    Default 72 Pin NES Connectors (OEM Part...NOT aftermarket)

    I recently bought out a couple of Nintendo repair centers and I have acquired a TON of parts. Among them were several 72 pin connectors. These are NOT aftermarket, but genuine Nintendo replacement parts. So, they are "ZIF." It doesn't feel like you are pulling a tree out of the ground when you take a cart out of the console. Also, these are NEW...still wrapped in the pink foam...and NOT restored or cleaned. I already replaced the connectors in two of my NES consoles and they work perfectly. I was wondering how much interest there would be in these and how much they would be worth roughly? Thanks for the help.

    The main reason I posted is that all the ones on ebay are aftermarket...mostly by MCM I think (someone please correct that if I'm wrong). The aftermarket ones have a really high failure rate and also extremely high pin tension...i.e. it's very hard to insert a cart and even tougher to pull it out. These are "ZIF," just like what came in the NES when it was new. I've just never seen anyone selling OEM ones on ebay. Do a search on the forums for NES connectors and check out some of the topic discussions.

    Some good info in this post....

    I don't think they would be worth much more than the MCM ones, mainly because even though the MCM ones have a vice grip on the cart, they still work perfectly.

    Although, I am interested in one if you end up buying them.

    Read around, the MCM connectors are truly shitty.

    Well... I have 2 NES and they both have new 72 pins in them. The one in my NES works perfectly, I have never had a game not work. It also feels exactly like a original 72 pin would. My other NES works 100% just like mine, except that it is hard to get the cart in and out of the machine. It has an extremely hard grip on the cart to say the least. I'm not sure however if mine are MCM or not (I forget), but they are far from shitty.

    If you call the nintendo 800 number they will send you a 72 pin connector FOR FREE.

    Default 800 number offers nothing

    Well, I called the Nintendo 800 number, 800-255-3700. Due to the age of the SNES and NES, blah blah blah. They offer no parts. Bummer

    Did a price for the oem 72 pins get settled on? If its not too much I might bite?
