    Smile Mario Kart 64 Soundtrack?

    Found a very nice and clean Mario Kart 64 cd today. Just wondering what these usually go for. I was looking around Ebay and could not find this one. Did see others like Super Mario World, Mario Galaxy, Zelda's, etc, etc. The thing is they have crazy prices from 149.99- 499.99. Really? Do they actually sell at that price? Any help would be great.

    First of all, you can't trust eBay with soundtracks. 90% (if not more) of the soundtracks on there are bootlegs, and of the few sellers that have legit stuff, some of them price them at absurd prices.

    The Super Mario World soundtrack is pretty expensive, as is Legend of Zelda: Sound & Drama, which I assume you're talking about. The Mario Galaxy isn't remotely close to being as expensive as the price range you listed, but the Platinum version does command a premium.

    Anyway, those soundtracks are all Japanese, and Japanese Nintendo soundtracks often have pretty small print runs. Many of the older ones (read: Super Famicom era) for the highly desirable titles are expensive.

    What I assume you're talking about is a US-released soundtrack, most of which really aren't worth that much, especially the post-SNES ones. I wouldn't expect much for it, maybe 20-30 at the absolute tops, but I'd question even that much. I don't think the Japanese version has much demand, and I don't think the US releases even have the full soundtrack.

    $30 sounds about right, though it really depends on the title in question. Something like the US soundtrack release of Majora's Mask or Paper Mario can go for a bit more.

    There were two Mario Kart 64 releases... there was the "Best of" release with Race Tracks that was available at stores like Babbages (where I got mine) and a more complete Nintendo Power release thru the Power Catalog.
