Video Game Auctions New Posting Schedule and More! Video Game Auctions New Posting Schedule and More!

Good morning VGA readers. With the start of the new year, we’ve taken a step back to reflect on our work at VGA. We’ve been at it since 2010, so 4 years with the goal to do daily posts on rare and sought after collectibles. We’ve covered thousands  and thousands of auctions, and some of those consists of readers submitting in their own findings. We have a deep passion for video game collectibles, merchandise, anything related to gaming and are very fortunate to be able to have readers who can come to this site and share that passion. We’ve shared our collector hunting experiences with you and have also helped with hundreds of requests for items and tips for finding collectibles.

Video Game Auctions is coming into it’s 5th year, and looking back, making daily posts have been part of our schedule and routine. We’ve never been paid to do this, never charged for advertising on our site and have kept the site clean of Google Ads or any other format. Making daily posts have become more difficult as time passes by. It typically takes on average 2 hours a day to make posts. With our personal schedules getting more busy, and quite frankly, online-gaming taking chunks of our time, we’ve decided, instead of closing Video Game Auctions, to switch our posting schedule to a more realistic “weekly posts”. Every week, either Friday, Saturday or Sunday, we will be making a post showcasing auctions for the upcoming week to month. This will allow us to keep VGA up and running, while having a healthy post frequency to capture enough of the cool auctions showcased on eBay. Like usual, we will still be displaying submitted auctions, and we always appreciate a good comment on your thoughts and knowledge on a particular collectible.

With this in the clear, let’s enjoy some video game auctions :)

Legend of Zelda Oil Paintings, Blizzard Employee Jacket, Mega Man 20th Anniversary Copper Statue and More! Legend of Zelda Oil Paintings, Blizzard Employee Jacket, Mega Man 20th Anniversary Copper Statue and More!

Alright gang, been a nice refresh to get away from the computer. Doing posts almost every day is hard especially as you get older (more responsibilities). But the gamer in us comes out and we need to keep this party moving.

So the first post for the new year showcases some awesome eBay auctions as always and to kick start things off are two really nice Legend of Zelda oil paintings. Now they are not official, but when something with this amount of love and passion is put into a piece I won’t hesistate to showcase it. As well, you’ll be paying quite a bit to an independent artist to do a custom one for you like this so the price is pretty damn worth it. For $250 you get an oil painting of of Link in his “Link to the Past” state from the SNES (best LOZ game in my opinion). So these paintings are done by an artist by the name of J A Blackwell. What do we know about this Mr.Blackwell character? Not much except for the fact that he likes video games and LOZ Link to the Past is his favorite video game. I’ll post exactly what he wrote on his eBay page below. Nice pieces and love how the art goes into the borders too.

Description from eBay:

This is my latest painting “Open Road” From the Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past. This is still my all time favorite game. It just took you to another world. I have played this game (at least started) 50 times or more. Thats why this scene is so familiar to me. Its the opening of A Link to the Past. You wake up not knowing what journey you are about to embark on. Its dark and its raining outside. The sound of rain pounds down on the roof outside.You have no sword or shield to protect you. I could go on and on. There are uncounted scenes from this game that give me that magical feeling. I really just paint what I like and I’m a huge Nintendo fan. I still am today but nothing like it was back in the Super Nintendo days. There is paint on all sides of this 6 X 6 X 2 inch canvas. The art is all around this painting so it almost has to be held to appreciate all of the details. I kept the 8 bit sprite so you can see all the pixels. I also included a picture at the end of the slides that show other video game art works that I have done. These are ready to hang!!!! These pieces of 3D Video game art are complete original paintings. No prints of any kind. They are free hand painted by the Artist JABlackwell. These are one of a kind.NO PRINTS OF THESE WILL EVER BE MADE!!!! EACH ONE COMES WITH A FREE CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY. Please look at my other art paintings and send me an e-mail. Im always up for questions and comments. I also do Commissions so please don’t hesitate to ask..

