Sealed Game of SUPER MARIO BROS. Recently Sold for Six Figures


Video game collectors like to spend a lot. After all, three recently teamed up to buy an original copy of Super Mario Bros. for the NES at the price of $100,150. I still cry a little when I have to pay $60 for a new video game, but paying six figures for a video game is insane. So, what made this game so special? It was “sticker sealed” rather of using shrink wrap, and only a few of these are available in the wild. Also, it was preserved in immaculate condition. Kenneth Thrower from Wata Games explains:

“Not only are all of NES sticker sealed game’ extremely rare, but by their nature of not being sealed in shrink wrap they usually exhibit significant wear after more than 30 years. [T]his game may be the condition census of all sticker sealed NES games known to exist.”

The three new owners are Jim Halperin of Heritage Auctions, Rich Lecce, and Zac Gieg.
