After doing a quick search for Final Fantasy auctions, I stumbled upon a couple of rare items that weren’t mentioned yesterday which I want to shed light on.
The item that caught my attention is a rare Final Fantasy VIII JVC Mini Disc player Prize item which could only be obtained through the Coca Cola sweepstakes back in 1999. This contest was only running in Japan which makes the item very hard to find. Whats cool about this auction is that the seller authenticates the prize with a promo flyer for the sweepstakes.
“The unit is manufactured by Victor Japan/JVC. The original retail price on one of this players was around $250 US, and of course, the Final Fantasy edition was never available in stores. This unit has Squall Leonhart’s Griever symbol embossed on the metallic plate on the front of the player, with the Final Fantasy logo in the corner, and the Coca-Cola logo on the back. The earphones also have the Griever symbol on the outside. See actual pics below! This listing includes the main player unit, the set of Griever earphones, the LCD remote, a brand new “gumstick” type rechargable battery, and 2 sets of new foam earphone covers. See actual photos below! This title is already extremely scarce, so Buy It Now before it gets snapped up!“
I wonder if the seller happens to have the original promo flyer for the contest. That would be a neat addition to the auction. If you’re interested in checking this item out, click below:
