Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 11th, 2012 | Auctions, EarthBound, Images

I noticed a copy of EarthBound that hit eBay just a few hours ago and couldn’t help but post about it:

Look at that poor EarthBound cart 🙁 Adopt it from eBay here and give it a more loving home.

Might need some major face surgery though.

30 Comments to Save This EarthBound Cart

OH. MY. GAWD. It’s $60. If that doesn’t just take the cake of all things ridiculous.

I certainly hope someone with some serious disposable income can grab this poor little guy and somehow make another shirt for him. He’s half-naked, scared, lonely, and we already know he STINKS.

Just buy a new label… 🙁

Awwwww…poor Earthbound cart! *hugs*

Those jackals.

Serafym said on Jan. 11, 2012

I would definitely make sure it’s vaccinated first, that thing looks scary! And I’ll second FlyingMan’s comment, $60 for a cart that looks like someone tried to ride it down the street, I don’t think so.

If they would ship to Germany I would give it a new home =(

1 bid. At least it will be going to a home that will appreciate him. 🙂 This is weird. I’m getting all fuzzy over a SNES cart.

Pepper said on Jan. 11, 2012

Oh no, this is like those Sarah Maclachlan animal shelter commercials! I seriously want to buy it now.

Robert said on Jan. 11, 2012

I cried a little on the inside when I saw it.
I don’t think it needed a $60 start though…if its in this condition maybe half that as a starting point.

I remember when pristine Earthbound carts sold for $50…

A cartridge is not just for Christmas.

Kasumi said on Jan. 12, 2012

Yeah, I’m really glad I bought mine when it was $50. This is insane.

Hey Mato, I just bid 100 bucks on this. I’m desperate for an Earthbound cart, and if I can get this one for 50 bucks cheaper, then thats awesome. Thanks for the tip!

Anyone have any suggestions for repairing, should I win? I could print a label on the computer, but I’d like it to look as good as possible.

Carl said on Jan. 12, 2012

If I had a game that was in that condition, I’d probably just remove the label entirely and give the cartridge a good cleaning.

Robo85 said on Jan. 12, 2012

I always did wonder how things like this happen to game carts, poor ol’ EarthBound 🙁

Dialga Thunderstar said on Jan. 12, 2012

ouch.

Cre'lus said on Jan. 13, 2012

who would DO such a thing?

mrstaplez said on Jan. 14, 2012

I won it! I’ll give it a facelift after it gets here, and send an email in with the happy result =) Maybe i’ll throw a pic in a forum topic here too, if anyone wants to see it.

Mato said on Jan. 15, 2012

Dang, even this beat up cart went for $117. I bet all the other SNES games are jealous 😛

FlyingManCourage said on Jan. 15, 2012

MrStaplez, PLEASE DO! I think we all want to see this poor little guy cleaned up and looking good. “Every gamer’s crazy about a sharp-dressed cart.”

LOL Mato. E.V.O. might not be too jelly.

Youkai said on Jan. 16, 2012

That’s why I keep my EarthBound cartridge right next to my monitor, so that I may keep my eyes on it at all times.

PK Rockin said on Jan. 17, 2012

I already have an EarthBound cartridge. I don’t need another one. Also, I like my games to be in a better condition that that copy of EarthBound.

Anonymous said on Jan. 17, 2012

If i had tried to sell that cart, I would give it a face lift to make it look buyable first.

GiegueFanboy said on Feb. 9, 2012

WE NEED TO GET THIS EARTHBOUND TO AN SNES, STAT!

Manimanistatue III said on Feb. 24, 2012

I’m glad I got both of my copies for free… and I’m selling one. Already sold for $99. sorry guys. But seriously. Both my copies are about 12 years old and They both look almost new. I kept them safely stored and I never abused them.

Hawk EB said on Apr. 22, 2012

I wood buy this cart if i had not been off the web. Poor guy 0_0

Ness is the best said on Aug. 12, 2012

I’d give it a shirt, and some other stuff before I play it.

Earthboundian said on Nov. 12, 2012

the person who beat it up must have been a chrono trigger fan

EB912 said on Nov. 20, 2012

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

SuperNess said on Jan. 15, 2013

But, Seriously. Mint condition or not. Why are Earthbound carts so expensive?
