Huge retro game collection. • Page 2
Megadrive 32x BNIB - never used
Virtua racing deluxe
you get the picture completely mint condition
should I be excited if I have megadrive games with sealed sega stickers or are they irrelevant?

You're lucky if those Dreamcast games are in good boxes. I doubt they'll be worth much, but those cases are SO fragile it felt like you only had to look at them to break them.

Hah, stunning collection.
Dreamcast-wise - there's unfortunately nothing TOO valuable in amongst the games. It might be worth separating a few of the 'above-average' games for eBay (Shenmue 2, Fighting Vipers 2) - then sell the rest as a huge 'job lot' (many will be around the 99p to £2.99 mark on their own). It's a shame that you Uncle wasn't obsessed with buying two of every Japanese Dreamcast game release, too!
Make sure that anything that you DO sell on eBay (especially over £40-or-so) is sent via a courier that allows for a tracking number and insurance. Obvious, I know - but I know many people who have been stung by this when starting out on eBay.
There's no rush, though - take your time to research everything and you'll be fine. Sit for a few weeks and check out 'completed listings' on eBay.
'Buy It Now' listings with the 'Best Offer' option is perhaps a good idea for the higher value stuff, too.

A bit of a tip, I got stung by a PayPal scam (read it on my blog, link in footer). Make sure you:
Donít send to anywhere other than the Authorised address. EVEN if the person asks for pickup do not do it. The reason? You cannot prove someone has picked up the item which means if they get home with your stuff, they can reverse the PayPal payment and you donít have a leg to stand on.
Make sure you check postal addresses to see if itís a virtual office. It should go to an office or residential address where the person lives or works. Again, this MUST be approved.
Abide by everything PayPal say to you to make sure you remain protected. Keep photographs of EVERY item. PayPal may also ask for proof of purchase for the items, if they do... youíre fucked.
hahaha just opened a box 30 + game cube games - all the classics too, definitely gonna hold onto those.
I am signed off of work at the moment, developed a nasty condition called sarcoidosis - im off for a whole month so I have PLENTY of time to do my research, he's told me I can take a 25% cut of the sale too, which would be SWEET!!!
Gonna try to avoid Ebay i think, maybe get some proper collectors involved from sealed game heaven. Just registered there for posting rights.
gotta be a few 1000's worth of stuff here though surely.

Keeping my hands on these for the future.
Gamecube is totally sealed. think ill keep that for another 10 years.

Woah! Like to get my hands on those Mum.
Not a phrase I was hoping to utter in my lifetime.
I literally cannot believe I have all this stuff, it's incredible - like I said in previous post he was gonna bin the lot.
he sounds a bit mental to be honest. Why would you blow so much money buying stuff you don't use unless you're a collector (which you said he wasn't) only to chuck it all out at some point in the future.

amazing collection, hope you get your moneys worth
would defo stay off ebay if you are paitent
Ok, now we are talking!!! Gamecube is what I'm all about at the moment, my Gamecube collection is my favourite.
I see Starfox Adventures, I see Metroid Prime 1. That's 2 games right there on there own if sealed with red tear strip fetch anywhere between 100-200 pound region
You will quickly learn that Nintendo is where it's at in the game collecting world, all because they were clever enough to put tear strips on the seal so they are impossible to be forgeries (people do re-seal games)
Sealed Gamecube consoles I've not bought in a while but the last one I got was a Resident Evil 4 edition and was lucky enough to pay just £90 for it, completely sealed, and bare in mind, inside it will have a sealed copy of Resi 4 in it which alone can sell between 75-150, so your Gamecube with Windwaker could be anywhere between 300-500 if factory sealed, Wind waker alone sealed goes for like 150-200 sometimes
Totally mental right salaman, I agree entirely. He's a bit OCD with everything.
I'm keeping the GameCube definitely, wind waker was a Fav game of mine so for that reason alone. Only sealed GC game is eternal darkness which is valuable. This is such a daunting task - gonna take some time to think about where to go next, any suggestions would be welcomed anyone want first refusal on here on any of the stuff please go ahead and make me an offer.
What do you guys think of the megadrive games any good value there? Unopened 32x too that must be rare.
Err...why is there a snake in the baking tray?
I want a megadrive with golden axe 2!

Anything that's Nintendo related and sealed DO NOT SELL!
Seriously, Nintendo games with their red tear strip appreciate in value like you wouldn't believe.
@Ultrasoundwave - Grab some wood bub and get in line!

That is such an amazing collection. I could never have one like that myself because I would just want to play everything. I drooled a bit at the wind waker gamecube as well. How I wish he was my uncle and not yours lol
Im keeping the gamecube, and have eternal darkness sealed definitely. Unfortunately there's no megadrive only games. Anyone know if I can class the megadrive games with sealed sega stickers as new? I've registered on 'sealedgameheaven' so i can post this stuff on there, kind of hoping someone will buy the lot off of me for a good price. Such a shame he broke the seal on the N64 as it's never been out of its box.
It is taking some immense willpower not to unbox one of the saturns and play through guardian heroes.
