At some point Earthbound became one of the more expensive SNES titles. It really make no sense, as the game isn`t that rare and while I admit it is a fun game, there are much better titles in the Super Nintendo library.
Right now a loose cartridge is pulling around $150.00 and nice CIB examples can fetch $400+. I know it`s all supply and demand that drives the prices, but this is probably the worst example of overvalued titles since Final Fantasy 7 on Playstation 1 a few years ago.
Anyways, someone just recently listed a VGA Graded Earthbound. Since the game was not shinkwrapped, this Qualified title means that it has been authenticated and verified by VGA that it was never played.
The auction has no reserve and has climbed to $2,000.00+ already with a full week left. It`s one of those auctions that will probably leave me scratching my head, but is fun to watch anyways.
Fun Fact: I was once told I missed out on purchasing five NIB copies of Earthbound for $20.00 each, someone else grabbed them a week before. My runner up prize? 50 sealed copies of Killer Instinct for $5.00 a pop.
