Rare Finds: Not ONE But THREE Syphon Filter 3 911 Alt Cover Listings

Link here. We're back with another cool treasure. This time, we found not one but a whopping THREE alt covers for the final Syphon Filter game for the Playstation 1, Syphon Filter 3.

The Blockbuster Video Game section in my store was near the front of the store, tucked in a corner near the register. Read more...
