    Kid Icarus - Wata 9.2 CIB [Hangtab, First Production], NES Nintendo 1987 USA. As far as early NES games are concerned this is an incredibly rare find. While the possibility that a previously unknown sealed hangtab example could be discovered does exist, it is relatively improbable based on what we've heard from collectors. That aside, one could very well make the argument that assembling (or coming across) a properly married complete in box copy is just as notable of a feat. In fact, just look at those subgrades - a Wata 9.6 box!? That's even hard to achieve for sealed games!

    We have heard from collectors who have actively sought out a sealed example of this variant for many years who haven't even heard the faintest whisper of a possible lead. Despite all of the fresh finds that have been discovered in recent years, this still rings true. With all of this in mind, this is a lot that collectors who are typically "sealed exclusive" should seriously consider. An immaculately preserved, complete in box example like this may very well be the best copy one could reasonably hope to secure, sealed or otherwise. After all, why let the lack of a little plastic be the one factor that stops you?
