see that "google custom search" box up in the top right corner? I use that a lot to find stuff that people have buried in the B/S/T forum. I got big-time lucky today! 8)

Ah, smart man. I figured that you got lucky at a store or a garage sale.

Yay no hotlinking.

Looking at the link code, yeah, that might be the same image I found a few years ago. I only have carts with the adapter and without slapping both kinds on a scanner during the same scan, something might auto adjust and ruin a comparison.

It's pretty hard to tell, but the printing of the purple on the label is a little different color too. I have 2 adapter Gyromite carts, but no normal one and I can't remember which type is more blue and which more purple. It's hard to tell though.

Without opening the cart? Ziggy or Hobie can you post comparison pics?

Edit
Found this:

I could try and get a comparison picture of the label for you. Also, I'll try and get a good comparison of the pins, too. But be warned, my camera sucks, so I make no promises. Hopefully I'll be able to scan the labels nicely though.
