Yard Sale Finds #17 – I Guess I was Wrong. And a Preview of What’s Next

I had honestly thought that I had seen the last of this year’s yard sales when I made my last post.  I was wrong!  There were only a few that crossed my path, but they did yield a handful of video games for my collection.

What you see above ran me $3.40.  I know you’re probably thinking, “Where the hell did 40 cents come from?!”.   Here’s the deal…

I ran across Paper Mario first.  The asking price was $1.50, which is a great deal.  I had a lone single, and 40 cents in my pocket(I didn’t want to break a bigger bill because I was a dime short).  The lady running the sale said, “close enough.”, and I was on my way.

The Mickey Mouse SNES game is one I’ve never played before, and was a no-brainer at $1.  Pokemon Blue from Gameboy was also a great deal at $1.  I could probably seel it for way more money than I paid for it, but I actually enjoy playing the Gameboy Pokemon games(when Pokemon Yellow was released back in ’98-’99, it was the reason I bought a Gameboy Color).  So, a pretty small haul, but some nice additions(and all for Nintendo cystems, no less!).

And here’s a hint of what’s coming up next.
