Here's my finds for the weekend. I got the SP for $5, and it's a 101 with a nigh perfect screen so I'm very happy about that. The books were $3 apiece, and the DVD's (the find I'm most proud of) I was able to get for $10. The games altogether came to $20, and the Game Genie was $5. Plus I met a guy who's into the local pinball tournament scene, so I'm going to chat with him about trying to get some official pinball tournaments at MAGFest this year.

 

Regarding video game early birds, it's gotten to the point where I generally avoid sales that advertise games unless the ad goes up after 12am the night before, otherwise it's swarming with resellers. Plus, I've managed to find a couple poeople in my area who are in the process of selling off years of yard sale finds that don't advertise on craigslist, so I like to hit them up first and then see where the wind takes me.

Hit one up today nearby. Had some DVDs for $1 each and four 360 games for $2 each. I picked up the Indiana Jones/Kung Fu Panda dual game set. Passed on Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, BK Pocket Racer and Open Season. Picked up Ace Ventura: Pet Detective for my nephews and Shutter Island for my dad both still sealed. (My sister also got the Dumb and Dumber double set that was open)

Im so incredibly jealous of this. This is the #1 thing on my list of things I want to find. Nice score.

 

Edit: Quite frankly, the price on these things has gotten just absolutely ridiculous; I mean at the end of the day it IS just a cable...sigh I should have just bought one off ebay when they were going for ~70-90 last year...

For the price of that cable why dont you just pick up an older Wii model with Gamecube ports and an official Nintendo component cable for it? Does the same exact job and you can even play Wii games if you want!

I had a very good morning, lmao.

 

First sale I found stuff at I got a copy of Pokepark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure as well as the Adventures of Tintin Volumes 2 and 3 hard cover for $2.00. I didn't know value, just wanted to break a $20.00. The game is worth around $25.00 and the books at least $10-15 each. These aren't the edition that I keep seeing when I check Amazon/EBay, same books but different covers. Found one of each that sold with this cover on eBay recently, one went for $20.00 and the other went for $30.00. Was going to keep these but may have to sell at that price...

 

Then I found a disc only Timesplitters Future Perfect for Gamecube for $1.00. One of the few GC games I still wanted.

 

Found an SP with no games but the cord for $2.00. Outside is a bit rough but buttons are all good and the screen is perfect. Its a 101 so even better.

 

Then I found a sale that had an Xbox controller for $1.00. Asked if they had any games and she pulled out 3 disc only Xbox games and said I could have them because she wasn't sure they worked. They all look fine, I'm guessing they will. Games are Star Wars Battlefront, Ghost Recon 2, and Barbie Horse Adventures Wild Horse Rescue. Funny enough, the Barbie game is one of the rarest games on the system, should fetch me $20-30. VERY nice day all in all, no huge finds but enough to make it worth the trip.

Airwolf

Metal Gear

Kung Fu Heroes

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out

Super Mario 3

Wrath of the Black Manta

Rygar

Caveman Games

American Gladiators

Golgo 13

Pinball Quest

Mystery Quest

Hogan's Alley

DuckTales

Ninja Gaiden

Goonies II

Double Dragon III

StarTropics

Snake's Revenge

Pac-Man (Tengen)

Altered Beast (Complete)

 

Dreamcast:

King of FIghters Dream Match 99 (Complete)

 

Playstation 2:

Klonoa 2 Lunatea's Veil (Complete)

 

DVD:

Everything was in good to great condition, and all the cart only games had Nintendo/Tengen sleeves. Not anything overly rare but a decent mixture of titles I think. DuckTales is the best game of the lot, no?

You wish you could get one for $80.

 

Besides, Wii can play GB games just fine with a little tweaking.

Another interesting find.

 

So 3 weekends ago I stumbled across a HP Mini Laptop. Owner told me it was broken and gave it to me for free.

 

I ordered a power cable on eBay and it works for the most part. One of the monitor hinges is broken and a few of the keys do not work. However, plugging in my wireless keyboard, everything works fine.

 

2 weird things happened when I turned this on. Turns out it belongs to a friend of mine LOL. The person I got it from must have been related to him somehow. I could not login on his account so I used his brothers..... and once I did that a porn video was playing -___- Also there was Limewire. This probably has viruses in it. But maybe factory restoring can fix it. I may just keep it and plug it into my TV.

 hmm, could be, I didn't think redoing a listing resulted in a "sold" listing, don't they normally say "this item is no longer available for sale" ?

Today's sales...

 

So I went back to the neighborhood I bought the Gamecube cord and receiver from as I was picking up some furniture I bought yesterday. I decided to stop by the guys house that I got the GC cord from. His son decided to bring out some Gamecube games. Bought Zelda Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda Collectors Edition, and Mario Kart Double Dash with a bonus disk, ALL COMPLETE. I bought those 3 games, and a MASSIVE Chicago IKEA poster for $15 total! I also bought 3 Vita games for $1 each, Forza 4 for $3, a cleaning kit for $5, and that's it.

