Trophy Room 2015
This year was OK, one semi-rare find and a few other decent things.
Mortal Kombat I & II for Game Boy
This has been on my eBay saved searches for a while and it's always overpriced there. On my first visit to Half Price Books this year I spotted it for roughly 1/2 of the going eBay rate. Neither game is great but it brings me one step closer to having a complete collection of the Mortal Kombat I & II home versions.
Sack of PC games
These came from a depressing estate sale. I say that because the recently deceased clearly had a computer hoarding problem. Every room of the house (OK, I didn't check the bathrooms) was filled with stacks of old computers and 3.5" disks. Given infinite free time I would have enjoyed ripping all the disks to preserve some long forgotten software. Lacking that, I filled a $10 bag with some games I'll actually play.
Video game pogs
I was at a garage sale and spotted a binder filled with pogs for $5. I leafed through it out of curiosity when the guy running it said "you can have that for $2". Right as he spoke those words I spotted some neat-o video game pogs and took him up on his offer. The downside is I'm now stuck with ~200 pogs which maybe I can ebay to break even.
This will probably go down as the best find of the year. I went to a nearby estate sale and this beauty was in a closet wedged between several old pocket dictionaries and other 90s devices made obsolete by smartphones. Priced at $5, they clearly didn't know what they had. Since video games at estate sales are usually horribly overpriced I didn't feel guilty.
