SMS Collection For Sale

Post by stvd » Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:59 am

Just to let you know, this isn't mine.
It was sent to me by a fellow member of another group of collectors.
His collection isn't complete but he's only missing a couple.
Ideally, he'd like to sell it as one lot but if he has no takers then it's getting split and put on ebay.

For any SMS collectors could be a chance to find something you've been looking for.

Just curious, how much would that collection be worth? I never got that many SMS games at the time (I was more of a Nes guy) and might be interested depending the price.

Hi stvd,

I don't want another arguament, but you have really slagged me off and made me look like an idiot just for doing the same thing - selling my retro collection.

This smacks a little of double standards to me.

Nooo Adrian noooooo ;)

If that was stvd's first post then he would be treated the same way for joining and trying to flog his (friends) wares.

Hes been at this site quite a while though !

Yes, my friend once asked me if I wanted to buy his car. That was exactly the same as the random guy who approached me in the street asking me to buy a motor, no questions asked.

Got a big SMS collection, but it's nowhere near as good as this.

Love to buy it but simply cannot afford it and i don't have the space.

My best guess at a value? £1000?

An update on price. Well, not really..........

"leaning more to listing it on ebay probably broken up, but I am open to offers."

So no help there but I guess anyone with good knowledge of the SMS will have a fair idea of it's value.
