I’ll be honest and tell you that prototypes/samples are not my cup of tea in the morning. Sure it’s neat to have the earlier productions of certain games. The more popular the game is, the more desirable it is to own the prototype(if you can find it). I’d love to have proto’s of certain games, but I am not crazy for them. With that said, prototypes are sought out by a large amount of collectors, and some are willing to pay in the high thousands for them. I’m not an expert when it comes to this field, but I can spot a good auction from a mile a way.
eBay seller bidoncoolstuff has two auctions ups. One is for a 3 in 1 proto which consists of Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros., and World Class Meet. The other proto is for Super Mario Bros. 2. The seller removed the casing for the games to show the codes. He had these two auctions up before but were combined into one. I am guessing he realized that these are very rare and would be better off selling them separately which both have exceeded the $150 mark already.
Signed Video Game Accessories
Thanks to **Joseph for the submission! Here are two really neat signed auctions. One is for a Halo 3 Controller Set signed by Todd McFarlane, and the other auction is for a Guitar Hero World Tour signed by 25 artists at the 2010 Grammys. It even comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Some of the artists are:
