Â This was brought to my attention by MasonSushi on NintendoAge and I thought it was well worth sharing.Â It is an auction for a Wayne Gretzky Hockey cart that has been modified to gain easy access to the inside in order to use as a storage container.Â Here’s what the seller has to say:
Â When closed the item appears to be an ordinary 1988 Wayne Gretzky Hockey game cartridge for NES.Â Â A slight tug pops apart the two pieces to reveal a hidden storage space that no one will ever suspect.Â The game is in great condition except for some minor barely noticeable blemishes. It’s a great hiding place for money jewelry medications or anything else you can think of that you don’t want anyone else to find. Once apart, you simply close it up you simply press the two pieces lightly together and a lego piece inside holds the halves securely together.Â And best of all it still works.Â So not only are you getting a great working classic NES game but you’re getting an extremely secret storage container that looks awesome and will impress anyone you show it to.Â The circuit board is left in tact and makes it look even cooler you open it up, green velvet is inlaid to protect anything inside and stop jingling noise.Â The screws in the back of the game are also in tact so that to the naked eye when closed it appears like a perfectly normal NES game.Â
While I’m sure the seller isn’t the first person to have thought this idea up, the execution looks quite good and he put quite a bit of thought into the design.Â It seems a pretty fun concept…reminds me of all the spy or detective movies where they pull a book from the shelf and open it to reveal a hidden key or a wad of cash.
