I appreciate the advice. I didn't see the guy today. My area, which has a few universities, gets extremely competitive with games. Most of the game buyers I've met have been decent. It's unfortuanate someone like Acura guy can't wait his turn.
Anyways today was weirdest day of the season.
I got up and left early as there were a number of game and comic sales advertised. I was the first one at many of them, and almost everything was overpriced, however, all the sellers were really cool.
Having no luck, I hit a few community sales and was ttold I missed out on a big game bundle. Other games I saw weren't great, and ended up with a few dollar 360 games that I wasn't sure if I had. Also forgot to check game cases and ended up buying 2 PSP cases without games for $1 apiece.
So I head home and see this yard sale on the side of a busy main road at around 11am. The girl running the sale tells me she doesn't have video games but she does have some old toys and pulls out a Return of the Jedi Ewok still in the package. She sells it to me for a $1 and I continue to look at her stuff and ask her again about games. She comments her brother had a Sega CD and she walks into her garage and she pulls out a Sonic CD (pink disc) and a NES controller. She sells me those for $3 and I start to leave when she yells for me that she found her Sega CD. She pulls out a large box (so Im expecting a Model 1) and hands it to me. Its a complete CDX! She sells it to me for $21 as she isn't sure its working (this one turns out to work great). I am going to check with her tomorrow as she said she has tons of crap to take out and may have a lot more games and maybe some G1 Transformers now that she thinks about it.
So after my wife meets me to drop my car off for an oil change, we drive home and see a yard sale in my very well traveled neighborhood. I have never had a game find pass 8am and I know a number of resellers hit my neighborhood early every Saturday. We see overpriced old games at this yard sale and I spot a torn apart DS case with Pokemon on it. I ask if they have any more games and they say no and then I ask for any Pokemon stuff. Guy walks out with Pokemon cards (something I dont see anymore as stores offer $60 per 1000 commons in my area) and theres some EX cards and bunch of cards my wife likes. Guy sells them for $5 to get rid of them and then hands me a case with a DS and some empty pokemon DS game cases. He sells me the DS lot for $20. In the car, my wife counts 27 games, 11 of which are main series Pokemon games (with a bunch of side games and notable GBA games). This was found close to 1pm which is crazy.
Definitely my best 'late day' finds in a few years. I'm glad to have a working CDx which takes up a lot less space than the Sega Genesis I have plugged in up in my game cave.
