Hey guys! I just moved and perused some local garage sales in the new neighborhood, and found a guy who had some N64 stuff (nothing great) but had one NES game to sell. It was a boxed copy of Golf for the NES; but it's a bit different than all the other copies I can find.
I *think* it might actually be brand new even though there's no cellophane, and let me explain why. I took the game out of the box and you can tell it has literally never been played. The label is brand new. Not so much as a fingerprint or scuff or anything. The manual and ROB the Robot poster are mint.
Then the back of the box looks like this:
See on the top there? It's actually a perforated spot you are supposed to tear in the cardboard to make a "hang tag" out of (pretty clever!). I have never seen this before. Also, the very few pictures I can find of a sealed Golf has a plastic hang tag like this:
And one "mint in box" I found looks like this:
As you see, no perforation lines to rip a hang tag into it. What the did I find here? Thanks guys!
