Rare NES Cartridge Sells for $21,400

Shacknews reports that after a month of bidding, an incredibly rare copy of the NES cartridge Nintendo World Championship 1990 has sold for a price of $21,400, plus $10 for shipping. Listed on online auction site in a lot of 24 NES games with an unassuming starting price of $24, the game was sold by a man apparently unaware of its status as the most valuable NES cartridge in existence.

Ninety gray cartridges were manufactured for semi-finalists, while 26 gold cartridges--similar to the well known gold Legend of Zelda cartridges--were manufactured for the winners of a Nintendo Power contest. The cartridge sold in this week's auction is one of the incredibly rare gold units.

Has no real label, and a switch up top to pick the game.

I paid $1200 for it when I got it.

The Gold one... Man I would have loved to have that.

If it's that game it's still probably worth quite a bit. Cause if you don't want it i'll buy it off ya for 2 bucks;)
