Thanks for worrying about me, the banning was a mistake from a compromised mod account.

 

To celebrate, here are some lost yard sale finds!

 

Hopefully I didn't post these in 2010, but they arent in the completed folder so...

 

I think I paid $7 or $8 total, but it is 4 years old, so I could be off. "The Game Plan" is still sealed.

I can't wait for garage sales to start up again around here.  I'm moving next Saturday, so a few new horizons might be nice.

Wow, that's really surprising. Anyone know why?

A Funcoland employee started moderating the forum.

Went to my first yard sales in awhile. My finds:

 

A bag of Pokemon/MTG cards for $2

The Magic cards were pretty worthless, mostly stuff from Ice Age block and some from the Invasion block. I stopped playing seriously after the Invasion block. Most of the Pokemon cards were from Base Set 1/Jungle/Fossil and there are quite a few good rares, but I don't know if they have any value today. Nice to have 3 Scythers though since I could never find these when I played competitively as a kid. 

 

Halo, Books 1-3 for $1

http://www.amazon.co...h/dp/0345473043

 

Kid was offering 50 cents each for a book but since I bought the cards and some other books for my nephew, he accepted for $1. The sleeve for the books is kinda worn but I couldn't say no to this for $1. 

 

The downer for me is the sales that had video games were pretty much picked over. A couple sales had some video game cheat code books so I asked about games and they had already been sold or didn't have any to sell. One sale had a :360: Prince of Persia 2008 LE and :360: PoP Forgotten Sands for $5 each but I passed.

I found a couple of moving sales in the area this weekend, so I decided to check them out and got pretty lucky! First sale had a couple zip-lock bags filled GBA and PSP stuff. I got 2 GBA SPs, a PSP 1001, and games for each including some older Pokemon stuff for $15. I actually haggled them up a little bit, since I would have felt bad for only taking it for $8 like they initially proposed.

At the next sale I got a load of Gamecube and and PS2 stuff for $40. The systems and some of the games will be going to MAGFest, while Twilight Princess and the strategy guides will be going into my collection. The rest I'll be using for tradebait.

Pretty good start to the season!

^I can't understand the logic is requesting to pay MORE for something than asking price.

 

They have access to the internet.  They could look up fair market prices.

 

If you were buying a car would you ask to pay above sticker price?  I'd think not.

Eh, it's still a steal for me at that price. And knowing what these things are worth I feel a little bad completely fleecing people, so a pay a little extra to avoid a guilty conscience. Besides, it looks like I'll already be able to sell junk games for at least what I paid for the lot.

I'm pretty sure that reverse-haggling is grounds for your CAG license being revoked.

I've reverse haggled before and told people flat out they can get more for stuff. 99% of the time I ask them their price, so if I counter lower it seems routine.

$1 each, just thought they looked cool and were in good shape

80s Robocop Horizon model I think I paid $2, possibly $3 I bundled this with a M$ office home and student 2007 that still had an active key!! ($150 retail BB tag on it). I also bought some sealed boardgames not pictured, since they are not video game/fantasy related. ;)

It's Jane's Addiction Soul Kiss...the one on the right is sealed, so I put in in a comic bag to keep the dust off. I have to bust out GB and check the pieces. I bought it on sight, so hopefully it is close to complete!

 

I still have about 10 posts til I catch up and to tide you all over until the season starts. :mrgreen:

I always enjoy your posts. Especially knowing how close it all is. I dont go too far your way though, takes too long and I work too early to spend that much time driving.

Didn't get much today, but managed to grab Kingdom Hearts I & II, Ratchet & Clank, and Ratchet & Clank Going Commando, all black label. KH games were complete, R&C two were missing manual. I'll probably be keeping them as I want to beef up my PS2 collection.

 

Also got a few DVDs for flipping purposes.

Found magic at a sale today. Walked up and immediately saw the guitar and picked it up after I saw the $10 price on it. Then I asked if they had any music or games items and brought out a binder of about 50 CDs. Offered $15 for the lot and was able to pick it all up.

This past Saturday was lovely here in Baltimore (though it sucks right now), so I got the chance to go out to a few sales! Unfortunately, I busted my phone last week so I don't have pics , but here's the run-down:

 

At the first sale I picked up Die Hard Trilogy (PS1), House of the Dead 2 (DC), and Project Overkill (PS1) for $3 to go to the MAGFest inventory. The family was super nice and I got to talking to them about games, turns out they still have and play all their old stuff. They also let me walk away with some old monitors (for MAGFest) and the Miami Vice board game for my goofy friends.

 

At the second, I picked up a couple of Dreamcast controllers and some random Dreamcast games for $5. Noteworthy games include Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2. All this is going to MAGFest.

 

Third yardsale had a bunch of PS1 and PS2 games. I picked up Kinetica, Mercenaries, Tony Hawk's Underground 2, Digimon World 1-4, Kingsley's Adventure, and a few others for $14. I checked the prices on the Digimon Worlds and realized they're probably worth a good bit, so I think I'm gonna to put them up eBay in order to afford a copy of Demon's Crest someone local is selling.

 

I thought the fourth yardsale was going to be big score, but it turned out to be a bust. An $80 Wii, some Guitar Hero games, and some sports games. To top it all off, there was apparently a yard sale going on right near my house that had old Sega, Nintendo, and 3DO stuff that I completely missed due to my broken phone. Le sigh.

Nice pickup on the Marvel vs Capcom 2 for the Dreamcast, those go for a pretty good chunk of change last I checked.

Yes! I was really happy to find it considering it is older than most CAGs. ;) I think it is 1978 copyright

I'm going to hold onto it. I am a hoarder and I keep a lot of stuff, but I do like oddball stuff like that. I still have some Mr Men PVC figures from the 80s somewhere around here from when I was young (I think they were form arby's) I know I have Mr Bump and Mr Tickle and a few others.

No worries! If you decide though to sell or trade let me know.

I have never even seen one of these in the wild, guess that's what I get for living in BFE.  You said you only got it for "D"  and Strahl, do you already own the system?

 

First yard sale of the year happened a few blocks from my house.  Guy had a shitton of NASCAR races he recorded on VHS, roughly 10 paper ream boxes full.  Says he converted all of them to DVD.  I asked about his DVD recorder and he goes inside and brings out a Magnavox DVD/RW that he sells to me for $15.  Maybe now I will convert all those 1990's Bulls games that I recorded on VHS.
