This Nintendo video game could sell for $10,000 – Yahoo Finance

A Nevada man’s unopened copy of cult-classic video game ‘Kid Icarus’ sold for a whopping US$9,000 (AU$13,231) in an online auction.Scott Amos found the Nintendo game in the attic of his childhood home, Reno Gazette Journal reports, and it was still in the bag, with the receipt for US$38.45 (AU$56.50).According to the publication, no one in the family has a recollection of purchasing the game.”All the family has been trying to come up with a hypothesis,” Amos told the publication.”(My mom) thinks she put it there and never got it back out, and then it ended up in the attic.”But Amos said he didn’t think the game would be worth much.”It was kind of funny — I saw it was sealed, and I thought it was worth a couple hundred dollars,” Amos said.”I go to work the next day and emailed a couple of experts. One of them wrote me back within 30 minutes and said, ‘You have an Easter egg.'”As it turns out, there were fewer than 10 sealed copies of the game, meaning it was worth quite a bit.And, it’s not the only vintage item to sell for thousands.Recently, a first edition Harry Potter book sold for a whopping $54,000, which means it might be time to check the attic.Make your money work with Yahoo Finance’s daily newsletter.
