Star Wars Episode I Racer for Nintendo 64, cartridge only in great condition, $2.99 at Savers. I'd heard good things about this game, but I've never tried it out.

Mario Tennis Power Tour for GameBoy Advance, cartridge only in great condition, $1.99 at Savers. I believe this is the Mario Tennis game with an RPG mode.

Came with the Sega CD base. Fairly clean and scuff free. $19.99
Looks like more pics are needed. I've seen this version of the Genesis many times, but not in this good of condition. Attached to the Sega CD base and on a shelf high enough where I couldn't see any writing, I almost passed by it last night.

Also what is the highest we should pay for an SNES without cords or anything? There was an acceptable console only at Goodwill for $14.99. Just curious what people think is a "go ahead and grab it" price. Thanks!

Light pink one. With stylus and Gameboy game hatch cover. No cords. Came in a Nintendo Brunswick small case shaped like a bowling bag. Extremely nice condition. $12.00 SVDP. Yes $12.00.

Then i went to a local video store. they had a NES up on a shelf with a few games on top. This place usually overcharges on random things so i've been going less and less but this time wasn't too bad. I asked about the price of the system, the manager said probably $40, i don't know why he wasn't sure. He said the games were going to be another $10. it was this mario/duck hunt and dr. mario. i asked about just the games. $5 each, so i popped on this.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U edition for $9.99 at Goodwill. Target salvage, complete in case with manual and disc in excellent condition. As this was a game I was keeping an eye out for a good sale on, I jumped right on it. Oddly enough, it was not on the DVD rack but instead lumped atop some board games.

Console only. $7.99 goodwill. Cleaned up really nice and works perfectly. Now I have a backup or one I can sell once I've gathered all the necessary components to sell as a bundle.
