    The gray label one has a gray label. The yellow label one has a yellow label.

    Gray label is the original release, the yellow is the re-release (Player's Choice).

    I always wondered - which one is supposed to be more common?

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    1st, I made a mistake. Player's Choice was/is used on SNES/N64/GC/Wii games. For the NES, Nintendo used "Classic Series" for re-releases.

    2nd, as I understand, most of the Classic Series re-releases are rarer than their original counterparts. Prices seem to favor the originals though, especially with Zelda/Zelda II, which I imagine is because of the lack of gold paint on the re-release :/

    In my personal experience, the Yellow one is much less common. In 5 years of buying lots and selling extras I don't need, I've only had 2 Yellows in my hands and probably a couple dozen grays. Not that that is scientific or anything...

    The Wii rerelease program is titled "Nintendo Selects".
