Rub it in ;-)
It's pretty strange that some games are this rare. I know that there where over 1 million Nemesis1's sold, and Metal Gear2 is not rare also, which is not strange because it's very good.
But why would Magical Tree, time pilot and Pippols be very rare.
Cabbage patch and Synthesizer are not great, so that does explain the rarety.

I guess for the earlier games sales numbers must not have been that great and I doubt most had more than one batch. Today we care about boxes and stuff like that, but I suspect that at the time most cardboxes and manuals went straight to the trash.

Yeah that's probably true. And maybe the games that where good, where also used a lot more and therefore got damaged more.

Not only that, we are talking Japan here, they have limited space for about everything and frequently old things, broken or not (or even new stuff) is simply discarted. At some point before things were collectable, they were just trash to them. Today I know they have some regulations to throw things out, you actually have to pay to do so, but I figure 20-30 years ago that was not the case and many things we value today are simply gone.
