Original Price Tags on Old Gaming Stuff

Does anybody else enjoy seeing original price tags on old game stuff?

I didn't used to. I'd be one of those guys who carefully tried to remove them.

But something has changed. Now I rather like them! (except the large ones that cover the art)

Take for instance the Ice Hockey tag only $1.99.

It looks like a drug store item...and guess what? it was!

This must have been a crash discount.

 

Also, look at this Sky Jinks:

Same price. Maybe same store. But it looks like it came from the clearance section of a grocery store. Makes me wish I had a time machine!

 

So how about you? Do you like them? Do you have any pictures to share?
