Here's all the stuff I've found at my local Salvation Army Stores and Goodwills over the past six months or so. I apologize for the lack of Nintendo stuff here, Central Florida seems to be a desert for cartridge stuff. I've found ONE N64 cart in the 6 months I've been hunting, and it was only Army Men Air Combat (I forgot to get a pic of it). I tried to put everything in chronological order, but a few things are out of place.


I found these the first time I went out hunting...






Halo 3 had a bonus copy of Halo 2 inside. NBA Street 2 and FIFA Street 3 ended up being traded towards TimeSplitters Future Perfect at my local game store.




Crash Bandicoot Warped is missing the disc and manual, and most of the games here except for GTA Vice City and the other PS1 are missing their manuals


Devil Mary Cry 2 was missing Disc 1 but did include the disc for the original Devil May Cry. Need For Speed Underground 2 is from a Need For SPeed Collectors set that was released at the end of the PS2's life.

Pretty good pickups I'd say. I swear one day we'll look back at the times when Thrift stores and flea markets were full of cheap PS2 games with envy.

Yeah, that day will come eventually. I'm kicking myself for not buying NES and SNES games when they were plentiful like that.

Awesome Gamecube lot! Fortunately Salvation Army doesn't send all of the stuff to be auctioned off like Goodwill does.

Thanks! I love the Salvation Army stores for that exact reason, lol. I've had so much better luck there than at Goodwill.


and some more Meh finds! These (except for Lego Star Wars) will be going up for trade in the coming week, along with the shovelware from the GC lot I picked up. For some reason the PS2 version of Madden 2012 is worth around $22 on VGPC.

I would guess it's because it was probably the last Madden released on the system and didn't sell well given that PS3 had been out for a couple of years at that point (or 1 year maybe?). That's the case a lot of the time with the last release of a sports game on old hardware.

Dual Hearts is similar to Zelda in gameplay I beleive.

I figured I should update this thread with what I've acquired over the last couple of weeks...


Sled Storm was $3 at Value Pawn, GTA3 was $2 and the PS1 games were $1 each at the Salvation Army.


These were $2 each at the Salvation Army.


A toaster. Yes, I finally bought an NES. I ended up buying this at a local game store and I paid more than I'd like to admit.


I bought Mach Rider, Snake's Revenge, and SMB/DH, as well as Metroid Prime from the same local game store for about FMV. Luigi's Mansion was purchased for $8 from Value Pawn.


PSP-1000 and 6 games, I paid about $40 for all of this from Cash America Pawn.


GBA SP-001 with a case, I'm not sure if this is OEM or third party. It also included Final Fantasy 1 and 2 Dawn of Souls, Pac-Man Collection, Dr. Mario, and Super Mario Advance 2: Yoshi's Island. I paid $35 for all of it at the Salvation Army Store.

Not too much of a story here, this is just stuff I've picked up so far this year, and includes a couple of hauls worth of stuff.
The PS1 games and the Genesis games (but not the actual system) were both part of system bundles at my local Salvation Army store. I didn't bother including system photos because we all know what a PS1 looks like and because the Genesis games were bundled with one of those Genesis classic systems, which is an utter piece of shit.
Wipeout was actually found at a Goodwill, it's the first item worth a shit that I've found there in the last 6 months.
The Model 1 Genesis (Yes, I got the cords and controllers), the Persona Q edition 3DS, the Mario edition DS, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea 4, Drakengard 3, SSX, Maximo (WHOEVER IT WAS AT GAMESTOP THAT PUT THE PRICE STICKER ON THE BOX ART, I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL), Way of the Samurai 2, Conflict: Desert Storm, and Dead or Alive Paradise are all from various pawn shops.
DuckTales Reloaded, Terraria, Minecraft, and the Hylian Shield 3DS case are all from the clearance section at Wal-Mart.
