$35,000, Buy It Now!

Dude's on crack. You could buy a small house in the midwest with $35k. You could buy a fantastic automobile for $35k. And he's asking the same for a Nintendo Entertainment System? It does come with 42 games, with some of them being pretty rare. It's a clean system with a new 72-pin connector and has four controllers, but even with that, I'd thinking somewhere in the sub $1,000 range.

So why is he asking for so much? He says he's down on his luck, and has plenty of bills to pay. This NES is his "price possession" and is the only thing he says he owns fully. It's priceless to him.

THE ONLY THING IT HAS ON THE SYSTEM ITSELF AS YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURE ON RIGHT MIDDLE ITS MISSINGTHE SCREW THAT HOLDS DOWN THAT CORNER AND ITS CHIPPED BUT ITS FINE IT DOESNT AFFECT PLAYING.

But ronald3868 is serious, folks. He's willing to show his paid bills and credit report if this sells. He says he'll personally hand over the NES and thank the buyer.

Do you know what I love about eBay? Stuff like this actually sells. It wouldn't be unheard of for this guy to get $35,000 for a NES. I'm with HBG in that I'll likely sh*t myself if this goes. I mean, I tried to sell a like-new DSi XL last week and couldn't even get the guy to pay.
