What's a fair price to pay for Moon Crystal loose?

according to some its $30 but thats unreal really (maybe a few years ago or for a pirate). Personally I wouldnt pay more than $60 (I recently acquired a copy with box and no manual for this price range) but some have paid well over $100. A copy sold two weeks ago in a lot with 3 crap games for $83 on epay.

Binary Land - CIB 100% (Like new) or New.

A bit of background on me. I am about to finish a small but quite longing collection of Super Nintendo games, NTSC, all Brand New Sealed - 3 games to go of 45 - almost like $4k with the high priced ones. Unlike the SNES I had as a kid which was a U.S SNES; I had a Famicom for my NES years - to do justice and for my loved passion for the small carts I will collect the games of my childhood for the platform I played them in. I have been out of the Famicom scene for quite some time as I spent a lot of time(1 1/2 yrs) on my SNES collection. I have been recommended to come here and join this community from a couple of friends at NA and Sealed Game Heaven. Anyway, I'll appreciate the input regarding the titles above. Ohh, no pirate carts.

Do you intend to buy from Japan or eBay?
I will give you some guide what they might cost in Japan...
I don't think anyone here knows all the prices exactly.

I base my estimations on the prices of other famicom games I have seen NIB, and then consider how rare and how popular the cart is.
It is likely totally wrong for several games.

Battle City - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 2000 yen
Bomberman - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - ?
Contra - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 8000 yen
Megaman - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - Rockman 1? - 20000 yen if you can find it.  
Super Mario Bros - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Super Mario Bros 3 - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Super Mario Bros USA(2) -- CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - ?
Duck Tales 1 + 2 - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 4000 each maybe
Castlevania -  CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - First one famicom cart? 30000 yen if you can find it. CV3 - 8000 yen
Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers - - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - Hmm 5000 yen
Adventure Island - - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Felix the Cat - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - No such famicom game
Rygar - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 5000 yen
Balloon Fight - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 10000 yen
Excitebike - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Galaga  - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 3000 yen
Galaxian - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 3000 yen
Jurasic Park - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - No such famicom game
Robocop 3 - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - No such famicom game
Sky Destroyers - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 2000 yen
Mappy - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 2000 yen
Macross - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 4000 yen
Star Force - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 3000 yen
Binary Land - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen

I really have no preference over where to have transactions. I have been an ebayer for a long time as would any collector. The only and major problem in the whole ordeal is that I don't know a thing about Japanese - the language. So there goes buying from Yahoo auctions, there goes buying from ebay jp etc - I really have 0 knowledge of Japanese. I figure this would be a big time impediment for many potential deals but definitely not the ultimate barrier. Considering that I got half of my  SNES sealed games on deals with other fellow collectors I am pretty sure that collecting Famicom will be the same. Half through official channels like ebay and half community involvement. For example, this site is in english so I am pretty sure I would end up dealing with some users here who might want to sell some of their copies or duplicates.

-------------------------------------------------------
Thanks a lot for giving me a price guide on some of those titles. The ones that you Identified as there being "no famicom" release I probably played them on pirate carts. I am moving slowly but steady on research about the titles I need - some which I figured I'll have to buy the NES release. Titles like Little Mermaid, TaleSpin - The NES- Only releases. I spent the last 2 days just writing down which titles I had played back in the day - 20 something yrs ago watching youtube vids etc. I want to get mostly all of the games on the list for the famicom and the NES-Only releases for last as they are easier for me to get where I hang....just pricier hehehehe.

I figure these are pirate carts then:

I got my Famicom when I was 6. The only legit Famicom carts I would get were gifts for my birthday or for ending school that my dad would buy from a store. Everything else I traded and ended up with some pirate carts hehe. I moved to the U.S and got into the SNES craze and the rest is history.

I spotted this one on ebay from a seller who has a bunch of CIB's . I guess it's fairly priced - 2k yen is about $26 dollars. I am not sure about the condition though. I still need to do some research about how the games came NIB. Like, did they came sealed? How to tell if they are new etc.......just like with SNES - I think SNES being harder with all the re-sealers I have had to deal with in the past. You'll see me often here asking stupid questions hehehe. I'll probably get ripped off a couple of times or buy  some fake NIB etc - part of the experience of being a collector.

I am talking about Sky Destroyer here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/220934529408?ssPageName=STRK:MEBOFFX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1427.l2649

I might be wrong on this, but I think a CIB Sky Destroyer is worth $5 at the most.

Famicom games are not sealed. You can often tell from the boxes if they have been in use. However, I don't think you can tell if a box has been opened once very carefully - unless it is one of the boxes with sticky lid-style to the sides. I recently ruined the lid of a NIB game that way. But people don't care about NIB games here anyways, I sell NIB or "like new" for less than 20$ (if I sell them at all).

The seller says on the description that it's new. I really can't tell eheh. I offered $14 + the shipping of course makes it $20. Seller declined. I decided not to offer more till I am sure I can tell the difference or get a copy from a trusted seller in the community.

Famicom games are not sealed. You can often tell from the boxes if they have been in use. However, I don't think you can tell if a box has been opened once very carefully - unless it is one of the boxes with sticky lid-style to the sides. I recently ruined the lid of a NIB game that way. But people don't care about NIB games here anyways, I sell NIB or "like new" for less than 20$ (if I sell them at all).

That is sad that few people care. It means a lot to me to get games new, unopened or like new with everything they came with in mint condition. It's like going back in time and getting them at the store. That is what it means to me, that feeling of hype etc that each release had at the time. I asked for "like new" copies because I had been told that most famicom games never came sealed but I though some might - and really had no idea about price - most seem cheap considering the U.S titles I collect - very expensive. So I am pretty good paying for new as long as I don't loose a leg while at it.

Either way as you said if one has been opened just once and hardly touched it would be hard to tell if that happened looking at the box alone. Nonetheless you can tell when the box was opened if you open the box and the game's baggie is wrinkled or the inserts are bent etc. It's really a shame that we don't have pictures or a written guide about NIB famicom games. I think a sticky thread with that info would be great to help newcomers + pictures are such a help!

I'll appreciate if anyone takes a few pics of 2 or 3 games NIB. That would give me an idea of what to look for.

Anyway, you guys think that the sky destroyer on ebay was opened?

It's really hard if not impossible to tell whether it has been opened or not.
You can never be sure in my opinion.

As far as I can tell there are none on eBay right now (only boxed ones), but how much would/could a cart only "Akumajou Densetsu" in good condition  go for these days?

When you open a NIB , you can tell if the lid is stiff. When you take it out, you will see if the cart is nicely tucked in the original plastic bag, the cart should obviously look unused, all the paper are under the cart (or where they should be, the manual can be above etc). You can also tell from the smell of it..

"never been opened" famicom is impossible to know.  Even VGA take out the content of famicom games before they grade it. But it has to be unused. I don't think it should matter if it has been opened once or not, what matters is that it is unused.

Akumajou Densetsu (Castlevania III) is around 20-30 $ on ebay. In Japan you can get it for less than 1000 yen, because it is relatively common.
