Hello all! More black box goodness for you!
There were some really hardcore auctions of NEW OLD STOCK nes stuff in December.
First is this one, 3 BRAND NEW NES GAMES ICE CLIMBER NES +Balloon Fight + MARIO BLACK BOX, the description just totally BLOWS HARD. LOL. Just read it. It’s priceless:
I NO VERY LITTLE ABOUT GAMES,MY DAD WAS A COLLECTOR BACK IN THE DAY, THEY WAS RECENTLY FOR SALE, FOR $35.00 EACH AT MY YARD SALE LAST WEEK ,BUT TWO MEN WAS VERY HEATED OVER WHO SEEN IT FIRST, THEY WAS OFFERING $500 ,$600 THE OTHER MAN OFFER $1500. THATS WHAT MADE ME DECIDE TO KEEP THEM ,I SEEN 1 OF THE GAMES I HAVE ON EBAY FOR $10,000 SO I SAID I’LL SELL ALL THREE FOR $10,000
EPICNESS here. He found it at yard sale… I just love this kind of stuff so much. Like when that woman found Stadium Events in a wardrobe junk…. so these three really mint rare games sold for 11211$. Not bad for a 35$ investement.. LOL
Next is a seller with the actual NOS stuff. He auctioned many many top games.
Prices were mind-blowing. The first that i really liked was Donkey Kong 3 Arcade Classics. Sold for 5355,50$ .
Mario Bros. Arcade Classics for 5480$! Finally i see some real VALUE of mint black box stuff. Like i said in previous posts, black boxes became kinda common with the whole grading madness, but still they are holding the value. And even growing.
Super Mario Bros. here for 1300$. Now that’s about real for such a gem.
And lastly the game which i really liked when i was a kid, Gun Smoke. A lot of memories with this one. I actually made it to the last boss but never beat him. Maybe when i get old i’ll try again lol. More interesting to find out that there were some “variants” of this game.
Jesus Christ Capcom. How drunk are your artists? The cover art is not nearly as Mega Man, but seriously… WTF. I think this is the first run of this game. It has the word “BAR” in the artwork, so I think Nintendo told them to change it. Either that or someone at capcom actually saw it and was like, “wtf”. Very rare, great condition, good luck!
The ending price was astronomical 1675$. Seller had some more games as well, but they were less significant.
