Missed Connections: NA Member Looking for a Dragon Warrior II Poster

My poor memory strikes again! Updated 16 Dec 2019.

I'm not known for having a great memory, but I believe just before NA closed down, there was a member looking to purchase a particular Dragon Warrior II poster. I don't believe anyone could figure out where it can from but it is promotional in nature. I tried my best to use Google and GoCollect to search for the thread, but I just could not find it.

Well, Mystery Man, I hope you migrated to VGS. 

NOT MY AUCTION.

Godspeed.

Yeah, didnt look legit. Also, that member was offering 1500$ for DW3.

Okay, I thought it was 4.

That was an obvious reseal. It would have been gone in minutes otherwise.

Yeah, I realized after I posted. Still in nice condition and sold in just a couple hours. It was posted right before I made the thread.

Updated with another Dragon Warrior related item. This time a poster  think I remember someone requesting before NA closed down.

I don't think the poster is legit either.   Many of the items he's selling are clearly pages cut out from comic books; I recall some of those comic ads vividly, can see they are on newsprint, and he sells comics too.

Note this:  " framed and matted, final size 11x14". "

The implication is that the paper inside is smaller, say the size of a comic book page.

I suspect this DW2 poster is just a inside front or back cover of a comic with the ad cut out.     The dimensions do not suggest a 'poster' size item.

most of them look like glossy poster paper because they are likely inside front cover ads, or back cover ads, or inside back cover ads (since all of those, along with the front cover, are printed on a single double sided sheet of paper which is then folded.   One sheet, four pages.

This one, he got a little lazy or thought the 007 connection was good, and he took an inside page, note the newsprint paper

thx.   Comics from that era are mostly worthless but have great game ads all over the place.   He's taking $1 comics, cutting them up and framing single pages in $10 frames, and trying to sell the package for $35.     

I see.

Here is the other auction I was talking about. They don't look like pages from a book, but the seller only describes them as print ads and doesn't mention the size. So most likely they are exactly what you're talking about. I wish I could find the original NA thread, but even with a bunch of searching, I still came up empty.

Hard to tell, but seller definitely looks like someone that could be asked and get a decent answer.   Good lead.

I wonder if he even knows where they came from. It seems like almost nothing from the NES era is in the hands of the original owner at this point. I'll update if I hear back.

Update: The seller didn't have much to add. He said "Hi, the posters are letter size. Appear to be from a magazine. Hope that helps."

No H-Seam so probably a re-wrap.

I know last time I got a little bit too excited and posted before verifying, but this time I think I've got my head on straight. An eBay seller just posted legit sealed copies of DW3 and DW4 for auction. I cannot wait to see what price these bad boys go for.

Yeah, already over the $1500 that the dude on NA was offering several months back. In my experience, these games are quite difficult to find sealed. I think Wata may have graded a DW4 and posted on their Instagram a while back, but I've not seen any DW3s.

Looks like someone backdoored these and all the other sealed games the guy was selling. All his auctions are suddenly cancelled and marked as unsold. I'd love to know how much the buyer paid.

Can't figure out how to see all the other auctions that were cancelled, got a link?

Hey guys, I'm the one who was looking for it on NA, was actually dw3. I was the high bidder when they were taken down, the seller sent me the attached message saying she was going to get them graded. Haven't heard anything since. I wonder if it was just someone trying to make a quick buck without any actual items, seems suspicious. Hopefully they just get them graded and put them back up

Sounds a bit like hogwash and the seller actually just sold them outside eBay to save on fees, but maybe I'm just being a pessimist. Anyways, thanks for the update! It's tough to nail down a value on items this rare.
