Hit some garage sales on Saturday with my wife and a friend, and
actually found some classic stuff for a change. A pretty cool haul, with
the most rare items I've ever found in one place. This is all from one
garage sale:

Atari 5200 2-port console boxed w/pack-in Pac-Man also boxed
2 non-working stock controllers
2 Wico Joysticks (1 with Y-cable) (one has been "modded" with an extra fire
button wired in and electrial taped to the top of the joystick. The woman
who sold me this stuff was disabled, and this made it easier for her to
play.)
1 Wico Keypad

the following games:

Q-Bert
Popeye
Gyruss
Pengo
Galaxian
Frogger II
Montezuma's Revenge
Mr. Do's Castle
Mountain King
Space Invaders
Joust
Mario Bros
Miner 2049er
Super Breakout
River Raid
Ms. Pac-Man
Qix
Centipede

Colecovision system with 2 contollers, and the following games:

Lady Bug
Up N Down
Subroc
Mr. Do
Zaxxon
Choplifter
Donkey Kong Jr.
Bump n Jump
Beamrider
Carnival
Spy Hunter
Q-Bert's Qubes
Donkey Kong
Junman Jr.
Frogger
Pepper II

She said she also had "another game with 4 games" she already sold, but
I was afraid to ask what it was. :)  I also don't like to look too informed
when haggling a price. So sumguy was there, but left a lot behind. I
haven't found any classic items in my area for at least a year and a half,
and no telling how long before that. This just goes to show that this stuff
is still out there waiting to be found.

I'd be interested in entertaining trade offers for anything listed. I'm
mainly interested in items from the NES and systems afterwards.

Well, the Adventure Vision only has 4 carts, so I left the other bits
for someone else.

I doubt it was SumGuy, because otherwise he would have cleaned house on
you, and then tried to sell it to you on ePay.

As to the find, SWEEEEET!

Heh.... :p  That's exactly why I don't ask. I've been disapointed
before, but nothing quite that bad.
