For the really serious EarthBound collectors out there, two copies of EarthBound are up for sale on eBay that might interest you:
First is another copy of EarthBound graded by the VGA that’s selling for $2000:
I’ve seen a lot of VGA copies of EarthBound in the past – I can’t really tell if this is the same one as previous ones or if this is a new one that’s popped up. I think the earlier ones tended to have higher prices, at least.
Next is what appears to be a brand new copy of EarthBound selling for $900:
In the past year or two, we’ve seen some brand new copies of EarthBound sell for $1000 or even $6000. If you’re willing to plunk down that much money for a copy, definitely be sure to do your homework and ask the sellers lots of questions first. You can also find a lot of details like how the game was packaged, what came in a complete set, etc. over on Game Swag here.
Contrary to popular belief, EarthBound carts aren’t really that rare – there are tons of them out there for sale. They just fetch high prices because of the growing interest of the game since its release. New copies are definitely rare though. So if you’re rich/crazy/awesome enough, this is a good chance to get one!
