What's with everyone reserving an early post in the yardsale thread lol

IkilledLassic I get that your thinking in doing so was incase you found something crazy like Bubble Bath Babes sealed and mint in the wild for a quarter but I think you started a tread here ;)

We'll have plenty of room for everyone to post their finds in this thread it won't be gone like the Wii and beside if people do come back and keep editing early posts later on they will just have to post again anyways to let people know that they updated an old post with what they recently found.

While I agree with the above, I will reserve also, just in case.

Look at the yard sale threads from past years, you people will see that there is no need to reserve a spot in the yard sale thread.
Listen to Fonewearl, idiots.
Were not going to page through the entire thread looking to see if someone edited their post and put new things in it. Were only going to check the new posts, editing a post does not make it show up as a new post.

Yeah I hear that but you never know what you just might find in the wild if you luck out. I myself haven't found anything video game related worth that much yet but I can look over the last 2-3 years and think back to probably about a donzen things I've found for about change to $3 that are worth about $25-50ish if you ask eBay.

I try to set my goals fairly low for hunting for games in the wild since nobody is going to find every rare/uncommon game even for a system that was popular like the NES.

My goal for this year will be to find a sealed NES game since I don't have anything sealed for the NES. Hopefully something good but I won't complain even if it's something that is shit as long as I can get it for a buck or two :)

My goal this year is to find an NES. That might not sound hard to you at all, but for a kid my age that isn't old enough to drive and who has parents who don't like the second-hand market it can be pretty challenging. I might have to end up just using... shopgoodwill. Yes, I said it.

Why the heck do you feel the need to reserve a spot, is it that darn important that people see your post first?

I've ran into a few 16-bit games sealed over the last few years one even being Street Fighter II for the SNES ;) IIRC the guy mentioned that it was a meant to be given as a gift or recieved as a gift or something along the lines of that.

I also asked about video games at one sale about 3 years ago and went over to the guys house and he had abunch of stuff all/mostly intellivision, 2600 including some accessories & IIRC a few games still sealed but he was asking $150 to start with so I ended up never following though with the deal as after thinking about it I passed as I figured I would never get to playing the games much (if ever) with everything else I have that I need to get to and it would end up being to big of a purchase out of nostalgia. I remember seeing one of the games with a tag that said .99, makes me wish I was smart enough to be trying to look for cheap/clearance game when I was younger during the 8-bit era or before.

I wouldn't expect much if I did luck out and find something sealed most likely something that nobody cared to open like Orb 3D :D I would hope for something really common or fairly common that I like (TMNT or Russian Attack would be nice) but being my luck if I do run across a sealed NES game the box would probably be smushed and the game would probably be Bases Loaded II.
