So, as a kid I used to have Frogger 2.  It was one of my favorite 2600 games.  At one point I think I accidentally knocked it onto the floor and stepped on it in middle school.  A few weeks ago I wanted to get another copy and was discouraged by how high it was priced on ebay.  I ended up finding a copy that had a really crappy label for a lot cheaper than the other offerings.  It had what looked like coffee stains, tears, and a name written on it in black sharpie.  Sorry about the poor image quality, it is from the original auction photo.

I restored it using a rubbing alcohol wipe to remove the name (don't try this on a regular printed label it will remove the ink from that... I used it on the metallic part)

a silver sharpie to make all other corrections.

 

I then cleaned it up nicely...

 

check out the restored version.

Very nice. Rick Harrison will give you a shiny penny now that the restoration work won't cut in his profits. Haha, seriously tho nice work.
