Just curious, why do you think this went for $350?

Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to post this, and before it disappears ...

 

Ebay auction here: eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2606611643891?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=260661164389&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

As I mentioned in the description, after a couple of quick glances, I'm trying to figure out how the price got so high. What cartridge or two is super rare in that lot?

 

EDIT:

I just saw Sumrfs Save the Day, that's an 8, but I don't think that goes for more than $30-$40; Also, it doesn't have the controllers needed to play that game - this is a start though!

 

EDIT2:

Don't get me wrong, it looks like a nice collection, I just didn't anticipate that price.

I posted this as well when it was happening. There are a couple label variations. One being the Golf with the black tape. Nothing to write home about. Someone with a Zero feedback got it. But, there was a collector that put a bid in a few minutes after I posted this auction. I think someone just wanted a quick start to their collection.

I guess I'm the only one that picked up on the Pac-Man cart which alone is worth $325...so, $25 for the rest is a steal!

If you look at the pics, it wasn't even a Smurf's Save the Day.

This was my auction. I figure I can shed some light on the subject.

 

This auction was a three way bidding war. The golf game may have been a target of one or two of the bidders. If I had realized it was a sought after label variant, I wouldn't have included it in the set. I don't collect that particular type of variant, but I would rather had gotten it to the hands of someone who is after that cart. I can relate to the difficulties of finding carts like this. I lost out on an auction of carts that included an Activision text label skiing to Zeitshabba when he was collecting carts for the wallet project. Unfortunately for me, he included it in a set similar to what I just sold. I don't like the idea that I did that same thing to someone else.

 

I don't shill bid on auctions. An example is the next auction I had for a similar set went for $98.00. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2606673573931?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=260667357393&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

I don't know why this went so low. It was odd considering it was only two weeks later.

Since the bidder that won had a zero feedback I don't think he knew about that label variation. I am sure there are some collectors like myself who are getting down to our last two or three "tape" label variations that would give you a fair price for carts like that.
