Oh joy, look what’s back

…he said sarcastically. You may recall that a year ago, someone acquired one of the 26 Nintendo World Championships Gold carts and then — to the great wincing pain of every collector watching — dismantled it, then had the VGA laminate it in pieces. He claimed that framing it this way would keep it preserved longer, but others argued that wasn’t true.

The dismembered cart then went up on eBay, and now it appears to be up once more — unless this is a different cart; it’s hard to tell from the description. God help us if there are two of these now, or if this becomes a trend. Pat, don’t ever even think about it.

Finally, if you have a Wii U, I’d like to remind you that today Super Metroid goes on sale for thirty cents. If you can only buy one item today, forget the watch, make it this.

  1. Dude ruined a gold cart?
    Unbelievable. I do hope someone actually gets it (for a MUCH lower price), but with the sole purpose of reassembling it and burning the VGA shell in a bonfire.
    This seller should be ashamed.

  2. Also, those are exposed UV-erasable chips, now UNCOVERED in a CLEAR shell.
    Proof that seller and VGA are just plain dumb.
