Congrats on finding a basically NOS one! They seem to either be extremely over priced or rebagged and claimed as new. It's always tough trying to judge condition based on pics. Hope you can snag your beat em ups soon and put it to some good use :D
NGF at it's finest. Apparently Dion ran out of vintage Oakleys to sell. I'm sure the water damaged box with Chris written in marker on it is worth at least 2k on it's own. Historic Neo Geo relics like this are priceless.
Recent scoops. Found what seems to be a NOS Martial Masters set up. The motherboard came on the thin little styrofoam-like sheet and in the original bag (left it in the box). Also, finally found a US copy of Sonic The Hedgehog on Master System. At about 80% complete with my US Master System...
