Super rare copy of 'Super Mario Bros.' sells for over $30,000
A rare, sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. for the NES sold for just over $30,000 on eBay Wednesday. No, that’s not a typo.
Classic video game trader DKOldies put the copy of the 1985 game up on eBay a week ago at a starting bid of one cent, CEO Drew Steimel said. Bids started coming in quickly, and the auction hit $6,000 a few hours before closing.
“The last minute it started climbing up,” Steimel said. “And then in the last 10 seconds it went from $6,000 to $30,000, and I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh.'”
