    Default WTB Carts with dead back-up batteries

    Looking for NES, SNES, or Genesis carts with dead back-up batteries in them. Need to be in good condition, and need to work aside from the battery back up issue.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    EDIT: should have been more specific about this. I am just interested in commons right now, and no sports games. I want to play around with installing coin battery holders in the carts instead of the way they come installed from the factory, but I don't really want sports game because it isn't really worth it to extend their lives.

    I probably have a bunch. But why would you want them? As far as I know they are worth the same amount. It's not very difficult to replace the battery. Anything specific you are looking for?

    Sorry I don't want to have to pay shipping from Canada, and I am not going to pay as much for a cart with a dead battery. Not saying I want them for a buck a piece or anything, but basically I am looking for someone who has some dead-battery carts who either doesn't know how to or doesn't want to replace the batteries and is willing to sell the carts a little bit cheaper.

    No problem. Shipping from Canda will probably cost the same if not less than shipping from the US. It's a weird system they use up here. I thought maybe you wanted them to make reproductions or something nifty like that. I was going to suggest a bunch of cheap games for such a purpose.

    I'm sure you can get some genny sports games WORKING for LESS then a buck a piece.
