(money is of no concern)
is there any other evidence a part from the seller of where this came from. great findOdinWolf wrote:I have obtained the same controller, but it hasn't been signed. How much did you pay for yours? Here's a picture, by the way:
Here is a quote from the eBay auction:
"The really interesting thing about this item is that the controller I am including is a GOLD LIMITED EDITION model, that was only available for winning a Starfox 64 contest at the E3 show (which is how I got this one)."
This is an interesting tidbit of information not previously mentioned in your post. Maybe this will help with the year of E3? I have contacted the seller for further information.
The really lucky part was that this controller was never mentioned in the title of the sale, but only in the body. I was able to buy just the controller for a certain ammount and I gave the seller a grey controller (oddly enough). I think I may have gotten an absolute steal. I am looking up more info on this controller. I may decide to sell or trade it at some point, since I am more of a console collector.

Included in the auction are four gold and black N64 controllers (won during a Star Fox tournament) signed by legendary developer Shigeru Miyamoto and ex-Nintendo president Minoru Arakawa.
It's tough... I can't really make it out due to the small resolution of the picture.lithium017 wrote:Hmm...looking at that post with the 4 gold/black controllers signed by Miyamoto, you can't really see that N64 logo on the controllers can you?
