FS: Immaculate (like new) Virtual Boy that needs solder fix

Hi, guys

Another user here suggested I post this in the marketplace.

I bought two Virtual Boy consoles new in 2005 from Media Play when they were on sale. One for my kids. The other was to save as a collector's item.


I stored this Virtual Boy in the attic with our other electronics.
When I opened it up a while back, the display was glitchy.
I tried the low heat fix without success.


I decided to have it repaired, and boxed it up in my office.
Yesterday (after a few months), I fired it up again and got no display at all. I spoke with NES Freak today, and plan to send it to him for repair.


I prefer not to have it shipped back to me, then pay for shipping again to an eBay buyer. It's extra cost, more trouble, and not good for the console to be shipped cross country multiple times.


If anyone is interested, maybe NES Freak could ship it directly to the new owner when it is repaired and verified.


So... Here's what I have.
Everything is in near mint condition.
(I played it for an hour or so when I first got it, then
packed it up)

- Original Box with proof of purchase certificate
- Owners manual, special offers, quick start, etc

- Console unit

- Stand

- Controller

- Battery pack

- 'Free Batteries' card that goes on top

- Virtual Tennis game (with booklet if that's important)


Here are some pictures I shot today in my office.
Sorry about posting attachments. I don't know how to put them inline.

I don't do this as a business.
I'm just a geek that thought Virtual Boy was cool enough to collect. I have sold personal items on eBay for a LONG time, an d could provide a link to a Virtual Tennis game listed there now if anyone wants to see my ratings.
I'll not do that unless asked (and if it is ok).

Hopefully this doesn't come across as SPAM.
I used, and appreciated, the info on this site when I encountered the display issues. It was nice to find real information here. Most of the other info I found online was junk.

I would love to hear your opinions on fair pricing should I put it on eBay. Of course, direct offers are also welcome.
Maybe any offers should be via PM? Is that the practice here?

(I briefly discussed the possibility of letting NES Freak buy it directly. He was kind enough to call, so I want to keep that option open to him as well.)

Thanks!

-Fred

Itís not a very professional picture. Thereís too much glare.
But it shows the cart is in great condition.
Iíll retake it and upload later.

It will be shipped from the Atlanta, GA area.

I was almost certain I had the booklet, too.
Iíll look again, but that may be the only of my games without a booklet.

Authentic Jack Bros. With booklet. Best place to sell?

Hi, guys

Thank you for running this forum!
I bought a couple of VB consoles and some games new when a local store was closing in 2005.

One of the games was Jack Bros.

Itís in near mint condition and I still have the instruction booklet.
No box or paperwork. Just the game, cover, and instructions.


I donít game much anymore, so will be selling it.
Can anyone suggest a good place to sell such a rare game?

If you were selling one, what is the least you would want for it?
I donít want to price gouge anyone, but donít want to be foolish, either.

And if anyone here wants it,let me know!

Iíve also got 3d Tetris and Nesterís bowling.


Thanks!
