Black-label SG-1000 Mark I
Post Posted: Mon Sep 17, 2007 5:14 pm
I've seen these black (rather than blue) labelled units in early promo shots, but can't remember seeing one offered for sale before...

Anyone know the score on these? Are they first-run systems? (If so, that can't be the original box, can it?)

To me it looks like sunfading but I can't be sure.

Don't think so - the separate yellow/red lines below the Sega logo are quite distinct, whereas the "normal" Mark 1 just has a single red line.

Also, it looks just like the unit shown on the SegaFreaks SG-1000 card (attached).

You are right. Should have reacted a bit earlier..
I haven't been following SG-1000 subtle variations in details so I have no idea if those showed up before. Will look closely on future anctions.

well I guess it is a strange discission for Sega to use the German flag on the front of it's console.

I have one black label SG-1000.
It was a lucky find on JP yahoo a couple years ago.
