Arcade Weekends

For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable in the whole wide world than their own authentic arcade machine. It’s another Arcade Weekends, and remember, Winners Don’t Use Drugs.

I will point out every week that arcade units purchased from auction sites usually have inflated prices — unless you live close enough to the seller that you can pick the unit up yourself. Many sellers know this and list their items as Local Pick-Ups only (marked here as LPUs). If you DO live near any of today’s sellers, some of these deals aren’t bad.

This one’s interesting. From Rhinelander, Wisconsin: San Francisco Rush: The Rock, $650 BIN or best offer, LPU or local delivery possible depending on distance. TWO units offered here; one per auction price, and yes, they can link together.

From Coweta, Oklahoma: Defender, BIN at $899 or best offer, seller will ship freight COD.

From Rochester, NY: NFL Blitz/NBA on NBC combo unit, LPU or buyer arranges shipping, current bid as of this writing is $201,50. Great potential mancave material here.

From Broomall, Pennsylvania: Gauntlet Legends, LPU or ask the seller for a shipping price, current bid price as of this writing is $227.50.

From Fresno, California: Galaga, current bid as of this writing is $202.50, ask for shipping quote outside of California.

From Lake Grove, NY: Amazing-looking Punch-Out unit, LPU, ends soon with only one bid at $600.

From Lynbrook, NY: Crazy Taxi, LPU, BIN at $1075 but ends soon with no bids at $695.

From Ringgold, Georgia: Millipede, BIN at $775 or best offer, LPU or E-mail seller for a shipping quote.

Blame the lack of witty remarks today on a busy schedule.
