Found the reserve a little further down. Guess it's holding strong until the closing minute so it doesn't exceed it by too much.

Quote
On Aug-10-16 at 04:39:45 PDT, seller added the following information:

Reserve is 1700


Now that people know the reserve, I wonder how many of those bids are just people bidding for the fun of it? A re-seller may put in a last minute bid but at that price I'm not sure there's any profit to be made. I could see it going unsold.

Wow, I wouldn't know what to do with one of those let alone 4. But yeah, that would help justify the high price imo (lol)
Might strip them to cannibalize the shells but that's about it. :D

I did not know this sort of stuff also happened on Amazon.  You have to check out this particular item:  Nintendo Entertainment System Console

Maybe I should sell my NES.  It's the 101 model.  I wonder how much more I could get for mine?!

That's absurd to me, but I guess to a collector it could be a great deal.
