Original Post

Hey everyone,
A local collector friend of mine recently got a steal on a CIB Mario’s Tennis on FB Marketplace (around $50 shipped).
It came, and it is legit. However, there is one thing I was curious about.
Inside the box was a cart baggie. I have never seen another one of these with one.
This makes me wonder if they came sealed like other VB games, or maybe not, I just know I’ve never seen one with the cart baggie. This also came from the original owner and not from a reseller or anyone who could have added the bag etc to make it more enticing.

Are you talking about the US or Japanese version of Mario’s Tennis? The US version was never sold in a box, because it was the pack-in title when you bought the system. Nintendo did print a limited number of Mario’s Tennis boxes (without any inserts), but they were strictly for store display purposes at places like GameStop. So if your friend got a “CIB” US Mario’s Tennis, it’s because someone got a demo box, and put a cart in it. As for a baggie around the cart, I believe that every US (and Japanese) game came from the factory that way.
