Hi everyone!!! I've sooooo much over flow in my collection. Truly I've maxed out on collecting because I'm very satisfied with my collection, having every true gem worth owning. I wanna only keep games that I love playing the most. That being said, I wanna sell mystery retro video game and memorabilia boxes to purge my collection and I'd like to make sure it goes into the good hands of my fellow collectors. Theses boxes will include multiple Famicom games, Nintendo figurines, old Nintendo power magazines, and other neat surprises. I've  enough overflow to make about 10 boxes. Since this is just a test run for now, I'm only shipping to the USA. The price will be $50 plus $12 for shipping.

If you're willing to work with me in shipping I'll send international. I'm just worried cause these are gonna be heavy packages. The whole point is to give great stuff for a cheap price.

Hmmmm, what's the ratio of Famicom games to the rest.  Also are the Famicom titles more filler and better for beginner collectors or could there be some sought after gem in there.  I'm not talking about rarities like Lickle and Gimmick, but something like Red Arremer 2 or Samurai Pizza Cats for example

I would suggest making 5 boxes up for example - all equal in terms of amount, value and type of stiff etc.  Then show what's in one as an example of what to expect and then seal it back up.

That way folks know what they're in for - I wouldn't want to pay $50 for a box of my unwanted figures, games and stuff, but it sounds like you have some good things to sell, it'll be convincing.

there will be 10 famicom games per box and no there won't be tons of fillers there are some really great games in the mix.

If you have any games from your collection that I need, I'd gladly take them off your hands Smiley

Please check out my gaming blog, FC Game Land, for information and my own personal thoughts on Famicom and other imported games.  I will also list items for sale on there, for those who are interested.

Maybe sell your items individually first, then after a week or two bundle your leftover items. I think people would love to pick out the best stuff first. We definitely need to see some pics Tongue

I don't think you guys quite understand the point of mystery boxes.

If I was in the US, I'd sign up for one, but postage to Canada will probably be excessive.

$62 isn't chump change, and it's fairly typical for 'mystery items' to have an example to show customers.

To clarify, I think this is a really cool idea, not trying to be disparaging.

The mystery should be what the items in the box are - not whether or not the value will be way off, or if the items will be mostly old toys etc.
 
Manuel did this well with his series - outlined exactly how it worked and people lunged at it.  I'd recommend finding that thread for pointers  Red FC Cart

I'd happily do this if it got me any of the FC carts I'm missing from my list.

I'd also happily take the Nintendo Power issues... if I didn't already have every one of them up to around 250 or so.  Grin
