    Stopped into one of the pawn shops in town.  They have about 30 games all of which are overpriced.  They also had this sign attached to a display in the back.  I offered $20.  He countered with $25.  I said, "Yes."  He gave me the original mounting brackets with it and it also has hooks in the top of the sign if I want to hang it.  It's about 3 feet long, 6.5 inches tall and about a half inch wide... and it's double sided.  It's in near-mint condition with only a few scratches and some old scotch tape goo that will come off with minimal work.  Yay for my first real sign!!!

Oh, and that's a great sign! I never did track one of those down... kept getting outbid.

Very nice Sign! After making some substantial purchases this week, I'm actually selling my first sign to a forum member here to recoup some of the cost (its the same big globe one that Dain has in those pics). Great price and great sign!

Dain, I will be so pissed if you sell that super stars sign to anyone without giving me a shot. I've been wanting that since you posted it on the frontpage!

That's a really cool sign. I have never seen that one before. I like that it's simple, thin and not too over the top like some signage I have seen. Good stuff man!

Nice job, but for some reason the Nintendo Seal Of Quality above "World Of" really seems off.

You can't really see the sticky tape crap around the edges in the pic... but it was there. I just spent the last hour getting it off. Now the sign looks even better. It actually did make a big difference... I was surprised. I'll get it hung in my game room (or the baby's room... who knows) tomorrow. Thanks for all the kind words. I am really excited about this find.  I will need to post pics of my game room in a couple weeks.  I realized I hadn't posted any yet so I'll wait until the birthday gifts are received and properly introduced to their new home before I take any pics.

It's late, I'm tired,  and I just realized it's garbage night tonight... here's to that.
