    Only missing thing is the inlay.

    The big question: To keep or to sell?

    As a gamer, don't sell it. It is a remembrance of your childhood :)

    I once had the chance to get a micro with NES faceplate for $10USD. I regret not buying it. I miss my launch GBA. Keep it, lest you get gamers remorse later when you want to take a trip down memory lane.

    Man, I'd kill someone to get my hands on that. Really cool handheld. Keep that sucker safe, they tend to go upwards of $300!

    I would have sold it too. Collectible yes, but not much fun to play on. Try to find an AGS-101. You won't regret it. I've got 2 (but my daughter will end up taking one from me someday) and they will never be for sale.

    AGS-101 goes for ~$40 around Ebay, and it sure isn't hard getting one as of now. There was one for Limited Edition Zelda, and it was pretty much the same concept. The seller was selling it for $300. I'm sure you can sell it around that price or maybe even more. I myself have a Launch Blue GBA SP, I'm keeping that, the brightness is pretty low. I'm wondering how I played with that all those years ago. I might go hunting for a AGS-101, if I really wanted one.

    the crappy colors go for that much and are usually are scratched up and in generally terrible condition, the desirable colors in good condition go upwards of $80-100

    I myself have a ags-101 in a onyx black 001 shell with all the black buttons from the graphite 101 shell

    Well wouldn't it be more better to just get a ~$40 one, and then get a new housing with your desired color for it? I'm sure you can get a housing for $1-5

    Man if I were you I'd hold into that, super collectible, if not I would so buy it from you.
