I want to apologize in advance for anyone that saw my Bound High box for sale. One of my employees is listing my extras and mistakenly posted it as well. I immediately removed it when I noticed it.

For those that are interested, it should be obvious that allaboardgames334 is me.

Nobody should have a reason to complain or be upset if somebody wants to sell their Bound High boxes or other repro items, so long as the one selling it doesn't try to pass it off for something that it is not. Eventually, these things will run out from the initial supplier, and more Virtual Boy fans will be looking for them in the future, so if people want to sell their copies because they no longer want them or because they need some money, they should feel free to do so, while being honest about it.

Dishonesty gets the mob after you ;-)

How often does this happen?:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Family-Fun-Fi ... 7-NTSC-RARE-/251279678582

Do any of you NES collectors want to make a guess as to what this auction will end at?

I'm going to guess $22,500.00.

*EDIT:

Hmmm... people on NintendoAge seem to think that it is a phony copy. I guess if that is true and found out by many people, then it won't sell for much at all. It is certainly a convincing auction to me.

I'm watching it to see how high it goes. It looks real to me too Ben, I think your right. Of course people online are complaining its fake, they wish it was them owning it. It looks very aged to me, of course I could be wrong but looks legit!

Well, I received clarification from people at NintendoAge, and their information does make the auction seem very fishy. Check out the latest info on the "The Official Stadium Events Auction/Sale/Discussion Thread."

http://nintendoage.com/forum/messagev ... 01&catid=3&threadid=48839

Apparently, the photo in the auction is indeed a photo of a genuine CIB NTSC Stadium Events, but the photo does not belong to the person who is running the auction. The person who is running the auction Photoshopped out the original information on the sticky note that appears on the cart in the photo and Photoshopped in his own information on the sticky note.

Now, if he truly has the CIB Stadium Events in his possession, why would he alter an old photo that does not belong to him and present it as the only photo for the auction? Why not take all-new pictures of it? Thus, it seems that he is intending to send the winning bidder an item that does not appear in the photo or else send no item at all and try to run away with the money by some means.

WOW! People got some nerve! Even the scuff marks on the wood flooring are exactly the same! The plot begins to thicken! Still gonna watch to see how this drama plays out! Glad I'm not caught up in it! Those poor bidders!

The auction photos looks "kinda wrong"
The white notice paper is photoshopped.
I think is a fake auction.
Shame on this dirtbag

Some bidders are blind and have definitely too much money

Yeah, this game is definitely the Holy Grail of all commercially released video games across all systems ever made. I've read that there are only about a dozen complete-in-box copies of NTSC Stadium Events confirmed to be still in existence, and a sealed copy of NTSC Stadium Events sold on Ebay 3 years ago for $41,300.00, but Wikipedia states that the winning bidder never paid.

It appears that the above seller is hoping to break the record selling price with a copy that is not even sealed. Perhaps he would be willing to accept any offer over $40,000.00.
