Ok guys, calm down! Lately we’ve seen a super boost in NWC1990 cartridges sales, but we usually talk about Grey ones, that are extremely rare (and expensive), but not as the Gold ones.
Last year we reported about another Nintendo World Championship 1990 grey cartridge found by some Italian collector. We also said the the nice piece of plastic is usually worth around £10k. But here we got a new record, since a long-date collector from North Carolina is selling his one on eBay, and the auction already reached $90k!!
So, let’s recap a bit. Firstly a former SOJ (see: SEGA of Japan) employee revealed a very old console prototype, called SEGA Pluto, that basically is just a Saturn with internet connection, but there are no other known unites around, so we assume it’s pretty rare. Than another guy (pictured above), after seeing all the news about the Pluto, realized that he got one in his collection (what a lucky guy!). So only two of them in the entire world, still pretty rare.
This second chap then decided to put his long-forgotten-fresh-discovered SEGA Pluto prototype up on a eBay auction, but the auction finished at $15.5k with reserve price not met. Such a shame! Is that possible that the guy is so greedy not to accept more than $15k for an old console?
SEGA Nerds guys reached Roger Vega (this is the name of the young man) to ask some question about the auction. So here we go!
We’ve already told you about the SEGA Pluto console dropped on a eBay auction few days ago. Well, now the auction is over, but the prototype stills unsold.
We saw this coming. The seller was quite greedy to put such an high reserve price, that remains unknown, but for sure is more than $15.5k, that was the final bid reached by the auction.
Will the seller try again? We really think so…stay tuned!
Do you remember the huge revelation about the two super-secret SEGA Pluto prototype consoles we told you a while ago? Good, because one of them is currently on eBay.
Yep, that was predictable. In the end it’s just two-of-a-kind so we’re not really surprised about that (saw that, at least, one of the owner didn’t even know what the hell it was).
The thing that wasn’t predictable is that the auction has already reached more than $8000 and it’s still 3 days to go. Yes, that’s an huge amount of money! But don’t get too excited, because the actual eBay auction says that the reserve price has not been met yet (you, greedy bastard!). For now we can just wait, we’ll keep you posted!
Do you remember the woman that last week found and bought an ultra-rare copy of Stadium Events for just $7.99? Well, obviously she’s selling it, for a $12k!
The list, hosted on GameGravel, says:
“This is it! This is the one you have been waiting for. NES Stadium Events CIB in excellent condition. This item is complete with box, cartridge, black case, manual, and even the original styrofoam in the bottom of the box. Any condition questions should be resolved with the photos provided. We have tried to take as many photos as possible to give an accurate description of the game and all aspects of the packaging.”
Unfortunately, the auction is open for US residents only, so fuck you if you live elsewhere! But at least you can check it out if you’re curious about the final price.
