    Nice haul Britt the $10 deal was a coup, and those ps1 games are pretty solid. Seriously go play Crash Team Racing that game is still as good as any kart racer out there.

      I barely remember playing CTR…I need to have a nostalgia night.

    Whoa! The halo3 strat guide looks to be in decent shape..I love that you collect guides…I wish I’d known you when I donated my collection :(. I think you did pretty good…WWE/WWF games tend to have poor resale, but you have some great PS1 games in there (which are starting to get rare), plus Starcraft/broodwards is just classic. Great job…but please..please…stop buying ghost recon, before your friends setup an intervention :)

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      YOU WHAT? DONATED WHAT NOW?! Hehe, I kid. And yeah, I need to learn to say no to any more Ghost Recon…

  • EMG1121

    I like how you put the ebay values on there for justification :)….I totally had the guide for WWF WarZone. I had to buy it JUST to figure out how to give some jabroni the stone cold stunner.

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      LOL. Back before the interent was readily accessible…we used guides.

    Great pick-ups!
    Crash Team Racing hasn’t aged a bit, and is excellent in multiplayer :)
    Definitely one of my favourite kart racers :)

  • Kyle Tanner

    I did this a few times. I found FFIII for SNES for $2, and sold it for $52 on the Amazon Marketplace. My best score.

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      Nice!!! I think my best score was Suikoden II.

  • yoyo

    do you even consider ebay fees and shipping costs in this? You make it sound like everything is profit!

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      Nope, because I don’t sell anything. It’s just for shits.

  • Jay

    Huh. Interesting, but a pretty low profit margin on your takes. After fees and such, you’re not making any money, assuming you’re actually trying to sell them.

    When you’re picking up copies of Pikmin 2 ($40ish) for $1, Kirby’s DreamLand 3 for $3 (two this year so far), and Earthbound for $10, then we’ll talk.. Until then, you’re still in the Amateur League. But nice try. We’ll be watching your career with great interest. :D

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      I’ve been collecting games for a while—so I know when I score a good haul. Suikoden, Suikoden II, Suikoden III, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII and Xenogears for 10 bucks is a good haul, and one I’ve had before. I’m not doing this to make money.

  • Jay

    Heads up, your featured on the Consumerist. Cool lewt you managed to pick up. One of my aunts goes to garage sales all the time and maages to pick up cool things. Not like games or anything but dress shoes, nice dress shirts, an off the rack suit (I gotta take that to a seamstress and get it fitted up/custom tailored for me one day).

    • http://blondenerd.com Britt

      Oh cool, thanks for letting me know! Yeah, if you hit it just right, people sell some of the nicest things for dirt cheap. If you know what you’re looking for, you can score!

    I bought Snatcher for the Sega CD for $10 at a flea market. The game goes for like $150+ online.

  • Shaveen

    You got Halo 3 for $5!!!???? DAMN THATS A DEAL!!!!
