Up for auction is the be-all end-all of Video Game collecting. This is an original first part prototype of Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt/ World Class Track Meet! This is the only known copy to exist and I have been in possession of it for a few years now. The game is on an official Nintendo Prototype Development board; SJEPROM-01 which varies greatly from the released version which was on a SFROM Board:
Info and pictures of retail version
My brother and I have been long time prototype collectors and have one of the premier prototype collections in the world. That being said, this is the cornerstone of our collection and we are fully aware at how truly incredible this piece is.
We were recently credited in a national article in the examiner for our work with prototype preservation by tjcurtin1 who just recently sold the incredible Legend of Zelda Prototype: Link to Article , so rest assured, it doesn't get any more real or any more rare than this.
To be clear for people who understand where Video Game collecting is going:
This is Action Comics #1
This is the T206 Honus Wagner card
This is the 1849 Gold Double Eagle
This is your chance to own the premier piece of gaming history, and it will likely be your last. This is 26 times rarer than a NWC gold cart, dozens of times rarer than Stadium Events, and is reflective of the moment video gaming took the US market by storm and never looked back.
As I mentioned earlier, I have one of the largest collections of NES prototypes in the world, so please inquire if you'd like to purchase others. I thank you for looking at my auction and welcome any questions you may have. Good luck!
Oh, US Bidding only for the moment. If there is a serious international party, contact me and I will lift the restriction.
