A sealed edition of Super Mario Bros. was just purchased for $2 million

 It appears that records are made to be broken. The benchmark has been raised again, less than a month after a copy of Super Mario 64 sold for $1.56 million to become the most expensive video game ever sold.

The New York Times reported on Friday that an unidentified buyer paid $2 million for a very rare edition of Super Mario Bros., according to Rob Petrizzo, a founder member of the collectibles site Rally.

According to Rally's listing, the copy in question received a 9.8 rating from professional grading service Wata, making it the highest-graded example in existence.


Rally works a piece uniquely in contrast to customary closeout houses like Heritage Auctions. As The Times features, Rally buys collectibles and welcomes individuals to put resources into them as though they were an individual stock. At the point when somebody means to get one of their collectibles, Rally presents the proposal to those who put resources into the item, who vote whether to sell it and money out. 

Rally paid $140,000 for this duplicate of Super Mario Bros. in April 2020 and presented 3,000 offers at $50 each, for a market cap of $150,000. 

Concerning what the fate of computer game gathering resembles, it's impossible to say. Petrizzo accepts we may see the start of a recent fad. "As I would see it, it hasn't arrived at the majority," he said. "You'll begin to see much more individuals focusing and doing explore."
