it's funny a bop bag is worth that much. didn't 1/2 of them pop out of the box? :)

people are basically paying for a tiny sticker, as tim pointed out. beyond my sick collector wants and needs. :P

The character inside the box is denoted by a small sticker underneath the image.

I was contacted by the guy who bought the bop bags again via text asking me if I still had the items below.   They're heading his way tomorrow :).

From talking to him it seems the 3 pack high bounce balls are a bit harder to come by than the singles these days.  When I was looking for this stuff eons ago I remember the opposite being true, but then again I wasn't searching for them multiple times a day or anything like that.  They're basically dollar store/gas station spinner toys so the cards below about as mint as they come for them.   
Looking for cheap or free storage for working games that will be at future shows :D

I remember those balls, i'm sure I had some back in the day.

GPK stuff was literally everywhere for a few years.

You're saying you don't have balls now?  ;)  hehehe.  Sorry, I had to take that one.  hahahah

That's quite the GPK collection!  I definitely like seeing the pics of stuff in this thread.  Brings back memories from my youth.  Cataloging any sizable collection is a pretty hefty task.  I'm still only partially done with my console gaming collection using the Collectorz software.  It's just finding the time to do all of the leg work and make sure everything is accounted for.  And I'm not even taking actual pictures of my items yet.  I could spend probably a couple weeks or more just adding pictures to my items.

Good luck with your efforts and sales.  And please keep the pics coming.  :)

Wacky Packages were the precursor and better in my opinion but that's me.
