I would gladly pay more for a version of this than the typical home brew due to its unique nature. A member was around a while ago planning to release another run. After getting everyones hopes up, he disappeared. I was so disappointed.
Well this is strange. I found a current listing of this game on eBay. This is one of those crazy impossible games to get. Like getting a finished copy of Garfield or Good luck Charlie Brown, it will likely never happen. And that Angie person selling a copy of the just Box and Rules for crazy prices. Albert and I have discussed scum bag sellers whom take a legitimate home brew then they make a Box and/or Rules. IMO that's the real crime of marking something up 5-10x what you paid for it. They spend very little time & money to make an empty box with instructions. The Amateur collectors will pay over $100 not knowing this is basic piracy. Good example here, is a copy of the game that just popped up on eBay. Item #(113274101252) To my knowledge there isn't a ROM dump nor has the Pink Panther ever been available as a legitimate downloadable ROM. https://www.ebay.com...ass!75243!US!-1
I agree with you on everything mention, but in this case the seller is legit. Fabman has been selling a lot of rarities and I believe he would have a copy of this.
I guess the key is to sell the extra, get some money back and keep what you need. If you get to the point where you can build a good sized fort out of extra consoles you're getting into hoarder territory.
Sadly true. Every time I do this I have every intention to sell off the extra. In the end time gets away or Im just too lazy to deal with selling and then my inventory pile grows. ☹
Glad the game is in the hands of someone who can appreciate it. As far as the cash goes, I'm guessing not many folks here really cared that much to know how much it sold for let alone the offers made. It seems like being able to claim one of the top sales in the hobby was more important than the game itself. You can go back to your Nintendo world now. Thanks for playing.
I have email notifications from ebay on various Sears, Sears games, Math, Math Gran Prix, et. al. Anyways, I get email notification for a boxed Math Gran Prix, thinking around two days ago??? It had one bid, and the auction started and $.99. So I went to ebay and it's not listed nor in the completed listings. So, I'm assuming someone did a side deal w/ him and snagged it; he pulled the listing - very frustrating.
I did contact the seller and of course - no response.
I just looked it up and found it completed. Sold for $200. Shame, I would gone higher than that.
You'd do well to listen to Wonder007 and Supergun. You think your collection is impressive, I guarantee it pales in comparison to theirs. They are a few of the reigning authorities around here. Listen or don't listen it's up to you, but don't expect to be taken seriously around here if you don't.
I'm sure it happens quite a bit. That's how we all end up with rediculous amounts of extras. I personally just bought a bundle to get a rare boxed INTV Backgammon. Everything else in the lot I have many times over.
I've bought several games from him and never had a problem. He has good feedback. None claiming to have gotten scamed.
Thy probably deliver on goods, but the stuff the sell seems to be the cheapest looking repros I've ever seen listed at rediculous prices. I know in some cases they have sold items without authorization of the owners that should not have been allowed.
