Lot was listed with no picture just mentioned a case and 12 games with no doubles. Figured with the lack of games for VB as long as they were all VB games and not a few GB games mixed in it had to be worth looking into. So for $400 bucks I rolled the dice...



ROLL

THEM

DICE

BIG

MONEY

NO

WHAMMIES...


STOP!!!












Based on everything being in good condition along with a few manuals included it's safe to say I did well for $400.

I don't follow VB prices, so I'll take your word on the value, but regardless good job on the pickup! I've always wanted one to display and to show people how it works. A fun little piece of Nintendo history.

Very cool. Which 2 games are you missing (only 14 in a complete set)? Love the hard case for the VB unit. I'd love to get one for my VB!

You could make almost all that back just with Jack Brothers. Nice find.

Nice score. One thing that irks me to no end is how EVERY blockbuster VB case you see has those ripples in the label. As though the sticker just can't handle the 0.05 degree curvature of the case lol.

Gosh, that was a lucky buy! I have 12 unique games in my VB collection, and you can definitely guess which two I am missing.

Yes, of course!     I got my VB collection on the cheap back in 1997/1998 and I'm pretty sure my 3D Tetris was the only copy we came across.  That's why I'm stunned that this lot just happened to have all three.

My previous VB pickup was awesome. It was for a complete set of VB BNIB including console, swag, and 2 NFRS for $1200 shipped to my door. Paid $1000 for a graded Jack Bros a few months back because I was tired of waiting to pickup a decdent sealed copy. So for $1200 I could not get the money out fast enough...lol
Here is the 1st lot http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=10&th...
