It's incredible how you managed to find all that stuff going to a sale advertised like that just as it opened. Around here (and many other places) that stuff would have been long gone.

It was posted on a website that has classifieds for one city but the town the sale was in was about another 15 minutes away from it. Also it started on a Thursaday which is kind of odd. There was no phone number on the ad to call and try to get there before but someone did knock on their door a day early and was able to take a lot. They had bought everything available for super nintendo. Every nes game and every n64 game. I'm surprised they didn't grab a whole bunch of other stuff too. More for me   From talking to the owner I didn't miss out on too much. There were only 2 super nintendos available and all the games were sports games. I would have picked it all up if the other person hadn't though.

It was surprising but there weren't many people there. Most of the people were trying to find newer stuff. The newest being ps3 and xbox 360. I did help one family pick out a ps2 and a nice collection of games. They didn't know much about what they were buying so it was fun to help out and they seemed very appreciative.

The screens are very scratched. These are candidates for some new shells and screens one day down the road. Sadly all of them are AGS-001. I've still never personally seen an AGS-101

Scratches bother me less than dead pixels or discoloration. The SP that someone posted about recently with potential water damage with that big splotch on it? Nope... can't do it. I've got an SP somewhere with a dead pixel in the center of the screen. I had to stop using it.

I was looking through the local buy and sell website that I check once a week or so and seen the worst worded and confusing ad I had seen in a long time. The seller was having an online garage sale and in one of the pictures I seen in a cardboard box what looked like super nintendo games. I messaged the seller and asked if they still had them to which they said yes and agreed for me to come over and look at them. It was only a couple blocks away from where I live so I walked over right after messading.

When I got to there place I was greeted with "I looked up the prices of these on ebay and don't know if I want to sell them. That donkey kong goes for 100$."

That obviuosly wasn't what I wanted to hear but decided to look through them anyways. I pulled out two games that the owner hadn't previously checked the prices on and we settled on 20$ a piece

I decided to check out some pawnshops and thrift stores on my way to work and boy am I glad I did.

I have no clue what that SFC mini was doing on this side of the world at a goodwill but I've never grabbed something off a shelf so fast. As far as I can tell it is the real deal and looks to be brand new!
All the other games not priced were 5 dollars each. 
The smash up card game is brand new.

Yeah, I love board game at thrift stores. They're usually brand new because the recipients see it would take effort to learn them and then immediately give up and toss it

I'll have to take another look at it. I tried playing it and had no clue what I was doing.

Only the SFC mini and the board game were at Goodwill. The other games came from another thrift store but it rounded the day out quite nicely. I couldn't believe that the SFC was there. At first I was convinced it was a fake but after looking at it compared to others online, it's either the real thing or the best counterfeit I've seen.

I guess when it rains it pours. Two nice pickups in two days

Somebody walked into my uncle's pawn shop and sold these games to him. My uncle knows that I collect almost anything Nintendo so he called me up and asked if I was interested in them. He gave me the family discount price. (Same price he bought them for). It sure pays off to have an uncle that owns a pawn store.

-SFC Dragonball Z
-SFC Dragonball Z 2
-Rockin Kats
-Bionic Commando
-Blaster Master
-Kirby's Adventure
-Megaman X
-Actraiser 2

I was doing some recycling and in the pile of old electronics I noticed this Atari keyboard. Sitting right beside it was the monitor to go with it. I brought it back home, plugged it in and it fired right up. Even had a floppy disk with financial records from 1987 still in it. lol

I honestly don't know anything about old computer systems. I just seen the atari logo and decided to grab it. It is an ATARI STf computer and an ATARI SM124 monochrome monitor. Is there any value in these old computers and is it worth writing some ROMs to floppys to try out old games or should it go back to the recyclers. I'd like to know and any information you can give me is very appreciated. Thanks
