslist ad this past week (which usually never happens).. This guy was also "strapped for cash" but 100% less sketchy. Paid $30 for all the NES & SNES stuff. NES doesn't work.. flashing purple screen, i'm guessing the pin adapter problem. It is also missing the flip cover. Decent games, nothing too rare.. most of the NES games are going in my collection

Not my pic, but I picked up one of these off CL yesterday for $10. They were a preorder bonus for Mirrors Edge, I think. I bike everywhere, so I have to carry packages to be shipped, need to bring pick-ups home, ect, so I'm a sucker for any cool backpacks or messenger bags. The one from the Infamous 2 CE is annoyingly tiny, too small for me even to strap on, but this thing is enormous.
