Certainly a collection this big belongs to someone well known, especially the Neo stuff. :eek:

Starting bid: 64,816.32?--Did the guy just think that a rounded number was gonna end-up being too low or too high (compared to this)?!

That last 16 dollars and 32 cents pushed it over the edge for me. Oh well.

Thought the same thing. They should have a counter on that page to help drive the frenzy too.

Really wondering who's collection this is. It's a Neo fan first and foremost judging from what's there.

What an awful auction. So many colors - it makes my eyes water. He doesn't even list everything. Like the 32X he says "30 games - blah blah" then only lists maybe 8 or 9 and then ends it with "...", and some shit is cryptic like Sega Master System "lots of games, including mail order game"

Dumbass needs do a complete overhaul on this if he's wanting to get anybody to seriously evaluate it. Bulletpoints - List all the systems, and the games for each system, and whether or not they're complete. No stupid colors, changing up the fonts, bolding, italicizing random shit - make it detailed and easy to read. And for fuck's sake, take more than one picture that shows more than random shit I don't even know what I'm looking at because you ran some weirdass filter over everything.

This auction really reads like those ones some dude was posting over and over again last year, where he was like, "You'll get tons of games (giant block of unreadable text) for only 10 000 dollars".

The guys name is Jon, I bought a couple games off him in the past.

He has been putting up these silly auctions for over a year now.

He is just throwing out a line to see if he catches anything. Pretty sad.

Is he a Neo collector? Local to you?

Collectors would just copy all that text into Word, run a check for "Stadium Events", found out it's not among his stuff and said f' it. Who is he going to catch? XD

Not local to me, I dealt with him through ebay a few times when he was auctioning off some saturn stuff several year back.

Ah, cool. Thanks. Just wanting to find out more about this listing. As others have said, the listing is shit, but that's quite the collection, particularly the Neo stuff. He's missing a lot of the 'big' games, but it's still an impressive collection.

It's mine. Sorry for the Comic Sans, it gives me a huge erection and that little touch of technicolor princess stick class this auction needs.

In all honesty I think this is one of the worst auctions I have ever seen, and that photo is horrible, and I think you can probably argue somehow somewhere this is violating a TOS. This should be removed, and shouldn't even be linked.

This appears to be the collection of a loser.

It makes me ashamed to have accumulated even a fraction of that stuff. I really need to start reducing my collection.

You should just give your collection away, like charity. It's not like you need the $ from the sales.

Heck you should give your collection away to African kids, you might even get your own TV special.

I would pay to see Bobak teaching starving African children how to play Magical Drop in a reality show-style.

Obviously giving a collection away or even for a "good price" is stupid. The recipient will turn around and sell it for the market price or higher, as seen time and time again here.

Speaking from experience, huge collections like this should never be sold as a lot. The seller probably isn't encumbered by anything time consuming, (a life, a job, etc.) so there's no reason why he shouldn't maximize his profit potential and ability to liquidate the items by slowly piecing out the huge lot.

I like how the seller states "100% all original..." right at the beginning, then list some Conversions in eye squinting font somewhere in the middle, camouflaged by all the vibrant colors.

Guess that 100% is rounded up from 99.5%. XD
