In all those years i have seen in Yahoo few copies of each one:

Nemesis 2 maybe 3-4 copies
Salamander maybe 4
MG2 sample only 2
Multiplayer only the one i own

Some additions from what I have seen:

Nemesis 2 and Salamander, around in same numbers. But for Salamander I have seen once an Japanese auction which contained about 10 pieces new old stock cart labels for this black version. After or before that I haven't seen those labels sold by anyone, nor more "black" labeled Salamanders appearing suddenly in numbers on the market. This was already few years ago and I guess some collector bought those labels and put on shelf.

MG2 sample 4 pieces. Three with labels and one of them was sold without label. The seller had a minimal description saying that it's maybe some Konami MG2 advertising cartridge + normal line of no quarantee/return. And only one picture from black cart.

Multiplayer cable - so far only one complete set. At least three boxes without cable/carton insert are around.

I would estimate that at least some more of each are existing, there are collectors, forgotten storage boxes and stocks we don't know about...

Saku,
The other 3 had the same "Sample" label as in the eskroto´s auction? If I´m right I remember to see one with the same label as MG2 "complete game" cart.

All the MG2 samples i have seen had that type of label
"Older" games like Knightmare, Penguin, Monkey Academy, even Nemesis 2 and Salamander had a different type of label which is the most usual.
It seems that for later games the label for samples was changed, i think that Pennant Race 2 and Quarth have the same type of label than MG2, and iirc i think i saw a sample of Snatcher sound cartridge that some lucky guy found in a street market in South Korea. it had the same type of label.

You’ll have to come down quite a bit more for people to buy, imho.
