Original Super Mario Bros. Cartridge Hits $310K In Potential Record Breaking Auction
What's more is that current and future bids would break the record for video game collectibles, provided the sale is completed. Back in 2020, a rare Nintendo PlayStation prototype ended up selling for around $360,000, including buyer's premium. The Super Mario Bros. copy for sale, including the buyer's premium, is sitting at an eye-watering $372,000.
On Heritage right now, there's a sealed Super Mario Bros. that's been bid up to $310,000. Auction ends in 7 days.— Chris Kohler (@kobunheat) March 25, 2021
This has a good chance of eclipsing the $360,000 hammer price for the Play Station prototype and becoming the highest-priced collectible game ever sold. pic.twitter.com/lS6bjtuV1v
Though it is an astounding amount of money, it would be incredible to own a piece of history such as this. Perhaps, however, it should not go to a private owner but a museum to help showcase video games' history. In any case, if you want to pony up the cash to buy the copy for yourself, you can do so here.
