According to the head of the chain stores Cody Spencer, August 6, a guy came to sell or trade my old collection of video games on anything newer. When the seller has revised the cartridges for evaluation, he first could not believe my eyes – in a box with dozens of video games was a real “Holy Grail” for collectors – a rare copy of the game World Championships 1990. The seller had to explain to the visitor what a treasure he’s kept all these years. Later, the company wrote on Twitter that he had paid the buyer $ 13 thousand per game.
Cartridges World Championships 1990 were presented to the winners of the world championship video games Nintendo in 1990.

Of course, to be useful for collectors, the cartridge must have a certain status. Long time collectors and dealers thought that there is 90 grey and 24 gold cartridge. However, the serial numbers prove that there must be a few hundred. Serial number copy of the game was “0302”, the highest registered to date “0348”.
Tellingly, cartridge World Championships 1990 game was purchased by a collector the next day, but the amount of the transaction and the name of the new shop owner did not disclose. Given that previously, such cartridges are sold for 20 thousand dollars, then surely trading sit became richer by a few thousand from this transaction.
