I got a Colecovision, in box, never used with Donkey Kong cartridge pack in and about 15 random unboxed carts for $30 about 3 years ago at a garage sale.

12 Atari 2600 games for $10 ($0.99 each buy 5 get 6th free) I'd like to go back and get more, I also saw a turbografx-16 (aka PC engine) in box (not new) with I think 6 games for $100 I didn't get it because I had no idea what they were worth, and next time I went there it was gone :(

the craziest thing I ever got was a C64 and 70 games at a carboot years back.  It started to rain like mad and the guy basically said 'just take it' - I think I gave him a quid or something - he clearly wanted rid of it.  All worked fine, but have since passed it on to a friend due to lack of space.  Don't know why I don't carboot more - something to get into in 2012
