Countdown To Christmas Day 6 & 7 Finalists

Alright, here we have the first batch of finalists. The second batch and the voting will go up later today. The voting is going to extend until Friday once it goes live.

Once again, there were some amazing entries. thanks to everyone who participated.

1. Yoshi’s Story International Version Demo Cart

Sold for $82.77

Apparently, this Nintendo 64 cart was rumoured to be in existence for N64 collectors, but had yet to be confirmed. One collectors just vaguely remembered seeing one during the N64 heyday in Japan. Oddly, it’s U.S. release game according to the serial code (NUS-USA/CAN-1), but the text is all in Japanese.

Sidenote: Michael, you’re a great writer. Interested in some guest posts sometime?

It included:

Game Boy Pocket Famitsu Edition – Only sold with a magazine of the same name.Game Boy Pocket Famitsu Edition

Game Boy Pocket Imagineer – Never sold at retail, only given out as a gift at a presentation of an N64 game. Only 2000 produced.

3. Grand Theft Auto III (PS2) Signed By Jack Thompson

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Jack Thompson. If so, than you know the irony that this auction presents. Personally signed at this year’s VGXPO in Philadelphia where Mr. Thompson participated in an open panel debate about violence in video games. Also, 100% of the sale will go to the Child’s play charity.

Now, I have to credit skcin7 for listing this auction, specifically to enter this contest. That wasn’t forbid in the rules, so I applaud his ingenuity. However, couldn’t you have at least thrown us a link in the auction?

BIN: $4,000.00

Sidenote: I just read that Wikipedia Entry on Jack – Wow… just wow.

4. Inflatable Game Station

11x17x10 inflatable station, with ultra comfy inflatable chairs, XBOX 360, 84″ adjustable screen and 7.1 surround sound speakers. Wow.

This baby could no doubt pay for itself if you set it up at a fair/carnival/festival.

One bid at $2,000 with one day to go.

5. Nintendo 64 Millennium Controller

Nintendo 64 Millennium Controller

This controller was offered in a Nintendo Power contest, and limited to 1000 units produced. Never available for sale, they were only available to winners of a random drawing. Even better, this is #1 of 1000! Seller states that this is the second one they have ever seen sold, and most are still unaccounted for by collectors.

BIN $199.99

  1. Thanks for the compliment Link! Yea I read your site multiple times a day and I rarely see the need to put my 2 cents in, but this contest seemed to be a good time to vent my Ebay searching woes.

    Being in Medical Grad School makes it hard to do stuff like this sometimes; especially since I already write for another site [for DVDs though]. But I would definitely be interested in being a guest writer on your fantastic site that is fun and dedicated to something I love; hookers….ummm….I mean video games.

    Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting,
    Michael P Dougherty II

    PS-I vote for myself!

  2. Re GTA3: Umm… I know it wasn’t against the rules, but that still seems a bit like cheating to me, especially since he doesn’t actually want to sell it. Might as well have everyone throw up an auction of the craziest thing from their collection and submit that, eh?

    Oh well. Good luck to all the finalists.

  3. Can I vote for my own auction? If so, I’d like to vote for the Grand Theft Auto III signed by Thompson.

    I added a link to Gamesniped in the auction.

  4. The voting won’t start until after all the auctions have been listed I would think, also I think it’s totally unfair to get to list your own auction for the contest, I know it sounds like sour grapes since I’m also listed here but I searched for it and I could have just made up a listing that would have gotten me on the list with a BIN price so high I would never have needed to pay up.

  5. jcalder8, that’s exactly what I’m talking about! But I guess since Link already chose it, it’s not going to make a difference now.

  6. I v ote for the gameboys auction. It’s a pity they sold such low, IMHO the auction deserved to end at well over US$1000 – I would get all those items myself if I saw that auction first!

  7. How are we supposed to vote if we only have half of the auctions, and the contest end today? Where’s Link? Maybe they lost power again…

  8. Yeah, I was just thinking that… They must be having some crazy weather over there (or some very unreliable utility service). Hope you come back soon Link!
