I know, right? :lol: Amazingly, that one wasn’t the first I hit today! I’m on vacation, and it’s tourist season right now. I think the yard sales I stopped at today are probably open all day and all week so long as there’s good traffic.

I have NEVER had a find that reach the level of awesomeness that I've seen in this thread in the past. UNTIL NOW!

About a month ago I saw a good amount of gaming items for an estate sale down the street from me. Sega Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, PlayStation 1 / 2. SNES, N64 (Owner came by and pulled these for their kids).

But I went and got offered a really awesome price. Here's the haul:

Boxed Sega Saturn
Sega Nomad
Sega Genesis 2
Game Boy Pocket
Game Boy Color
Game Boy Printer & Camera

Several CIB Saturn games.
Around 20 PS1 games, including a Toys R Us variant of Tekken 2, Jackie Chan Stuntmaster, and 10 Longbox games. A complete, black label set of Twisted Metal games.
Around 10 Dreamcast Games (SCORE)
Game Boy Games
Genesis Games (with a MINT Hyperstone Heist Manual, alas no game)

Some boxed, unopened new Lego sets.

Really just astounded. Here's some photos that I hope work too!

I decided to keep virtually most of it. Dad wanted some of it so I pulled some of it aside for him.

Good score! I dig all the Sega stuff.

Btw, I can see your real name when I follow that Google drive link. I don't know if you care about this or not. Just a heads up. Privacy and all that.

Thanks samson. I was really really excited to find what I found. Kept a lot of it. Passed a bunch of other stuff to others. Unlikely I'll come across another deal like this any time soon.

It's okay that my name's on there, I appreciate the caution, I wasn't aware.

I paid $580 in total. The Sega games were all marked $3, and the PlayStation games were marked $5. The nomad was $65!

For $250 CAD or $190 USD. I know this is super expensive in America as it's a Canadian exclusive.
