The Most Insane Nintendo Collection Ever Is Up For Sale

Have you ever wanted about a hundred sealed Nintendo 64's for your collection, but just couldn't find anyone with that many consoles for sale? Well today is your lucky day! (Nintendo 64, Retro)

That is really incredible looking at all those sealed boxes and cases. I was in awe just looking at the pictures.

If I were filthy rich; I would totally buy this for only one reason:

To distribute all of these brand new controllers to needy households everywhere. I can't remember the last time I encountered an n64 controller that doesn't have a wobbly joystick.

And guess what ladies.... he's single!

He'll never get anywhere near $65,000 for that stuff, or at least not all in one shot. If this guy actually wants to get the maximum amount of money out of all of this, he's going to have to try to sell everything individually over a 3 or 4 year period.

Wait a minute...
What honest collector would have all this stuff? Did he go around buying an N64 every week? And if so--wtf? Collectors *collect* rare and valuable items, not horde commonly-found stuff.

I can't help but think either most of this lot was purchased from liquidated inventory or they're stolen goods from a big retailer (a lot of them are labelled 'Toys R Us').

no store that actually sells retro consoles is going to stock that many N64 consoles, and certainly not that many controllers.

Holy smokes, Batman. I wish I had the money for this collection.

I have a nice lockpick set and no sense of shame, now we just need a moving van.

That is EXACTLY my problem in life!

The story on that auction is fake, both accounts are still active and the supposed dead son actually recently was on NintendoAGE making n64-related purchases.
Parapraxis  +   1211d ago
Yeah a bit sketchy.
The seller who claims to be a parent, and also claims to be ignorant of Nintendo stuff, bought stuff as recently as Oct 3rd.
Why would somebody who is trying to sell this giant lot be adding to it?
http://myworld.ebay.com/squ...

on Sept 15th the seller bought SEALED STAR WARS NINTENDO 64 SYSTEM Price:US $1,350.00

Sept 30th Rare New Legend of Zelda Collector's Lot - Price: $390.00

Oct 3rd Nintendo 64 N64 Ice Teal Blue Controller NOS New Sealed - Price: US $142.50

They key to knowing the story is BS is here in the comments section at the bottom of the sale page:

"A: The dog died 3 years ago. ebay doesn't let just anybody sell $65k items. >>>> I've been a member since 2002.<<<< You are protected by ebay with any purchase. "

So the person selling the stuff claims to be the account owner, who is buying rare Nintendo products..YET also claims to be a parent who has a son who collected this lot, and they are selling it "Don't take advantage of my difficult times and my ignorance on Nintendo items."
BULLS**T!

Plus how does somebody who doesn't even know what Nintendo is know what VGA is? (VGA=Videogame Authority, the grading service for sealed/rare items.) But yeah, it's a load of crap. Still a nice collection, but it sucks the seller is a sleaze.
YoungPlex  +   1211d ago
Wow, your right! Why would they make up this story? I know why but, that's just low... Anyway, great job pointing that out!
Dasteru  +   1210d ago
@Para & 3Gen:

All of that was clearly explained in the Ebay post if you had bothered to read it.

The recent purchases were made by her husband and a friend of her son who also enjoyed collecting those things.

As for the VGA grading, The seller also clearly states fairly early in the post that she had gone to a local video game collector shop to get information on the stuff and that they explained the VGA to her.

Learn to read before making your selfs look like ignorant a'holes.

@YoungPlex, No not good job. the guy is clearly a degenerate a'hole that doesn't know how to read and goes around searching for ways to insult random people for his own ammusement.

Wow Ebay drama
ChunkyLover53  +   1211d ago
Dang, that is crazy! I have about twenty boxed N64 games and a perfect condition Episode 1 Pod Racer N64 still in the box, I thought my collection was pretty good, but this is sweet!
YoungPlex  +   1211d ago
OMG the Game&Watch Zelda game! For those of you not old enough to remember, that was the FIRST DS system ever created by Nintendo, not the Nintendo DS. I used to tell my friends about it and they used to think I was crazy and made it up...

OT: This is an amazing collection, just makes me sad that the son died and left these precious belongings to someone that knows nothing of them, his mom (no offense), who's selling this collection quite cheap if you ask me... But honestly I think it's shady that she's selling her son's collection instead of keeping it. I know that if it were my son, I would cherish it and pass it down... Based on those pictures she looked well off so why sell it?

I admire this man and wish him a safe journey to the other side.

If I was loaded with money....It would probably go to medium rare steaks everyday.

This is cool, but not worth anything. Pretty cool collection though.

So cool.. money would be a nice

To buy some
MattyG  +   1210d ago
This guy is kinda being a jackass in the Q&A section. I honestly don't think he'll be able to get rid of this as one big sale,
Old McGroin  +   1210d ago
Cool collection but the sellers story is bull.
guitar_nerd_23  +   1210d ago
I don't see the point of collecting multiples or the value of sealed products.

I collect consoles and games in a modest way comparatively but my collection is intended to be played with, otherwise what's the point? It's just hoarding away cool stuff that someone could play with.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1210d ago
Well judging from what this seller says, he had used N64s and probably used versions of the games that are sealed.
wnek9  +   1210d ago
would probably make more selling them seperately over time
SnakeCQC  +   1210d ago
damn my childhood flashes before my eyes and i want it lol

That is an impressive collection, but I gotta ask, who the HELL buys that many N64's and at what price did he pay for them?! Somehow I doubt he convinced mommy and daddy to pay full price for 60+ systems, games, and controllers.

This isn't just a collection of different games with a FEW versions of systems. It has 19 versions that come with the extra controller and 10 plain!! Plus all the Pikachu versions.
