NICE!!! Gotta be one of the GOAT find ever!!!

 

Brought memories when I found the holy grail - dagger of UNCHARTED 2 FORTUNE HUNTER COLLECTORS EDITION - only 200 made I believe (complete set goes for $5,000 to $10,000 on eBay last time I checked) at Goodwill for $7.99 7 years ago. I sold it a couple years ago for $1000 cash locally. No regret because it was purchased by a hardcore video game collector. 

 

Here's a thread about my dagger find - https://www.cheapass...er-at-goodwill/

I bought a CIB sega CD model 2 for $100 shipped on eBay, and it got me wondering:

Was there ever a combo / dual sega cd and genesis bundle sold? I swear I remember a box that had both the sega cd model 2 and the genesis included, but I can’t find any pics of it online whatsoever. I can only find pics of regular sega cd boxes.

It’s not the CDX or x’eye either. Anyone know?

Couldnt remember what I last posted on here. Had some good finds the past week or so. Walked into GW after work like last Monday (10/14) and the girl at checkout said, "Hi, ....hey hun shes getting ready to put some game stuff in the case. Good timing."  She happens to be there everytime I buy something so she knows what Im looking for. I walk over and do a little glance, all I saw was an AtGames Sega for $20....hard pass and a $6 DualShock....no thanks, still have 3 in my extras box.  I walk around, find nothing, walk back up and check the case one more time since the girl was done putting stuff in there. I see the controllers first, $6 apiece. Then the games. Goldeneye was on top marked $9.... I said "ugh....here we go". Asked to look at the stack expecting sports games, turned out to be a good stack. Priced higher than what they should be for donations but still a deal for these games! Plus I rarely see non Wii/DS Nintendo stuff put out! 

 

Went back on 10/17 and see a bunch of DS/3DS games in the case. Mostly shovelware games. Grabbed Pokemon-$9,  Kirby Triple Deluxe- $6, Kirby Super Star Ultra- $3. Looked in the other case and they had the Xbox Design Lab controller for $15. After taking it apart, cleaning it up, and bending the metal post for the battery back in place it seems to work great! I went on XBDL and made the same controller, wouldve been like $90!

 

Went in today and they had a bunch of PS2/360/PS3/Wii meh games or okay games but missing booklets. At least they were all $4 apiece this time! They wanted $15 for Ninja Gaiden NES, naw! Grabbed a sealed 8 pack of 60 Watt spiral lightbulbs for $6.

Grabbed this Pokemon thing for $1 and a work shirt for $2 at a small thrift store. I guess someone was mad about my recent pickups because now they want $65 for a fat PS2 with 2 controllers, cables, and 7 common games.... The girl asked if I wanted to look at it and im just like, "not really. Ive bought PS2s from this store for $10-$20 apiece and those games would be $3 or $4 apiece...."

I decided to kill some time between yard sales this Saturday and stopped by Savers, and was surprised to find everything in the store was 50% off. They had a few N64 bundles and I grabbed this one for $100. Kind of pricey for a thrift store, but I've been looking for this model of N64 so I can mod it and the games were worth it.

Not a terrible deal. If everything works say the system is $50, controllers $20 each, and the games are about $120, you got much more than you paid.

Great find PimpBot2000! I wish I the GW stores where I live had those kinds of sweet deals. Most of the gaming consoles that end up at the stores are overpriced.

 

My recent finds:

Roto Grip Riot and Brunswick ball bag combo (bowling equipment finds have been great for me this year)

Madden NFL 09 :360:

Madden NFL 12 :360:

NBA 2K13 :360:

Guitar Hero III :360:

Rocksmith 2014 Edition :360:

Resistance 3 (case only) :ps3:

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 (case only) :360:

 

Lots of books

Left early from work and scored me another copy of Radiant Dawn this year. I also bought Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess, and Benjamin Button Blu-ray film (I heard it's good) all for $4 each and game discs look almost perfect.

Not too much this week. $2 apiece- copy of High Score: The Illustrated History Of Electronic Games book and a brand new 25ft Cat5e ethernet cable which Ill use for my Switch and probably my tv when Im watching Disney+ or Hulu.

 

Edit 11/29/19- $3 console only Wii. After using the air compressor on it I grabbed the cables from one of the other Wiis and turned it on. Appears to work just fine. Hit that eject button and Just Dance 2017 popped out. Always love when theres a game inside the drive of a console that has the eject style drives! Its like a little game itself! "Will there be something in there???"

PS1 Diablo would be an easy $50 on Ebay. $5 is an excellent price!

I think the Strategy Guide for it has some value too.

$30 total. Neither ac adapter taped to the PS2 actually goes to it! Turns out the HP adapter is worth around $30 though. Kingdom Hearts had been sitting in the case marked $15 for a week. Ill take it for 75% green stickers though!

Last post update- someone did pay $30 for the HP ac adapter and someone paid $80 for that router!

 

Yesterdays pickups- $9. Games arent that special but are complete and were $1.50 apiece! Pucks were $1 apiece. Rounded up to $9 for some donation. Blue puck is signed by Bob Plager. Not sure who thought blue marker on blue puck was a smart idea!

That looks to be late 80's early 90's.  I still have my '89 GT Vertigo.

I found the same one on bmxmuseum.com. 1993 Dyno Air "purple splash". Everything is "Dyno" or "GT" except for the Vans handlebar grips, Freaky Redline tires, and Mongoose pegs. Im probably going to take it all apart and really clean everything sometime soon. Keeping an eye out on Ebay for replacement decals, havent seen the exact same ones....I do kinda dig the used look though. Its like "yeah we rode this thing and its got scrapes on the brakes and handlebars!"

 

I remember a couple buddies back in the day had silver Airs, one with red lettering one with blue lettering. Guy had this really nice spice orange GT Performer that we were all jel of! I finally got that Dyno that my parents wouldnt buy!
