Guy Trades in Rare Nintendo Cartridge Game for $13,000

If you own any old Nintendo games, you might want to look into how much they are worth!
At a used game store in Seattle, called Pink Gorilla Games, they surprised a man that was trying to make money trading in his old Nintendo games.
It’s the ultra-rare Nintendo World Championships 1990 cartridge that was in a box among other games.
IGN.com got more to the story from the store’s owner, Cody Spencer, who explained:
“The guy came in not knowing at all what the cartridge was worth. He was pretty blown away with the offer. I made sure to explain to him what the item typically sells for and what we would offer him and why… The seller had no idea what it was nor where he got it. It sounds like he collected NES games a little bit when collecting NES games had yet to grow in popularity.”
Pink Gorilla Games offered him $13,000. The cartridge was given out to the winners of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, which saw players compete in popular games.
The game store was able to find a buyer almost right away, and while not giving away the final sale price, apparently the game can go for as much as $25,000.
