I've been half-looking at buying another AES, kinda missing the one I had a while back. They seem to vary quite a bit on eBay, what's a reasonable price for one in halfway decent shape? Just want to play it, so no box needed. Strongly prefer that it have Unibios though, seems like most listings do?

Anyone have ideas what a set of eccs19 vinyls from late 2009 are worth? Additionally, I also have the cover to a 4 slot mvs?

Bare unit goes for 300/350ish on ebay. But this is something else and i dunno what being total white could lessen value.

It is perfectly working and has the MKL jailbar removal mod being a 3-6 model
Also has a power led
Bought already in white while Neogeo Sticker on top is my personal touch

Added some prices that should be in the current ballpark if the carts/labels are in good condition. Marquees, around $15 or so especially for harder to find ones like Nam or Overtop no more than $10 for commons

Any ideas on Big Red pricing these days? I'm looking to move mine sometime in the future, as I don't really want it around anymore... It's a 100% original 2-Slot in very clean condition. All original artwork, CP overlay, and marquee. Original tube with recapped chassis, but the reds don't seem as vibrant as they should. Replaced the sticks and buttons, IL sticks and Happ buttons w/ Cherry D44X switches. 06/1992 build date, so it's turning 30 years old this year.

I would say $800-1400. Depending on where you are located. Big Reds were $400-500 here in a LA 2-3years ago, but market is crazy.

I'm in the PDX area. Seems like a bit of a hot spot for this hobby, west coast at least.

I think all those are at least $200 now. Alpha Mission maybe $250-300, Nam and Magician Lord maybe up to $250.

Most of the cheap non-fighting game stuff has all gone up

MVS or AES? If AES, you're looking around $350-$400 for each of those titles. Some prices for Alpha Mission 2 are hovering around the $500 mark - but that's a little high, even in mint condition. For MVS, heihachi's estimates are on point. :)

You'll want to charge on the higher end of those estimates if you want to sell via ebay to cover fees. If private sales, like on the market place here, on the lower end.

Even "cheap" MVS games are out of reach of most folks. Games that were 50-80 bucks just a couple years ago have shot up since the pandemic considerably.

didn't look up anything, so just rough ballparks. the real bouts are your biggest ticket items and also don't come up much so have the most variation. check neostore.com for prices on the (very) high-end:

kof 98 -- ~1k to 1.5k
AOF2 -- ~300-400
RBFF -- ~2.5k to 4k
RBFFS -- ~3k to 4.5k
SS3 -- 600-1k

Edit: OK out of curiosity checked neostore. They have RBFF listed for $7500 and RBFFS listed for $9500. They also have SS3 for $2200. I think you'll struggle to find any buyers at those prices and frankly think those prices are crazy, but like I said they don't come up much so maybe you'll get lucky

@Gamemaster I agree with @heihachi - You're going to struggle to find buyers for US AES games outside of Ebay, and even then your game will sit in limbo for quite some time unless it is priced aggressively to sell. At those high-end prices, though, and Ebay's outrageous 14% bullshit seller fees, you'll have to be careful how you price. Games of this "value" are also hard to sell on forums.

That's a bit of a rub with high-end game acquisition. If you need to resell the items, even though they are deemed "valuable" in the market, they are not easy to unload and will take time. If you want a quick sale, selling directly to the Neo Store will be your best bet. I would also imagine that whatever they offer you wouldn't be far off what you'd get back from Ebay after selling the game at a bit of a loss and their 14% seller fees.

You could also bundle the games for a decent value and put them on Ebay. I've had more luck with bundles in the past for these types of sales. This market is too volatile right now for any sort of price chart averages, and all information on these forms is woefully out of date.

@heihachi and @yagamikun Thanks for your help and opinion. I actually got an offer for RBFF RBFFS for 6500$ if they are in mint condition. Basicly if they are in that good shape i think 8000-8500 is more the price to aim even when i substract 14% Ebay fees from the price its more like 7000$
I saw a bundle sale with AoF 1 and 2 sell for 2000$ so yeah maybe bundles would do better. However its hard to find pepople to pay thouse prices.
When i can do the price in person cash its not bad too.

I will ask Neo-Store for an offer too, that a good idea.
Many thanks you two ! I apreciate it.

I was going to post holographic MVS Slug X but Neo Store has a value. Less than I assumed it’d be.
