#0??? The “Mario” Cart
 
82 Confirmed with Photo
#0??? The “Striped” Cart 1 Confirmed with Blurry Photo
#0??? The “Chris” Cart 3 Confirmed with No Photo
  1 Rumored from Reliable Sources
NWC GOLD NOTE 1 Cannot Disclose Number
26 Additional NWC cartridges were sacrificed to make NWC Gold. It is believed that there are currently 13 known surviving copies.
88 Total Known Copies
 
97.78% Discovered if 90 copies
25.14% Discovered if 350 copies
22.00% Discovered if 400 copies

 

 

 

NOTE: The three "Confirmed with No Photos" copies are considered known to exist because they were previously discussed on NintendoAge. Photos have since been removed from the internet and no known photos survived.

The two "Rumored" copies are from very reliable sources who wish to remain anonymous. I do not have any photos to prove they exists, but I am highly confident that this source has no reason to lie.

All cartridges in green or yellow are confirmed to exist. The 1 cartridge with a blurry photo is too blurry to make out the number, but its number is known because of past NintendoAge discussion. It may as well be considered "Confirmed with No Photo" since the blurry photo is the only one that I could find.


PRIVACY NOTICE

It is my solemn duty not to track owners, or sales data.

IF YOU OWN A COPY AND WOULD LIKE TO KEEP ITS NUMBER A SECRET, PLEASE ALLOW ME TO KEEP YOUR SECRET SAFE. I have other confirmed numbers not publicly listed, and you can have yours added to the secret list.

Just watched "High Score" Ep 2 and they interview Jeff Hansen and it looks like he has an original NWC from the competition.  Not close enough to get a number.  Was this documented before?

OH NVM, i was able to pause it.  It was 0221.

Holy crap! No it isn't documented :)

So...do I owe you $100, or Netflix?

I wont turn down free money for doing nothing haha.  But its not important.  I went to check cuz I figured someone probably did as well.  I just took a quick screenshot.

Thanks, I also just logged into my Netflix account and tried to rip as many screenshots as I could of it, but now I have to watch the entire video to get all the memorabilia spread throughout. And I guess the entire series now.

DM me your paypal and I'll send over some cash.

...

Also, we're only 8 more copies away from putting the final nail in the coffin that 90 copies exist!

Its only really the 2nd episode.  The series is broken up into chunks and thats the NES one.  There might be some little bits in episode 4 when they talk about Sega and their championship which I didn't even know about.  Ill Dm you tomorrow.

You just beat me on this.  I'm watching that episode right now and thought of this thread.  😅

Sorry Twizer! But you know the saying, you snooze you miss the early worm or something like that.

Im still paying well for photos of ALL nwcs, even known copies as long as they’re not photos already in my archive. Known copies have a much smaller bounty though.

What if someone owns an NWC and sends you like, a photo from every imaginable angle?

Each significant profile is worth something for my archive. So you have the Front, Top, Back, Circuit Board, Light shines on label from various angles, and that’s about it really...maybe the F & B codes for the cartridge innards is valuable as well.

Though someone can really exploit this by taking a hundred photos of the game in various settings, in which case I’ll just blacklist the number and call it “over-documented”

#0260 comes to mind, but I’m still willing to pay for photos of that one for the time being.

I can imagine an Instagram account dedicated to someone taking pictures of their NWC on different shelves in their collection, or in random places and making posts like “just going for a walk with my NWC”

You may be jumping the gun a bit on this one. As much as I'd like to believe this is a new confirmed copy, Netflix could've easily made a replica cartridge for the sake of the documentary. I'm no NWC expert, though.

I just watched that episode yesterday, and I was wondering why they didn't prominently display the cart, considering it's significance. I figure the reason could either be ...

A) to keep Jeff Hansen from getting hounded by people over the cart (which would imply it's authenticity), or

B) because a half-baked replica cart could be scrutinized too much by people like us (which would imply that it was faked)

True, which is why all NEW pictures I add have date stamps added so I can revert back to a point where I need to re-evaluate every photo added since.

Not gonna lie, the plastic wrap on the cart has me concerned but the damage and browning on the label makes me think legit.

Im sure it wouldn’t be too hard to track Jeff down myself, but I think it’s best not to as to avoid breaking my rule bout tracking people who own these things.

Solid - you've got a good system going, here.

Concerning the plastic-wrap: that actually gives me a bit more confidence in the authenticity of the cart. It looks like tape to cover-up the exposed bit of the pcb, which is something that a prop-department might not think to do, but a kid with a NES game might do in a heartbeat to avoid damaging the circuit board of his fancy new contest-cart.

I REALLY doubt he has a fake cart considering he was actually in the contest and won it.  The wear on the label looks legit as well.  Plus the PCB is unique ONLY to those carts (NES-EVENT-01).  The only 'repros' ever made were the ones by RETRO USB, and on top of that, you'd then have to modify an original NES cart, put in a fake dipswitch etc.  It would be a LOT of work.  I would say that they probably didn't even know, or even Jeff knows how much its actually worth.

I'm not too worried about Jeff having a fake, or the one in the video being fake. I have prejudice towards all copies of NWC, especially undocumented copies.

Howard Phillips, Jeff Hansen, Thor Aackerlund, Robert Whiteman, and Minoru Arakawa could say they have a copy and I wouldn't mark it as "green" unless I have a photo for reference. They'd be in the orange though.

Of course, and it makes sense because you want 100% proof.  My point is that its really hard to fake a NWC cart accurately.

Show me evidence that #32 grey NWC has been photographed or documented. 

Hi Cam, welcome to the community.

Any specific reason why you need the photo? I'd be more than happy to help if I knew what you needed this photo for.

Also, here's more than enough evidence. The most important thing is showing, the cutout, and the glue mottling pattern.

I see the list has been taken down so I cannot confirm if you have this one documented yet, but No. 0287 was featured on an episode of Metal Jesus Rocks on YouTube.

Yes, I have that one recorded.

It's actually one of the most heavily documented ones I have!
