Impersonate a 1990s Nintendo employee

GameSniped has a roundup of one eBay seller's truly bizarre Nintendo employee items -- not just the usual retail demo units, but stuff like pins awarded for 1, 2, and 3 years of service, and, well, this hat. We can't say enough about the hat.

We'd look like huge nerds wearing a hat like that (being non-cowboys/farmers/people who see sunlight), and Nintendo-logo-emblazoned hats are nerdy as a rule, so this beautiful piece of haberdashery, swag from Nintendo's 1996 semi-annual company meeting in Nashville, is a nexus of nerdity.

Okay, there are actually a lot of retail demo units, too, and a neat Nintendo Power display stand. We've been jaded by the Internet if we have allowed ourselves to stop being impressed by the availability of old store demo systems on eBay.

I really like the two foot tall Game Boy Color store display. It's a shame it's all pretty expensive. I'd love some of this stuff.

I want the coat. My mates would too, but I'm the only one out of us with a job and I can't afford it :(

I want the display stand for Nintendo Power. I'm always whining I need a way to better organize my NP's.
