Virtual Boy VidPro Card Collection

My VidPro card collection has grown a bit since the last time I spoke of them. About a year ago, or so, I made a thread called "Interesting Galactic Pinball VidPro Insert Card", where I talked about how different this card was when compared to the other VB VidPro cards we were familiar with. Here, I would like to start-off with this one, as it just may be a very early representation (pre-production) of what all the VB VidPro cards looked like at one point in time.

Next up is a Mario Clash insert card. This one is very interesting as well, since it seems to be half way to its final design. This card has a normal front-side but shares the same early design on the back of it like the above Galactic Pinball card, and like the Galactic Pinball card, it also has a different game play image that differs from the retail version of the game.

It's missing the model number above the barcode too.

I now own two Panic Bomber cards. These are more like the VB VidPro cards we're familiar with.

oh yeah....I FOUND THE F***IN' DRAGON HOPPER CARD!!!!!!!!

What can I say about this one, it's the Dragon Hopper VidPro card...

The only thing about this card that makes it different than the rest, are the numbers printed along the bottom white border. I'm not sure what all the numbers mean, but I'm pretty sure that the "0896" was its supposed release date.

So... What do you all think? Crazy shtuff, right?!

Wow, that's awesome. It's always nice to spot the differences and so on, but this last card... no words.

Well I guess that's the end of PVB using my box art for the cover.

On a lighter note (sorry for the double post I got timed out) it's great to see that Dragon Hopper actually came close to getting released? who knows maybe that will get us that much closer to getting a copy of the game.

Hm? We never did. The image that's currently being used on the game profile page is from the old, low-res scan of that VidPro card we had for years.
