Another fundraiser..

This fundraiser is multiple lots we have been offered for our museum, most of these are extremely early systems, and many contain unreleased games and history that would other wise be lost.

The goal for this is split into groups, we have awhile to sort this one and lots would be paid as funded. The total includes paypal fee's added and shipping costs included excluding taxes, we put 10% as we're often charged different rates depending on donators locations.

Sadly it seems the pandemic has a sell off occurring ; I’ve seen more AES games for sale recently than I’ve ever seen before. That means the scammers know it too! So I made this. Don’t get burnt and lose your shirt on repros / conversions passed off as the real thing!

The first time I was ever scammed was buying a large lot of MVS games off Craigslist when I was around 16 (2009). I traded a bunch of CPS1/2 stuff for them. Ended up making about $100 back, selling them off as counterfeits for what was supposed to be about $1000-1500 trade from some asshole in Florida. It was only then I realized how professional bootlegs could be, before opening games was even standard operations as it is nowadays. You had nothing to compare them to like the databases we have now.

I promptly got out of arcade games after that mishap. There is way too much piracy/bootlegs compared to anything else (maybe GBA pokemon games as far as volume of fakes), back then at least. Very high quality. Now everything is completely upside down, I wouldn't even trust a Mario Kart N64.
