Go back and buy them GPK cards. Non sport cards are at a high right now. Sports cards are at a low.

I agree, I only meant to go for the GPK cards. Do you have a guesstimate on how many of the card in the mix were GPK?

Stopped at one on my way home from work this afternoon and bought a box full of 90's punk and grunge CD's from an older lady for 3$, she also had boxes of sports cards and garbage pail kids, but her kids took the Nintendo and Sega with them...

I am going to be quite disappointed with you if the Garbage Pail Kids were cheap and you left them behind lol

 

You should pick them up if your passing by the sale tomorrow and they are still around if they are about as cheap as the CDs were.

Any plans for the Commodore 64? Is that straight up E-bait or will you sell it right here on CAG?

Me? If so I'm keeping the C64 & 128

Dude, you killed it this year!  Nice find on H.E.R.O., it's pretty rare and brings about $30 last I saw.  Looks like you found quality and value pretty much every week. 

 

I get depressed seeing these types of posts because that's the type of finds I would get here 2 years ago.  I think I had 3 maybe 4 good weekends in yard sales this year and flea markets barely have anything other than overpriced garbage anymore. 

 

H.E.R.O. is one of my personal favorites on the 2600 so I was happy to find it and this is the only copy I've seen in the last 10 years. Some bad or decent weeks at the flea market but I was as lucky as I would expect to be in 2014. I did have a few days yardsaling where I found nothing but then would get lucky on Saturday if I struck out Friday or if the yardsale were lackluster I'd do better at the flea markets or vice versa.

 

Seriously! Are you the only person in your area that buys games? How can you have this many good finds (especially since I assume you yard sale before going to the flea market)?! I'm so jealous. Congrats on all the awesome hauls.

 

Thanks, I don't go to any yardsales before going to the flea market. About me being the only person buying games - I did comment about this in post #2098 in the YS thread (2nd paragraph). Some of the stuff I got at the flea market I would certainly say I was lucky to be the first one to come across with the number of Johnny come lately resellers interested in video games at the flea market the last 2-3 years.

Damn, posting all those picture must've been tedious, I barely have patience to set one picture up lol.

 

I had them all ready to go but have been lazy about posting them. It's more then enough work doing all that but I was keeping up with it week to week.

 

Damn dude, that's an amazing haul for the summer! There's been too much competition in Baltimore lately, and I consider myself lucky to get the few big lots I *have* found.

 

It seemed like you did good this year IMO, it must be a grass is greener on the other side thing going on :D

 

I also forgot to mention some of the picture ain't the best so if anyone actually cared I can point out any games they can't make out in the pictures.
