A copy of Super Mario Bros. for the NES in near-perfect condition was auctioned for $ 660,000. Of these, the owner of the lot, for which 13 participants fought, received 550,000 dollars. This copy was one of the first games to go on sale in the United States in new packaging for that time – covered in the film. Note that collectors have 11 different packaging options for Super Mario Bros.
The copy sold at auction dates from the end of 1986. It was allegedly bought as a Christmas present and had been lying unopened in a drawer the whole time.
“I never thought about him,” said the salesperson, who asked to remain anonymous.
In March last year, we told you that the Nintendo PlayStation console prototype was sold for 360,000 dollars.
