Star Wars Stuff

I guess it's time for the first item to be officially sold by me on Racketboy

Complete, Mint, Sealed, Star Wars 2005 Pin Set
As the title suggests, I am selling a complete, mint, never opened Star Wars Pin Set collection from 2005. I had a very hard time finding any actual information online about it to use as a reference when trying to explain it to people, so I will do my best to give a brief description and the background on the item.

I live in Canada and the pin set was on sale only through a promotion in the news paper here. Every day in the Free Press there would be a coupon for a specific pin, and you had to cut it out and either take it to the Free Press Building or mail it in (if I remember correctly) and there was a new pin every day for 20 days.

I had a connection with someone in the advertising department at the time so they got a chance to buy the entire pin collection all at the same time, before it went on sale to to public. It was awesome because I got all the pins upfront and I didn't have to worry about collecting each individual pin over the course of 20 days.

It came with a promotional poster showing off all the pins that were available and a booklet you are supposed to keep the pins in with a brief description of the associated characters. The poster is still flat and only has one tiny wrinkle in it (its even hard to notice and I am sure it could be flattened out easily), the booklet is completely untouched and the pins are all individually sealed, inside another bag that is also sealed.

Normally I am not the type to buy something and keep it completely mint and unused, but I really had no idea how to properly display and take care of the entire collection so I just left it the way I got it for six years. I completely forgot I even owned it until I was going through my storage case and I came across it again.

I am also not trying to be like every other idiot on eBay and adding taglines like "RARE COMPLETE MINT" etc to my item just to make it seem more valuable, I am the original owner and I had it stored in a cabinet since the day I bought it. There is no damage, sun fading or even a fingerprint on the pins themselves.

I was a huge Star Wars fan growing up and I still like it, but I am no where near as into it as I used to be. Also Episodes 1-3 really didn't help my relationship with Star Wars but I am sure that I am not the only person who feels that way, and that is another issue altogether.

I don't have a set price in mind so feel free to offer. I am only really selling it because I am currently laid off (starting a new job this month though, thankfully) and I need some more expendable cash to throw around. I am very open to the idea of a trade because I would probably just spend most of the money from this on games anyways. Refer to my WTB list below for ideas of what I am interested in.

I live in Canada and I have +3 positive ratings for transactions. I have only bought two different times so far on here but it was a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff both times.

Let me end this thread with a picture of my cat Goldie next to my poor old discoloured Super Nintendo. For some reason she likes hanging out next to it, smart cat I guess.

I have a pink translucent GBA if you are interested. I also have a soft carrying case, a purple worm light, and I think that I have a link cable or two. Just have to make sure of that. Let me know if you are interested in any of it.

Thanks, she is pretty awesome. 8) She used to live in a barn with a few horses but we rescued her a few years ago because it goes to -40c in winter here and most cats won't survive that outside.

Updated the OP slightly.
I changed the "wanted: Gameboy Advances" to SPs since they have backlit screens. I was told that even though it is still inside, regular GBA screens are hard to see at night/in darkness. Not sure if that is true or not but it makes sense to me.

Bumped. Updated a lot from the original post.

Made a sweet banner.
I need some GBAs since I have four GBA connector cords and no system to use them with. :(

I also figured out that my cat likes to hang out next to my SNES because there is a heat register near there and she likes the warm air flow. :)

Anyways sell me some stuff.

Bought some things so I updated the list to reflect that, and then some.

I think I will be getting around to selling my duplicate games and whatnot soon. Most of the things I would sell aren't exactly super rare or cool (otherwise I wouldn't sell them) so I am not in the biggest hurry to start selling on here just yet.
