The Cartridge Was Apparently A Very Early Copy
An extremely rare copy of the original NES game, "Super Mario Bros.," just sold on eBay for over $30,000.
While many are skeptical of the price, since most video game enthusiasts will have a copy or two of the classic cartridge lying around, there's one distinct feature of this purchase that makes it worth the price tag: a hangtag on the back of the plastic wrapping.
DKOldies CEO Drew Steimel told Mashable, after talking with Nintendo fans on Reddit, "They said the reason that game went for so much was because Mario was always sold in the system. You bought it with the system, it came in the box. This particular copy was from before that happened, before Nintendo decided to bundle them. They only did it for a short time."
Because of one little tag, this staple of any video game collection is worth more than many cars.
