An all portable find from a local game store, and with this, the final Christmas gift card has been extinguished. X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse can be scratched from the wishlist, and the Sonic Advance series is now complete. Not a bad score for only $13 over the gift card’s value.

Combination estate sale and thrift store find, around $55 for all. There was more, including strategy guides, magazines, and appreciate cables for the system’s which didn’t fit in the image.
This was also the first time I’ve picked over the house of a hoarder. Those systems underwent about three hours of restoration to get them to that point.
That was the N64 before. It wasn’t pretty.
Display tip: Stay away from black shelving, especially when glossy. Even if it fits the room’s palette, black is quick to show dirt and dust, plus even slight surface wear will be impossible to miss. This is my boxed portable collection and for as well as this shelf holds what I need it to, it is persistently dirty. Shelves show scrapes, and owning pets makes it no easier to maintain. Stick with faux wood grains, custom build where possible with light stains, or paint with bright colors.
Haul from Temperance Days in Michigan. Total around $25. I highly recommend picking up colored, “Play it Loud” N64 controllers/systems when cheap. They’re showing a strong rise in value. The jungle green controller should bring between $20-$30. Other colors go higher. N64 items in general are beginning to pick up value as well.
