    Default Sealed MarioLand Gameboy Game Graded at 85-90?

    I just send out a sealed pretty mint looking MarioLand from 89 Gameboy game in to get graded. Value??

    I have ALL intentions to sell it once I get it back in around 40 days. I assume it will get at least an 85.

    Just make sure that you get back the copy that you sent. I heard from a reliable source that they remove the contents of the game boxes that they grade before resealing them. Caveat emptor is all I've got to say. Best of luck with your slabbed game.

    No sence worrying about it, they seal it in with silicon and then plexiglass it, you'll never get it open again anyhow...

    If you decide to pay someone else to estimate the grading of a videogame, three things.

    1. You are insane. (Yes that includes everyone else looking to get games "graded".

    2. Try VAG games, they are much better than the VGA anyways.

    3. See number one.

    How much did you pay to have it graded? That amount will determine how hard I will laugh.

    I just got back another game professionally graded by VAG games:



    I personally think it is their best work to date.

    People who send in sealed games to get graded, and then immediately put them on eBay are the heart and soul of this hobby.

    BTW, VAG hermaphroditically seals all of their games to keep them dry and crispy until the nuclear holocaust of 1987 destroys us all.

    VAG now grades controllers, folks!





    The only reason they gave it a 90 and not a 95 was on account of the presence of Goodwill ink on the box. I wasn't happy about it.

    I don't know why you would waste your money on that bullshit. The only thing they are an authority on is how to wrap something in plastic. I you could have put your game in a zip lock bag and saved a whole lot of money

    I got a VAG grade for a picture of a cart I found on the internet! They really liked this one, because I didn't know they could give grades over 100! I'll probably put this pic on ebay later!

    The value is the same as an ungraded game. No, that doesn't count when some retard, who you seem to be aspiring to, puts their game on eBay for 400% the going rate and it sits their for 7 months, until some other moronic opportunistic buys it, only to put it back up immediately for 600% the going rate.

    VGA is making a killing by pretending to increase value of sealed titles when all they are doing is rubbing their dick on your game before making an arbitrary meaningless rating and sticking it into a plastic box. Meanwhile, they have your money and you have the same thing you had before.

    Keep supporting this bullshit and watch it all collapse like comic books when they start grading CIB games and carts.

    I love graded games.

    Also, if you don't get the UV protected triple staple seal you are wasting your money.

    I, erm... the VAG has just perfected a vaccuum sealing process that is sure to revolutionize game slabbing forever:



    Never worry about your games suffering from freezer burn ever again, folks! Seriously, it is time to get on the bandwagon!!!1!11!1one!!11!
