    I must have picked it up for some reason, why I don't know. But it was just at the top of this box when I opened so it was the first thing I checked on ebay. Other things I would have expected to have a higher price (like Torneko) weren't that close to it.

    That's the Chinese Communist Party supporting Jackie to thank him for all he's done.

    He's from Hong Kong, grew up in Australia, and it's alleged that Beijing took at least one of his houses for "tax evasion".

    Dude, you're telling me. I got Kuon, Rule of Rose, and Haunting Ground from an ebay lot for $600 or $650 some 3 years ago. That same lot is selling for $2,200 now. Its absolutely insane.

    I sold my Earthbound box and guide, no game in rough shape in 2015 I think for $300, today its closer to $800+.

    My all time favorite, Valkyrie Profile, was hovering around $100 for like 15+ years, now its $250-$300. Worth every damn penny, but still.
