Up for sale is a Sonic the Hedgehog 10th Anniversary Sega Dreamcast. This auction comes complete with the box, manuals/inserts, controller and game. According to the seller, there were approximately 40 of these made, each hand-signed by Yuji Naka, meaning that it’s not a manufactured signature. How do I know? Well, you won’t get much information about this console other than whats written in the auction, and not much info pertaining the autograph. However, comparing the autograph in this auction with this picture can convince you that Yuji Naka signed the consoles himself. Maybe you already knew that, but I wanted to clarify for those who didn’t.
The seller says:
“Dreamcast Sonic 10th Anniversary (PAL): This model was produced to celebrate Sonic’s 10th anniversary and was given to internal employees ONLY AROUND 40 WHERE EVER PRODUCED SO IT IS EXTREMELY RARE. It shouldn’t be confounded with the equivalent Japanese version. SIGNED by YUJI NAKA original head of SONIC TEAM (see description below for details regarding YUJI NAKA ) this version is believed to be of a higher quality and value. It has a vivid blue casing and underside plus a Sonic sticker on the lid and Sonic the Hedgehog 10th Anniversary written in white around the GD-ROM lid rim. It came in a standard retail PAL box bundled with a non-standard matching controller (only the window outlier is vivid blue). So for any avid collector or just a huge sonic fan this is a once in a life time opportunity to buy this collectors edition any questions feel free to ask and I shall answer to the best of my ability. Thank you for looking .“
The seller is located in the UK, and the starting bid is 1,500.00 GBP($2,423.70 US). This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog so I am pretty sure we’ll be seeing a bunch of other rare collectibles surface eBay in the upcoming months.
