So a friend of mine decided to sell his Super Famicom with none other than Miyamoto's autograph on eBay. First I begged him not to sell it, then I begged him to sell it to me. He agreed, but what it's worth I can't afford. I'm trying to find a way to get to his house to steal it while he sleeps but I may not be able to assemble my crack team of thieves and villains in time. I understand his predicament, living in a small apartment you just have to clear things out to have room for essentials. Personally I'd sell my fridge than this little bad boy, but sadly it ain't mine to sell.
The whole point of meeting Miyamoto, he tells me, was to simply meet him. The autograph was just a bonus, and selling the autograph won't take away the experience of meeting the guy that did so much to shape our childhoods. As a collector, however, I hope and pray this thing finds a good and respectable home. If you've ever been in the market for a Super Famicom of some Shiggy signed merch, your ship has just come in.
