that's the "gatfold box" version of the game , does it have the end label ?
 
I forget why some text labeled carts are colored that way.
 
worth checking out the instructions, difficulty switches used for different stuff and division tables explained ...

It is indeed.
Sadly, however, the end label with the number listed on it is missing.
I'm thinking I could try to print out a replacement so it at least looks complete.

Me too.  I don't find them often.  But the nice thing is, they stand out easily since the boxes are smaller.

I've been on a Wii run lately. 

2600 "Airlock" is available for trade if anyone needs it.

So this isnt a thrift store find. I was helping some friends move and i found this in their attic. They laughed and said this can be your payment. Ive always wanted a PS1 with a portable screen, but i have never seen the portable battery. I took it home and have cleaned it (after i took the photos). I have tried looking it up with no luck. I found 1 site that had it for like $400? But that cant be right.

Yall ever have one of these?

Not a thrift store, but my local library has a "book sale" area.

 

I found two PS2 games (Madden 2003 and Tomy Clancy's Splinter Cell, both complete) for 50 cents each!

Could not resist all the good junk today.

  • Two PS2 games
  • One Gamecube game
  • An unopened pirate metal sign
  • Unopened Ichiro bobblehead. 
  • And -- oh baby -- one of my favorite things to find.  An analog (non-HD) LCD TV.  These things are perfect for retro game systems.
