Any SF Bay Area collectors/enthusiasts? Looking to sell collection locally.

After long and careful consideration, I have finally decided to part with my childhood SMS collection (est. 1987). In order of importance, my priorities for this endeavor are as follows:

1. Must be an SMS enthusiast/collector who will truly appreciate the items.
2. Would prefer a local buyer as I do not want to deal with shipping.
3. Must take entire collection.
4. Just want to get this over with.
5. Price is flexible and secondary (see 1-4 above). Please make an offer!

Attached is a CSV text inventory of hardware and games. In addition I have some posters, brochures, and Helpful Hints that I didn't inventory which I will include as well. You can open the file as a CSV in Excel to get a table format, otherwise I think the CSV is readable but messy.

I've already gathered everything into 3 boxes: original Sega Base System box, QuickShot joystick box, and a standard filing box containing all the games and miscellaneous items. As you can imagine, this is somewhat of a difficult decision for me, hence the list of priorities above (especially #4). Also, a large part of my collection was child-owned so I don't even know if it's something that people would want, but at the very least I hope there's some historical value even if there isn't any monetary value.

Some photos of the collection that I've posted over the years is available on my website: http://joyojc.com/tag/master-system/. Most items shown are included, but some are not. The text file should be the definitive list. I've tried to be as descriptive as possible and would prefer not to unbox everything again to take photos (see priority #5).

If you know of any collectors in this area, I would appreciate you letting them know as well.

I think that about covers everything, thank you very much for reading and please feel free to ask any questions.

P.S. I also have some Sega Genesis and Super Ni****do stuff that I haven't had time to look at yet, please let me know if interested, same priorities as above.

Edit 6-4-17: Please note that the posters, brochures, and helpful hints sheets have now been spoken for. There will be no additional items to whatever's listed in Collection.txt.

Edit 6-8-17: Astro Warrior/Pit Pot and Hang On currently on hold for potential buyer, Collection.txt updated.

I know you're really not interested in selling individually or dealing with shipping.....but I must inquire anyways. According to your list you have a game I have been long searching for. Nothing rare or special, just an odd variant. I'm in the US so I hope you would consider selling it to me, since shipping one game seems only mildly inconvenient ; )
Please think about it, and PM me if you're interested. Thanks and good luck!

Edit: I certainly pay well for both the game as well as the shipping.

There hasn't been much interest in the lot so far, so why not? PM sent, thank you.

Just want to give you guys a quick update. Since I haven't been able to achieve my initial priorities I've finally relented and listed some items on eBay. Below is what's currently live now, and I'll probably do one or two more listings to do the rest of my games. Thanks to all those who have expressed interest in my games, and please disregard the original collection.txt going forward.

Getting close to the finish line, still some straggler games that haven't been paid for yet. Here's the actual SMS itself, the Sega Base System: http://r.ebay.com/ODnbP8

R-Type finally sold today, which means my entire collection is now gone. Thank you to all who expressed interest and special thanks to those of you who helped re-home my childhood treasures. Although I no longer have the physical hardware the SMS will forever have a place in my heart. Love live Sega! ❤️
