An Even Rarer Version of the Nintendo World Championship Cart Appears On eBay

The grey cartridge that appeared on eBay had its label torn off, yet it sold for $99,000, and it officially became a world-record for a video game sold. That’s because Nintendo only created 90 of these carts and because of that, it is sought as an expensive, and very limited collectable.

However…that record might not last. (Culture, Nintendo, Retro)

That cartridge could be fake for all we know. I mean look it doesnt even have the Nintendo World championship sticker on it. Unlike the one AVGN has.

To be fair, it could look completely legit and still be a fake. Not like having a sicker that could have easily been made suddenly makes it more legit looking than not.

In my eyes it does.

It could be, but to sell for that much, it would be doubtful the sale would go through if it was deemed fake, thanks for ebay's protection policies.

Some guy called Pat the NES punk has both the grey and gold cartridges in mint condition. He even brought them to the pawn stars.
