Good morning VGA readers I’ve got some cool promotional items and employee items for viewing as well as submitted auctions from our readers. Take advantage as some of these auctions are starting at a very low price so it’s your chance to snag them at a good price. Let’s Go!
Video Game Auctions:
– Nintendo DS FAT GOLD Japanese limited Toy’s R Us – This is a limited gold edition DS available only in Toy’s R Us stores in Japan. The three DS auctions were submitted by Pokemaniak(Thanks!).
– Nintendo DS 50’s cent LIMITED EDITION only 3 made in the world – “On April 25, 2005 rapper 50 Cent teamed up with Nintendo to create the rarest Nintendo DS game system on the planet, ’G Unit’s Top 50 DJ’s Celebrity Edition Nintendo DS’. Only 60 of these units were ever made. But rarer still are the 3 prototype units Nintendo made to attract 50 to do their campaign. But even rarer then that is this unit that I’m offering, the original unit that rapper’s 50 Cent & Xzibit actually played on (see pictures).”
– Assassin’s Creed Promo Art Folder! Rare Official Ubisoft Japan – “Up for auction is a very rare clear file folder that was sold exclusively at the 2nd Assassin’s Creed Art Exhibit which was held in 3 cities in Japan between August 2011 and January 2012 for about 10 days in each city. The folder depicts Assassin’s Creed artwork that was original for the art exhibit and commissioned by Ubisoft Japan. This artwork was created by famous Japanese artists to try and help promote the games in Japan“. Submitted by Curious Sam (Thanks!)
– 3DO UNIQUE SIGNED Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 Black Console (PAL) & Games & Magazines – “I was fortunate enough to interview Trip Hawkins, founder of EA and 3DO almost eight years ago. Thoroughly nice chap! He was kind enough to sign my console, and copies of Road Rash and Need For Speed. He also signed another copy of Need For Speed which was given away in a competition. The signatures were done with a permanent “Sharpie” pen, so it will not wear off“.
– Starcraft 35″ Framed Autographed Signed Photo Collectors Item – This is a really cool StarCraft poster framed. I think this is unique since I’ve never seen the poster as a promo item so must have been signed at a special event.
– Nintendo Store Rep Employee Promo Seal of Quality Framed Sign – “This auction is for the pictured Nintendo Seal of Quality framed sign. It measures 6″ x 5″, and is made of metal and cardboard. These were originaly given to store reps to display on their desks, and were not available for sale to the public. The box has been opened, but as you can see, the picture has never been displayed.“.
– GameBoy Super Nintendo Promo Store Rep Employee Tape Measure Kit – “This auction is for the pictured Nintendo store rep tape measure kit. These were only given to store reps, and were not available for sale to the public. It has the tape measure, 2 colored pens, and a razor knife. It has been used, but is still very presentable, as you can see“.
– Super Nintendo SNES Store Rep Promo Employee Vest Ask Me About Video Games – “This auction is for the pictured Nintendo employee promotional vest. It has never been used, and is in excellent condition“.
– BLIZZARD 2008 employee Christmas ornament in original box – “Up for auction is a Christmas ornament that was given out to employees of Blizzard Entertainment in 2008. The ornamnet is a simple globe with a gold tag that says Blizzard 2008 and a gold ribbon. The ornament is in Brand New condition, but the box has some wear to it.“.
The next set of auctions all come from the same seller popculturerelicscom. There are a lot of promotional items and it wouldn’t make sense to comment on each one as it’s pretty clear what it is.
