Glad the GW by my work has had some decent stuff recently because I havent been hitting up my other thrifts since getting the full time position at work in November. Im gonna pick up on that and yardsales pretty soon, wanting to get out again!

 

Grabbed these after work, $2 for the N64 card and $3 for the PS1 card. Havent checked the saves yet

Why would you buy playstation memory cards? Are the saves worth something? I'm just curious as I have a large amount of them. I just put them in an empty baby wipe box when I buy systems.

 

That is a slowdive protip: Buy two boxes of baby wipes. Use one up and transfer the wipes from box 2 to box 1 (so box 2 is never near any poo). Use box 2 for memory cards, GB games, etc.

I thought you were gonna suggest using the wipes to clean your hands or maybe things you found at the sales. (Sorry, no kids.)

I doubt the saves would make it worth any more than a blank card, it was more of I hadnt checked to see if they still load/hold a save. And its always nice to have a memory card around to add to a system bundle Im trying to sell/trade. (the card did have a 40hr FF7 save on it, if anyone was wondering!)

I do that too. The point being the empty container has a use. I like the huggies ones because they have a little rubber-like slot, so you can just drop them in.

Found me Metroid Prime Trilogy Wii (still sealed) for $6.60 after 40% off.

That's another one worth about $100.

You could also buy a box of wipes instead of 2 tubs. Some of the Huggies boxes come with 2 resealable bags of wipes and a brand new tub.

Did I pick up a bootleg copy of Street Fighter II SNES? I bought it since it was only $3.

NES, actually, judging by the shape of the cart.

Bluuuggghh, got super excited the other day at Goodwill when I spied Tomba behind the counter, but it turned out to be the back case only. Suuuuuuuper disappointing.

Welp I had a working $10 fatty PS2 but of course I felt like I had to open it up and give it a decent cleaning............shouldve just opened it enough to spray some compressed air and call it a day! Ripped 2 ribbon cables trying to plug them back into the cd drive and power buttons. Just said  Fuck and put it all back in the case and screwed it back together. Not even worth dicking around with further. Ill find another! :wall:

I have a complete set of this game but I bought it for co-op. It comes with box, led sensors, straps, guncon, and manuals. Just need the game (probably will get it at gamestop for $5) to complete it.

Think the ps move controllers work for this game too.

Wonder what other games work on the guncon?

It sucks but only Time Crisis 4/Time Crisis: Razing Storm/DeadStorm Pirates works with GunCon3.

Sounds like a lot of work to set it up, too. I'll stick with the Move.

Bag of figures was $5, sadly nothing older than 2002. The 2 Pokemon toys still light up which is pretty cool. Really nice looking complete copy of Wii Sports for $3. Nonpickups- $15 for a Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles Wiimote gun attachment, it was in the box but I didnt see the faceplate or the Umbrella analog stick nub. They also had an Apple watch in the box for $250....its $270 at Target

Been looking g or the old school Mikey with the spinning hand/arm. I think it was made around the 1990s.

I found at a salvation army operation genesis pc sim game, but no booklet and box. They had resident evil 10th anniversary music cda610-vsp along with transformers, but did not pickup due to wrong cds in them.
Pickup a Nerf star wars rogue one captain blaster for $3.99 new in box. Batteries still work and makes cool blaster sounds.

Harman Kardon Soundsticks and subwoofer, dusty and suppose to be used with a Mac since the only input is USB but they sound fine just using them with my phone and a USB OTG adapter- $10

 

Double checked the little furniture corner and I saw the red DS Lite sitting there. No dings, scratches, or any problems. Has the stylus and GBA cartridge. Clean AF!- $10

I went to return a ps2 to goodwill that was broken, only to find out that they no longer accept returns. They only do exchanges within 7 days now. I can rarely find any good deals there as it is, and no one ever mentioned it whenever I did buy something.

Digging through a stack of DVD's at the AmVets thrift store, I noticed a single Wii U case sticking out near the bottom. To my great amusement it turned out to be none other than...

I remembered reading about how bizarrely high this game was selling for so I had to grab it. :lol:

Picked up a couple gba games at a garage sale today. But my favorite find so far this summer was today.
Finally finished my halo steel book collection.
Went to a pawn shop that likes to wheel and deal on games and got
Halo 3 collectors edition complete xbox 360
Mech assault 2 xbox
Starsky and hutch xbox
For $10. Probably overpaid a little but I'm glad to finally have the steel book at a reasonable price. Didn't need the game as I already own it multiple other ways.

Interesting find today. About 5 minutes after walking in to my old regular GW, a cart came out with a bunch of anime looking and plain white boxes.

They were all Cardfight Vanguard cards, a ton of them. I know nothing about them, but for $30, I figured it was worth the chance.

Almost all cards are in protectors, duplicates bundled together. The person that owned this stuff easily spent 1000s of dollars on it.

The only things I passed on were a few boxes with empty protector cases. Those all got snatched up by a neckbeard about 10 minutes after I threw those back into a cart.

Now comes the fun of looking up each card type. Why do I do this to myself?5d7b38b8ac706dc84db429e67bd76df5.jpg9d12e245a4e6938e2da50200e0a31ebf.jpgafd93ac443cf17f110680730a519f6fe.jpg

If years of playing Yu-Gi-Oh! has taught me anything, it's that that collection of cards is either worth a fortune or 5$; nothing in between.  Though, the fact that these seem to have come from a pretty heavy collector makes me think it'll be the former.
