Currently there are like two cib opened (admittedly good condition) sears heavy sixer listings on ebay trying to get $500+s&h. Just check the sold listings and you'll find plenty similar condition cib's for barely over $100.

Numerous posts on Craigslist. 

 

For example, this listing keeps getting reposted over the last few years

 

https://pittsburgh.c...5699519866.html

 

Here is another one:

That second Craigslist link is COMPLETELY reasonable. I mean, it has at least one Apollo game I can see...

It's like people think, "This is old, so it MUST be worth a fortune, right. Right?!"

But VCS is not as bad as NES sellers, they wanna sell PAL Stadium Event for like almost 10,000, Max Payne sealed for GBA 10,000 (sealed on ebay also for 50 bucks), and other common stuff with similar pricing. Suckers.

 

 

But back to VCS, an ET standees for 200 bucks, Elliott looks frightening to say the least.

Of course, everything in these VGA  plastic containers, (for Atari and others) do people REALLY believe these guys are an authority? Who made them an authority?

I wish I had that money making idea.

Just buy a sealed Pole Position for $10 and convince yourself the cart has the misprint.

I bought Pitfall, a common cartridge for $7.00 at the flea market,just a few bucks unnecessary for a common when it should have been at least around $2-4.00. The real kick in the balls is that no matter how much I try to firmly insert the cartridge, the game wouldn't work for me. 

 

And of course as I explained in a previous forum on here, that Mario Bros. loose cartridge I bought for $45.00.

I was checking out some games for sale at a local pawn shop that where all way over priced at $10 for loose carts (mostly commons). Came across miner 2049er, which isn't a bad price at $10, then realized it felt quite light, upon closer inspection noticed there was no board, just an empty shell!!  :mad:

So many games aren't tested so blunders happen.
