I got it off a man in Tampico, Mexico. I was super hesitant because that fact so I talked to juan, the owner, for weeks before I made the deal. He is a used game dealer down there and gets local lots. He found this in an eternal champions case. He said his son told him it was worth alot, and he said he didn't think it was. What a find, i shoulda asked how much he paid for it! Bet he made 5000% profit or better lol. He was a great guy tho. But back then acclaim did assemble these carts in Mexico. So it may have never even made it to the US. But I think it more than likely got sent down there when CD games became popular and older games were sent to not so we'll off parts of the world to try to make money off them.

I bet whoever had it before him got sick of playing a game that last a few minutes hahaha

Crazy this is a Sega forum and you have only had a handful of replies. Congrats though on picking this up. There haven't been many sales for these so how did you and the owner come to a price agreement?

Yes it is crazy indeed. Though this has always been a quiet forum even at its prior peak.

This is an awesome find indeed, congratulations.

I've noticed Sega collectors are a lot more quiet about collecting, compared to say NeS collectors hahaha

Well I been wanting one ever since I knew they existed. I love Sega Genesis, that and stealing candy we're what my childhood was built on lol I had bugged a few people and put up a couple posts looking for one and got the ...never gunna happen vibes . So when this popped up I gave him a $1000 offer , honestly yes that's me tryna get a steal, dick move as it wasn't fair and he shot that down no problem. But why not start low right?

Weeks go buy of many equally low offers to no luck. I hit a sizeable jackpot at the local casino and emailed him. He said he had a deal in progress for it and if deal didn't go through in a week he'd hit me up. . I still bugged him every other day just to keep the fire hot and it came to my favor.

Did I get close to my first offer?? Hellllllll no lol but I love it. My Sega Grail. I have almost everything Sega Genesis I want now..

Except blue game factory and outback joey..... Almost got the complete one that was for sale around same time.... I chose this. Smart move u think?

I personally would prefer the Blockbuster cartridge. Both are good pieces to own but the Blockbuster cartridge is more my style. It all depends on the type of collector I guess.

Excellent work getting that sticker off, I'm glad you made a pick up that you're satisfied with. Good luck on the last couple you need, Funkatron.
