About

It all began at Goodwill.

Sometime in the summer of 1997 I was at Goodwill just browsing. You know, just looking to see if they had anything I couldn't live without. In the locked up case I noticed some video games. They caught my interest because I had never seen them before. I asked to look at them and all three were complete and in near mint condition. I had never heard of Sega Master System before but at 2 bucks each in that condition I couldn't live without them. So it began...

Once I got the games home I started doing the research and it turned out they were not only in great condition but they were desirable games as well. I put them up on eBay which I had just start using to buy and sell Pokemon Cards. To my surprise I turned my 6 dollar investment into 65 dollars. I was hooked.

I continued searching thrift stores and garage sales and buying and selling games on eBay. By 2002 the seller fees on eBay were eating too much of the profits so bluerosevideogames.com was born. Everything was going great for this part time business until the recession hit in 2008. Sales dropped dramatically. In 2012, in an effort to get things going again I re branded the shop savepointgames.com. Unfortunately, life events and available time made it impossible to fully implement the change. When my annual hosting fees came due for 2019 I made the decision to shut down the website and give Etsy a try. Time will tell if this will work out.

That 65 dollars has been turned into 1000's of items for over a dozen game systems. I will never get everything listed on Etsy but as long as sales support the selling costs I will keep it going by adding listings as much as possible.

Frequently asked questions
How are Instruction Manuals Shipped?

All instruction manuals and booklets are shipped in a zip lock bag with cardboard on both sides for protection. A small number of manuals may be shipped in a bubble or heavy envelope. A larger number of manuals will be shipped in a box.

What do your manual descriptions mean?

There is no universal standard for the condition of these items. As such it is very subjective. We try very hard to describe our items as completely and honestly as possible.

Near Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good and Acceptable are used to represent our opinion of the manual's condition.

Near mint to us means there are no defects plainly visible at arms length. It might not be perfect but it is close.

Excellent means there are limited defects. There will be no tears, stains, or writing. It may have creases. It will not be wadded up, folded in half or badly worn.

Very Good will have multiple defects or one serious one but still in good shape otherwise.

Good = 100% readable.

Acceptable = not dog chewed.

What is the difference between a hard and soft crease?

Take 10 sheets of paper together and fold them in half. Press down along the fold. The center sheet has a hard crease where the paper fibers have broken. The outside sheet has a soft crease which is really more of a bend than a crease.
