The eBay auction for the super rare, Family Fitness Stadium Events is approaching the end with just over a day left. The initial listing put the game up for auction starting at $5,000, however with the auction counting down it is now approaching $100,000 (Currently $99,600/£65,600).
The factory sealed 1987 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game from Bandai has had its authenticity verified by the Video Game Authority in Roswell, Georgia in the USA according to the seller.
Once the game arrived safely, the professionals at VGA gently cleaned the item, verified it, graded it and sealed it in a professional quality acrylic case where it will remain for the rest of its life.
It even made the Nintendo list for the 25 rarest games available by Computer and Video Games
Stadium Events (NES, US) – £500
Though common in PAL territories, Stadium Events is one of the NES’s most collectable games in America. Although it’s a terribly average fitness game, its value is due to Bandai printing a test run of the game that was sold in Woolworths stores for a very short period before Nintendo bought the rights. Rumours suggest there are only 10 complete copies on the market, and even unboxed Stadium Events carts can sell for £400 (Inside Gamer addition: $600).
