Picked up Virtual Boy with Mario Tennis and Wario Land with instruction Manuals for both. Also had Controller and Power cable. Missing Stand. Could use a new eye surround piece. Got it for $30.00 I have wanted one of these for a long time. Did I do okay on this?

Where is the cheapest place I can find a stand and maybe a new eye surround piece?

Nothing too exciting but I did pick up Doom Longbox version and three Dreamcast games. The DC games are relevant in which that with their purchase I now own 100 DC games, which I estimate is around 1/3 of the complete US set when counting original releases and all assorted variants.

Personally I don't think a UPC sticker should command such a price increase but I'm not going to complain about that anymore. :lol:

I haven't gone to a garage sale in a long time, but I did get a few NES games from a guy on Craigslist today...

Legend of Zelda (gold)
Tetris (official version)
Super Mario Bros. (solo cart)
Batman '89
TMNT
TMNT 2: The Arcade Game

All six for $30; not too bad, IMO.

Double post since nobody else is finding cool crap I guess.

Today I got a 32x $5, came with power adapter and that extra plastic thing that sits between the 32x unit and the genesis 2. Been wanting to play BC Racers for some godawful reason and my other 32x is torn apart for a Neptune project that is so far back on my backlog of projects so luckily this one worked, especially since I checked the receipt for the return policy the Goodwill girl had listed it as a paper shredder. :lol:

Also finally found one of those weird Dual Analog controllers and a Ps1 Multitap it was attached to for $5. Too bad it's so obscure you'd never get a price on par of how rare it apparently is.

Don't feel bad, I haven't found anything at a garage sale worth buying (video game wise) since 2005 lol.