So when I go yard saling, I usually follow the same basic route most weeks. This week I decided to do that route backwards.

 

Needless to say I didn't find any games until the very last sale.

 

I picked up :xbox: Sniper Elite (CIB), Morrowind: GOTY (missing manual) and :ps2: Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 (CIB) for $10 total. I will probably be selling these since I realized I have all three on Steam already lol.

This weekend was definitely a good one and I didn't really spend much at all!

 

9328007671_f1789b7804_z.jpg

 

This was an odd sale. The lady running had a bunch of N64 games, original Xbox, and PC games marked at $5 each. However, while looking through CDs I found a PS1 game. I asked how much and it was only $1. So I picked up Dracula: The Last Sanctuary. Luckily both discs were with it too but no manual.

 

9327966319_3386442262_z.jpg

 

On my way to an off-site meeting for work, I stopped by this sale. After looking around and almost leaving, I spotted a crate with VHS tapes in them and then mixed in were 5 complete N64 games. They were marked 50 cents each so I asked if they would take $2 for all 5. I got:
 
F1 Pole Position 64
All Star Baseball 99
FIFA Soccer 64
NFL Quarterback Club 98
Nagano Winter Olympics '98
 
9327972259_065ab34444_z.jpg
 
This was the first sale on Saturday I went to and came out ahead. These were laying on a table marked $1 for the binoculars and $1.50 for the calculator. I gave them $2 for both and got  Tasco inFocus Binoculars and a TI-83 Plus calculator.
 
9330775150_0530a48c0c_z.jpg
 
At this sale I started looking around and then saw a stack of NES games. I asked how much expecting it to be a buck or 2 each and she said a quarter each! I picked up all of them and offered $2 for the whole stack. I ended up with:
 
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out
Castlevania
Super Mario Bros. 3
8 Eyes
Tecmo Baseball
Golf
Ninja Gaiden II
Hoops
Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet
Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt
Commando
Joust
 
9327959653_50b05dd1c7_z.jpg
 
Went to this sale as there is always something at this particular one. I walked around and found a couple GBA games that were sitting in a bowl of water from where it had rained minutes earlier. I pulled them from the bowl and asked how much. The lady said "$2? no... $1? Just take them. They are wet and I don't know if they work now." So I ended up with:
 
American Bass (GBA)
Monster Trucks (GBA)
 
Not really sure what happened but I let confused and with games.
 
9330796388_21b210f0c6_z.jpg
 
This was not something I'd bargained for. I pulled up to this sale and immediately saw this printer. I disregarded it at first and then looked around. Finally I broke down and asked how much it was. They told me that they anted $5 for it. So I left. After going to the sale across the street, I thought about it more and then went back. I pulled $3 out and said if she'd take $3 I'd take the printer. So she did. It's an HP Officejet 6500 Wireless Printer/Scanner/Copier/Fax. I installed drivers, cleaned it up, and tested it out and works great!
 
9330782718_f043643af8_z.jpg
9327994363_44d7ab3d50_z.jpg
 
This was my last sale of the day for 2 reasons. I had no sales left on my radar to go to and I was about out of money. I looked around this sale and then asked if they had any game stuff. He said he had some Nintendo 64 stuff that they didn't play anymore and told me to wait a minute. He came back with a big box full of games and manuals with the console. I asked how much and he said to make an offer.I tole him I would give him all I had left in my pocket which was $8 and he took it! In the bok I got:
 
N64 Console
N64 Controller (x2)
PS A/V cable
N64 A/V Cable
N64 Transfer Pack (x2)
N64 Memory Card
 
Games:
Waverace 64

^ So jealous of this find! :)

I didn't find much, at least not as good a deal as you.

One sale, this lady had tons of gaming stuff that she said was her husbands. I dug around, found a few games, and she goes and grabs something when I ask how much. Her husband had printed off a chart of eBay prices. Super mario 3, super mario world on snes and a few ps1 games, bugs life, Barbie (for my kids). She quotes me $90 and says best she'd take is $80.
I left that sale. People using eBay as a guide really are annoying, they just find the highest listed price and assume that's how much it is.

Next one I happened on was not bad, I dug through a little box with games, lady wanted $10 per, but I managed to get them 3 for $20. Super Mario sunshine, Zelda wind waker and animal crossing. Not the best deal, but decent.

That was my only gaming find yesterday, the other little odds and ends, new boxing gear for my son, $5 and another coach bag for $5 then I headed home.

Today was decent for me actually.  

 

Hit 4 sales and found stuff at 3 of the 4.

 

1) A genesis model 2 with a few crappy games and 2 controllers $5

 

2) Pokemon Heartgold, Pokemon Ranger, Super Mario 64 DS (all cart only) $6

 

3) A Platinum gamecube (no controllers/cables), gameboy player adaptor, 2 Dragonball Z GBA games, a gamecube mic, Phantasy Star Online Episodes I+II, and a silver game boy micro $10

 

Overall I was pretty excited to get the micro though I dont know if it works, and Phantasy Star was a nice find
