I appreciate they came in to offer this and are dealing with everyone's silliness in style. Kudos.

They are correct, though. Someone else was bidding on it, good luck finding another buyer!

But seriously, I am curious if these mega-spenders look at VGA graded games (even one like this) and just go "ewe!"

I mean... some of these people are a bit lazy in their collecting and let their money do their work.  I just don't see someone even throwing down $125k for this, and then resubmitting it to WATA (coz WATA is the shizz) and then flipping it.  The mega-spenders just want it done.  Maybe I'm wrong, but that's a quality I've noticed, in general, over many decades regardless of the market.

Most of them are completely clueless when it comes to VGA. They think sealed video game collecting started with "WATA" and conveniently ignore the 12+ years of VGA sales. The trouble is, they don't realize that all the "good stuff" was already spoken for years ago. and most of it is already locked in VGA cases.

So even if a population report does come out from WATA in the next year or 2, it will be highly inaccurate in terms of the supply overall. Once the WATA census comes out, and once big spenders understand that half the supply is split with a competing grading company, I guarantee a massive price correction will be underway. The more common games will drop, the rarer games will rise, of course factoring in demand. Something that long-time collectors knew from the beginning.

The other part they can't grasp is that a VGA85 Left Bros like the one SealedWholesale is showing off is likely in much better condition than the one that just sold for ~155K, and that most VGA graded games on average are in much better condition than they are led to believe.
