Ran across while doing a price check on some Tiger LCD games.

A prototype of the 1992 Magic Johnson's Basketball Tiger LCD Game. The listing sold through Aug 08, 2012 for $499.99. According to the listing this pre-production handheld was autographed by Magic Johnson at a event for the games launch. This promotional copy of the game lacked any working electronics and was just a empty shell with the art and buttons glued into place.

Looking at it I gotta say that I actually prefer this prototype versions art work to what made it into the final production run. Though I like how they changed the buttons to match the Lakers purple and gold in the retail handheld.

From the listing:

Prototype of the 1992 Magic Johnson's Basketball Handheld Video Game. As you can see in the pictures there are no labels above the center 4 buttons that there would be on a production model, or any copyright information printed on the bottom of the cover under the 4 center buttons.

There are no electronics in the prototype (see pics) only the per-production front cover, game background, and simulation play screen. The buttons and screen are hot glued into place by Tiger to be taken out and promoted. This game was taken to the showroom in the Toy Building in New York City for the launch of Magic Johnson's game, which he attended and signed the game at the launch. Magic Johnson is shown in the Monday, February 10, 1992 edition of the New York Times (#48,872) being named MVP of the 1992 NBA All Star Game. This happened within days of the signing of this Tiger Electronics game.

MC Hammer Tiger LCD Game

M.C. Hammer was hot from the late 1980s until the mid 1990s. Performing hit songs like " U Can't Touch This " and even a Saturday morning cartoon called Hammer Man. During the peak of his fame in 1991 Hammer even got his own Tiger LCD Handheld game. A blog post or two pop up around the internet regarding this game when a copy goes up on ebay. Last one that I can see listed on ebay was a new in box copy that had a starting bid at $129.00. The auction ended without getting a bids.

Baseball All Stars Tiger LCD Handheld Game Talk from 1990

Baseball All Stars - Tiger Electronics Handheld

Overview:
This 1990 LCD hand held was made by Tiger Electronics and is a officially licensed Major League Baseball game. With the MLB license came the real All Star team rosters, player uniform numbers and basic stats from the 1989 season. The stats only consist of earned run average for pitchers and batting average for hitters. It should also be noted that during the team selection part of starting a new game there is the option of tweaking the starting line up of your all star squad. The sub feature allows you to move players around in the batting order or bench them for one of the reserves.

I don't have the manual for this game so I'm not sure if the stats factor in at all with your little LCD players in game performance. Such as a slugger being more prone to hit a home run then the reserve pitcher you subbed into the cleanup position.
