Vintage Gaming Super-Collection Sells for Over One Million Dollars

on July 11, 2012 8:06 AM

When I think of places where I am most likely to find cheap – or at least, reasonably priced – vintage games, a few places come to mind: Ebay, Amazon, and your average flea market or vintage game store. Aptly-named Ebay seller, ‘collectors_king,’ recently listed an extremely large collection of video games that essentially dwarfs every Ebay listing and flea market offering I have ever seen anywhere, ever.

The seller dubbed it the, “biggest collection ever,” himself. Included in the lot were the entire libraries of every Nintendo and Sega system ever created, as well as a huge variety of PC games. Not only were the collections complete, but they were all factory-sealed with the original boxes and manuals.

The lot has since sold for a whopping 1.3 million dollars (or one million euros). Shipping alone was over 1000 dollars. I would hate to be the seller if the buyer decides to make a return. The listing is still up however, if you would like to check it out for yourself.
