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.

Like the Flea Market thread I apologize for any grammar or any other errors over the last this time 38 posts as proof reading all of this again just now before posting would be boring and as slow as I am doing so I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight with the time it would take me.

 

A few comments about this year, I was surprised I didn't find a single copy of Super Mario Kart or Mario Kart 64 besides any copies that were priced based on looking it up on ebayz at the flea market. I did find more GB/GBC Pokemon games then I normally do and this was the first year for me to really start seeing a decent amount of worthwhile Wii games. I've also gotten the vibe that some of the other yardsalers who buy video games in my area have stopped or slowed down while on Sundays it has gotten worse with more vendors who sell video games with prices based on ebay/amazon online or whatever and some of these types who will try and scoop up anything they deem worthy of reselling. One guy is far and away the worse with this and will even ask some of the other vendors that sell games cheap if they have any new games for sale that day as soon as he sees them show up and will camp out while they are bringing stuff out so he can bogart anything good.

 

Without counting it up I think I got to 800 then some yard sales total this year and gave out my number about 40 times not including something minor or stupid like if I got a system and left my number in case they found a cord that goes with the system that was missing. I ended up getting something out of leaving my number, getting a number or trading e-mails etc 3 times this year so that gives you an idea of how often it pans out for me.

10 Wii Games - 5
SNES With 16 Games & Nintendo Storage Cart - 25
 
I was interested in Zelda & Wii Sports but they wanted to get rid of everything and were asking 5. Zelda is only a case away from being comeplete, the rest of games are crap. SNES games were a buck a piece but said 25 for all of the SNES stuff and pointed out the missing av cord and took my offer of 20 then I also got the storage cart for $5.

Street Fighter EX 3 (Complete) - 1
Final Fantasy XIII Guide & 3 Complete Playstation 2 Games - 5
2 GBA SP Systems (One With Charger & One 101) With 12 GBA Games, Zelda LA (GBC) & Pokemon Red - 40
System Only GameCube (With Memory Card, GBA Player & SSBM In The System) With 10 Complete GameCube Games - 15
 
The guide was 2 and the PS2 games a buck each, this was all from the sale I got a bunch of games from Friday that I stopped back at on Saturday looking to grab the guide if it was still around and ended up also getting a few more games. The Game Boy stuff was 20 for the dark blue system with Zelda & Pokemon and 35 for the 101 system with charger and 12 GBA games. Tried out the systems and save batteries in the two GB games and told the sellers that I was interested in some stuff from both lots but pitched the idea of 35 for both lots to get rid of it all instead of parting out and making something between the two, they countered with 40 for both. For the GameCube stuff they offered to do $15 if I took everything (instead of 20 asking) which I took. Other two lone items were asking price.

Lego Batman (360, Complete) & Nightmare Creatures II (No Manual) - 1 & .50
Donkey Kong Country - 2
StarCraft (Complete), USB Controller (New), 4 Disk Only Games And Everything Else In The 2nd Picture - 60 something?
 
NSMB was 8 And Tecmo Bowl was 3, I offered 8 and was countered with 9. Asked about games and a few PS2 games & DKC were brought out, I offered a buck for DKC and the seller was thinking 3 and we meet in the middle. Everything else was at a yardsale in which most games were a buck each, PS3 games were 3 each and the USB controller was marked 2. I paid $70 total for all of the games I got and a few other things so I figure about 60~65 worth of that roughly in games. Every Extra Entend is UMD only, printed up cover. No maual for Star Ocean & Ninja Gaiden. Namco Museum Megamix, LBP2 and ICO SotC Collection are sealed. All other games are complete.

2 complete Wii games - 8
3 Complete Wii games & box only for NES system (price tag says 89.99 On NES Box) - 20
7 PS1 Games & 5 GameCube games - 30
 
The two Wii games were 5 each but took my offer of 8 for both. Asked about old games at a sale and the NES box was brought out. They had a Wii system out for sale with games but they were planning on selling the games seperately and were thinking 5 or 10 a game, I offered 20 for the 3 games and box which was taken. For the last 12 games, PS1 were a buck each and I was told that they were selling the GameCube system and games together (for 150) so I didn't want to shoot too low as to grease the wheels enough to let the GameCube games loose from the system bundle, they took my offer of 30 for the 12 games. You can't really see in the picture but the game on it's side is Crash Team Racing which doesn't include a manual, Metal Gear Solid is actually a crap Movie Gallery case and insert but does include the manual and unfornately that is not PSO I & II in the generic case, I forgot to take it out of the case for the picture and is actually a disc only The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The rest of the GC, PS1 games from this sale are complete.

