There's an error on the tracker spreadsheet: you have a DFK BL kit listed as sold by porcupine140 on YAJ for 500,000 yen, but that auction did not sell.

Whoops, I'll have to figure that out at my next update (likely during my winter break coming up next week).

Ibara Kuro in "mint used condition" sold for 443,300 yen at Tops:

https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=5769

A few days later, the other one they had for sale is now marked as "sold" for 434,500 yen:

https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=5545

However! I am getting a bit suspicious of Tops. The same exact pattern happened with their two DFK BL PCBs (the "mint" one sold first, the other sold two days later). All of these games were listed for prices far above any other known sold-for price for a bare PCB. Similar story with their AK PCB (it was "sold", then the next week they had another in stock for the same price). They also listed their SDOJ PCB at least twice (same serial number), claiming it was "sold" each time. What is going on here? Well, all of these PCBs were in stock for a LONG time (close to a year). By saying they are "sold", they give the impression the game sells for that price. They then relist it a bit later, hoping someone will think it is the new going rate (they only need one person to come along every once in awhile to hit a big profit). Just a theory, I could be wrong, but from now on every time I list something as "sold" by Tops, it should be viewed with suspicion (unless someone can verify it has actually been sold). If this is actually what they are doing, it is extremely troubling.

Futari 1.5 PCB sold for 87,000 yen, at auction. Doesn't look like a proxy bidder.

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/439815525

Another one sold for 85,000 yen, at auction. Looks like the same buyer as the above. Maybe it is a proxy?

The spreadsheet at the root of this thread doesn't show any data. Is that an error or is the spreadsheet effort stalled?

I just noticed this progear boxed kit from early December that sold for 120,000 yen at auction (doesn't look like a proxy bidder):

Folded poster included. Box serial doesn't look like it matches with the PCB serial, though.

Phew, updated. Starting including PDFs of full webpages for the YAJ stuff. Easy enough to do.

Let me know if you see anything glaring! There are a lot of threads of sales on various forums this time but no indication of whether they sold...

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/auction/q352913462

I'm scratching my head as to why this sold for so much. Seller said it hasn't been used in 10 years and worked the last time he used it but can't test it now.

Ibara PCB ended at 74,250 yen, at auction, to a proxy bidder.

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/s706705923

So, I won this one, and your spreadsheet has the price at the sale price without tax, but the above price, 74,250, is correct with the tax. Also the notes can read that it's from BEEP (they sell on YAJ) and they completely re-capped the PCB with SM Caps.

I THOUGHT it was a great deal until I saw the Ibara that sold today! One sold for 100000 yen but the better deal was one for 70,345! I think because it wasn't titled correctly. I submitted both via your submit link.
