Video game collection for sale...

...only ten million.

Seems legit.




Seriously though, I'm sorry about her husband, but aside from needing a reality check I think that anyone trying to sell an expensive product should employ a bit of professionalism to grease the wheels for potential customers; specifically, list the games in alphabetical order and use a damn spell checker.

I don't see nearly that worth pictured or listed... but I'll take her word for it. Her name is Biblelady after all. And from feedback it doesn't look like she's ever sold anything on Ebay before. No way this could be bs.

Maybe I've gotten jaded, but in the last week I've seen at least 5 horror story ebay posts... one from a woman who's husband was in the hospital in a coma with a terrible injury and she *needed* to sell a laptop for $3k to help with the bills. When I glanced at that account's "other items" there were 5 other things up for sale... every item posted within about half an hour all together, and half of them were posted by the "husband" who had the exact same spelling and grammar issues the "wife" had.


But damn, I miss my Phantasy Star Master System copy. >.<

Potential fake story aside there's nothing anywhere near that value, as you noted, which is why this is funny.

The pictures certainly seem like they're taken by a woman with no idea what would be important in a massive collection. ... And a woman with no photography skill.

I think you'd better go for Buy it Now at $15 million just to be sure.

Unfortunately they are not selling it outside the US. Shame really, with that free postage and shipping, I would have snapped it up. You wouldn't believe what most people expect for postage.

I was thinking about, with no intention of actually doing this, buying up any copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga that I see selling for around 200. Scalping eBay auctions would artificially inflate the scarcity, driving prices up. At this point I could sell them back slowly for like 400 a piece.

I seriously think doing this would be feasible.

But apparently I can sell all my not-even-remotely rare genesis games for WAY more than that!!!
