WTB: Sealed or Graded SNES The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 1st print


Recommended Posts

Quick update (9/5/2021).. I'm back to working on a boxed GBA set. I'll be updating my wishlist soon. Still open to games on the sealed wishlist though.

(Updated 05/10/21)

So for those few folks following me, know I've been working on a full boxed set of GBA for at least a couple years now. Fatigue is setting as I'm very much into the junk end of the set, so I'm taking a break to revitalize and focus on other goals. 

One other transition I've been going through is shifting from largely CIB collecting to sealed and graded collecting.  This transition started some time in 2019, but really cemented itself in the second half of 2020, when I somehow made the transition into a graded collector. (I guess my small graded collection had grown big enough, and "collection-y" enough, that I could focus on growing it.) I've sent my first two batches of games to VGA in pursuit of this. (I won't get them back this year.) Update: I'm now working on my 6th batch.

For fun and excitement, I've begun exploring other consoles looking for GOAT sealed games that I really want to collect.  I also have a few great GBA games that I still need sealed. No surprises here, other than maybe the lack of Mario games on my wishlist. I do prefer VGA to WATA, but am open to both now that there is cross-grading data published. Ungraded is totally fine, but we'd just need to work through more pics/review.

Bump. Not adding anything new for now, as I want to focus on LttP.



sending mine out to Heritage for grading first and then will be put on auction. I am expecting it will be a better grade than the one that sold there for $7200 a couple months back. Its the real one not a players choice
