What do you get when you bought a Super Mario Bros. game in 1986, put it in a desk drawer, and forget about it for nearly 30 years? The answer is pretty easy… you get rich! Well, this past Friday that happened to a lucky individual when their forgotten Super Mario Bros. game was auctioned off for $660,000.
Super Mario Bros. Game Forgotten About For Years
According to a report from WSBT 22, Heritage Auctions said the unopened copy of Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. was bought in 1986 as a Christmas present. The game was then put in a desk drawer still sealed, hang tab intact, and forgotten until it was found earlier this year. According to Heritage’s video game specialist Valarie McLeckie, it will not be easy to find another game like this.
“Since the production window for this copy and others like it was so short, finding another copy from this same production run in similar condition would be like looking for a single drop of water in an ocean”.
