Hi, Kim here again. Hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey day and are recovering from trauma experienced during Black Friday. Hopefully, this new collector’s item will brighten your week. Everyone who collects classic, retro gaming memorabilia should check out this rare Street Fighter II item. It’s a print box set of Super Street Fighter II art.
Very Rare Street Fighter II Art – Complete Set
This listing is for a very limited edition collection. Only 100 were produced. You can find plenty of single listings. But, these complete sets are extremely difficult (and expensive) to find.
Super Street Fighter II CRMK Art Box
This Street Fighter II art, originally advertisements for Super Street Fighter II, was done by CRMK. If you’re not familiar, CRMK (aka Bengus) is a pretty big deal in the world of Capcom art, and is responsible for the iconic vision of Street Fighter we’re all so familiar with. The prints are hand numbered and the Capcom logo is embossed on each one. There are 16 prints measuring 12 by 10 inches, all contained in a collector’s box. Each box set also includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Yoshinori Ono, the executive producer of Street Fighter.
“CRMK (aka Bengus) is a pretty big deal in the world of Capcom art…”
Street Fighter was first released in 1987. It showed up in arcades before later moving on to consoles. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior showed up in February 1991. Three more SF II games followed (4 total), ending with Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers in September 1993.
In February 2013, Capcom asked players who their favorite characters/fighters were. Every character from every Street Fighter game in every country was eligible for voting. Some of the top characters were Ryu (#1), Ken (#2), and Chun-Li (#4). Chun-Li was always my favorite; she was the first girl (that I remember) that seriously kicked butt. I would always play as Chun-Li, and play way too long so I had to run home from my friend’s house so I didn’t get in trouble for being late. But, what I remember best was playing the original SF II in an arcade for the first time. It was a near-religious experience!
I’m also going to drop this video here because it’s awesome and I can. The world needs to see it before Nintendo’s lawyers’ remove it from history!
After all this Street Fighter talk, I couldn’t help but find similar merch. Here are additional Street Fighter items I tracked down on the ‘bay:
- Street Fighter 4 20th Anniversary Bandana RARE LIMITED EDITION – This is a great item for SF collectors — only $10.
- X-men Vs Street Fighter Action Figure – Gambit Vs Cammy – Rare – Unopened – 18 people are already watching this. Don’t’ miss your chance. Prices are only going up!
- STREET FIGHTER ALPHA 2 (Nintendo Power video game/trading cards) RARE – These come from a collector’s collection, so (as to be expected) they’re in wonderful condition. The cards are nearly identical to previous Nintendo Power Super Power Club cards but without the same name.
- Street Fighter II promo poster | Japanese B2 Capcom official rare – This features Chun-Li and a few other characters. Original official promo poster for Super Street Fighter II Turbo from Japan.
