Sonic the Hedgehog 2 signed by Yuji Naka


Recommended Posts

There's no real way to say- the game itself has very little value, Sonic 2 is quite common- and gaming autographs just aren't something you find for sale terribly often. The auction noted in the listing was for a limited 10th anniversary dreamcast system, complete in box- which adds a fair bit more value than a common Genny cart.


Having spent much of my convention time over the years at autograph sessions, I can tell you right now- there's no telling what demand is. Most of the people getting autographs (at least at my cons) are more interested in their 30 seconds of face time than the actual signature. I know I'm not willing to just buy a signature if it's going to add any significant cost. If you want to go by a 'cheapest way to get about the same thing today' kind of thing, there's a signed copy of Sonic Heroes with a buy it now of $200 up right now. Aside from that... it's worth what someone wants to pay for it.

The autograph was done with black permanent marker by Yuji Naka. This game belonged to a producer in Hollywood who died and this game was then sold at an estate sale in Hollywood many years ago. I acquired this recently and while I am a collector, I know there is someone out there who wants this thing more than I do. In 2012 a signature like this sold for $2499 on eBay! No reserve! Send me any questions, thanks.


I realize the seller has other listings for prototypes and such, so clearly is a collector. I'm leery for the bit about the estate sale. I've seen a ton of these on Ebay lately, coming from places in Minnesota or Main or whatever far, far away from Cali. Those other listings I think were auto-penned, and this could be as well.


However, without any documentation, this is my take with autographs..... Ask yourself, how much would I be willing to spend, if it turns out to be fake, and still not have a nervous breakdown? If you feel like you can throw $60 into the trash, then bid $60. Do NOT bid $600 because you think that's what it's worth.