175
 
The one house I got the Playstation game and 2 GBP systems at took my number and hinted at old Nintendo stuff. This stuff was the one son who was at the sale and another son who they wanted to check with who lived out of state that they wanted to check with before getting rid of. When I went back I ended up dealing with the one son who was at the yardsale. At first he had the NES stuff out and starting out thinking 150. He also had a N64 in a bag nearby I said I'd be interested in along with some new stuff around that he wasn't looking to get rid of yet (PS1, PS2, Xbox). IIRC I think I also saw a SNES controller or something SNES related and he ended up going upstairs and round up the SNES stuff, to get to the end of it after BSing with him for awhile about games we ended up at 175 which was all I had left aside from a few ones.
 
I didn't take a good picture of the systems but it's 4 systems with all hookups (2x NES systems). Anything extra you can't see isn't special, a few misc generic controllers. BSing with the guy he mentioned buying Crystalis at the place I used to rent NES games at and I did rent Crystalis at said place many years ago so this is the first time I got a game a a yardsale that I'm 100% certain I rented and played way back when.

Boxed N64 With 2 Games & 3 Memory Cards (Came With Grey Controller With Analog Stick In Good Shape, 4 MB Expansion & A 3rd Party RF Adapter) - 25
 
The GBA was 10 but took 7 when they couldn't find the charger. I asked about games and some Wii stuff was mentioned but in some twist the N64 stuff was brought out as the only thing found. I offered 20 which was countered with 25 which I agreed to but wanted to double check for everything only to notice the power adapter missing. They went in to look for it and couldn't find it and offered to take my number and call me after finding said cord. I said about about 20 now and I'll give the other 5 if you find it which was accepted.

Probably shot but I don't have Alien Trilogy & was willing to take a chance on Legend of Dragoon. Guide was .25 & a buck for the wireless adaptor. Last two things not mentioned were asking price.

Posted by FOnewearl on 23 May 2014 - 07:27 PM

Landstalker (cart only) 8 bucks and some change. I rarely buy genesis games that aren't CIB but this seems like a hard game to find. I could just print out the artwork as I have extra cases.

If your interested in playing it I'd say yes. I still remember seeing good reviews for this and Gunstar Heroes in the first issue of Diehard Gamefan I remember reading and ended up buying both of them. They are both some of my personal favorites on the Genesis.

Heavy Nova (Complete), Rock 'N Roll Racing (No Manual) & Castlevania - 13
Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong 64 & Space Station Silicon Valley - 15
SMS & 2600 Stuff - 5
Everything Else - 25
 
The 2 Genesis games were 2 each and Castlevania was 10 took 13. The next 3 games were 6 each but took 15 for the 3. These games came from your somewhat typical reseller types. No manual with Hang-On & Astro Warrior, Star Raider is missing the game itself & E.T. is complete (interesting weekend to find this). For everything else I asked about the NES stuff and it was 20 but the guy said I could have all of the game stuff which was in a plastic bin for 30 to which I countered with 25 which was taken. All of the NES games on the left have manuals. Pinball Quest hidden in the top left and if the NES games are hard to make out Snoopy's Silly Sport Spectacular! is the only other one that isn't really common or crap with Tyson & SMB3 being the best of the rest. Unfortunately the blue Game Gear doesn't have the battery covers has this is my first time finding a blue system.

Atomic Purple Game Boy Color - 1
Everything Else - 20
 
The GBC was actually from a lone sale near my place that I walked to on 4-19-14. Asked about video games and this was brought out to which my offer of a buck was taken. Everything else was at one sale, the Xbox stuff was 15 and the Game Gear stuff was 5 and the PC games were a buck each to which I offered 20. The Madden game is missing the disk and Final Fantasy VII I'm pretty sure is missing one disk, it has 3 disks in it with an open spot but I couldn't remember if it was 4 disk or 3 like the PS1 version. IIRC the rest of the Xbox & PC games were complete.
