    I'd say yes, but then again I also don't collect sealed games.

    Well, if you aren't in need for money, I say no. The only time I would eBay an item like that is if 1) I desperately needed some cash and 2) it was going for insanely high prices on eBay (like you mentioned in your post).

    Sell it. Go buy a mint opened one (or just a loose cart) so you can actually play the damn thing.

    Then spend the rest of the money on your missus/gf. If no missus, go buy your Mum something nice.

    Wait. Sell it when you need the money. Me thinks it will only go up in value.

    I completely agree with that last statement. I think that as one of the most collectible games out there, it will become even more extremely value in time.

    Especially if you don't need money right now

    The one that's on eBay right now had an opening bid of $500, and it only has one bidder. The seller recently listed the same game for a $550 BIN and no one bought it. I think based on this information, if you put yours on eBay right now it would more likely than not go for less than $500. So if you do decide to sell it, I'd wait a few months, at least. Maybe hold out until Christmastime.

    I'm the bidder,and i onyl bought it because it is in pristine condition,while yours wasn't

    For such collectable item,even 1 rip in the seal will convince to not bid on it.
    Even 1 scuff,or a bent corner,and it goes down $200 minimum!

    Heck. No. Do not sell that sucker. Display it. Frame it and put it on your wall for all your jealous friends to come and see.

    My father bought me Secret of Mana on my 15th Birthday. He paid like $36 for a used copy that came with the officiaul strategy guide. My word, I was so happy to have that game at last. Still own it to this day.

    sell it when you need the $$.

    Notice I said when and not IF.

    coz there comes a point in every guy's life... they will be in $$ trouble.

    It seems like you really want to sell it. You're just looking for someone to say "Sell it" so you don't have to regret it.

    So, sell it.
