I once picked up a complete boxed copy of Sensible Golf for 50p at a car boot sale

Not quite the same thing but in my unemployed days (I posted a thread about this too ) I used to do voluntary work in a charity shop here in Norwich and a Sega Saturn came in, with about eight games. All the games were boxed but the console wasn't, it was in a bit of a state actually. But we weren't allowed to sell electrical stuff so I got it all for free, gave it a bit of a clean when I got home and it all worked perfectly

Some of the car booters wanted crazy prices for things, there was the most yellowed amiga 500 I have ever seen, the keyboard looked like dog hair had been stuck on over layers of cola, the box was a soggy ripped mess, guy said " These fetch good money on Ebay boxed...I`ll take 50 for it !! "

Anyway, don`t know much about dreamcasts, not really my thing, to modern and too much 3d going on !! - might try to swap it for a nice C64 breadbin or something.

Sure, and that's why he sell it via a car boot sale.
