Our trip ‘oop north’ to visit Zaheer & Bec

Making videos on YouTube has brought many blessings and surprises, one of which was the meeting of two like minded resellers, Nic & Zaheer, approximately three years ago. Sharing an equal passion for their businesses, and a sense of humour, the two men have become firm friends, and a regular weekly ‘Tat Chat’ was born, airing live every Tuesday evening on YouTube. Early last year Zaheer came to visit us and he & Nic enjoyed a night out in Hitchin.  Later that year we met again when we organised a reseller meet up, again in Hitchin, with more of our close knit reselling friends.  We met Bec that weekend and a lot of fun was had.

£5,100 Sale! What do we get after fees?

We recently sold the highest value item of our 15 year reselling career.  Nic had purchased a job lot of vintage consoles, games and accessories and while researching prices in which to list everything, he came across this inconspicuous looking cartridge with a hand written label.  At first he dismissed it, assuming it had no value as it had lost it’s label, and someone had replaced it with their own.  He planned to bundle it along with an Atari console and some other lower value games.  However, his curiosity was triggered, he had never seen an Atari game called ‘Hard Head’ before, perhaps even without the label it would still hold some individual value.  Having done some further research he decided that perhaps this game was actually quite rare as there were no other ‘Hard Head’ Atari Cartridges currently listed or recently completed on eBay.  He decided then that he would put the game on auction with a Buy It Now of £100!
