I am still in shock, It was Tuesday night at 10:00pm I was just reading jasinner post on NA how he found a World of Nintendo case, I even posted a comment on how bad I want one and one day I will find one, little did I know that day was 30 minutes later. As I was just cruising the internet I started to look on CL and the usual nothing comes up under Nintendo, I then did a search for Display cases figured I give it a chance you never know, and I have to tell you that I have never search for just that title, so about the third page into the search my eyes caught a glimpse of what looked like a WON case, I took a closer look and that's when my heart started to pound. It was 10:45pm at night and I was so badly wanted to call especially after seeing that the ad was posted 4 days ago but I knew I had to wait till the morning, Man I have to tell you it was the longest night I ever had, didn't sleep at all my adrenaline was high. The next morning around 8:00am I called with fingers crossed and asked if the cases where still for sale and the best answer you could hear was "yes still available", We agree on a pick up time after work 4:00pm that day, the location was about 45min from my house so I have to rent a Uhaul truck put some blankets in the back and I was off. I arrived there at 5:00pm with traffic, The lady with her husband where very nice people, I would say they where both in the 70's age. I walk into the building where the cases are and BINGO two of them are in the front of the store and last one is in the basement! now I am all by my self no help, her husband told me he can't lift nothing, now I am trying to figure a way to get these in the truck, after about 30 minutes and told the lady I will come back tomorrow, soo pissed, didn't want to come back and didn't want to rent another truck so I went outside and said to myself I am going to flag someone down to see if they would help, God was on my side because this guy stop and helped my pack all 3 cabinets in the Uhaul, I ended up giving him $50. Sorry for the long detail story but it was an awesome one all the way, I am so happy to have found them especially this way.

If you can't lift it, you are not worthy!  

I am kidding. Great story and good to hear you were able to get it all done the same day. Congrats! Time to fill those cases up and show them off!

I occasionally search Craigslist for "display case" for that exact same reason: looking for someone who doesn't realize it's more desirable as a World of Nintendo case in case it flies under the radar of competing collectors. I haven't seen a WON case that way yet but your experience definitely validates the logic.   I originally did it to find something equivalent to trade for a WON cabinet that was in use somewhere and it occurred to me that I might actually find one that way so I repeated the search every month or two. Glad to hear that the tactic worked out for someone!
