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.
