    Bought a cabinet, bootleg cart?

    Hey Everyone,

    I bought a 2 slot gold cabinet from a local pizza shop that is in rough shape. Paid $200 for it.

    Anyway there were 3 carts with it, 2 look legit, not sure about the 3rd one.

    WORLD HEROES - has label and serial sticker

    BLUES JOURNEY - has label and serial sticker

    BUST A MOVE AGAIN - no label, gold label with japanese writing, and some writing on the white arrow

    Not super concerned if it is, just wondering. Didn't buy the cabinet for the carts.

    Thanks

    $200 for a Goldie is a sweet deal.

    I can't view the images, but label is never a sole indicator of authenticity. You need to open the carts and compare to mvs scans: http://www.mvs-scans.com/index.php/Main_Page

    As far as I know the BAMA carts are usually Blue, open the cart and let's look at the boards.

    Congrats on the great deal, Goldies are so awesome, I have one myself.

    I was thinking we'd analyse the wavelengths of light reflecting off the plastic cases and we'll be able to determine if they're bootlegs or not.

    Opened them up and compared to http://www.mvs-scans.com.

    World Heroes and Blue's Journey are legit.

    Bust a Move Again has SNK marked circuit boards, but the memory chips all have windows on them.

    Thanks
