Many people know that I’m a big Nintendo Fanboy and that I collect Nintendo games, goods, memorabilia, and more.  If it says Nintendo on it, and it’s official, I want it.  That’s what the Nintendo Collectors Journal is for.  From this point on I’ll be documenting all the exciting Nintendo items I gather on my travels.  I come across things both new and old so be sure to check back to see what I’ve come across.

Sorry that it’s been a while since my last collectors update.  I had to go to the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships and I’ve been playing other games as well.  I have, however, come across many great items.

The first awesome item I received was a Wii Games Summer 2010 official competitors track jacket.  The back says Wii Finalist and the left sleeve says National Championships.  On the left breast it has the official Wii Games Summer 2010 logo and slogan.

I also was able to obtain several other items from the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships.  Some official Wii Lanyards, flyers about the games, free t-shirt card, and player cards from the event.  I also got ton of Wii Games Summer 2010 pins and other informational papers regarding the rules of the games and more.

Here is a close up of the pins I obtained at the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships.

On the last day of the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships the event staff was just trying to get rid of the official event baseball caps.  I made sure to grab myself some of them as they were giving them out in stacks.  I ended up with over 20.

Also being handed out to finalist at the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships were Wii Fit Plus tote bags.  I ended up scoring three of these.

At the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships I earned myself a Super Mario Bros. Yahtzee Collector’s Edition.  The last one my sister and I won at the Wii Games Summer 2010 NYC Main Event ended up going to her so I’m glad I got one for myself.

The last item I got from the Wii Games Summer 2010 Grand Championships is the box that the Super Mario Mushroom Sour Candies comes in.  These candies come in a Mario Mushroom tin and are sold at many stores.  Having the box is nice though.

Recently I also bought a copy of Metroid: Other M which came with the official Metroid: Other M Art Folio.  This Art Folio has many pictures of character art and in game screen shots with a short description written on the back of each.  Also pictured is a copy of Professor Layton And The Unwound Future that I purchased just last Sunday.

And finally I received the latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine.

  1. I have an original lit Nintendo store display sign that has never been out of the box. Where do I go to have it appraised and possibly sell it?
