Ok folks, sit back and grab your popcorn, this ride is going to be long and epic.
Iíve been on one hell of a bargain hunt lately and I have been quite successful in my findings. Before we get to the good stuff let me just say this; the majority of these items were all found and bought at either a Goodwill store, Cash Converters, this little CD shop by my house or GameStop. I will try to post where I got each item and if it was a hell of a deal I will list the price paid.
Let the show begin!
I will start the tour with my Mario Galaxy pre-order coin:
Found this at a Goodwill store here in Chicago for $5.00 bucks.
Next we have some current-gen games:
Ghost Squad for the Wii (found for $8.00 bucks at a used CD shop) and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (bought new)
Here are a couple of GameBoy Advance games I found:
Henry Hatsworth & Professor Layton
Mario Kart DS and Metal Slug 7 (MS7 was 14.99 at GameStop during their big blowout sale)
Dementium: The Ward and New Super Mario Bros. DS
Retro Game Challenge (fucking awesome, go buy it) & Sonic Chronicles (not bad)
Guitar Hero: On Tour ($10.00 bucks)
This was a pretty nice find. I got this fella at Wolfís Flea Market (outside of Chicago) last weekend. Guy wanted $50.00 for it but after a few minutes of chatting he agreed to sell it to me for $35.00. I could kick myself though. The same guy also had an N64 in the box as well as an original Playstation in the box, both for $25.00 a piece. I have no idea why I didnít grab them.
Now this is the really cool part, when I was going through the NES games I had found I noticed something sticking out of a couple of the NES sleeves that were holding Super Mario 2 and the Super Mario / Duck Hunt games.
In the sleeves were little notes, left by who I am assuming was the original game owner. Check it;
This was with Super Mario 2. Looks like someone was keeping notes on who to play for what level.
This one was with the Super Mario / Duck Hunt game. Also on the NES sleeve the person wrote down when they started the game and when they finally beat it:
