Auction 14!

A small auction was held in Yardville NJ on the 27th by Best Auctions. Some nice pins were present but few video machines. I had a long talk with some operators on the listing of auction prices on the internet. Some are for it and some are against it, claiming it hurts their business. Here is my take: Auctions are a great place to pick up game cheaply, but it is not for the faint or heart. Most equipment need major work that many are not able to perform. Monitors need rebuilding, cases need repair, wiring inside needs to be done and even extensive work to PC boards must be completed before you have the nice pieces you see on my tribute pages. Other issues may include buy backs, where the seller wins the auctions because no one else present will go as high as the equipment is worth and will result in a lower then market value to be listed on my auction pages..
Remember, games are much like used cars. The 2 old Ford Pintos your looking at my be worth 2 very different values depending on the age, rarity, mileage, availability of parts and overall condition. Can you fix the car yourself (or fix the game in this case) or will you require a mechanic (or operator) to track down the parts and make the repairs. How will you get that car back to your house? (or the game to your house) Get the idea? On with the prices.

Remember, this is a listing of the Best Auctions, March 27th 1999 show. I do not own any of the games listed here, Do not have any tie ins to the sellers or the auction personal, and will ignore all Email asking to by any of these games. My for sale area is here, not below. :-)
