|Mark and I went on a road trip November of last year and this letter was his response to my "cocky" questions about things that were happening at the time. Mark posts all of the result from various coin-op auctions he attends. He was getting constant messages asking to BUY games on the list. HELLO? He didn't BUY them, he reported the price. It got so bad that he now has a disclaimer that makes you click to acknowledge this before he shows you the prices. I help him gather the prices so some of his replies are redirects. This is all in fun folks!|
Dear Mr. Warner:
Thank you for you questions! We here at the Basement Arcade love hearing from collectors like yourself and are delighted to answer you line by line.
"Can I buy the gyruss game that you bought at the December of 1999 auction. I'll give you $10 less than what you paid."
"SURE! Can you say tax write-off?"
"When are the prices for the December 2001 auction going to be put up? You take too long. You should cater more to the people who read your page! Sheesh!"
"You're 100% right. We have some people who help us put this together and sometimes it is hard to read their handwriting.... Our Bad"
"Why is "Arcade" spelled with an "A" at the beginning when you can't hear it when you say "Arcade"?"
"Because if it was spelled with an "F" it would be FARCADE, and sayings like FAR OUT and Groovy went out in the 70s. Classic gaming started in the 80s - silly goose."
"How do you make T-Molding? Does it require some sort of machine?
"No, is is grown on old bread and things you forget about in the fridge. That's where the "MOLD" part comes in the name. The "T" came from the man who discovered it."
We hope this clears matters up for you. As an Added bonus, we pay homage to you at http://www.basementarcade.com/arcade/auction/a40/Data.html We suggest you read it!
