Sealed Copy Of Stadium Events Sells For $42,000
There are plenty of hard to find NES games out there, but none as rare as Stadium Events. It’s not that the game itself is particularly amazing, but just that it only stayed on store shelves for a brief time before being pulled and replaced with World Class Track Meet.
The game has sold for extremely high amounts in the past – even just the Game Pak alone can net someone over $10,000. Having the game in its original box and still in its original factory shrink wrap is worth so much more to collectors. According to Kotaku a seller has completed a sales transaction for $41,977 and payment has exchanged hands, making this one of the highest prices paid for a video game.
