This auction is amazing. Not only is it a complete set, but the majority of the titles are CIB (complete in box). It also includes a complete Sachen set, PAL Exclusives, Homebrew Releases, Reproductions several Prototypes and lots of hardware.
Listed here is the results of over 10 years of collecting for the NES. It is a complete set of every NES game issued in the U.S. plus a bunch more. The only two titles missing are arguably not needed for a complete set. Not included are Myriad 6 in 1 (a variant of Caltron 6 in 1, which is included), and Nintendo World Championships (an “alternate” version is included in this auction). Every game is as complete as possible with three exceptions. Peek-a-boo Poker and Wacky Races are both missing manuals, and Stadium Events is cart only. Also included in this lot are most of the PAL exclusive games, a complete Sachen set, and some authentic unreleased games. The condition of the games range from fair (only a few) to mint. I am extremely aware of the unlikelyhood for this lot to sell at the BIN price, but have a best offer available.
For price reference, in 2005 a near complete loose NES set that was missing a lot of the unlicensed stuff like the Panesians, sold for just over $10,000. In 2007 another loose complete collection was listed, but after extensive fake bids that drove it up to $300,000, I’m not sure if it was sold after.
