The Legend of Zelda made its debut in the United States on August 22, 1987 to much fanfare. Recently, Nintendo Entertainment System games have been selling for a fortune, which means that sealed copies are near impossible to find. Despite retailing for just $49.99 USD at launch, this donated game commanded a whopping $411,278.
Believe it or not, this sealed copy of The Legend of Zelda was purchased 34-years ago and allegedly forgotten. The previous owner decided to just donate it to a Goodwill thrift store in Connecticut, who then auctioned it off for quite the hefty sum. For the collectors out there, the game is marked “NES P ZL, Nintendo, 1987”. More information here.
