A bunch of video game auctions signings just hit eBay and some of them are quite impressive, especially one which I consider the HOLY GRAIL of all video game signings. Seller meaganvanb has put up a Nintendo DS Mario Kart Edition handheld with five autographs, two of the being very unique. In this auction you have:
- Shigeru Miyamoto: One of the most iconic video game designers in history. Miyamoto is credited with the creation of Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, and more.
- Koji Kondo: A legendary video game composer who composed the classic Mario and Zelda tunes, among many others.
- Charles Martinet: Mario’s official voice actor since 1995. He also provides voices for Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, and more.
- Eiji Aonuma: A video game designer and director who oversaw several Legend of Zelda titles including Ocarina of time, Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Phantom Hourglass, and more.
- Martin Leung: Known as the “Video Game Pianist,” Martin became famous for playing the Super Mario Bros theme blindfolded. He now tours the world and performs with Video Games Live.
Whats more impressive is that this auction is for the Red Cross to Aid Japan(I donated money, have yooouu??). What happened in Japan is truly a tragedy, and it’s heart-breaking to watch the videos on the news.
Although the eBay auction isn’t linked to the Red Cross, I’m certain that the seller has good intentions. There’s 6 days 19 hours left, and the bids at $215. Bid!
