OK...how did this happen?!?!  How did a copy of Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo Entertainment System sell for $100,150...the highest priced video game ever?  I mean...you can buy this old classic cartridge game for a few bucks at a local GameStop!

Here it is:

So how did this happen?

  1. It's a first-run copy.
  2. It's sealed.
  3. It's in near-perfect condition.
  4. It's one of the earliest known copies of the game.
  5. It's from 1985's NES "test launch" that took place in New York and Los Angeles.
  6. It's not sealed with shrink wrap: it's sealed with a small sticker.
  7. There are probably only a few dozen of this type in existance.

Even more mind-blowing: experts believe this could be worth $1 million soon!
