What is with this guy's "homebrews" which all seem to be the same sticker with the name hand written on?

Looks like someone that was around in the early days of the Homebrew scene who probably knew John Dondzila and/or Daniel Bienvenu. Possibly even could make his own carts.

Anyway, there is nothing wrong with the carts that he is selling seeing as the games on them were all released as rom files (Nim, Spectank, Kill Barney, etc.) without stipulation.

He is also selling some released carts like Star Fortress by John D. and Power Lords by CGE that are authentic.

I'm not entirely certain that particular Star Fortress is authentic. Certainly doesn't match any of the multiple, ad hoc copies Dondzilla himself issued over the years that I've seen or possess.

 

The seller in question has stated (publicly and privately) that what's being offered comes from a collection that he's not utterly familiar with, which suggests it isn't his, should you take him at his word.

The Star Fortress cart is legit, using the Activision cart shell and PCB that John D. used for some of his cart releases, and the label is spot on. Identical to the one that I owned, sans the plastic clamshell with insert sheet.

Doesn't matter if the seller knows anything about them, there is nothing wrong with the items he is selling unlike in other past situations.

All that matters now for the seller is if someone is willing to pay the price(s) that he is asking.

And the Winky Trap Hack rom file was released freely without any stipulation by J-F. So if someone wants to make a cart out of it and then decides to sell it, there is no wrong being done here. If there is, than there are A LOT of people around here that are guilty of doing just this.... including J-F.

Unfortunately I do not, Al, because if I did, I would give him a heads up that someone might try to have these listings removed.

Like I said before, there is nothing wrong with these listings unlike in past situations... Juice for example.

The label is a match. I have never seen (or have had) a "legit" Dondzilla release shelled in an Activision casing, but apparently you do. So, I stand corrected.

You are reading too much into what I wrote. I didn't connect A to B as you do.

Seeing as the items that this seller has up on eBay are being questioned here, someone needs to step up and "connect A to B" in all fairness to the seller.

If you'd like to, go ahead, but pin that on commenters who decry the listings, not me. Thanks.

Have you guys seen these reproduction labels?  They look to be very well done.  Is this an AA member making these?

No idea, BUT he is selling them cheap with free shipping...............unless they go way higher.  May be a good thing to buy if you want some games.

Wonder if it's for the adam, and that's why it didn't work on th CV when they tested.   A little high for a non working cart!

It's a Coleco In-House copy utility. I'm pretty sure that it's what we in the ADAM community have known for years as "TapeUtil", which I have a cartridge of that is Rev. 22 whereas this one on eBay is Revision 25.
