Another Nintendo World Championships 1990 Gray Cartridge found!

NES nwc GREY CARTRIDGE

 

Hey collectors! We got a big good news for you today! Seems like another super-rare NWC (Nintendo World Championship) gray cartridge has been found!

Maybe if your not really into collecting stuff, you could ask “what is it?”. Well, the Nintendo World Championships was a 1990 Nintendo-promoted video game competition that toured twenty-nine cities across the United States and for the competition, 116 special game cartridges were manufactured. 90 of these copies exist as the official gray cartridge and were given out to finalists after the championships concluded. The other 26 are gold and were given out as prizes in a separate contest held by Nintendo Power magazineEach gray cartridge has a unique number making the cartridge easier to track and difficult to counterfeit. However, the gold cartridges have no unique identification numbers and are difficult to track and authenticate.

The Nintendo World Championships 1990 game cartridge is considered to be the most valuable NES cartridge released and one of the rarest (second only to Stadium Events). Because fewer gold cartridges were manufactured, they are rarer and demand a higher price than the gray cartridges. Those special cartridges have been described as the “holy grail” of console game collecting.

And here we go, an amazing piece of grey plastic valuable around $10.000!

As we can understand from the video, this specific gray cartridge is now in Italy (seems they like to collect a lot in there) in the hands of a Gamescollection.it community member and was won by Shannon Webster in the Denver NWC back in 1990.
