Again Super Mario Bros. is back in the news in terms of the prices that their games have reached at auction, which this time it is not exactly little. Until last November 2020 the game had the record, that was when Super Mario Bros. 3 snatched it away, but now that same most expensive matching record has returned to your hands again.
As we see in the Heritage auction website, the newly sold game had a rating of 9.6 A + per Wata, but also the cartridge just auctioned has other characteristics. On the website they report that they have already sold other copies for huge amounts, but not of this type, since It is the oldest sealed copy of the game they have offered; with a cardboard tag to hang.
“This is only the fourth version of Super Mario Bros. to be produced, and its production run was relatively short. To get an idea of this, the console was released in mid-1986 and the black box games distributed at that release did not have the ‘Game Pak NES-GP’ code.“, it reads in the description by Heritage.
“It is worth mentioning that Nintendo added its trademark symbol of its Nintendo Entertainment System to its boxes in early 1987. That doesn’t leave much space between the two for them to be manufactured.“, they ended up saying. At the moment, we do not know the identity of the buyer, only that has paid $ 660,000 (€ 561,000 at change).
What is clear is that, if we already saw quite high amounts in game sales and auctions with prices that were rising, now half a million dollars has been exceeded for a sealed game.
