View Full Version : NES box

01-23-2015, 10:45 AM
For those of you who don't know, I am a real estate appraiser. A good portion of the work I do is bank owned foreclosure properties. Every now and then I come across a house where it seems the people just up and left most of their stuff. A lot of it is crap, but every now and then you find something interesting. My best scores are old books and an unopened Scrabble game (I know, not really a big deal). Yesterday, I found this; just the box, not the console (I already have one). I have always wanted the box though.

I have the box with R.O.B. on it. :wave: Well, actually, my parents actually have it in storage, but Gyromite and all that still inside. Too bad I opened it and played it, it might be worth a pretty penny right now. Maybe two pennies.

Nice score!

That's cool. I still have my original NES. Though I do not have the original box.

I am a carpenter. Used to build homes for a living until the real estate market went sour. The company I used to work would purchase old houses every once in awhile. My boss would fix them up and then rent them out.

Never found anything really interesting. Found an old bowling pin in one house and most other stuff we found was just junk.

Carpenter here as well. Before getting into the appraisal business I framed houses and built/installed high end custom cabinets.
