Very fine automotive sandpaper (1k-2k+ grit), fiebings black leather dye, and a layer of creme/wax melted in with a lighter will work wonders.  You won't have the same grain structure in that area but unless someone is examining your shoes up close no one should notice.

Thanks for the tip. I think they were marked 9 but I couldn't really read it. I decided $18 wasn't worth the risk tonight.

I think they were all labeled NES-001. The one that sold for $13K was a completely sealed special edition of something. A similar set to mine (slightly better condition only because more things were in plastic) just sold on eBay for over $200. I will be holding onto it in case the interest spikes like it did for arcade games, etc.

sadly the original game is missing, but I'll keep an eye out for one from now on...sorry fellow '80s/'90s children, this is going into a dark, hermetically sealed, temperature controlled environment and will not be available.

This is crazy! Never even seen this before. The one we bought new came with the orange plastic gun and a Mario Brothers/Duck Hunt combo. So many good memories. Any of you guys remember Galaga or Marble Madness? Stayed up for hours on end playing those. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I mean, I am on a brand new Macbook pro....

 

Or I am just going color-blind, can anyone else weigh in?

 

shouts to my XL homeys: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JPress-Shaggy-Dog-Shetland-Wool-Crew-Sweater-Mens-XL-Yellow-New-W-Tag-FREE-SHIP-/321032532806?pt=US_CSA_MC_Sweaters&hash=item4abf07b346
