    Default Considering selling my 1990 Nintendo World Championship Grey cartridge

    Hello all. I was the Philadelphia/Valley Forge winner of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships. I recently cleaned out my mother's attic and found the game given to me and all the other finalists and I'm considering selling it. I have a lot of other stuff from the championships as well (like a trophy, plaque, etc.)

    The condition is pretty perfect, a little dirty maybe, but it wipes right off with a finger. The label is not pealing. I don't have an NES but I assume that it works (it was in one of those game sleeves that all the games used to come in.)

    That is worth a lot. BlackDS posted a little while back a link to an ebay auction in which it was being sold for like $3,000 and that one had a pretty messed up labed. Yours sound like it is in better condition so it could be worth even more.

    Here are the pictures. Upon close inspection, it looks like there is a piece of tape over the front of label (see pic). This tape has been there since probably 1995 when I went to college. I will not remove the tape, but it looks like it would come off cleanly. There is also a redness in one of the pictures which does not exist on the actual unit. I think that was the flash.

    Based on the photos and other auctions I've seen in the past, I would say it is worth around $4,500.

    I don't have that kind of money to spend right now, but anyway good luck with the sale if you do decide to sell it

    Yeah, there is slight fading, so that might lower the value, still worth more than 10 dollars! 4,500 sounds like a good value.

    I thought the value might be up a little because it is so easy for me to authenticate. But maybe that is not so important.

    I guess the best way to find out is to place it on Ebay and have the bidding war begin

    If ebay is your route, just make sure you feature the game and advertise it on Nintendo fan sites.

    yeah never a bad idea, though holy grails such as this one get enough publicity by itself people tend to find it and post about it

    Currently though there's this store (jjgames) that has a promotion going on and they are giving away a free Nintendo World Championships cartridge in a contest... so I would wait until that is over to try and sell it.

    I've always wanted to get the NWC Grey Cart (But can't afford it though). Very cool.

    so did you end up selling it? I think you can get maybe $5000+ for it
