Thread: Rarity Guide

    Rarity Guide

    So, since I've moved, I've been getting some of my stuff out of storage. This includes a lot of old microcomputers, consoles, games etc. I basically never sold any of my stuff like that, and I kept my things is as best condition as possible. I began to notice a good few years ago just how much some of my stuff was worth, but never trusted a retro shop to value my stuff because A) half the time, these kids don't know what the fuck they are on about - and B) They are going to undervalue your stuff in the hope that you will part with it for a cheap price.

    Thankfully we now have these..

    http://www.rarityguide.com/

    http://www.retrogamingcollector.com/index.html



    The list is by no means complete, but if anyone has any retro stuff lying about, check the price of it. You could be sitting on some cash.

    I've been collecting this kind of stuff for years right up until now. The value is always going to rise on this stuff, especially since one day there will actually be no physical releases anymore.

    Some that I have are..

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/MUSHA-Sega-...kAAOSwnJVZmODu (I also have the manual for this one)

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Starcross-S...item2cc91f93c9 (good chance Druff or any other C64 Owners had this. I used to see this quite a bit when I was using the 64 all the time.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vectrex-Arc...MAAOSwwf5ZwrJw 2 of these (although one is fucked but I can fix it). And a shit ton of games for it.


    Also, those LCD games you used to get in the 80's and early 90's - those are worth stupid money now.

    LOL my VIC-20 is worth less than $100.

    I think my parents still have it around somewhere.

    Sadly, all the programs I wrote back then were on cassette tape, and those rarely lasted a year before going corrupt, let alone 35 years.

    I also have a Vic 20, complete with 2 16k memory expansions and some games on cart. I got this after my C64, just as a collectors item.

    Your tapes probably do still work. It was the datasettes that needed head cleaning or adjusting. I did this on my C64 and the tapes worked like new.

    Find that shit out if you can and upload it to the scene.
