This is a follow up to a previous post on the Konami collector cards.
Recap: At some point starting in 1987, Konami decided to include a collector card with all their Famicom titles. Each card had an illustration related to the game; some cards featured screenshots or pieces of screenshots, others had artwork of scenes in the game.
After much searching, I have now almost completed the set! While there were multiple cards per title in some cases, I’ve only collected one per game.
It seems unlikely I’ll ever get a complete copy of Exciting Boxing. It came in a huge box with a novelty inflatable controller, and commands insane prices online now.
Here’s my set:
Ai Senshi Nicol and Arumana no Kiseki
Dracula II and Contra
Do Re Mikko and Dragon Scroll
Exciting Baseball and Exciting Basketball (Double Dribble)
Exciting Billards and Exciting Soccer
Falsion and Getsu Fumaden
Konami Wai Wai World and Majo Densetsu II (Knightmare II)
Meikyujin Dababa and Metal Gear
Salamander and Tetsuwan Atomu (Mighty Atom aka Astro Boy)
I managed to get the card for Exciting Boxing!
