Selling off the originals to free up cash for the new collection? Best wishes on the auction. The 3rd game alone can command very high prices these days.

It sold for $133 not counting shipping. Good or bad?

Sounds fair to me. I was thinking 3rd game market value around $100 and the other two each between $10-20 loose.

I had those games since I was a kid (I had them since the early 90's), hard to believe I don't need them anymore due to the collection.

I can't believe you got rid of them at this time. The prices for old school games like those is sky rocketing. I bet in 2 years from now Radical Rescue will be worth 200 bucks. I am so glad that I got my copy of it for 35 bucks 5 or 6 years ago.

That's all speculative. It's true that prices have spiked, but it's impossible to tell whether it will continue, by how much, and what one might gain by waiting to sell. In the end, if the seller made peace with parting with the items, then it's a nice little bonus he got for selling the games.

We're in the year 2022, not 2005 anymore. Gameboy Games are over 30 years old now, and now that we're going to have a modern collection the games will be easily to play for modern audiences, so I think the opposite will happen. Price for these games have already been up (as I said they sold for $133, which is fine by me).

What am I to do, keep these until the year 2030? That's only 8 more years from now, oddly enough, I doubt the prices will change that much.

I said similar things about my v4 #29, MOC Scratch and Albedo 2 when I sold them 10+ years ago. Ah, hindsight.

It's already been nearly 30 years, they're old enough. I don't need to wait till I'm 50 years old to sell them.

Whenever you something "collectible," there's always that nagging "what if?" in the back of your head. But it's impossible to predict, and holding onto stuff indefinitely on the chance that it becomes even more valuable is a gamble. At a certain point, you just have to make peace with having sold it and move on. Besides, we're talking $133. Even if the price of that game quadruples over the next couple of years, it would be irritating but it's not like you're talking mega bucks or anything.
