I just went to the Big 'E' today, and to my surprise, there was a tent selling old school video games, consoles, and accessories.
(The Big 'E' is the Eastern States Expostion, from now until 10/2/2011 in Springfield, MA)
The guy selling the stuff was kind of a dink, but......his inventory was great! Boxed consoles, from the Odyssey to present day. Boxed games from Atari to today. Loose games from Odyssey to today. NES clones, that I had never seen, or heard of before. Joysticks, pads and accessories also.
He also had Arcade machines, like Pac Man and Zaxxon for sale. He also wanted to purchase any old games for trade or cash.
His pricing was so-so. He had a box of Colecovison commons, and they were all $7.50 a piece. So, DK was $7.50 but Turbo was also $7.50.
Other items had no prices, and when I asked how much, he would rattle off a price from his head.
He said he was a wholesaler from the Poconos. His tent is located across from the small ferris wheel.
So, if you are going to the Big 'E', bring some extra cash. You may find some things you need for your collection.
