Huge collection, but the auction lacks complete list of all titles. No one (sane) will bid 4500 euro's based on just 2 badly take digital photo's... or would you?

I don't know about you, but I can easily recognize some titles that go for 30 to 100 euro each here in Europe. Many recognizable boxes in there.

Here is what I see (or think to see):
- FM-PAC
- MIDI saurus
- many different konami MSX1 and MSX2 games (Frogger, Pennant Race, Hinitori, F1-Spirit 3DSpecial, etc...)
- Fray
- DeJa (can't miss that one Tongue)
- Snatcher
- Dragon Knight
- Dragon Slayer
- Sorcerian
- Xak series
- Tower of Cabin
- Romancia
- Arkaoid 2
- Hydlide
- Tetris
- Y's
- many many more

Too bad there are no laserdiscs thou Smile

K.. Many recognizable boxes in there.

Bart and I invested about 1500 euro in games about 1 1/2 year ago. I took months before we got our stuff, it took one year total to sell all, with a few bucks profit. Basically that amount of money was a big risk already. Profit nowadays is less than before, because most collectors all have the common, and uncommon titles. So you have to go to ebay. Now, I sold my own collection before, and believe me packaging and shipping180 items besides a job of 60 hours a week was hell. So we gonna do 400+ titles? Don't think so.

12 euro a title. Some make 30 euro indeed. But some will be broke, not complete, empty whatever or just plain shit. Those will sell for 5 euro.

I know a good deal here. I need 100 people who will donate 70 euro to the MSX Resource Center. From that money we buy this lot and everybody who donated can get 4 titles for free, including shipping. Of course you need to be at our place one day to clean and test all the boxes, carts, disks etc because we really can not do that for 400 titles. Please bring your own MSX for this. Cookies on the house. Wink

After shipping, packaging materials, stamps, broken marriages etc. the MSX resource center still has about 8 euro per donation for the site. that means one year free hosting! wow... Tongue

Nah, I rather put some money on the MRC bank account and enjoy my free time. Which of course goes partially to this site. oO

Good luck with the auction!
