    Hang on, the back of NES cartridges says "Do not clean with benzene, thinner, alcohol or other solvents". But you're using alcohol right here!

    I just leave the stickers and stuff on. It gives the cart history and character. Besides I'm too lazy to do all that restoration.

    Usually find your videos to have good advice, but there are some TERRIBLE practices being suggested here.
    NEVER ink the label with sharpie. You’re better off leaving it white/torn in places. Sharpie might look good in the video but it won’t in person. Genuine wear is always better than terrible touch-up.
    Also never use super glue to attatch the label. Get some proper adhesive backed printer paper. In the future if the label has to be replaced again, the only way to remove the super glue will be to damage the cartridge. (Acetone will melt the plastic and petroleum based CA removers will cause unpredictable surface damage).
    Also put the tape on the label BEFORE puting it on the cartridge. Don’t use a box cutter on your cartridge.
    This is seriously some amateur stuff here.

    So if I'm having trouble with a n64 game it could be from 10 year old me spilling milk on my cartridge, buying a screwdriver right now

    Colours on the label artwork will smudge eventually if pushed hard enough and long enough with any cleaning fluid. Very careful with this. And modifying labels is a big no no. I feel being applied just 'for your own collection' can quickly change to 'fuck it i'll go make $200 on this now'. Not everyone likes to make it blatantly obvious its a repro.

    Back in the nineteen hundreds, we used non gloss label paper and packing tape to make our custom graffiti stickers.

    Worth the watch! I was having trouble with my Pokemon Stadium 2 game and was about to throw it out. But I'm so glad I saw this video instead!
    But question, the N64 cartridges behind you in the video have sticker labels on top. Where did you get those or did you print them out?
    Hope you reach out.

    Thanks again

    There are some silver blockbuster stickers on some n64 games that, when removed, leave the word void all over the back of your cartridge. It just rubs off though.

    If there’s one thing that I learned watching this video, it’s that game stores are not very nice to N64 sports games
