#12730854 The Official 2015 Yard Sale Thread Post your finds!

Posted by Indigo_Streetlight on 07 June 2015 - 05:53 PM

Well CAG, I didn't go out on Saturday morning due to being laid up with a 'roid; however, I did follow up a lead from last week's yard-sale action (without phone confirmation no less, I actually had to drive out without being sure whether my contact would be there). Fortunately he was, and like an expert magician he conjured a friend of his within 20 minutes. Needless to say I wasn't sure what to expect from this Dragon Warrior-like summoning-- though when Contact B brought out four tupperware bins that were barely portable from his car, I knew that groovy-time was about to occur. 
Okay, so maybe it wasn't all that easy. I knew right off the bat when facing a volume deal like this (a later count revealed nine systems and a little over 100 games in all) that a $5 or $10 offer wasn't going to fly. A part of me was tempted to look through the lot bit by bit with a piece of paper and pen just to get a handle on what was there. In situations like this, you don't want to insult the seller because they could come back with an enormous sum. Ultimately though I scrapped the full valuation idea or even looking at everything and pitched on what I saw so far: $60.
To which I quickly added that I could look some more. This was where it got tricky, since the seller showed no inclination one way or another and told me I could take my time. I could easily get caught in a situation of bidding myself up; what would I be comfortable paying?
After a time, I then asked the seller if they had any counter-offer thoughts. "One hundred dollars and it's yours," they said. Done.
So here's the neat thing about all of this, while I may not be able to sit squarely on my ass at the moment, this is the first time ever that I've encountered a Sega Saturn or Sega CD in the wild, over the course of my five years of active hunting and beyond. It was always, "Nah, I'll never break down and buy those systems unless they're bundled with games." NOW I HAVE DONE SO, IN USING YARD SALE POWERS IN TANDEM WITH VERY GENEROUS PEOPLE.
Note: Fuzzy pictures are of the highlights only; I won't bore you with the PS2 console, the n64 console, and the Dreamcast console. There's also a Wii which... HOW DARE YOU EXIST BESIDE THIS GLORIOUS SATURN?!?
Edit: Here's a list of the Sega Saturn games, as the pics may not give you the full impact.
- Dragon Force
- Command & Conquer
- Tetris Plus
- Mr. Bones
- Quake
- Sonic 3D Blast
- Shining the Holy Ark
- Tomb Raider (2x)
- Hexen
- D
- Saturn Bomberman
- Enemy Zero
- Braindead 13
- Lunacy
- Resident Evil
- Dark Savior
- Duke Nukem 3D
- Iron Storm
- Three Dirty Dwaves
- Bubble Bobble (also featuring rainbow islands)
- Crusader No Remorse
- Wipeout
- Bug Too!

#12481923 The Official Craigslist Finds Thread Vol. 2

Posted by strawyleader997 on 09 February 2015 - 02:11 AM

I just bought a lot of stuff from a guy who was selling his kids old stuff. It was all in a picture, with no descriptions of the items.

White Xbox 360 console with cords
SNES console with cords
about 300 pokemon cards(there are some good cards)
Pokemon special pikachu edition Gameboy game in box

In the picture, I thought the pokemon game was just complete, but when I picked the stuff up it turns out that it's SEALED! I only paid $80 for all of it, and the sealed Pokemon game sells for $250.

While not a yard sale find, this marked my first find of 2015. At our local thrift shop, it was told that everything by the dumpster was either garbage or things that the shop can't test. I started driving home and noticed a PS game case sticking out of the box and took a closer look. Grabbed it and threw it in the truck. Upon getting home, I had hit a motherload. In the box was the following:
Unreal Tournament 2004 - PC
Quake 4 - PC
Halo - PC
Call of Duty 4 - PC
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic - PC
Farcry 3 - PC
Star Ocean Till End of Time Collectors Edition - PS2
Dragonball Z Budokai 3 - PS2
Jak 2 - PS2
Jak 3 - PS2
Dragon Quest VIII Collector's Edition Edition - PS2
Devil May Cry 3 - PS2
Legacy of Kain Defiance - PS2
Arc the Lad - PS2
007 The World is Not enough - PS
Digimon Digital Card Battles - PS
Syphon Filter 2 - PS
3xtreme - PS
Croc - PS
Driver 2 - PS
Gex - PS
Gex 2 - PS
Gex 3 - PS
Monster Rancher 2 - PS
Rugrats - PS
Legend of Dragoon - PS
The best part of all this is I got to them right before it started raining!!!! Score!

Posted by STEVE05 on 17 October 2014 - 03:45 AM

I've had a pretty dry summer. Not much at the garage sales and absolutely nothing at the thrift stores. I've had about 5 weeks straight, going around 3-4 times a week, finding nothing interesting. I wasn't even finding over-priced games in the locked case. Just terrible.


Today I had the day off and decided to try my luck once again, I walked into the Goodwill and immediately seen this in the glass case...



I freaked out! The N64 is my favorite system of all time and the main one I collect for. I've always wanted a CIB system, but I've never even seen one in the wild. Unfortunately I couldn't see the price and expected it to be $99 because this is Goodwill and that's just what they do.


I flagged down an employee and after unlocking the case I was blown away by the price - only $25!! Plus I had a 20% off coupon bringing the price down to $20!


It's in beautiful condition. I can tell it's never been used. Both controllers are perfect. The cords haven't even been untangled.


It also came with three games - A Bugs Life, Goldeneye007 and Nascar 2000 - but who cares really.


So stoked to finally have this.

I know I haven't been posting lately because, well, I haven't found shit but I always check this thread and try to leave Likes when I can. Glad to see some people still finding great stuff!


EDIT: Also the side of the box still had some slight Christmas wrapping paper taped to it. So much nostalgia opening this up, seriously.
