I loved the Super Nintendo soccer games all the way from Super Soccer to Super Soccer Champ (ya I know, titles could have been better). I was never big on prototypes and don’t know anyone else that’s big into them as well. I can also say I’m no expert when it comes to this field. But, I use to own a Jaws NES prototype back in the day and the board was different than the regular version/had that signature white LJN sticker on it instead of the sticker with Jaws on it. Wasn’t able to notice anything different during my progression through the game. I beat the game and noticed nothing. So here’s the thing, some prototypes will have noticeable changes and others will have nothing. So this is why I was never big on them because there’s no point in spending $2k on something that’s exactly like the regular version. So what the cart looks different or has screws in strange places, in my case, having a different sticker than the regular version. I would like to see extra levels, or something that wasn’t included in the original game.
With that said, the only prototype that made sense to me was the Goldeneye 64 prototype. The prototype is different as I heard that you actually have access to the little Island across from the Bridge in the first level. If you ever played Goldeneye 64 and would zoom your sniper on the right side of the bridge (head North from gate) then you probably noticed the small island with the buildings. Supposedly this was suppose to be another piece added to the level where you would need to take a boat and go to the other side. I’m not sure why the developers never added it to the game but maybe there wasn’t enough room? Or that the first level was long enough? Not sure, but as a kid I was fascinated by this and when I heard there was a Goldeneye64 prototype once on eBay that had access to this little island I was obsessed.
Anyhow, back to Super Soccer Champ! Seller mentions that the development board is a bit bigger than the standard version and the screws are different than in the regular SNES version. Here is what he says in the auction: “This is a prototype of Super Soccer Champ for Super Nintendo. The cartridge contains a development board, and the game has been tested. The board is bigger than the standard retail version of this game as seen in the second photo (lower board is for reference, but I will include it with the purchase upon request). Another cool detail about this prototype is the screws the cartridge uses (not the standard snes ones). The cartridge is in used condition with some cosmetic wear and some peeling on the label corners. There is a rattle (a common issue but one I would want to know of in advance) that can be resolved with a bit of bubble wrap placed inside the cartridge (happy to do this for you upon request). ”

VGA Graded Games:
I don’t normally post ridiculously overpriced VGA games unless they are on regular auction or if the seller has a decent buy-it-now price. Currently seller maizeblueaa has a bunch of cool NES games that were graded and for cheap. The only one on regular auction is this Double Dragon VGA game although it was a very low score. However, if you want to see the complete list of what the seller has click here!
