If you think Super Mario 3D All Stars scalper prices are crazy? Then

Sealed games can get more money on auctions than used games, especially if they are from multiple generations ago. But this sealed copy of Super Mario Bros for the NES sold for $660,000 (£480,000) on Heritage Auctions.

Common, yet so expensive.

Quoted from Engadget

A nearly perfect copy of Super Mario Bros. for the NES has sold for $660,000 at auction. In what turned out to be a 13-bidder contest, $550,000 went to the game’s original owner. The copy was one of the earliest shrink-wrapped versions of the games you could buy in the US (Super Mario Bros. eventually had 11 different box variants, according to WATA Games).

Heritage Auctions, the firm that oversaw the sale, told Ars Technica it dates back to late 1986. It was reportedly bought as a Christmas gift and sat unopened in a desk drawer for the better part of four decades. “I never thought anything about it,” the seller, who asked to remain anonymous, told the auction house.
