      This thing looks even worse then the last One that came up..
      No let me guess this thing also doesn't have a COA or some other guarantee of its originality either.
      Hell if I had the means to print the Circuit Board, and get either get hold of some ROM Chips, or perhaps indeed better still some junky old NES Carts that could be re-purposed into something like the above, and sold for M4DM0N3YZ....
      Yeah I'd probably do it too!

      The only difference between this, and the last One is someone went though the trouble to spray it Bronze-ie-Gold.

      EDIT: Ok strike that. Having seen the Fleabay Ad the Cart doesn't seem nearly as cheap as I had first thought. But, we still only have the Sellers word for it, and that to me for the kind Money we're talking about just isn't good enough for me.

      Maybe it is time to unlock my own personal vault and sell off some really truely rare stuff, some items I have NEVER got produced, they are prototypes, and others only a few ever made.

      But the big question is when is these unearthed ET Atari carts going to appear on eBay?

      Duplicate? Who would really go and buy some an old gold LOZ cart for $30, remove the label and spend another $25-30 bucks to get a circuit board made with the dumped rom when all they are going to make is $100,000. That's just crazy talk!

      Which reminds me...I've gotta find my gold LOZ cart. Anyone know how to safely remove a label?

      Better buy a couple of the carts, one in bad shape to practice getting the label off of first.... lol

      I am thinking a hair dryer and toilet paper would probably be the least traumatic and leave the least evidence.

      But what I would like to know is.... do you need a business partner and can we make like 500 of these things and just sell them for like 20K each one at a time to unsuspecting rubes? lol

      Preferably with fake names and dark sunglasses out of the back of a van... lol

      On this note how much would it cost to get such a Cart. verified though something like VGA (i.e. The Video Game Authority)? I'd imagine any cost would be instantly offset by the confidence with those who can buy it at the going rate, have at least some assurance that its got some creditability going for it.

      But, then if you have Nutty 'dolts prepared to part with a huge wad of cash on something that could just a easily come off a container from China. Then I lost a huge chunk of my faith in this concept of "Humanity". I'm not calling the Seller an outright fraud. I'm just saying that there's a huge potential for fraud here, as others have jokingly intimated. And I for One can see this as a very potential ~Get Rich Scheme~.

      Well there been various 'schemes' to cash in, some go as far as designing a whole new game:

      http://www.denofgeek.com/games/dodg...-internets-dodgiest-fake-videogame-cartridges

      So that above link, I would not label as fake, just clever ports, some like angry birds sell very well in fact.

      But for rare carts, yeah here is one attempt:

      http://www.nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=5&threadid=95084

      And this one was successful for a bit, $30,000 a pop until it was exposed as fraud:

      http://www.retrocollect.com/News/30000-neo-geo-aes-aero-fighters-3-potentially-fake.html

      Sadly for the previous one we posted here last week (the Grey one that winning bid was over $99,000), the seller has not been able to find actual bidder they been 'claiming' no (it was a mistake) when asked for the payment:

      http://o.canada.com/technology/gaming/nes-game-listed-for-7000-sells-for-almost-100000-on-ebay/

      Most likely he will end up with like $10,000 or so which is what the GREY one should had sold for market-wise.

      I'm calling BS on the bids.

      PEOPLE ARE OUT BIDDING THEMSELVES!

      and not by small amounts. by THOUSANDS of dollars.... why out bid yourself 5+ times at $5000-10000 a pop?

      That is normal, it is due to 'automatic bids', if you click on 'show' automatic history you will see what happen.

      For Example, currently the bid for the item is $100,088 so instead of just raising it by $100 bucks, I enter in some huge figure like $300,000 eBay will only show it being now $100,188 but really infact I told it I want to spend $300,000 so the next person comes along and thinks the same thing, fuck it and puts in a bid of $250,000 and it goes up to $100,288 but then my 'automatic' kicks in and it does to $100,388 but then your automatic kicks in and it goes to $100,488 and on and on, until finally it reaches the highest value.

      eBay system sucks, plus it so called random hiding of userid 5***o does not work, I can figure whom it is by looking at all stats if I been following similar items and I know I up against a known collector of these items, so I going to be in for a fight.

      And this 'automatic' system sucks also, wastes too much time, normally if I want to win something on eBay I don't even bid or do nothing until the last 5 seconds, by then everyone has burned out their automatics and bid, and I go in at last second and register a super-high bid, before they have chance to do the same if they happen to be online also watching it close.

      But then I also am a more careful shopper, I gotten deals by grabbing lots, etc. with a ton of stuff, only to be after that one RARE unknown to seller, buried in the pile of junk, which sucks as shipping of all the extra junk I didn't want sucks, plus UPS is ebay shipper of choice and they double charge you what ever you pay as if it is new, I hate to see the charge for an $100,000 cartridge!!! :)

      It not crazy... If what your bidding on is real... As has been reported time,in tide again. Is the fact that these Carts. ARE EXTREMELY RARE! Plus being HIGHLY DESIRABLE! Some People are prepaird to pour a huge chunk of Change into something like this, as their Nestegg. But, that's kinda the issue here though. With no Label, or any other form of assurance that the Object in question IS what it purports to be, and not something that just got off the proverbial Slow Boat from China. Is whats at issue though.

      And in this poor economic environment. Where almost anyone can obtain the materials to either build your Own or purposes bits of Old Nintendo Carts, and make them up to look like very rare Carts. Well it seems almost like a no brainer for someone of lesser morals then someone how just uses cheats in some On-Line Shooter Game.

      Its a bit of a shame that Nintendo didn't bother to think about numbering all those Carts at the time.

      the pcb on the nwc is real, but the gold cart is almost certainly from a zelda gold cart.
