This weeks Find of the Week is a bit more that what I found the previous week. I went to a vendor I’ve frequented for a few years now and he always goes out of his way to get and save the things that I will buy. One of the best pieces of advice I can give anyone thinking of starting any collection is to be loyal to your suppliers; even if you just stop in and only spend a dollar, be nice and learn their name. It may take some time for them to get to know you and of course, you don’t want to come off as creepy. That same supplier will remember you and someday may have the one game you’ve been looking to add to your collection for months. Jose; if you’re reading this, thank you and I’ll see you next week.
Here is the Find of the Week: Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV: Wall of Fire for Super Nintendo. This is game goes for around $12 on eBay and is worth about half of what I paid for the entire lot. As you tell from the picture below, there is some sticker residue on the cartridge. The residue won’t be a problem at all to remove. This turn-based strategy game was releases in July of 1995 and is a must have for any collector.
Some of the games and definitely the system need to be cleaned up, but after they are given some love, they will look good as new. I will be posting a few things based off of what I’ve found this week so look forward to seeing that in the near future.
