Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Scroll – Rarest Zelda Collectible?

The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Scroll is an official promotional item made by Nintendo. I’ve seen this only twice on eBay, and this comes after finding out about the existence of the scroll so I am not sure how many times it appeared on auction in the past, but I heard a few have passed.

I never knew about this item until I became a regular member over at Video Game Memorabilia Museum where one of the moderators actually own a scroll. You can see his Wind Waker Scroll here. However, his is mint and signed by Shigeru Miyamoto & Eiji Aonuma which makes it ridiculously rare. It’s really one of the nicest Zelda Collectibles out there, and although I might have seen most of the rare ones, this one is definitely at the top. But is it “the” rarest? I’ve seen the official Ocarina flute on eBay before, I’ve also seen an Ocarina watch limited to 150 in Japan, and recently someone has shown a couple of rare gems that I don’t believe anyone has ever seen before over at vgmm, but my lips are sealed :).

Anyhow, there’s not too much information about the Wind Waker Scroll except for the fact that it was definitely a promotional item. Where was it given out & how many exist? No one knows. The seller of the current scroll  says that it was given out only to the press which would make a little more sense in terms of it’s scarcity.

The one on auction has a buy-it-now price of $1,600 US with no best-offer. Some people might argue that it’s quite expensive. Is spending that much for one of the rarest Zelda Collectibles justifiable? I guess only the person who buys it can say. The only flaw with the scroll is it has a crease near the middle of the scroll which might throw some collectors off, however, the same scroll that appeared on auction last year had a 3-4 inch tear on the side and someone till bought it. I don’t remember the price, but it was somewhere around $800-$1000.

The Wind Waker Scroll is really a beautiful item, and you can appreciate the art behind it.

Good luck!

    Man, I had a chance to get one of these for $500 last year. But even that was so much money, I should have looked at it like an investment. But because it was so rare (And awesome!) I would have wanted to keep it 🙂

    Wind waker was such a beautiful game… *sigh*. When you saw the style of art in the intro of the game (as seen on the scroll) and then began playing in the cel animated world the transition was both flawless AND completely original. It was interesting to see many of my friends slam this game from the very beginning but I knew when I saw the art-style that it would be my favorite Zelda.

    I’m don’t know how many people put this game above OOT but I’m certainly one of them! Would love to have this scroll but $1,600!? I could buy a used car and paint the intro screen pictures on there for that price ^^!

    Joseph – You should have bought it!! But again it’s still a lot of money and not everyone has $500 to spend like that. This a beautiful collectors item to have. Just imagine all the standees you can get with that much money!

    Samba – I really enjoyed this game and I think too many people judged this game fast. I believe it has to do with the “look” of Link in the game. Even all the way to Spirit Tracks some Zelda fans were catching onto Links “cartoonish” look. So while everyone was criticizing the appearance of the characters they did not appreciate the games style. Btw, nothing’s stopping you from painting the intro screen pictures on your current car 😉

    Yeah this scroll would be worth the $1600 if it was signed but it’s not. Still a decent market price considering they don’t pop up.
