The auction has now ended and the game has sold for a hefty price of just short of $100,000 yes you heard it right the first time!. The final bidding ending at $99,902.00.

In the early nineties, Nintendo held a touring contest for players to compete for high scores in games like Super Mario, Rad Racer, and Tetris in the Nintendo World Championships. The carts used in those contests are incredibly rare.

The seller, muresan, is a video game collector of 25 years, but says he has decided to sell off most of his video game collection. The cartridge is in terrible shape with its label just hanging on with the word ‘Mario’ scribbled on in biro pen. Despite the missing label, muresan says the cartridge works fine and is authentic.

Do you have a rare video game sitting in the loft that could earn you thousands?
