An unopened copy of Super Mario Bros. went under the hammer for $ 2 million
An unopened copy of the legendary Super Mario Bros. left the auction for $ 2 million. The purchaser of the game wished to remain anonymous. The total cost was a record and broke the price tag of Super Mario 64, which went under the hammer for $ 1.56 million less than a month ago.

It is worth noting that the record figure has been updated over the past year. This fact is associated with the increased demand for children's collectibles. So, in July 2020, Super Mario Bros. was sold for $ 114 thousand.Then, in November, a copy of the third part of the franchise was given for $ 156 thousand.A new record was set by the sale of the first game in the series and $ 660 thousand. Finally, the previous record was set by Legend of Zelda, which left the auction at around $ 870 thousand.

Most of the records have been surpassed in the sale of vintage games, but here the situation is slightly different. The fact is that the two-millionth copy of the plumber's adventures platformer was originally bought by the Rally site. She specializes in buying collectibles to turn them into small companies where people can buy shares like investments. If a potential buyer appears, holders need to vote for or against the sale. That was the model behind the deal: earlier in April last year, Rally acquired the sealed Super Mario Bros. for $ 140 thousand, and now the shareholders have given the go-ahead for sale to an unknown collector.
