In the US the cart and manual were tucked in with the rest of the packaging. The display boxes were used on the shelves at Blockbuster and a few game stores. That's why most of them are either faded from the sun or have stickers on them.

To clarify further, the actual game data are the same but they have different labels and boxes.

OK, this all makes sense...
except for one thing that just came to mind.

Since as others have confirmed, that the U.S. version of 'Mario's Tennis' was never sold separately,
and furthermore, that the only U.S. version of the box was the display box, I have the following question:

I would assume, that since I believe that Japan does not seem to follow the practice of factory sealing games, that a factory sealed copy of either region of 'Mario's Tennis' does not exist, correct?

Correct... there aren't any factory sealed boxed Mario's Tennis', in either region.

I am not going to pretend that this is authentic, but it is worth showing. I would imagine that it was done by Blockbuster for the purpose of display, a looong time ago- before it would have been worth selling as rare or sealed. Strange thing is, it has a game inside.

Since the value was so low, some blockbusters shrinkwrapped the used VB games and sold the "loaded" product on the shelf. (I mean, it was only like $1.99)

I've seen multiple sealed used copies with the blockbuster stickers on the shrinkwrap.
