After all the news coverage of WATA I never would have thought I'd be the owner of one of their graded products. VGA, PSA, etc. or any graded game at all really. $70 for a 9.8 A++ was hard to pass up though.
That's how much my new PS5 games are so a vintage game graded or sealed is in that range to me. Mostly cause it's getting opened and played. It does look kinda neat floating in its case. But I'm not in the market for bookends. And this Dreamcast is going good but it doesn't like scratches. What people deem as good, very good, and like new is highly suspect.
So as the market rights itself from inflated nonsense I can get back to collecting and playing what I collect now.
