funclub.jpg Co-editor FrankC of Lost Levels fame was kind enough to point out a rather fun eBay game ephemera auction, for classic Nintendo Fun Club newsletters.

Though the person auctioning is a little heavy on the hyperbole: "Before any video game web site, before any video game magazine, there was the Nintendo Fun Club! Formed in 1987 the fun club was the magazine precursor to the Nintendo Power magazine", he goes on to note: "Up for auction are the ORIGINAL and COMPLETE volume 1, number 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 issues, welcome letter, and two packets detailing the current and planned future Nintendo Entertainment System games."

It's cool stuff, especially the Zelda issue, but bidding is currently stalled at just 1c - maybe because, in one of the issues: "Word search game has two (of 10) words circled". Uhoh - couldn't he work out any the rest? In the meantime, we wait patiently for bids, oh yes.
