Here are the top three highest earners from last week’s weekly Video Game auction at Heritage. All results are from Sep 14, 2021.  lf-57-1-e1632236293240-224x300 Video Game Auctions: Most Expensive Sega Game Ever Sold

First place went to a Super Mario Bros. – Wata 8.5 A Sealed [Oval SOQ R, Later Production], NES Nintendo 1985 USA, which sold for $31,200. While I can’t find sales of that exact grade for comparison, a Wata 8.0 B+ Sealed [Oval SOQ TM, Later Release] sold for $22,200 in April of this year.

The second-highest earner spot was claimed by a Sealed Wata 9.0 A+ GoldenEye 007 for N64 Nintendo 1997 USA, which went for $12,600. This game was from one of the original production runs of the game and is much harder to find than the subsequent Player’s Choice version. It’s the third-best-selling Nintendo 64 video game with over 8 million copies sold.

Third place went to a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Wata 9.0 A Sealed [Oval SOQ TM], NES Ultra 1989 USA, the first appearance of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a home console video game. This game sold for $6,600.
