    Description

    Spyro The Dragon - Wata 9.4 A+ Sealed [Sweepstakes Ad, Sony Security Label, First Production], PS1 Sony 1998 USA. Heritage sold a Wata 9.6 example of the first production of this game back in July for over $30,000 all-in, and we think this 9.4 copy could very well come close to matching that sum. The first production advertised a sweepstakes on the back of the box that ran through the end of 1999, making it a rare version of the game. Plus, the game marks the first entry in the series, and, with that, the first appearance of Spyro himself. Sony's aim for the PlayStation was to mostly market to older kids (and adults), but Spyro's main mission was to appeal to the younger crowd (who still wanted their console to seem cooler and edgier than the N64). It definitely worked; Sony sold a significant number of consoles thanks to this spunky little dragon. The music was composed by Stewart Copeland, drummer for the popular rock band The Police. Wata notes, "SIAE import sticker".
