    First CIB Copy Ever Offered at Heritage Above a Wata 8.0

    Ghosts 'N Goblins - Wata 9.2 CIB [Hangtab, First Production], NES Capcom 1986 USA. We haven't offered a single sealed copy of this game since the November 2019 Carolina Collection auction, nor have we offered a complete-in-box example of this game with a grade higher than -- Wata 8.0?! This presents a rare opportunity to secure a copy of this game in an elite level of preservation. These factors alone make this a can't-miss lot, but the cherry on top is definitely the first production variant. All of the subgrades for this example are absolutely stunning, and the box is in incredible shape (a Wata 9.0!). However, one certainly shouldn't look past the grades for the other components as well; both the manual and the cartridge boast a grade of Wata 9.4. Anyone who has ever tried to assemble a high-grade complete in box game with properly married parts will likely recognize just how difficult these grades must have been to achieve.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
