Local store find, only $14 after a trade-in of unsold garage sale fodder. This is the first time I’ve seen a copy of Widget locally. Captain America is a tough find on the Game Gear too. All in all, a fine selection of games and a great deal.

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.
Was given (mostly) free reign to mop up in a local game store as a birthday gift, leading to this $75/free game haul. While Strider 2 may be missing the other disc (with an emulated version of the arcade original), it’s been on my most wanted list for a decade now. I’ll take what I can get. Sports fans should note NHL 2002 on GBA, which is an update to the Genesis era NHL titles. Physics are a touch off, but everything from the menus to the sprites are identical to NHL 96/97/98.
(Update: The Strider 2 disc is actually the Strider arcade disc. All copies were misprinted, and the games printed in reverse. I can see why the mistake is easy to make now.)
My first NES find in the wild in… Well, a long time. All I can do is reminisce about the days when no one wanted them and coming home with a car trunk full of NESes was not uncommon. GTA 2 is a nice find too, complete as it is – with a free pager offer!
$12 for everything here at a local thrift store.
