    Well Ive got a few, my collection isnt huge at the moment so I dont have the coolest finds, but looking through my room heres what I think are great finds: Super Mario bros. 25th anniversary (I bought it almost 4 months after it came out sealed!), brand new sealed copy of Chrono Trigger with poster included for the Nintendo DS, and Gunpey on the PSP for $2 (I know its not that great but its one of the best I could find!.

    Default My Great Finds

    Now defiantly my number one is for sure my greatest find, but the others..... I'm not so sure about.

    1. Tetris Tengen - Nes: I bought this at a retail store for $10 because they thought it was just normal Tetris.

    2. Some old handheld systems that were still in the box - I forgot what the names of the systems were but what I do remember is that one is a racing game and the other one is a Donkey Kong like game. I also got this from the same place I bought the Tetris game. I believe I got it for $10 all together.

    3. "kind of" broken Super Famicom - I got this at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo in 2010 for $5. The broken part in it was the actual color scheme thing. For some reason it was black and white instead of color. Also it had no hookups, but for $5 I think thats a good deal.

    Thanks for reading, have a great day!

    Never had a great find in the wild. Anytime I've been to a goodwill they've only had a few games that were worthless crap and cost way more than they should. I've never even seen an old console there or at any of the thrift shops. I've always paid full price on ebay or on dp.
    Wanted and willing to pay for:
    Philips CDI 740
    NTSC Proto of Daze Before Christmas (SNES)

    I haven't found the jackpot yet, but here are my best recent finds.

    I picked up the vectrex with three controllers and 18 games for $75

    One yard sale had N64 games in cases for 2 bucks a piece. I got Harvest Moon, Smash bros, Mario party 2 and some commons.

    I got a NES Miracle Piano CIB in great shape at the Bowling Green, KY flea market for $40.

    Most Memorable?

    -For Arcades,

    #1)Skee Ball Lightning - Craigslist free score! Worked except for it had no ticket dispenser and just read CODE ZERO after you scored a certain amount of points----Currently deteriorating in my backyard with the elecronics tucked away in my basement. It will live again.

    #2)NEO-GEO 1 slot - Craigslist $80 or $90. Red & grey DYNAMO upright cabinet with Puzzle Bobble----Long gone but I definately made money on that one.

    #3)Arkanoid Cocktable - Another Craigslist free score. Basket case ATARI "cocktail" cab w/Bootleg 22 pin board----Currently re-wiring, without all that atari S#@T inside that is. If all goes well I have a NEO-GEO AES in trade for it.

    -For Consoles,

    #1)Amiga CD32 - $20 at a flea market(Kennedy hall) from a guy who's catch phrase is "I Sell You Cheap". Came with one game controller, a TV remote and the tel/modem. Had Van City Bank decals on it as it was used for early online? banking----I only ever burnt the Last Ninja 3 for it and as there aren't many NTSC games for it I decided to let it go.

    #2)Philips CDI - Free. I was actually standing in line at a thrift store(talize), turns out the guy behind me was an old family friend, he saw I was buying some NES games or whatever, Long story short... He gave it to me. Came with one controller and a few games. Kether was one. Also an encyclopedia from what I remember----Sold that day to a good friend. $100 probably just spent on filler games but hey.

    #3)Hitachi Saturn - $25 at the SPCA thrift in Richmond -the only thrift store I've ever seen a suit of armour at. Boxed & complete with 2 controllers -one Hitachi brand and 2 ram carts -one being a SEGA brand----sold to some kid who likes to play japanese games.

    Hounorable Mentions?

    -Too many to list

    Man, some of you guys have found some insane stuff in the wild!

    The only really cool find I can think of at the moment is Superman 64...









    Dev cart, 5 bucks

    Other than that, nothing comes to mind.

    I mentioned this in a different thread, but I found 30 or so complete NES games at a local pawn shop for $2.00 each. Among them was Mega Man 5. Also at the same pawn shop I got Demons Crest on SNES complete for $4.00. I got a SEGA Outrun Arcade from a trift store for $100, the only thing wrong with it is the previous owner lost the keys to the coin door, but luckily it was already unlocked. Also at a flea market I got a sealed ASCII pad controller for SNES for $5.00, it's the one with the turbo/slow switches.
