Heya. From the looks of it that pokemon emerald looks like a bootleg. It should have a shiny label not a plain matte one.

If its a bootleg it might also say odd things when you start up the game like "The game save is okay and can be loaded" I got a bootleg emerald once.

I don't think it's fake since it has the green transparent case on it but it's probably the angle of the photo make's the label not shine.

Well I just had a decent find yesterday. But also a really terrible CL experience. Creeped me out actually.

$70 for gamecube bundle with 2 official controllers and a gamestop brand wavebird, and offbrand memory card.
Included luigis mansion, smash bros, digimon world 4, zoids battle legends, paper mario, and a trash game.

Asked him on the phone if he had any other old games looking to sell, he brought a N64 with about 12 games and 2 controllers.
I picked out smash bros, bomberman 64, pokemon snap, and mario party 1. Along with both controllers and offered $20 and he took it immediately.

Now as for the creepiness. Was meeting in a parking lot by a petsmart. Guys showed up 20 minutes late, I was actually driving away as they called to tell me they were there.

Got there and they said they would just look for me, I told em what I looked like and my car.

Two guys approached me asking if I was looking for any stuff.. lol. I just said "No im not."
Then they said, oh what about like game stuff, for craigslist?

So then they say, okay let me see the money..lol. "No you guys are making me uncomfortable." I was thinking about just leaving.
Then they said something like well Im not showing you the games until I see the money. So then I just started walking away to my car to leave.

They say okay fine, go over there and well show you. And they pointed off.. lol. "where do you want me to go?" then they pointed again and it was a car parked 30 feet away. But under a light.

So i went over, they brought out the games, etc. They didnt bring any bags (hate that) so they helped me take stuff to my car. I had to watch them, I kept looking back.

Then they get to my car and say wow your car is really clean. Sounds like a line someone says before they rob you or something. Two guys, one kid about my age and an older guy who looked like a tweaker. They were both smoking the entire time too.

So basically creeped me out the entire time, thought of just leaving a few times but it was a good buy.

Craigslist sucks. Ive never had something like that happen before though, but now Im going to want to have someone else with me when im meeting at night.


lol that's hilarious lmfao!!!!

I once met up with a girl to buy parasite eve from her... but 10 minutes before we met i got super high... lets just say it was an awkward moment during the transaction.. i even emailed her later on that day to tell her why i was acting so weird.. or at least i felt like i acted weird...

lol

but don't judge me! that was like 2 years ago, i no longer smoke.. :)

All these games are in mint condition. I got eveything for $270. They were individually priced based straight off of Video Game Price Charts (which in the end helped me out considerably. Thanks to him not checking the completed ebay searches.) Also since I bought most of his games he cut me a deal. Considering the condition and these are a few of the last PS1 RPG's I am looking for I am quite happy. Now to sell the Lunar's and make most of my money back.

So, I saw an ad on craigslist where the lady stated she had over 100+ NES games, and she wanted $7 each. I emailed her, told her I would come check them out today. Turns out, her father used to own a video game store in Michigan!!! I was able to haggle with her, and paid $70 for all of these. I was overwhelmed with what she had. I'm not an expert on NES games and prices, so I had to pick out what I knew and thought would be valuable. I need to go back because I know I spotted a Tetris Tengen and a Micro Machines (and a bunch of other unliscenced games) but I didn't know if it was worth anything. She also said she had about 100-200 more back home.

Titles include Megaman 1,2,3,5 contra, death race, lolo 2,3, captain comic, CIB dr mario, TMNT arcade

^^ Wow very nice pick up. I dont really know too many NES values either. Just know that generally mario, zelda, metroid, castlevania, mega man are worth some money. And I know a few random rare ones like panic restaurant.

I have a lead on my biggest CL buy by far today. Seller seems motivated but isnt available until the afternoon. He was available last night but since its so much money / games I wanted to wait for the next day.

Ill update later with details

Got a hold of the husband of the wife I've been talking to about the OG Xbox mentioned earlier and he said that the thing hasn't been played but a handful of times. Once the PS3 came out, they got one and the Xbox sat on a shelf. All the games mentioned above have their manuals, but that's all. Includes everything as mentioned above and the wife said her bottom dollar was $30.00. Thought about haggling, but for that price, it isn't worth it. (By the way, the whole conversation was over e-mail, not the phone or texting.)

I called him and now I'm just waiting to hear back from him.

So heres my haul. I found the ad around 9:20 last night, called and the guy wanted to meet then but I had to get up early for a test today. So we decided to meet today.

For the original stuff we agreed on $285. Original stuff was all GC games, gameboy pokemon games, and n64 games.

Met up today, and he said that he had like a hundred extra gameboy cartridge games. I told him to bring them and Id make an offer if anything interested me. I ended up buying a lot of extra stuff off of him.

Heres a pic of everything at once

Paid another $80 for the extra games, came out to around $4 a piece.

So I paid $365 for everything pictured. Very happy with my buy, shattered my old record of CL finds.

Congrats evuong and Artrigis. I am especially jealous of your Mega Man 1 & 5 pick up. I have been looking for those forever!

And here is my recent pick up from Craigslist. Nothing amazing like the guys above but I needed the Zelda's. I paid $80 for everything.

Posted Image
Sadly the official Wavebird's control stick nub is missing.

Posted Image
Game at bottom are day of Reckoning 1 & 2. All that was originally $60. I was quite surprised I was able to score this lot since several people in my area are advertising on CL that they want to buy Gamecube games specifically. What is with this sudden surge in Gamecube popularity?

Then the guy brought up his PS1 collection to see if I was interested in them. I got them all for $20. Discs are in rough shape but play fine. Going to try to quickly dump most of these at a trade shop and cherry pick the rest.

Posted Image
The drawer was the thing I was most interested in. The PS1 is a model 2 unit.

Posted Image
These are the game I will likely keep. Though depending on what I get the rest I may sell Hot Wheel and Digimon to make my money back. *stupid greatest hits*

Just got my first Genesis bundle. Paid $40 for it all. Havent tested it yet, but the guy said it all worked last night.

Looks like a genesis model 2 to me. Also came with a genesis 32x
Spoiler


6 Controllers, looks like only 2 name brand. Those ones with a bunch of buttons I think are offbrand and worth nothing right?
Spoiler


Games, all CiB with manuals

More games, all CiB with manuals

How do you guys think I did? What about value on this? I havent really dealt with genesis stuff before. Was happy to get the system though

I'm not sure on the exact value, I'm not too up on Genesis prices either, but looks like a really nice haul to me. Some good games in there and can't beat all of that for only $40. Good job.

Finally got some pics of the new arrival. Original Xbox, 2 controllers, cables and games. $30.00. Unfortunately, he forgot the power cable, but I had one lying around. If he finds it, great. If not, I'll live. :D

By the way, sorry about the quality of the pics. I hate my camera.

Got a SNES + Controller today minus the Power Adapter for $10. It was quite dirty and was stained with something I hope was coffee. I took the console and controller apart, gave it a good scrubbing with soap and hot water and it looks like it came from a thrift store (kinda cleanish).
It was a the type of model that came with a smaller soundchip shield and no plastic tab to hold the cartridge in place.
After cleaning, tested my Japanese and American games, and it works fine.

Maybe later I'll drill a hole into it for an S-video.
