PS. what comes to almost all of my sales nowadays: I'm losing money. For example: buying a slightly better version of game (than I already had) for 4000 yen from YAJ (~32 Euro), add up service fees, shipping inside Japan, repacking, shipping to EU, VAT -> end price about 55-57 Euro. Selling the slightly less good version for 30-40 Euro... So, only profit for me will be a little better game in the collection, rest goes for expenses of the hobby.

I almost always lose money, as I always run standard auctions (as opposed to BIN), and I'm in the USA, so people from Europe only bid on my stuff if it's below a certain amount (due to import fees), and the overwhelming majority of Americans have no interest in MSX games, unless they're dirt-cheap. After eBay and PayPal get their cut, I'm left with a pittance.

There is a youtube channel called Tehkan Channel that frequently uploads the average Yahoo Auction MSX software prices based on the samples taken from the past 10 years database. All videos show the packages so you can know the names without reading Japanese. Though it looks to me the prices are too low considering the MSX price inflation of the past decade, they can be a good indication to tell whether a Buy It Now price is reasonable or scalping.

I love stuff like this. My personal favorite is seeing 20-30 mediocre MSX carts (Candoo Ninja-type stuff, no boxes) going for $1000 or more.
