Man loses mind and sells Miyamoto signed Super Famicom on eBay

By Dan Zuccarelli . March 21, 2008 . 11:03am


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

    If I was Miyamoto I’d sell these on ebay myself.

    Lol, I love the title of this article.. I actually don’t place much emphasis on signatures either, except it’s proof that you met w/ a famous person. I guess in the future, you would look back to it and go “yeah, I met Miyamoto on that fateful day..”

    The closest I have come to meeting him was when he visited the NY Nintendo store (Pokemon center then?). Alas, after standing 6 hrs on line, I only saw him waving to us from the 2nd floor, like a king gracing common peasants w/ his presence :)

    On a sidenote, I hate those yellowing on the Super Famicom systems..

    I hope it goes to a good home too! But your friend is right, those things are only material, its the memories which matter!

    Now all I need is an Nokia N Gage autographed by John Romero.

    I understand his view about the memories not being takes away when he sells this. But I too would sooner sell my fridge then this little thing.
