Arcade Weekends

For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable than their own authentic arcade machine. NOW IT IS THE BEGINNING OF A FANTASTIC STORY…’s Arcade Weekends.

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.

From Carol Stream, Illinois: Super Hang-On from Sega, BIN at $299, seller will ship for $380.

From Indianapolis, Indiana: Cruis’n World, BIN at $650, buyer arranges shipping if needed.

From Millburn, NJ: The Simpsons, $495 LPU, screen needs some adjustment repair.

From Ringgold, Georgia: Mario Bros. spotless, $900, will ship from North American Van Lines at buyer’s expense.

From Mount Zion, Illinois: Marvel vs. Capcom, BIN at $575, seller will ship COD.

Same seller, same price, same deal: Donkey Kong Jr.

From Chicago, Illinois: Pac-Man and Mario Bros TOGETHER in the same auction, buyer arranges shipping if needed, reserve not met at $500.

Tune in next week for more!
