I can't imagine it's very rare. (Also, I'm not sure a single image will stimulate conversation well enough.)

Just the cart in okay condition, probably like $10. if you have everything (manual, map, sleeve) like probably $30-$40. Just depends on the collector. There's probably not many "serious" Nintendo collectors without a copy of this game.

Not very much. There is one that comes with the map and manual on ebay with no bids, $9.99.

That sounds about right. If there weren't a hundred ways to obtain a copy of this game then it'd probably be worth a lot more. But at this point, all you'd really be getting is gold plastic.

Not rare at all. I've got one. Not even sure why really.

For games as common as Zelda, it doesn't mean shit if it ain't factory. A factory copy goes for $500. Opened is like $20.

It's not.

FACTORY SEALED? Impossible.

Shits worth like a dollar.

A google says what? Seriously though. It's fucking software. That shits everywhere in physical and digital form. There is no rarity about it at all seperated from your own feelings of nostalgia.

Does not contain real gold (sorry.)
