Watch Ganbare Goemon albums on Yahoo Auctions, with start price not too high. In very short time it will sky rocket in price. Because demand is coupled with low availability.
to give an example about why 300$ is, in my eyes, not too probable, here: http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/161661672
sealed cd with the artbook it came with. all for 3800yen. bids: one.
Well other times that I have found it (CD alone) they have usually gone around the 100-200 dollar mark, but yes you're right otherwise. I initially intended for my "300 dollars" to be taken as a joke of sorts but clearly I didn't make my intentions of that clear. So I apologize for any misconstrued and incorrect information given.
