Yeah was mentioned in the WTB thread, I assume the owner would make his way here. Comments said he wasn't selling prior to that.

Im always baffled that people can have this and have no idea what it is. Personally anybody with a semifunctioning brain can go "Hey this doesn't look like any of the other carts I have. I should look this up to see what it is"

The actual owner is in jail, and needs money apparently, so contacted his brother (OP on Reddit) and basically said "sell the shit in this storage unit for me". The NWC was in the storage.

Yeah agree it should have it's own thread, hopefully that person will chime in on this one.

Reddit is seriously an endless trove of misinformation. It is frustrating reading false comment after false comment. Social media is the fake news of the game collecting world.

I appreciate the guy who said to sell NWC in a NintendoAge forum auction with over 20 upvotes, lmao. I'm sure that would be smooth and drama free.

He says on a forum - an early form of social media.

Some ended up in storage units and back corners of basements where they were forgotten. If you no longer keep up with anything video games, it might slip by.

My aunt had an NES that she used to play (and let her nieces and nephews play.) I asked her about it a couple years ago and she said, "Oh, that thing, it's in the crawlspace, I think. Haven't seen it since Bush Sr was elected."

That would be a tight fit, right along with daddy's wrist watch.


Impressive though these still get found like this, but not entirely surprising either.  The only surprise is how anyone can still be clueless given typing the name on the front alone will get you blown away with enough to know to tread carefully and ask the right questions.

This will probably keep happening for many decades 1 by 1. Look at Action Comics #1, or Honus Wagner cards. They keep popping up every so often.

Very amazing nonetheless and a big congratulations to the owner.

Got any of these for sale? Sell them to me. I also buy other NES Publisher inserts, and even GB/GBC, and SNES inserts too.

I don't trust Reddit after what happened. Will use the NA link.
