I have an original Gameboy, originally white, but now consistently yellowed and missing its battery cover. It comes with a box that has somebody's address written on it in blue pen (this is optional, I can chuck the box it if you want to save on postage).

It also comes with Super Mario Land on a rather shabby looking cartridge with no label.

£5+p&p

With the case it about £5.00 provided I could send it as a small packet (I am not sure what the size limits are).

Without the case it would be about £3.50 as a standard small packet airmail.

It appears to be working, although the supplied cartridge is a little temperamental and requires a bit of blowing to get going. Also, Gameboys are very fussy about their constant power supplies, so you will probably need to get hold of a replacement battery shutter to ensure smooth operation.

For now I shall consider Salaxis54 the first in the queue.

CORRECTED: (sorry, I muddled up the postage prices when I first submitted this reply)

I managed to pick up one of these a couple months ago with the original box and accessories. Everything was in great condition! There's nothing like the original green and black screen of the GameBoy. :)

Good luck with the sale!

This one certainly is not pristine, but it does have that old style consistent with the original NES. I can not say I particularly like the system these days, but they were prized possesions when I was at school.

I just noticed that there are a few scratches on the screen of this unit too, up in the top right and bottom left hand corners.

Salaxi64 has pm'd me his desire to buy this item without the case (a total of £8.50) and I am about to pm him details of how to pay me.

Hmm, this is odd. I thought I had posted here saying that the payment had been received and the item sent via Royal Mail Airmail small packet, but the post has apparently disappeared. Has there been a restoration from a backup or something?
