Sealed copies of classic games can go for a lot of money, but one collector tried to hit the jackpot with a sealed copy of Super Mario Bros.
I bet Rick offered him $20?
Then Chumlee smoked it.
I have made $13594 last month by working online from my home. I am a full time college student and by just doing this in my free time for few hours per week by using my laptop, I payed off my student loans.

That is not worth $1 million to anyone.
Lol they're worth like 1,000-ish sealed and mint. Sure you can go quite a bit higher depending on market and buyer (maybe up to about $3,000 if it's graded) but nowhere near 1,000,000 what a joke
Problem with these older games is they may not even work. Buying a sealed game is just buying the shrink wrap for the most part, because you could open it up, and it could be completely shot. It's the risk one has as a collector. Same is true with some optical media on some of the various CD era systems...but it usually depends on who manufactured the discs themselves.
Well no one is buying this to play it, a copy of mario/duck hunt you can literally find at any retro game store for less than $5 snd it's the exact same game.
True. But, as a collector, it'd be nice to know that you have an actual working copy instead of just a nicely sealed piece of plastic and a cardboard box.
Obviously some of ya'll don't understand collecting, different type of collectors nor understand the significance of the particular copy. If you want a copy to play of course you're going to buy a $5 dollar used copy. Even sealed copies of this game are that pricey....but this particular copy is different. Maybe not $1 million different but still different. No one is buying a sealed copy to play or even being it sealed in hopes that it works. And if it is sealed it most likely will play if opened. As for this copy, it is a graded sealed copy of a test market run.
I understand collecting and collectors fine. But, as a collector, I expect to buy products in good condition. One aspect of good condition is that it actually works. I know there is no way to tell without opening it, and it's just the nature of the beast. When I say it's a problem, I don't mean I wouldn't buy sealed copies, just that it's a drawback of buying sealed copies.
"I understand collecting and collectors fine. But, as a collector, I expect to buy products in good condition. One aspect of good condition is that it actually works.

You are not a collector because you never know about a sealed copy and if you buy one you will never open it if you are really a collector... I have every game I ever bought since the 2600 but I don't think of myself as a collector I played them all(mostly).
Yeah, you definitely don't really understand collecting. If you buying a sealed copy of something to keep, you don't really care if it works.
I don’t think the value in this product is whether or not it works. It’s never ever going to be opened. Who ever opens it will immediately cause its value to drop by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
True, plus the old NES consoles didn't hold up well. By the time I traded mine in for a Genesis, I had to use another game cartridge to place on top to keep the one I'm playing down. I wasn't particularly hard on my stuff either.
This was a test copy, only known existing version. The expect said around 300,000 - 500,000.
Last known one sold for 100,000, still nowhere near the $1,000,000 mark
Proof that ultra rich people are actually quite stupid...
Or they have too much money and don’t know what to do with it. Let be honest, there’s only a few reason why they’re rich in the first place. 1. Inheritance 2. Investment (must be smart) 3. They’re very smart to have their own business.
They’re actually not. There’s a reason why the rich delve into buying expensive art, classics, jewellery and collectables. What is your money doing every day? Falling in value. What is this ultra rare game doing? Going up in value.
Ultra broke people are even worst. I used to know people who stayed broke and kept blowing money on drugs. There's people that blow money on $1000 clothing items and go on Instagram to flex but stay working a 9 - 5 for $10 an hour lol. BIG TRUSS.
Chancing his arm, i'd like a sealed copy for my collection but at that price nah.
test market copy, second print, sealed
What a Moron
He really wasn’t a moron though.
well, "collectors" dont want to play the game and drop serious money for something like that. but not a million lol
For all those that clearly have not seen this video. This is a Sealed test copy and only 10,000 of these were ever made, A non-sealed went for $100,000. I think $1 million for probably the only sealed version left in existence is a bargain for a collector.
These games sealed in plastic should be worth less than the game loose. There is no way to open these things unless you cut it open, so how the hell do you play it? It's worthless like this, get a picture of the box and hang it on the wall and buy the game for a few bucks and play the damn thing.
You aren’t thinking in the mind of a collector you thinking in the mind of a gamer who wants to play with it. Someone with wealth would buy this for hundreads of thousands of dollars it’s a great piece of art to have and huge bragging rights, I could see Robin Williams buying this up if he were alive today. On top of this, it’s probably going to go up in value so some might even buy it as a means to make profit.
Maybe he can get that much money if he keeps it sealed and waits, I don't know some 1000 years from now, lol
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahah, damm I wich I was there, hahahahahahahahahahahahahah
Actors portray sale of classic game there fixed it for ya the shows as fake as a pair of well you get the point
