Sealed copy of ‘Super Mario Bros.’ auctioned for a record $114,000

A fixed duplicate of 1985 computer game Super Mario Bros. set another world record when it was unloaded for $114,000 – the most significant expense at any point paid for a computer game.

Legacy Auctions said the duplicate of the Nintendo Entertainment System game was considered particularly uncommon in light of the fact that it was a piece of a short creation run with a cardboard hang-tab underneath the plastic, a component discovered not long after Nintendo began utilizing shrink-wrap rather than stickers to take boxes.

“The interest for this game was incredibly high, and if any parcel in the deal could hit a number that way, it would have been this one,” Heritage Auctions Video Games Director Valarie McLeckie said.

Legacy said the triumphant offer of $114,000 set another precedent for the offer of a computer game, which was recently set by another duplicate of a similar game that sold for $100,150 in February 2019.
