This extremely rare and unique N64 controller was signed by Shigeru Miyamoto (top), Minoru Arakawa (middle) and Howard Lincoln (bottom) at one of the E3 shows, most likely in 1997 (although the date is uncertain). It was sold on eBay some years ago and this is the only photo of it that I've ever seen.

The history of the controller is unclear but sources indicate that the original eBay sellers sister had been working for Nintendo America for 15 years, and that she got this signed at E3 and had given it to her brother (the seller) afterwards.

The most unique aspect of the controller (apart from the three signatures, which must be extremely rare to see on one item) is the gold N64 logo :n64: in the centre. It's speculated that the controller was made especially for E3 and/or Nintendo Employees, making it extremely... no, excruciatingly rare! :-/ >_< I've never seen anything like it available commercially and I doubt that it was ever available to anyone except Nintendo employees.

I don't own this and I'm afraid I don't have any other information on it other than what you've just read. But, just look at it.... it's beautiful! :wub: :wub: :wub:
