Rare Nintendo e-Reader Oddities | The Uncommon Valley

The Nintendo e-Reader, stylized as ereader, commonly abbreviated as e-Reader, known in Japan as the Card-e-Reader[a], is an add-on manufactured by Nintendo for its Game Boy Advance handheld video game console. It was released in Japan in December 2001, with a North American release following in September 2002. It has an LED scanner that reads “e-Reader cards”, paper cards with specially encoded data printed on them.

On this edition of The Uncommon Valley, we look at 3 individual cards that are highly sought after in the E-Reader card collecting scene, and cover over the separate histories of these cards and why they are hard to find out in the wild.
