OK, I know this is cheapassgamer and don't really expect anyone on here to buy this lot, but I am posting it anyway. Feel free to bid on it if you want though.

Also, please no flaming on the shipping. I have zero idea what it would cost to ship 200 games so I went with what sellers of similar lots have set for shipping prices. If a CAG wins this auction I will work with them on the shipping so you don't pay more than you have to and I will knock 5% off the final bid price (if you join just because of this, sorry......no discount).

Thanks!

EDIT: I've got a nod to CAG in the listing (a favorite joke around here) and in one of the pics!

dropped a cheapass bid - I'll keep an eye on this to see what happens ;)
Oh, you might want to drop a PM or something to fatherofcaitlyn - hes a reseller and you don't have a lot of crap in that lot.

Yeah, it's a lot of money, but I don't think it's a lot of money for 200 games considering the average cost per game. ;)

I'll accept full blame - hes asked me for items before and I don't have enough games to make it worth sending out so I decline but he seems like a decent enough guy.

You are probably right, but 1) I want to be rid of this stuff. $$$ is not as much of an issue as just getting rid of it, 2) who's to say that I would separate them into the "right" lots. In other words, I am not putting 20 lots of 10 games each up on eBay so a 50+ game lot likely will have a bunch of stuff you don't want too. This is primarily for collectors or resellers.

I posted most of this stuff in the trading forums so CAGers could have bought what the wanted then. What didn't sell, you see here.

Personally, I don't think you are gonna hit that $1000 reserve. Too high of a proportion of crap games in that lot. Nothing against you at all, I just think it won't go that high...hope somebody proves me wrong though!

Yep CAGs had first pick - eBay's getting the sloppy seconds so theres a bunch of crap but at $5 each, they can afford to be crap ;)

oh and before anybody starts yelling "shill bidder" on me - I plan on seriously watching/bidding on this and will definitely be ponying up if I win throuigh some miracle :rofl: - (Emergency student aid to the tune of 10% of our scholarships came through last week - after I sold all my shit off :bomb: )

Yeah, you might be right (although I hope you're wrong ;) ). No offense taken. I certainly realize that alot of it is crap, but if the reserve isn't met I have the option still to sell to the high bidder or take slide's advice and break it up and relist. Like I said, the $$$ isn't really the issue.

Hey, best of luck to you, there still might be somebody out there that wants it to fill out a collection or sell in a mom and pop store!

Heheh...I don't expect to win, and I'm surely not going to hit your $1000 reserve, but hopefully this will send bidding into a frenzy!!!

Hot damn...was that another CAG that outbid me? Otherwise, you've got yourself a pretty good start, not too far from that reserve!

I know you said not to flame you on the shipping charge, but check the rates for Media Mail on USPS. That whole lot could probably be mailed for less than $20. 50 pounds runs about $16. Depends on just how much it weighs. 70-80 pounds total maybe? (Figure 5-6 ounces per game?) But it can definitely be hard to estimate something like that. Tricky when you can't get an exact weight.

Oh, and if you are planning to go with Priority or Parcel Post then it will be quite a bit to mail this.

And good luck with the auction. Already up over $700, I think you could hit that reserve for sure. I probably would have at least split it out by system, but this is an easy quick way to get rid of them.

Yeah, media would be way cheaper but there is no way I am sending these Media mail. Plus, I am sure I would get questioned on the contents and who knows if they even would allow me to ship games media. Then I would be screwed cause I'd have to pony up the $$$ for some other method while only getting paid $20 or so.

I'll probably go UPS or FedEx. I am assuming $125 would be enough to cover shipping using one of them.

I didn't consider your comment flaming anyway. Constructive feedback is cool, the non-flaming request was for the people wanting to come in here and say, "OMG, you are totally ripping people off on shipping!!!!"

geez, if you weren't ripping me off on shipping, I'd probably bid higher. :roll:
What happened to your SAVER discount option? :D

They should allow that to go Media since it is all CDs and DVDs (which is what I would tell the clerk if I was asked) but yes it is YMMV on not getting a particularly assholish postal clerk. Putting insurance of $1200 on it may raise an eyebrow. "You have $1200 worth of books in there?"

Of course you could also print your own Media Mail label from PayPal and just check it on the counter and run :)

I have no idea how much Fedex or UPS would run.

And FYI you have 'Insurance Not Offered' on the shipping details instead of 'Included' or 'Required'. Not a real big deal as you explain that it's included in the listing and I think it's too late to change it now.

I'm gun shy to sell really expensive stuff with PayPal after I got cheated by some fucking thief in NC. My advice is to take the money out of the account right when you mail and be prepared to walk away from the account if PayPal grants a charge back for some asinine reason.

Excellent advice on all counts. I must have "insurance not offered" as an automatic setting on my account. Doh! It is too late to change it, but no biggie I don't think. It's included in the flat shipping fee. That sucks you got screwed with paypal. That's why I am hoping a respectable eBayer (like fatherofcaitlyn) wins this one. Maybe I should have put some buyer restrictions on it. Oh well.....
