i would say it's one of the best VB auctions i've ever seen.. honest, to the point, and providing you with what you'll need to keep it working.

eventually i'd love to be able to do the solder repair on mine, but im not skilled enough yet, so it's the oven method for me for now.

My personal favorite is this auction up at the moment:

1. Common game? Check.
2. VGA Grading? Check.
3. Higher price than you would ever pay for #1? MEGA-CHECK:

nintendo game virtual boy RED ALARM sealed complete VGA 90+ MINT !!!!!

No doubt the game's in good condition, but Virtual Bowling it ain't. $1,500 is ridiculous.

The thing one always must keep in mind with listings that include a "Best Offer" option, though, is that the seller himself might think that the listed price is ridiculous and that nobody will ever click the "Buy It Now" button, so he simply wants to hear out offers. Some sellers want an offer pretty close to their listed price, but others are willing to accept much, much less.

Well, I know for a fact that those "Best offers aren't that cheep either. I drunkenly offered $500 one night instead of $50 and was met with immediate rejection on a similar unopened and graded game.

Don't drink and bid. That's how I ended up with 250 NES "Bible Adventure" cart stickers.

That's true, but I still don't think Red Alarm is worth $1500 in any form, haha. Maybe if it were a prototype on the order of difference of Space Pinball vs. Galactic Pinball. Actually, that'd probably be $5k or much, much more.

ANYWAY, for a "run of the mill" copy of Red Alarm, VGA graded or no, I wouldn't offer more than a few hundred, personally.

...but my collection doesn't look as nice as that guys', probably, haha.

This is the first time when I see a fool:

who is very quickly followed by another fool:

"Who's the more foolish... the fool or the fool who follows him?"
