    Default rarest Zelda item ever??

    probably you won't see this again, limited edition ost to 5,000 in Japan only (preorders only, sold out in 1998), here's the link to auction:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=4786636090

    and rest of authentic items from Japan, Xenogears Limited Edition, Soul Calibur 2 ArtBook, and lots of other things:

    There are several harder to find US Zelda collectables.

    Zelda prototype cartridge
    Zelda yellow test cart
    Zelda Wind Walker promotional scroll (not the wall scroll)
    Zelda Majora's Mask contest prize from Nintendo power

    True, but i think the seller is refering to items you could buy.
    Good luck with your auctions

    I didn't realize it was her auction.

    And you can buy anyone of those items I listed if you have the cash.

    This wasn't but a week or so ago. Is missing the box,leather strap and paper which came with still very hard to find. I'd say less than 100 maybee less than 50 made.

    I suspect shill bidding to raise the price then he tried to do a second chance offer after the auction was over.

    I think they mean buy, from a shop, at the time, using money. As opposed to now. You can buy anything now if you find someone selling it.

    Could you have walked into a shop and bought (at the time) or pre-ordered any of the four items you listed?

    One time, we were all out drinking celebrating a friend's birthday party. It was a long night, and there were a lot of drinks. Turns out it was the owner of the bar's birthday so drinks were 2-for-1 to celebrate.

    Needless to say, we were quite tanked. So on the way home (we were walking) I fell into a set of bushes. I was quite annoyed, so I ripped the bush out of the ground and tossed it in the street. Imagine my surprise when I looked into the hole and found a piece of heart!

    I know there have to be another 3 at least out there in the world, and I have looked for one ever since. I heard rumours of one on ebay, but never found any other mention.

    So, I offer my piece of heart as the rarest Zelda item ever. There's only 4 known of in the world!

    I had a girlfriend once. I was only young, and she was like a princess.

    Anyway's, one day at the beach, we were making sandcastles. There was a Punch & Judy show; Some donkey's; And a magician... ~ I got bored of building my castle, and after a few minutes of hacking at some shrubbery with a stick I found, I decided to go visit her castle...

    But as I got there I saw her being picked up by the magician and whisked away on one of the donkey's... Oh noes! I gave chase, but the magician on the donkey was too fast. My girlfriend threw something from the back of the animal and it landed in the sand in front of me... I picked it up "What have I here?" ~ Ooh, a shield made out of wood bearing some sort of golden triangular shape on the front.


    So, I offer you my shield shaped piece of driftwood as being the rarest Zelda item ever


    **Disclaimer: Events mentioned above may or may not have actually happened in real life, and may have just been made up by me on the spot. Highly unlikely, but possible.

    I once splatted a spider on my bathroom wall and it spat out a ruby!

    The very same day, I was cutting the grass (With a sword of all things ~ We keep it for doing such mediocre tasks) and I found a whole load of items just lying there on the ground ~ A load of priceless gems; Some magic powder; And a gigantic mushroom which I intend to take to the old lady down the road so she can mix it into something more useful...


    I also have a hat I obtained which sometimes talks to me... Sometimes I put it on, and I feel so small...

    Well thats were the meaning RAREST ZELDA ITEM come from.

    I mean if you are going to go out there and call your item
    rarest Zelda item ever??
    and
    one of a kind
    then you should be able to back it up.

    Truth be told though, you can walk into one of my stores and make me a crazy offer. I'd be happy to sell one or more of those items I listed.

    <-- Read what's under my username... That, in all likelyhood (with the possible exception of aforementioned wall scroll), is the rarest Zelda item ever. Yes, it's in my possession, and yes, it came out of that massive Zelda collection I bought a few months back.

    Wanted: Any and all Dragon Quest, Lufia/Estpolis, Tales of series, and NIS games, strategy guides, and miscellaneous items. Will pay $$$ or trade well for items I don't already have.

    I can agree with you as far as "one of the rarest" is concerned. BTW...I find myself digging that brand-new 64DD...but no $750 to spend :/ ...

    Princess Isabela:

    Buyatari is right, 5,000 items is actually a LOT compared to the other items he listed. Sure, yours is pretty difficult to find, but to say it will "never come up again?" That's impossible. There are a few hundred Zelda NES Test Carts (why anyone wants that is beyond me), and the scroll and so far only ONE of the NES Prototype Legend of Zeldas has come up....ONE is much better than 5,000 in terms of rarity I would say :P
