Do you have any regrets from selling a cabinet?

Postby Q B » Thu Jul 22, 2021 2:34 am

I saw one of my cabs I sold years ago on Facebook recently the Midway cab, all black. They are asking $1200 now down from $1500 with 500 in 1 or something. Just crazy to see it, so many years later.

My Regret tho is the SEGA NAC I sold for like $650 that one really stings. The Buyer was great person don't get me wrong, But yeah one of my biggest regret in life. I was just wondering if anyone had any regrets on here from selling

I think I bought your NAC from the person you sold it to in 2016. Your biggest mistake is my biggest reward. Just know I baby this NAC and play it often. Still have not cleaned off all the tape or drilled the coinbox though ;-)

My biggest cabinet regret is selling my childhood TurboGrafx-16 kiosk cabinet.

oh man, that actually reminds me of 2 more regrets, This place by me called A&C games. had the sega dreamcast kiosk 10 years ago and was going to sell it to me for $500 i took to long, I think I see the person trying to unload it for 2k these days

also about 4 -5 years ago I had a buddy who was going to sell me his Blast City and made him hold on for a while but became busy in life and said ok i don't want to keep you waiting if you are going to sell it and told him go sell it, i think it was on here. That ish sold the next day. :cry:

Here are some photos of my NAC, I am not sure if you bought my old one because I never had tape etc unless you have liquid paper on the left side trying to cover the scuffs? or the person who bought it from me did some things to it that changed the condition I had it in...
