This isn't a big surprise if you've been reading the eBay Roundup thread, but this arrived today:

SuperSeriesBigLeagueBaseball.thumb.jpg.3238866af3b06626d8a2fe76bbc1825b.jpg

 

I am shocked that it arrived today - I bought it on eBay late on Tuesday night. I am so glad that I asked the guy to upgrade to air instead of ground shipping (2/3 of the way across Canada).  

 

It's been quite a week for me thanks to excessive spending, friends finding rare items on 5-week old Quebec Facebook Marketplace posts and friends offering up generous trades. Ya, I'm teasing there but I can't count them until the item is safely delivered.  So, hopefully, more posts to come in the next couple of weeks.

Nice!  Glad it arrived safely.  
 

I’ve got a couple Intellivision items waiting for me at home that I’ve been searching quite a while for.  Currently on a cruise in the middle of the Caribbean, but can’t wait to see when I get back.

Finally unboxed things today after returning from vacation.  Ended up coming down with something when he got home and haven’t had much energy.  Here’s the couple of Intellivision items I picked up that I’ve been on the search for for some time.  
 

I’ve never found many of these, so when these came available, I had to make a big push for them.  Very likely overpaid, but when you see something that doesn’t ever come up, you better get it then

finally, being a big Sears fan, I’ve wanted this since I first saw it. Still not sure if these were sold at Sears or how they got they got to market.  The seller didn’t have any history either but said he’s owned it since he got the system.  It’s in rough shape, but hoping that it will clean up somewhat. It will sit nicely next to its Mattel twin.

Very cool. Great pickups as always. 👍🏻

In case you want to restore the foam inside, here's what it looks like.  Mine has the original foam but it literally disintegrating.  Thus, my case is unusable.

I'm planning on doing mine one of these days.  I have the Sears one and all of the foam is completely missing.

 

Edit: Actually mine has some of the foam, but I still want to replace it.

Very nice.

I bet you let out a sigh of relief once you opened it.

Mine looks just like yours Jason. No foam on top anymore, but the foam squares are still on the bottom.

Indeed I did. Was so glad it arrived quickly so I didn't need to spend the weekend checking the shipping details for updates!

Overpaid a bit, but it's in pretty damn good shape and the "for 1 or 2 players" variant I didn't have.  So disease fed for the day / minute.

A couple BIG pickups for me!  My most wanted game, French Canadian Popeye:

Popeye01.thumb.jpg.ab32e5682be21ff6477db519b14b9419.jpg

 

Thanks a TON to Warren (he's on AA but don't know his handle) for pointing out a five-week old Facebook Marketplace from Quebec. I had to buy the whole lot and have it shipped across Canada but it was worth it! Now my most wanted game is to find a French Canadian Space Spartans for Warren!

 

I also spent the cash to get the SEARS Checkers from eBay:

SEARSCheckers01.thumb.jpg.7ec46f0f9a47d8a81524f0d1bb3268a6.jpg

 

Now I have all of the most difficult to find SEARS games, but I still need Frog Bog, Golf, Hockey, Soccer and Utopia.

Congrats! Nice pickups! That FC Popeye is a sneaky rare one.

Sears Soccer was the last one I needed for quote some time until Rev sent me one.  Sears Frog Bog is deceivingly rare and Hockey isn't much better.

I appreciate the thought Rog! Mostly I wanted to say that the art on the SEARS games is generally great, but that Frog Bog box is awesome!

Yes, I might need to update my personal rarity rating on these. At some point I probably made an assumption that Soccer and Hockey were common but that's not the case.  Well, at least this gives me some things to hunt that aren't silly expensive.

lol, well I wouldn't just tease a fellow collector like that if I wasn't willing to deal. We'll work something out and I'll be happy to help finish his collection. I finished my own 125 with deals from 2 legends in the community here so I like to help where I can.

Oh that Hockey, one of the last 2 I need as well, Hockey and Backgammon.

Hockey isn't too terrible to get but you have to look every day since they go fast once one pops up. Backgammon is a nightmare to find CIB! Not as bad as Checkers but still rare. I have a very nice copy of BG that I will be taking to PRGE to help The Most Interesting Italian In the WorldTM complete his set :lolblue:
