2882232 No.2882232 [Reply] [Original] [archived.moe]

I have been in possession of this gold version game cartridge for about 15 years now. I traded some Pokemon cards for it. The reason why this is an interesting cart is because the sticker is upside down.
>pic related
I come to you guys at /vr/ to ask if this rare item is worth anything. Ebay sells normal gold version carts for about 20 dollars. I tried to research this to see if there was anyone else that had a similar game cartridge with an upside down label. I didn't find anything. The game has been tested and works and contains no save data. AMA
Thanks in advance

No shit, the battery ran dry about 6 years ago, man. Same as every other.

Not sure if you're serious but it is most likely somebody did that themselves. How on earth is a cartridge going to be processed upside down, then pass quality control?
At any rate, in terms of worth, probably about the same as a regular Gold cart, give or take a couple of dollars.

Here's an interesting idea. Try selling the fucking thing.

variants in any form are mostly not more worth than the normals.
maybe if it had a very special variant aspect like a gray shell.
sure there are hardcore collectors which even look for those, like on nes games there are 5 and 3 screw variants, but even those are not really more worth than the others.
well like someone mentioned you can try selling it at nintendoage, it's the likeliest place there is some hardcorecollector who is interested in it and might throw some additional $/€ on it. but don't expect too much.

also a higher res picture of the whole front would be nice since:

Stuff like this happens occasionally, bypassing QC on seemingly obvious issues.

Rule of thumb, only stamps increase in value due to fuckups.

The only exception I seen lately was with amiibos and even then it have to be something actually neat like Samus having both arms be cannon arms.

It is your own fault for obtaining the game with such a clear error so you only have yourself to blame. If anything it will decrease the value as most people will think the sticker being upside down as odd and not interesting and as stated Bookleg Pokemon games are kinda common which doesn't help. Personally if I were to buy Pokemon Gold and start a collection I wouldn't buy that one. Just use common sense.

I doubt it's a rare cart. There are a lot of databases that keep track of regional versions, ROM revisions, misprints, etc., and this type of thing would have shown up on their radar already.

My best guess is that someone printed a replacement label and put it on the cart upside-down. There are ways to create reproduction labels, and there are even eBay sellers who provide this service. So yeah, it's not an unlikely scenario that some idiot printed a replacement label and applied it the wrong way.

Sort of a logical fallacy there, innit? If it stores your saves and functions normally for gameplay that's all that matters. If you're not going to sell why should it matter? Just play the game instead of assigning value to what appears to be a poorly manufactured fake.

I can see what's present. This isn't unheard of, having an upside-down label isn't isolated to Pokemon Gold or give it any precedence of value. You may see re-sellers marking it up for being 'rare' and vapid buyers paying that price for a 'rare' cart. But personally I don't think it's got any more value than a regular cart for the only remotely unique feature being that the label was put on upside down. I still hold that the functionality of a working cart and it's ability to save should easily trump a reversed label in terms of value. But this type of thing is easy bait for collector fags who assign value to 'variants' like this one, as being special.

tl:dr

There's no reference of value outside of what you assign to it for re-sale. Sum total apprised value is nil unless you're baiting for possible value despite your insinuations of no sale forthcoming.

>> No.2884394

>>2884368
Well unless another one shows up, then as far as we can tell then your cart is one-of-a-kind, and it's simply impossible to guage the value of one-of-a-kind items. It could be worth a fortune, or it could be no more valuable than a regular copy of the game. Truly getting a bidding war of some sort going is the only way to get an idea of its worth.

Status-minded collectors probably wouldn't buy it for much money given the risk of it making them a laughing stock if they were to pay out the ass or flaunt it. Personal collectors likely wouldn't buy it due to generally uninteresting nature of the thing. Again, someone might be more interested in it because of the flaw, but honestly it looks like one of the flaws that could be easily forged (is it easy?

No I never gave it value. I simply stated that there's no benchmark for the price but that it would be marked up from what the base price of the cart for it's condition would be. This being based off the idea that if anyone like op tried to sell it, it would be inflated arbitrarily by this flaw. There's no contradiction in that, just speculation. A contradiction would be a number value assigned to a precedent such as stating

>there's no precedence of value for a reversed label, but I saw one go for x amount of dollars

>Paintings don't have any value
Your point being? This is a flawed cart in that it has a reversed label, not a completely unique work of art.

What exactly are you hoping for here?

You've established it's a production error. You've established it's fairly rare, rare enough that there's no auctions of similar carts to use as a guide for the value. We've established that no one here or on Reddit gives a shit about it, regardless of how rare it is. What more do you want?

As has already been said, the only way to find the value is to auction it, maybe no one will care and it will go for the regular price, perhaps even less, but then maybe a collector will pay a bit more than normal, maybe a couple of collectors will get into a bidding war and drive the price right up. But since you've said you don't want to sell it this is all moot.

What more do you want?

Even in those days Pokemon was *already* a multibillion dollar worldwide industry. A late 90s EGM issue reckoned the worth of the property in the single-digit.... BILLIONS of pre-9/11 $$$s. Even IF shit like that happens then the entire assembly line team personnel will simply disappear. There are reports of Pokemon cartridge/toy assembly line workers being rounded up and used as "evolutive accelerants" to some monsters that were still being tested for release.

I am the real OP, i plan on listing it at a ridiculous price on ebay sometime in the near future and see if some nintendo fagboy, like myself, thinks it's worth anything. I don't really need the money but it would be pretty exciting to see if anyone finds this as interesting as I do and willing to pay a nice chunk of change for it.

People itt don't seem to know that "misprints" do, in fact, go for something on secondary markets in a lot of collector circles. But that's no guarantee that this misprint in particular is something worthwhile.

Strange as it may seem, OP would have been luckier if this was a more common thing. You like to say something about it being "One of a Kind never seen anything like it" but nobody will have heard about it or care about it. But if there had been, say, a whole assembly line's worth of carts that did this accidentally for an amount of time before it was caught, and something like 15,000 carts hit the market upside-down, they'd probably be worth something. Enough people will have seen them, owned them, had friends that had them, that it will stick in their memory, but the vast majority of carts would still be correct, making it worth something has a "rare novelty".

Games like this are never worth holding onto for the value increase. Even Terranigma UK version with perfect condition box and map is still just 10x the price when new. You're not getting rich selling any of your old games unless it's that track and field NES cart or whatever it was.

Let me be perfectly clear when I say this:

The label doesn't affect the playability, and some people would rather a normal cart that looks normal. You're only ever going to get a bidding war on this with the most autistic of collectors, and that's it. Even then, it's not worth that much as "priceless" doesn't demand a high price, rather whatever the most a collector is willing to pay for it

Typically expensive art is expensive because of a combination of the artist, historical inportance, and aesthetic appeal of the work. This could possibly have a few bucks more value than a standard cart, but unless there is some hot collecting factor for a Gold game with an upside down label it probably isn't going to sell for hundreds of dollars.
