    First Wata Certified 9.8 in Sealed Condition Ever Offered at Public Auction

    Super Mario Bros. 2 - Wata 9.8 A+ Sealed [Rev-A, Round SOQ, First Production], NES Nintendo 1988 USA. Compared to all of the previously offered copies featured in our auctions, this is far and away the most pristine example that has ever come through our doors of any variant. In fact, even the copies we've offered from later production runs can't hold a candle to this one! Until now, the finest copy we've offered of this round seal of quality was a Wata 9.2 A copy we sold more than a year ago in our 2020 May Signature Auction. Anecdotally, it would seem that sealed copies of this variant are scarcer than the oval seal of quality versions, especially those in near mint, or effectively mint, condition. Undoubtedly, this copy could easily be categorized as a trophy piece in practically any collection.
