There are some really nice finds listed here.  I am impressed.  My rarest finds for cheap would probably be Tagin' Dragon for $5 and Chubby Cherub for either $5 or $10.... I can't remember which of the two prices it was.

3.99 for persona 1, complete in box mint condition.  

10 dollar for suikoden II (saw how rare it is decided to hit up some pawn shops and low and behold I found it first try..)

5 dollars for eihander

5 dollars for bayonetta 2

7 dollars each for great condition with box legend of zelda and complete in box with manual zelda II the adventure of link.  They didn't even put stickers on them, a paperclip with the prices stuck on the corner.

5 dollars each for complete in box with manual great condition Mario party 2, 3, super smash bros, around 7 years ago on Craigslist, didn't expect them to come in boxes... Sold mario party 2 and 3 for 120 each a few months ago.

not games but got 2 simpsons pop at a thrift shop this year (4.99) ... they weren't really pretty so I didn't want to get them, then decided to check them out on ebay, going for 130-150+. Bought them and sold off ebay for around 100+ each.

Edit: bought clayfighter sculptor's cut for 5 dollars 9 years ago... Didn't know the price shot up by so much...  Thank you new found site and knowledgeable members of the community.

Edit 2: Also found out the Flintstones the surprise at dinosaur peak is a rare game... Got it for 4.50 in 2011...

There have been others, but I guess those are the most notable ones.

Joining this forum and reading everyone post has made me richer... Got quite the rush when I realized the value of those two games...

Apparently this I paid $6 for and wasn't aware it was like an $80+, Digital Press R6 until tonight:



Like, the cheapest sold listing I could find for a loose cart was something like $78 and they went up from there.


I also have Radical Rex (another R6) but it's apparently not nearly as sought after so it only goes for around $15.

Well, I have a new contender to replace my $5 Aero Fighters (SNES).  Let's just say I paid about 5% of actual value.

Not all of these are actually rare, but the deals are!!

Two ebay purchases around 2011-2012, Bronkie the Bronchiasaurus on SNES and Clay Fighter Sculptor's Cut for around $40 each. They shot up in value soon after. I guess that was just good timing.

A flea market purchase that fits the same category of inflation-based score, a CIB Friday the 13th on NES for $14 around the same time period.

Conker's Bad Fur Day, $3 from the local pawn. I loved it when they just slapped a quick price on whole lots that came in.

Faria on NES, $3 from the flea market, snatched from under a reseller's nose, also grabbed a few more games from the same pile

Dreamcast with two controllers and a VMU, $5 from the flea market

NES advantage controllers and SNES fighter sticks, $1 each on multiple occasions

Skullmonkeys on PS1 and Zelda 1, $20 from a nice flea market seller who always cut my cousin and I good deals

$2 for a CIB Space Quest IV. One of my very few PC pickups.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine for N64, $4 after some haggling. (dude already had it priced low lol)

Neat Punch-Out promotional knit beanie which I've seen evidence of only 1 sold ever on the internet, $1- Goodwill

From last year, Tengen Tetris for $15. Dude selling some NES games had zero idea of actual value and was just making up numbers for each game. I knew I'd win no matter what he threw out.

And the crown jewel, a minty lot of 20 NES, SNES and PS1 games, almost all CIB, $30. Featuring CIB Megaman X, loose Castlevania Dracula X, loose Castlevania III, CIB Final Fantasy 1, CIB Tales of Destiny. Some of you might remember when I posted that, it was rad.

Also some finds I bore witness to, Cart and Box for Truxton on Genesis, from a FB marketplace game lot. And a free Castlevania Adventure for GB. Don't know why the guy just gave it to my pal but hey, it was a good score.

My rarest find in the wild has been changed now to this find I had this summer at a garage sale down the street from my house.

He had 2 systems and about 18 games.  I only had 25 on me so I talked him into 1 system and 5 games for 25. 

I almost cried when I got it back to my car. LOL

That's a crazy find cverz. It's hard to find people that don't check everything on eBay these days.
