I guess I'm bad about trying to breath life into original parts.  All I did was take my 72-pin connector off, cut cardboard to the width, or smaller than, the opening of the connector.  I then wrap masking tape around one end so it can be used to clean the pins.  Sometimes I've used emery boards, too, and used canned air to blow away any particles.  Last ditch efforts have been using pliers to gently bend the pins back in place by applying slight pressure on the top and bottom plastics of the connector end the cart goes into.  So far my NES has been flicker free for 5 years now doing those and is still using the original pins it came with.

 

If you don't find what you are looking for on ebay or are not comfortable with that site there is an online game store that sells them.  And with free shipping on order of $25 or more you might could get some games you are missing along the way to save on shipping costs ;)  Link to the pins I found below.  Nice game room!!
