    Contra - Wata 9.2 A+ Sealed [Rev-A, Round SOQ], NES Konami 1988 USA. This is an absolutely stunning example of one of the most iconic third-party titles in the NES library! Several of us in the Heritage offices played this one back in the day, and it's so nice to see what is basically a "brand new" copy of the game! We sold a 9.2 A+ copy of the game for an all-in price of more than $31,000 back in April, so bidding should be strong for this lot as well. Contra is a port of the 1987 Konami arcade game, but it found its real audience at home on the NES. It is the first game in the popular Contra series, and it popularized the "Konami Code" that was introduced in Gradius that gave players 30 lives at the beginning of the game. The memorable, action movie-style cover art is by the late, great Bob Wakelin.
