Recently, my parents decided to remodel their bedroom including their walk-in closet which was known as Santa's Hiding Spot growing up. The closet had become incredibly cluttered with years of clothing and other things that get tossed in the closet to get out of the way. In order to complete the renovation, they had to completely empty the closet of over 25 years of clutter.
During the clean out process, they came across one of my Christmas presents that never made it under the tree - a mint condition, sealed Original Gameboy Basic Set. This set was just the system and four AA batteries - no games were included. The set had shipped directly from Nintendo - there was evidence of the packing slip that had been affixed directly to the back of the box. The Nintendo silver seals are on both sides of the box.
My parents don't know if they were punishing me by not giving it to me or they just forgot. This had to have been Christmas/Birthday gift from sometime between 1990 - 92.
I will post pictures of the actual box once I bring it back from my parent's house.
In the meantime, I am looking for suggestions for what to do with the Gameboy. I actually still have a functioning Gameboy and a few of the core games, but I don't play it. I am not really interested in keeping it unless there will be some great value to hanging on to it for another 25 years.
I've seen a few Google results for the price/value of the Gameboy but I am looking for a Cheapass perspective on what I should do with this ancient gaming device.
