As mentioned, PCBs can be very hardy. As long as they're not powered up damp they're fine.

Shame about the water damge though. Them's the risk with woody cabs

This could have made a very disappointing episode of Game Chasers...
30 Cabs, but all rubbish...

Another cool find in Isreal Barn, one of Boards lads threw it link to this Otaku.

I think may have been Outrun Deluxe and Mini Cute founds some great finds at end of the video.

Have a look at the label on this cart, see along the bottom where it says Super Nintendo...is it just me or is that label very slanted as it goes along, with possibly some white edging showing? You need to hover over the image to zoom in - http://www.ebay.com/itm/EarthBound-S...item27dfec854f

That's inkjet ink printed on sticky standard A4 paper.

The ink quality doesn't look good enough to me for that cart to be genuine.

Really? I wouldn't know just by the pics that the ink/paper is off...the orientation of the label though looks really off to me...

Well I'm not an expert but that paper looks like **** to me.

Maybe it's just a really bad quality photo but considering how high resolution I can make out in regards to the details on the actual cart itself (which seems legit) in comparison to that the printing quality and the label look like crap.

I could of course be totally wrong. The alignment does look off to me too.

I'd put money on it being a repo. If there's any doubt at all in your mind it's probably not worth the risk.

The label being off would be enough for me to walk from that one. I'd bet it's a repro alright

There's a boxed Playstation in Enable Ireland on Capel Street, rings in at 20 and comes with a game, apparently. The box is a little battered. They've also a less noteworthy, phat PS2 that's 25; it's unboxed and I think quite dusty too.

Not sure if this was posted already but

Interesting story behind it and wonder if the new owner will release a rom. I'd love to give it a go.
