    I personally am not a sealed game collector. I'm just not into paying a premium for a game that I am not able to use. However, if I do find sealed games at normal game price or even on super cheap, I will leave them sealed for my collection or to sell later on.

    When I saw this news, I was really surprised. Finding a sealed part is quite complicated but it seemed to me a pretty exaggerated price

    Yet more sealed NES game insanity, this time involving a different game:

    A sealed copy of Super Mario Bros. 3 has sold for $156,000

    It just keeps getting crazier and crazier..........

    It's weird how all these super high priced sealed games are all selling from this one specific auction house and are all graded by this same WATA grading company, not the more common VGA company. I don't see any of these games selling for so much on ebay or other auction sites.

    It is true many items sell for more on Heritage. Comic collectors sometimes refer to it as the Heritage tax.
    eBay is fine for many things but at certain price point some people get nervous buying on eBay.

    So just like Bring A Trailer, except for video games.

    So it's not actually a scam? I assumed that auction site wasn't legit or the buyers and sellers were planning something like manipulating the markets.

    That very well could be happening too.
