A long time ago a copy of the Nintendo Campus Challenge for the NES was found at a garage sale, selling for something like $50. A few years later the game was resold for roughly $3000.
Fast forward to a few months ago the game was once again resold, now at no less than $14000, Then today, only a few minutes ago the game once again changed hands, this time at a recordsetting price of no less than $20100. That's truly one hell of a price I must say.
The sale happened on ebay where the starting bid was no more than $0.99, making the road for jjgames to making the money back very long. For days the auction didn't really get anywhere and until roughly half a minute before the auction ended the price was at $7500.
It looked like jjgames would be taking a huge loss even when the price went a little higher, to $10000. Then a few seconds before the auction ended the final bid of $20100 came about.
Now who's the winner? :-)
