Surreal moment today. I went to Oaks, PA expo. I spoke with a woman selling gameboys and I connected with this one because my dad got me my first one sometime in 2000 or something. I ask to see this gameboy color AND IT HAS MY NAME ON IT. S, Murphy. This is either the most coincidental thing I’ve ever experienced or this is mine from early 2000’s.

That's some glitch in the matrix type of shit. You and your gameboy being reunited.

The thing that’s keeping me from believing it’s mine is that he is from Florida and I’m from California. You should have seen the look on my face but I reached out to my dad I haven’t spoken to in several years and he said it’s his hand writing (but he also isn’t a very credible source being an addict in the past)

Just call him S. Murpheus

Wish I had put my name on mine. I was OCD about writing on my console and games. I'll never be reunited.

Please tell me you bought it?

That’s an amazing find. How was the event by the way? It’s not too far from me but i seem to always miss the events held there.

ID: hg1d8ou

The event was fun! Met a lot of people. All my friends were away so I went alone. But it was worth it

You didn't find it. It came back to you.

Did you buy it?

ID: hg10tix

Immediately and then I walked around for a few hours looking for a sign in the form of a game and didn’t but pokemon yellow sufficed.

ID: hg126q1

Should’ve asked for a discount because someone had written all over it.

Sounds like a Toy story.

You put munitions chips in toys!?

Bro, keep it forever and pass it down. You’ve found your family heirloom and your bloodline must continue.

I am going to my moms tonight to try and find old pictures and validate. Will follow up

Wait, 50 cents or 50 dollars?

ID: hg18wsy

First one then the other.

ID: hg1f8o4

Holy smokes people have gone crazy with prices.

ID: hg1hqxt

Seriously, $50 and the seller didn’t even bother to get all the marker off lol. Good for the poster, but still

Did you meet Scitt the Wiz?

ID: hg179j2

I listened to him for a hot second but I didn’t know who he was. I continued in the other room to get my ass beat in N64 mario kart.

Tell me more. What was your thought process during that

ID: hg1a8nm

Walked up and saw a gameboy in this color, said I used to have one just like this. Looked at the top, eyes widened. Showed the lady selling it my ID, said this is mine and just stood there confused like is this actually a thing happening right now and the lady said its a higher power and I said well I have to buy it now. I FaceTimed my mom and all my friends who answered shook. Still shook.

Yo that’s wild I really hope this is true. What’s the old saying? If you truly love someone/something set it free haha

ID: hg16ues

If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.

This, clearly, was always OPs.

Brruuuuhhj... why did you gave it away in the first place?

ID: hg124sw

It’s just one of those things I think, I don’t have a lot of things from my childhood because of divorce and moving from CA to PA. I was maybe 5- 6 I wanna say when I had it. Not to mention I got the gameboy advanced at one point.

ID: hg12k4q

Dude i hade the same one as a child(bday gift from my dad when i was 5 with pkmn red), mine died when i was like 7 or 8y old I'd ever had it given away

This is amazing

It found its way back

I wonder what the S stands for?

ID: hg16ii9

With a mick last name like Murphy, I would guess Sean or Seamus

ID: hg1eph1

Has to be. Can't be Scott like his username says.

Is that only 2 digits on the NES top loader price tag?

ID: hg18bts

Let me go check.

ID: hg18lxm

Don’t waste your time enjoy your moment, unless you are going to buy it. They sell for about $125-150 mostly

Nobody commenting on your wallet with your id in the background.

Damn there was an expo!?!? I live ten mins from Oaks and would've gone! At the expo center right? By the Lowe's and the rock gym?

ID: hg1cbk3
