I’ve never really understood why phone cards are such a popular form of collectible in Japan. The demand for these items in North America is still significant, but it’s not even close to the attention they get on the other side of the Pacific. Some of them can be very rare and I’m sure those limited releases do get the game they are promoting some hype. Below you will find six phone cards with art from the Metal Gear Solid series…
Here are some more interesting auctions for today:
Super Mario Bros 2 Mugs (2) – This auction closes today… and soon. The mugs are in great shape and the bids are coming in.
Donkey Kong Arcade Token – The token is quite worn, but still very cool. It’s from the 1982 World’s Fair Video Expo in Knoxville.
Pac-Man & Ms. Pac-Man Arcade Token – Two more tokens from the same expo mentioned above. This is a nice pair for Pac-Man fans and the first bid has already been made.
Resident Evil 15th Anniversary S.T.A.R.S Gloves – Out of all of the Resident Evil replica gear out there, for some reason, these gloves catch my eye the most. Maybe because while playing the original games, you’re looking at your character’s hands so much when trying to aim… Not sure.
Legend of Zelda Four Swords Adventures T-shirt – Very cool t-shirt here. It has some pictures with the formations used in the game which you don’t see often on a gaming shirt.
