How Absolute Dead Mint Pristine Affects Prices
Can I coin the term ADMP? When selling stuff myself, I try to avoid the term mint as I find it extremly subjective. What some people call mint, other would only call acceptable. However, there is a trend in collecting over the past few years where people are either upgrading or starting collecting only absolutely mint condition CIB games.Not a big deal right? Well the price difference you are looking at for this type of collecting is extreme.
Case in point, this SNES Super Mario World is already at $150+ with a day to go.
One of the best (or worse) examples of this are the NES Black Box games.
I’ll do a follow up post some time soon with some more examples.
Bottom line is that if you have a really minty game, it’s in your best interest to market it as such.
