I’ve just done a recalculation of my collection… and for all my wheel and dealing, I’m lucky if I broke even at today’s prices!
The above games are an example of what I overpaid/traded for. Collectively I traded $850 dollars worth of merchandise for these three games… which was an exceptional deal at the time! Now collectively, these three games sell for around $610… that’s a 29% decrease in price since two years ago. This is the reason I’m holding off on selling a lung and kidney for games such as Little Sampson, etc.! I’m like a water : camels compared to NES games : Nintendo Joe. I can wait dude!
I was missing these guys, so picked them up at the last Barrie Game exchange for a total of $30. Not the best deal, but I haven’t seen them very often. Honestly these games blow, but as I said they have been very elusive to my collection.
Back in the day, a guy offered me a mint condition version of this game for $125. Clearly this game was meant only for rich people! I thought he was out to lunch… am I really going to pay that much to fight bloody carrots?! Nope, I was going to pay $250 for the experience 4 years later and this was actually a deal even at today’s prices!
Maybe I’m getting old, and am thinking about my retirement in 20 years, but these games are just so damn expensive, and are going down in value! If only I had invested in Google and Amazon when their stock was low I could quit now!
