Here’s a unique auction. It seems like it’s been a life time since the 1990 Nintendo World Championships. Those of us who were lucky to have lived through that special time will always remember one name that pops up over and over again; Thor Aakerlund. Now I’m not here to give a history lesson as there’s plenty of articles on the dude. Basically he’s the guy that won the competition with the score of 2,800,000 points. He’s also very popular because he was competing in the age group of 12-17, and during the NES days(or NWC) this was the age group which represented a big portion of Nintendo players. I mean even watching the movie the “Wizard (1989)” you’ll see the characters ranged from 12-17. So it was a special time for that generation.
Well, to get to the point, seller gamenerd64 has up some Camerica Nes games that are signed by Thor Aackerlund. Now if you compare his autograph to other autographs he’s done they are quite similar although in the auction he also added his last name. So with that said if you plan on bidding you’ll need to do some more research and make sure it’s the real thing since we can’t authenticate this type of auction. Seller does have 100% feedback which does give him a lot of credibility, and he is right that Thor was a spokes person for Camerica Games, juct click here to see the commercials.
“After winning the 1990 NWC Thor Aakerlund became the spokesmen for Camerica Video games. Now you can get your hands on a couple pieces of video game history. Up for auction is a set of 3 Camerica video games autographed by Thor him self. To make these authentic I had Thor draw his signature lighting bolt on each game on the right corner. The games being sold are The ultimate stunt man, Big nose the cave man, and MIG 29. Bid now or buy now ,but what ever you do don’t let these pass you by perfect for any NES fan.”