PS: In my honest humble opinion, an item doesn’t have to be official to get love, as long as there’s gamer heart put into the piece :).
Other Video Game Auctions we found:
Blizzard Employee “10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY” jacket coat Warcraft – size Large - Pretty cool Blizzard jacket. The company has come a long way in the video game industry. I remember it’s early bird games on the different gaming consoles, especially the PC with the original Warcraft which was such an awesome game at the time. There were similar games to it like Dune but ultimately Blizzard saw the potential im strategy games and took off with starcraft and others.
Nintendo stickers album complete 1990’s - Not a bad price for some retro Nintendo stickers that are complete. Only downfall is that the album is in dutch. So you’re pretty much buying it for the art unless of course you speak dutch :). Seller says there are 150 stickers included.
Nintendo Super Famicom Official Super Donkey Kong Storage Case Only RARE JAPAN – Pretty neat DKC case with the DK colors. Could put your SNES games in there if you want.
1995 SUPER NINTENDO SEGA GENESIS HOT GAMES ADVERTISING MARKETING POSTER – I’ve seen pretty much every SNES/SEGA poster. Never seen this one before which is always interesting to see how Nintendo/SEGA marketed their games on promotional materials through 3rd party companies.
FINAL FANTASY MOG MOOGLE CAP HAT COSPLAY NEW KAWAII – I would have liked the hat without the “ears” on it because then I can secretly wear it in public and I’d be the only one who knows that this touque is from FF :).
The Kids’ Video Scorebook and Diary Weekly Reader Books 1982 – Damn that’s so 80’s….
Club Nintendo Japan Mario Cushion – I always wanted one of these cushions ever since I saw them a few years ago. They were part of a club nintendo jp award. Too bad they never had something this cool for Club Nintendo US.
Dead Rising 2 High Stakes mini Zombie – Zombies + Video games = a killer combo!
Gears of War 3 Curb Stomp First Aid Kit X 10 (Limited Rare Bandaids, Xbox) NEW – Never had one of these GoW bandaids but would be pretty cool to pop one of these open when you get a cut.
Ratchet And Clank standee Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned – Haven’t kept up-to-date with the Ratchet and Clank games, but I absolutely love this display. So elegant, yet, intriguing…
Mega Man / Rockman 25th Anniversary Mug Set of 2 – x1 Blue & x1 Red – These mugs look ghetto, but in that good Japanese creepy way if you know what I mean. You sort of accept the fact that when something looks sort of off, yet it’s still official and from Japan, you kind of accept it and still make the purchase. Hell I might eventually buy these mugs and actually start using them lol.
Lot Of Three Video Game Posters: Fallout New Vegas, Brink – Crazy how just one of these posters years ago would have sold for a lot. Now dude’s selling 3 of them and can’t even get $10.
Five Nights at Freddy’s FOXY plush fox 5 FREE SHIPPING – If you don’t know what Five Nights at Freddy’s is… I HIGHLY recommend you download the game on your tablet (not phone, too small). Game’s freaky and if you like horror games then you’ll love this one. The games simplicity is what got it well known as well.
Five Nights at Freddy’s BONNIE plush bunny 5 FREE SHIPPING – same as above
Nintendo 3ds display stand – I’m pretty sure if the seller mentioned “Legend of Zelda” in his/her’s auction title they would get more bids. Right now the bid is only at $15!
Mega Man 20th Anniversary Metal Statuette – Copper – I’ve seen this statue before, actually there’s two versions of them. Seller lists exactly what the statues about in the description which I’ll paste here. There’s also a silver metal statue of Mega Man in the same form with the box. I saw these on Jauce many years ago, haven’t seen them since but again I haven’t been doing my Rockman searches in a long time. They were available for around $200 US at the time. Definitely not worth $2000 in the buyers eyes, but the statue(s) are pretty rare and well worth over the $500+ mark. Seller says: “Officially licensed by Capcom, the statuette is made from real metal and was available in an extremely limited quantity, for a very brief time, back during Mega Man’s / Rockman’s 20th Anniversary. Tracking down either version of this item (the other being silver, of which more were actually produced) nowadays is considered next to impossible, making it one of the most sought after gaming collectibles out there. So, what are you waiting for… jump at this likely once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of “Blue Bomber” history!!!”
Vintage 1980 Pac-Man Advertisement Watch – I’m going for this one. But to show my unselfish side I posted this here (like I always do) in case someone else wants it and was looking for this watch for a long time. May the highest bidder win!
Original Xbox Carrying Case, Fits Xbox 360, Xbox 0ne, PS4 – Classy bag that you can carry to work ;).
Vintage 1982 Coleco Vision Puffy Stickers Mr Turtle Football Mouse Trap Rip Cord – Even more rare than the Nintendo sticker album listed above, these are the classic “puffy” stickers that you saw so often in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. You don’t see that anymore. I guess companies stopped caring about being “cute” with their stickers lol.
Gears of War 3 Promo Going Commando T-Shirt XL – Yup, definitely a shirt you can wear in public. No overly awkward and still cool to wear. You got

Good luck!

Counter Strike Global Offensive Real knife, Hotline Miami vinyl record clock, Five Nights at Freddy’s Foxy Plush Counter Strike Global Offensive Real knife, Hotline Miami vinyl record clock, Five Nights at Freddy’s Foxy Plush

Do any of you remember that screwed up indie game that came out a while ago called Hotline Miami? You’re basically a serial killer going around entering into peoples houses and killing them with t a bat. It’s a pretty screwed up game and if you’ve never seen the game trailer then check it out. Dunno how it was able to be released but I guess since it was an indie game anything was possible. Pretty graphic stuff and the game takes on that traditional NES graphic eagle-eye view from the top looking down. I guess when I am bored I will download it to see what it’s all about, but there’s actually a item related to the game on eBay. It’s actually a nice piece despite how rough the game is. It’s a vinyl record clock. Check out the auction below:

I know many of you are reading this now and wondering who on earth would have money left over to purchase video game auctions on Christmas Eve (or even Christmas day tomorrow). Well, I’m sure most of you gamers at heart still have some money left order to sneak in a few last bids before the year is over. The best time to actually buy anything is during the Christmas season because it’s highly unlikely that there will be a lot of competition for particular auctions. Everyone’s either dead broke or not focusing on their saved searches during this time. So if you’re one of the few with some money to spend then check out these awesome auctions below!
