  1. Yeah, I might have to disagree with OP. Here's why... Video game collecting had always been relatively niche. Granted, it may have gained traction anyways with more gamers growing up and hunting their childhood faves, but it still wouldn't have exploded like it has. Let's just take a random old school collectible, like POGs. Maybe I have a stack of POGs in my closet, buried somewhere, and then I see on social that some fairly common graded slammer sold for a million dollars. Well, now my interest is piqued and I might go digging through my stuff to see what I got. Maybe I price it out. Maybe I think ALL my POGs should be worth a lot more. I didn't care about POGs or grading or anything like that before I saw the insane prices they were inflated to. Now I'm trying to pick them up online or at fleamarkets to see if I can find a gem. I don't know how direct or indirect the WATA/Heritage impact was, but i definitely think they had a hand in driving up demand. Make anything "worth" a million dollars, and people will be all over that shit. It's why you can't go to a yardsale anymore without granny charging $40 for Donkey Kong Country.
  2. I had no idea this was rare. Love learning new info on variants, and always get stoked when I see this thread bumped
  3. Okay, yeah, so I completely forgot there was a rev-a box. How are there so few of these!? Lol... seriously, though... where the hell are they? A one-off cart is one thing, but a new box print seems like a more time intensive investment by the manufacturer.
  4. Does anyone know what the print run was like for Stinger? It looks like the big shift to 3 screw for Konami/ultra was between 11/87 and 2/88. But Stinger launched in September of 87. So, did it only have a production run of 3 months??
  5. This is the first time I've actually considered bidding through Heritage because they have a DKC competition cart with the clamshell. But... it's probably going to be outrageous, so we'll see. My hope is that maybe the big time "investors" will see the 7.0 CIB and just move on
  6. Ok. True. But what you DON'T have is the 1.5 million you spent on the SM 64. You have a copy of SM 64, but you dont have 1.5 million. So then, inevitably, there has to come a time when you ask yourself... would I rather have that 1.5 million dollars? Maybe, to buy other things? Or a copy of SM 64... Sitting in a safe or a deposit box somewhere. How long does a stubborn chicken sit on a rotten egg waiting for it to hatch?
  7. What the hell is wrong with this market someone scored huge here. Actually something going for what it's probably "worth"... oh yeah, I forgot. These investors still don't understand VGA grades
  8. Thanks to : @DrUnKeN_TiGeR @Red @avatar! @Rudybegga for some sealed goodies of various conditions and a sweet Luigis Mansion display box!!
  9. I think you're good https://www.ebay.com/itm/WATA-9-0-SEALED-NES-Super-Mario-Bros-Nintendo-Entertainment-System-RARE-/255127534666?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0 This one shows same weird tubing on side image and a little on back. Also has much tighter seam where they connect on the sides, like yours pictured.
