SpeedGamers EarthBound Marathon
Just saw this show up on eBay a few minutes ago. It’s a complete copy of EarthBound (cart, guide, box, inserts, the whole thing!) along with some rare bonus promotional stuff that I’ve heard about but never actually ever seen. You can see the auction here.
The extra bonuses are:
- “EarthBound Times” Mock Newspaper — designed to mimic the newspapers in the game, this paper describes the launch of this amazing SNES game
- EarthBound Original Press Release — this is NOT a photo copy — it’s on Nintendo Press Release letterhead.
- EarthBound Original Fact Sheet — also on Nintendo Press Release letterhead
- 5 Additional Earthbound “Scratch & Sniff” Cards — same as in the Player’s Guide — but allows you to Scratch & Sniff your way through the game and keep the cards in the guide in PERFECT condition. (That’s awesome…)
The price is a bit high for my blood, but many really good quality complete sets will get snatched up right away for at least $300 (hell, that new one went for over $1000!) so the price doesn’t seem too absurd given these super-rare extras.
I swear, the past week or so has been pretty interesting for EarthBound collectors! If anyone gets ahold of this, let us know more about the stuff!
