WTB: every copy of Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt you can spare

For those that know me, I know I've been a phantom. Life got in the way. However I'm still kicking 馃檪 On the old site, I recall somebody was chasing after as many of the Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt (dual-cart) as they could find. They got pretty damn far if I recall.

I am on the same path. I'm currently sitting at 233聽copies. My obsession all started when I realized I was sitting on a dozen or so randomly, and figured "why not". It's my all-time favorite game, and it's also the game that brought me back into NES-era gaming in the mid-2000's.

Ideally, I can pay $6/shipped per copy, which will hopefully be more advantageous for folks in bulk. I'll take 1/10/100/1000 copies, whatever you have. If you can provide >=50 copies, hopefully we can get it closer to $5/each 馃檪My requirements are fairly lax, though I do ask:

(a) it's the SMB/DH 2-in-1 (not the trio)
(b) The end label is mostly in tact
(c) The front label is mostly there

I've had some luck hitting my price point on eBay, though it's been slow and not too satisfying. Hopefully somebody here can help me out! Thanks in advance.

Some pictures from earlier in the journey -- this first one is my personal favorite, as it's unintentionally so ominous 馃檪

I hadn't heard of this until now -- but wow, what a sight to behold!

Dang聽 why do you want them?聽 i have like 5 copies however i have 11 nes console so i have to have these to pair with my consoles.

Mitch Hedberg comes to mind: "Rice is great if you're really hungry and want to eat two thousand of something."

I'm definitely not trying to pry yours from your hands -- I fully recognize the desire to pair them with NES consoles 馃檪聽But beyond my adoration for the game, including the influence it's had on my life -- I don't know why I'm chasing this with fever... I will say, though, that watching the pile grow is incredibly satisfying. I also make a point to clean them all up as necessary, so it's a whole process. Call it a form of therapy 馃檪

Had to look that up. Definitely worth the time. Imagine what humanity could accomplish if we weren鈥檛 all wasting our聽time on stupid pursuits. I approve though.

i wish i was half as persistent/dedicated to any one thing as you are with smb/dh. rooting for you!

Persistent and dedicated, though evidently horrible at circling back to update threads.

Currently at 233 with something like 25 en-route. Thanks for all the help so far, still going strong!

I've been watching that seller's listings for a while. Forgiving the price, my major concern with those is the stickers -- I've seen many labels ruined over the years removing Record Exchange, CD Exchange, and similar stickers that partially cover the labels. These look much better, but still.... Untested, tons of stickers, high asking price = I've stayed away. Thanks for looking out though.
