Own a piece of 8 bit-era art in the form of these recycled NES cartridges

Sometimes you just can't help but to pine for the "good ol' days" of video games. You know, back when mankind murdered trees by the hundred just so you could read that 50-page manual and learn how to jump with the A button (MMM that smell). The days when ROMs came packed in a convenient plastic cartridge that doubled as a family-sized coaster. And we certainly all experienced the utter joy of blowing into said cartridges with all of our might just so they would work at all. The good ol' days, indeed (3DS, Arcade, Culture, GameCube, Industry, Next-Gen, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, Retro, Wii, Wii U, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Blowing into cartridges. No one ever told us to, we did it instictively. Weird.
