  • To confirm the purchase to their customers, Club Nintendo sent a white and blue certificate ahead of the delivery of the prize. This one mentions the “Hot Mario Campaign”, which is a promotion of the early Club Nintendo, so it is unique to the Club Nintendo controller. This certificate was often lost, and so a full set is hard to come by. See the certificate with its translation provided by Shairn below.
