ONE OF A KIND PROTOTYPE TIGER HAND HELD MAGIC JOHNSON BASKETBALL GAME AUTOGRAPH
ONE OF A KIND! HAS SIGNED LETTER FROM TIGER ELECTRONICS FORMER NATIONAL SALES MANAGER CONFIRMING THE ITEM!

Extremely collectable!  Only one in existence!

Prototype of the 1992 Magic Johnson's Basketball Handheld Video Game.  As you can see in the pictures there are no labels above the center 4 buttons that there would be on a production model, or any copyright information printed on the bottom of the cover under the 4 center buttons.

There are no electronics in the prototype (see pics) only the per-production front cover, game background, and simulation play screen.  The buttons and screen are hot glued into place by Tiger to be taken out and promoted.  This game was taken to the showroom in the Toy Building in New York City for the launch of Magic Johnson's game, which he attended and signed the game at the launch.  Magic Johnson is shown in the Monday, February 10, 1992 edition of the New York Times (#48,872) being named MVP of the 1992 NBA All Star Game.  This happened within days of the signing of this Tiger Electronics game.

Very cool for both video game collectors and sports memorabilia collectors alike!

A hi-res picture of the letter and autograph are presented above.  The letter is easily readable from the picture when you enlarge it, but I will also include the body of the letter below:

"In February 1992 I was the National Sales Manager for Tiger Electronics.  In 1992 we introduced our "Magic Johnson Hand Held Basketball" game.  Magic came to our showroom in the Toy Building in NYC to help us with the "launch" of his licensed game.  He then proceed to autograph a one of a kind non-working prototype of his game.  In addition, he autographed a Jersey (game/non-worn) and a Basketball."  Signed by M. Brad Slavin - Former National Sales Manager of Tiger Electronics

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
