I may have been giving him too much credit for assuming he was the one that sent those same games into Heritage to sell.

No I'm watching his videos, I actually feel sorry for him, here's a wata unboxing he posted 

Multiple graded atari ets and assassins creed for 360 that arent even good grades, this is the last guy who should have a channel giving advice to collectors/"investors".

He's advising people to invest in the exact same games he just got back from Wata. I'm guessing that's because he's selling or already sold them.

I'm not a sealed guy at all so I don't really get the appeal of having it sealed, let alone graded. I prefer my personal evaluation of condition over some random shadowy company.

Maybe he's working for WATA? 🤔

Random hypothetical thought: You guys ever wonder if too many different sealed grading services ever cropped up during a grading craze or something the whole sealed market could possibly crash?

Hahahah his constant disappointment with the grades is funny to me.  "Another E.T. in..... 8.0" (sigh) *flips game back and forth* "guess they saw something I didn't".

 

It strikes me as a guy who really doesn't understand the grading scale or nuances with factory sealed condition.  Going by the comments, seems he is submitting some games from factory cases and just assumes "factory case = 9.6 A++"

Not sure how I missed this guy until now. This is gold. Is he active on social media? Anyone know who he is? His Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter Edition is sweet (not sure if it’s worth $30k like he says, lol).

I enjoyed that his 5 must have Atari games are 5 games he has and then says you should own them in the same grades he owns them. How convenient!

I just worked up the courage to watch the video. Gross. I hope I never reach a point in my life this low.

It’s like if I just kicked the down the doors into the rubber duck collecting community and started assuring everyone that their rubber ducks were now worth thousands and only for the elite collectors and their portfolios. While knowing jack shit about rubber ducks other than some tidbits of research I did out of a thirst for profit (rather than interest).
