Following the record-breaking sale of an old copy of Super Mario Bros. for $660,000 USD, Heritage Auctions is back again to offer a super-rare version of The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Pre-bidding has seen the 9.0 WATA graded 1987 NES cartridge surpass $110,000 before the auction’s July 9 start date.

This special single sealed copy of The Legend of Zelda is from the game’s very first production run that lasted for a few months in late 1987 and is the earliest known copy of the game in existence at this quality. “Truly, the term ‘grail’ only begins to scratch the surface of describing this game,” said Heritage Auctions. “Of all of the games we’ve offered in our auctions, this sealed, early production copy of the first game in the groundbreaking Legend of Zelda series is no doubt the apotheosis of rarity, cultural significance, and collection centerpieces. A proverbial trifecta of collector perfection that only one will receive the honor of calling their own.”
