I remember asking what he wanted for Kung Fu Heroes, he says "$35." Ouch, I was thinking maybe $15 at the most, but damn, $35? That's not even ebay prices! (No, seriously, look it up). I recall looking through his Genesis binder of prices and it was dirt cheap. Like, dirt freaking cheap. According to the binder, at one point he had Crusader of Centy... for $25. So I guess you are able to get really good deals like you got on the Dragon Fighter.
I first went there this past summer, and man, when he showed all these boxes, and manuals, it was like collectors heaven. I asked him how he got it all, he said back in the day when mom and pop video stores were liquidating there games, he'd buy all of it up. Good way to get inventory. But hey, let's try to keep those boxes our little secret eh? Haha
I've been dealing with Jim at JR Controls for over 15 years. Yea his prices are all over the map but occasionally you'll find a diamond in the rough. I had to chuckle at your comment about keeping the boxes/manuals a secret lol. I had first crack at all of it two years ago and scored huge
