Hi all,

I came across a treasure trove last weekend!!  I ran into an ex-Woolworth's employee at an indoor flea market we have here in Nebraska who was selling a treasure trove of Stadium Events cartridges.  Apparently, his store only returned the boxes and packaging to Nintendo and not the carts which he later purchased.  So I struck a deal to purchase all the Stadium Events cartridges from him and I now present to you pictures of this treasure trove shown below!!  Feel free to PM me with any inquiries.

Hah, was expecting this last night when I went to bed...

Would be REALLY funny if it wasn't fake and just a coincidence it was posted today with that user name...

Clearly fake. You'd need a higher-resolution image to make it believable. Not only that, but you'd also need a real label scan instead of that hybridized look (title on 2 lines = PAL, white bar with copyright info on the bottom = NTSC...?). But, if you wanted to send one of those 5-screw carts to me, I'll cover one penny of the shipping costs .

It must be the extremely rare PAL/NTSC version....white bar at the bottom of the label + "Stadium Events" written on two lines. Nice!

Props to dangevin for outing me by IP . Also, props to all the observant folks who noticed the label variation. I didn't want them to be perfect since they are fakes!!. They are working eprom carts though, so I guess you could fix the label if you were so inclined. I guess you could consider these "Stadium Events April Fool's Day 2008" Edition. Hope it gave some of you a good laugh for April Fool's day. Lots of burned finger tips and donor cart sourcing went into this prank but I think it was worth it .
