A $40 Black Friday haul. Everything was 25% off at a local store.
“DOS sports games. Really?”
Yes, because in this case, Madden is exceedingly hard to find. Next to – or even right alongside – the Turbo Duo Madden, this 1995 DOS PC port is the most obscure entry in the series. This is the first one I’ve seen on ebay in some time, so even though it was bundled with the others, I grabbed it. When Madden 96 was cancelled on the PlayStation, the PC port shuffled into stores to recoup the losses. It’s all that remained of the PS1 game until a prototype surfaced years later.
Needed an AC adapter for the SNES find last weekend, which led to this $20 total haul from a local game store. PTO qualifies as a great find for a measly $1 (and it’s complete) while I’ve been hunting for an original box for Arnold Palmer Golf for some time. Weird coincidence/timing I found it the same week he died.
Also, ESPN Speedworld isn’t worth much but it’s not easy to come by if you’re going for a compete set.
Half off thrifting day and rummage sale day. Mostly resale items except for the Xbox games. Not pictured is a 3D Avatar Blu-ray and a slew of character twin bed sheets. Bed sheets? Yes.
If you want something else to hunt while you’re thrifting, scour the bedding. ’80s era bed sheets/sleeping bags can command a decent return. Real Ghostbusters, Batman, Ninja Turtles… Etc. As long as condition is great, they can sell.
