 I'm trying to get a shipping estimate and my scale is broken. And placing one cart on a bathroom scale doesn't accomplish much.

Does anyone know the answer or is anyone able to check?

It shouldn't matter too much if the black sleeve is weighed too.

I just know that a single cart costs exactly $2.01 to mail from the US to Canada.

They vary by an oz or 2, I'd put 6 and you should be fine.

My experience is that when you got it in a bubble bag with a dust cover you will get by with most on 5oz, but 6oz will cover any cart I've tried so far. If you remove the dust cover remove an oz.

the weight of the nes cart is just about 4oz. + anything else you use (packaging)

now for a zelda cart = 4.5oz

Big board games with batteries are 5oz or just big board like MMC5 titles (or pirate multicarts due to all the chips.)

The ones with the Famicom converter (early copies of Gyromite) are about half an ounce, maybe a full ounce heavier than the norm.
