Welcome to my newest blog series, happily called the "Collector's Dilemma". In this weekly series, I will give a short introduction and then turn to you, the readers, to get your opinions on a very important topic to the collecting community.

What to keep, oh what to keep?

What to keep, oh what to keep?

Getting poll results. Please wait...

As collectors, we all face the inevitable scenario of duplicates. Some of us insist on keeping everything just in case something happens to the other one, but most of sell or trade off one of the others. I don't know about the rest of you, but I scrutinize both pieces and first check for any variations; assuming they're both the same, I keep the higher quality one and sell the lesser one. However, with my recent acquisition of a near mint boxed Power Pad,  I've come to a serious dilemma. See, the problem is that I already have a boxed Power Pad, though the box is in poor condition.
So now, you're probably wondering what the dilemma is. Keep the near mint one and sell the crappy one, case closed. But here's the kicker; the poor condition is the one from my childhood, yep the same Power Pad little 3 year old NES_Rules used to play World Class Track Meet on, also the same pad I learned that you can "run" with your hands a hell of a lot faster than you can with your feet.
So, this week's dilemma is: what to keep, the treasured childhood memory or the near mint treasure that looks a lot nicer on the shelf. So, members of RF Generation, which would YOU keep? Of course, one could just keep both, but for the sake of argument, let's say you can only keep one.

Being forced to choose, I would swap out the newer box and keep the original pad. In real life, I would keep both.
 
I would keep both, but if I could only keep one, I would keep my original one. Too much nogalista to get rid of.
 
Keep your original pad, and put it in the new box.
 
I'd do the same as pwpcody, putting the old pad in the new box. But if you have the place, just keep both Wink
 
Same as above. And I have done this with games and controllers before. I even have a few broken controllers I refuse to part with.
