sonic cd pal with spine card
check this out with spine card
i have never new about this until now
How common are spine cards with PAL Mega CD games? I don't think I've ever seen one before this auction (I've even got a couple of games new and they didn't have spine cards).
the guy is asking way too much cash for that game but i see things have gone boxed sega consoles have shot up in price
heres a website that has pictures of spine cards for other games

Yes, all PAL Mega CD games had spine cards. Quite an interesting move to say the least. I wonder why Sega decided to use them? I mean, I can't think of any other item CD based sold in the UK that had a spine card apart from Japanese imports.
In Portugal not a single game came with a spine card.
By law all games sold in Portugal must have a portuguese instruction manual, so that means the main Sega distributor had to open every single game to put a portuguese manual inside so all the spines were removed and destroyed in that process...
The only ones I ever got with spines came from abroad or were "illegal" european imports
I guess they were just keeping up the Japanese style of publishing CD-games as the Mega CD was the first CD-based console in the West and nobody experienced the uselessness of spines over here before.

I've seen more copies of Sonic CD with the spine card than I have big box versions of the PC port.
