A sealed NES Stadium Events is Up for sale again

Recommended Posts

That's one of the things about "big" items like this. Though most collectors have come of age and have more money, they don't have THAT much money to be blowing on a game they'd have to later find someone equally insane enough to purchase. Let's see if they pay this time, if not, calling this a record is moot. I think, realistically, this is more like a $2000-5000 item.

I think stan is right ever since that famous auction with the nintendo and 5 games one being a stadium events complete they seem to have been popping up there is one on sale now for 6 grand. I think they are not worth that much and by the hype the price is driven up. No normal person may consider this item but some collectors buy for the rarest of items. I too am waiting to see it relisted. Here is the auction for proof.

Here it is....... eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2207085269401?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=220708526940&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

No box, no glory.

 

The factory shrinkwrapped part carries a lot of weight - i.e., $ - for certain NES collectors.

 

Opened, this title is worth a lot less and even more so without a box.

I never got into sealing myself, I think it's pointless. If you have one game like this that you could MAYBE sell for a lot more down the road, maybe, but otherwise they're so worthless to me since playing the games is also key to collecting them, at least in my eyes. Plus, though an NA member named Bronty made an excellent attempt at displaying how you can tell whether a seal is real or not, it's still very, very possible to make a fake. For all you know that is just a Stadium Events box, and inside a Mario Duck Hunt and a letter saying fuck you.

I agree with Stan. I would never buy a sealed game or system. You never know. Id play extra on the fact its NIB but i would ask the seller to open it before i paid them.

$22k<$31k. This makes Atari the undisputed King of Consoles!

 

Except for that sealed Stadium Events that sold for $4Xk.

The seller was a non collector ,claiming hardship and they never relisted it. The seller refused to reply to collectors who later asked about it......Hmm.

 

I think this was done to back out of paying ending fees OR someone paid more than the highest bidder after the auction ended. Either way the seller has reason not to talk about it.

unfortunately he had to relist the item with the exact same pictures/info on it so i highly doubt the buyer paid. So if you offer 400K my guess you get it.

gee with the vga grade to back it up I would imagine this would be a steal. Do you think he would only accept a quarter mil> 250,000?

Guess the Stadium Events market has dried up.

 

He needs to put a decimal point in there about 5 places to the left ;)

Too bad. But let me ask the next guy this. If this game was truly worth this but some crazy reason. Would you spend that kind of money on it if you had it?
