Random memory - Back in the day as a kid I would be thankful of 2600 carts in ANY condition even with torn or missing labels, I guess I was more creative and had more time in those days as I would literally create new labels with sticky paper, colored pencils and I would even cover them over top with transparent sticky tape in an attempt to preserve / protect my work. While they were hardly magnificent works of art they were creative and original and damn I wish I had kept them over the years.

    I picked up some like that. My Tutankham has no label. It is sometimes cheaper to get those since some people turn an eye from a game that has poor or no labels. But it is a good opportunity to get titles cheaper.

    Hey, if a game works, I could care less if the label sucks. My copies of Adventure, Galaxian, and Swordquest Earthworld all have ratty labels, but they work perfectly fine.

    Those bad labels are just a sign of love ;)
