Dreaming of a Finish

Another one down as I inch toward a complete Dreamcast set. Total haul was $13 total after some trade-ins. I’ve never seen Touring Car locally before, so that was a nice grab I think.

You Down with OPM?

A $30 local game store buy, which includes the first issue of OPM after its name change (from PSX). No demo disc, but that’s okay. The mag is in great shape. The LaRussa Baseball is a wee bit special as it is totally complete, including the team cards. Genesis sports games are the most common thing in collecting, but finding them complete like that? No so easy.

Cleaving Land

Yes, it’s been slow around these parts. Blame an abysmally bad garage sale season. But, today was different as this birthday haul from various game stores in Cleveland shows. Not often do I get to use the TurboGrafx tag, and two more Dreamcast games inch me ever closer to that complete set.

One Buck Round-Up

Except for Cosmic Spacehead, everything here was just $1 each (Spacehead was $5). Not bad for a random visit to a random game store when I was out of town for a day. It always helps to Google “game stores near me” if you’re somewhere new!

Madden-ing

One of my best finds of 2017.

“Uh, it’s a Madden.”

Not any Madden, but Championship Edition. This was only available to rental stores in 1992 in small numbers. The manual – although separated from the staples – is exceedingly hard to find. The local game store selling this didn’t know what they had, and it was 20% off the marked price, making it $19.99. That’s ironic since the orignal sales reciept was inside. What did they pay back then? $19.99.

Stop: Sale Time

Oh, you’re having a 25% off all retro games sale, are you? I’ll gladly take advantage of that and spend around $12 for this lot (also involved were some movies not pictured making the total less precise). Nothing special, but it fills some holes on a variety of platforms.

Blaster for My Master 

 Post-birthday gift card splurge. Total cost? $2.50 after the card. Needed a N64 as mine is suffering from a bad video port and Blaster Master 2 was on the want list for a good while. Nice to cross that one out.

Well Timed

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.

Combative 

$6 at a flea market. Not the best but Ace Combat can be erased from my want list. Been meaning to replay it for a while. 

Also, what’s a key ingredient to a great flea market? Expired beef jerky and sausage shoved into a cabinet with Axe deodorant. Such things can get no better.

Change of Scenery 

Changing up the view a little for this small $11 find at a local game store. The Genesis NBA Live ’98 can be scratched from the wish list, although the SNES version remains.
