Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - Wata 9.4 A+ Sealed [Rev-A, Round SOQ, Mid-Production], NES Nintendo 1987 USA. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest, Wata-certified copy of this variant that has ever been offered at public auction at the time of writing this description. In fact, this is the first copy of this variant to come through the halls of Heritage with a grade higher than Wata 8.0 A+.
For those who are unfamiliar, the earliest copies of this game feature white bullet points in the list on the cover of the game, rather than orange ones seen on this example. Though sealed copies of the white bullet variety exist, the known population of sealed copies for that variant is so slim one could call it effectively unobtainable. With that in mind, any collector who is always determined to only seek out the first version of a game, especially if they cannot compromise between sealed or complete in box, should consider this copy. After all, coming across such a meticulously preserved example of this variant is a rare opportunity that should not be missed.
