TSB 18 account for sale on ebay???

HoumyHoumy Registered Users, Member 3,713 Posts
I remember back when I was in the video game business with brick & mortar stores we used to sell some hard to find imported titles on ebay and most major makers (Nintendo, Sony, Sega, etc...) had restrictions of selling Japanese import titles that were not available in the U.S. market and ebay would cancel those listings on their behalf. How is it that GLU is not doing anything about these ebay listings? I do pity the fool though that would pay $1K for a Diamond team with a 123K team strength and that is the worst rip-off that I have ever seen.

Shouldn't be hard for GLU to go after them if they are in fact interested in doing something about it. Start there and maybe they'll scare at least a few loaders of offering their services on other platforms and ruin the game for the rest of us.

    @Houmy That's too funny. In the related items there was a 78k Gold team for $1,300 which is even worse. A person could probably build that team in a couple of weeks for free.

    It's kinda funny they scribble out the name of the team. Between the team's record and the players there's plenty of information there for Glu to identify the team.

    Unfortunately it is real and the poor souls buying those teams will probably end up getting their teams jailed.

    I would actually pay $300 more for the gold team as at least you would have a shot at WOH :neutral:

    @Houmy if your still in the business I have a working Intellivision system with about 40 games.  Could be yours for a couple mountains!
    I'm confused by what you mean by 5.7 and 5.8.  You mean the round and level?

    @whynot I wish buddy. Loved it but had to close our stores when gamestops and all those other chains came around and just killed our business. The only old school system I have is the VIC64 below which was my own when I was a kid (YES I am an old soul)

    @whynot had that too and vaguely remember it having a switch to select from a few different versions of pong. Upgraded to the 2600 after that, then the VIC64 followed by the Amiga 500. So wish I had kept some of the old stuff growing up. Especially my Battlestar Galactica Cylon with the rotating red eye.

    @Houmy Ever play "Hardball" as a kid?

    @LudwigMonster I am afraid not. My favorite game was Super Baseball 2020 on the NeoGeo. Kind of feel like ordering a new Raspberry Pi 3 to play it again.

    I had to buy a sound blaster pro with a cd rom drive just to play this on my 386. Cost me about $120 in 1992. Worth it.

    Ooh they’ve dropped it down to a thousand bucks! With free local pickup! Why hasn’t ANYBODY bid yet? 🤔
  • matt_sackettmatt_sackett Registered Users, Member 1,537 Posts
    I do have a drunk ebay story (from last night) I collect old beer signs and I was in a bidding war, I meant to bid $100...in my drunken state and im a fast clicker (see my 243 bonus games played yesterday) I bid $1000 on the sign and ended up winning it...for only $202 Mind you but...ugh, I did reach out to the seller and explained that vodka bid on that and it wasn't all me..

    She relisted it.

    Loved these games. Especially Triple Play. The legend team was fun/funny to play with. 

    Also funny glitch on this game was Derek Lee was somehow faster than Ricky Henderson.

    I have a 174K strength Diamond team.  If someone wants to give me $1,000 for it I am out and will see you in 2019.  :)

    No one is bidding on these accounts. They probably wouldn't even sell for $50.
