    Highest Graded Copy of Spyro the Dragon Ever Offered at Public Auction

    Spyro The Dragon - Wata 9.8 A+ Sealed, [No Sweepstakes, Sony Security Label, Mid-Production], PS1 Sony 1998 USA. If we had to write up a shortlist of keys for the PlayStation this would definitely be near (or at) the top of the list. For those who are just now joining us, copies with the black PlayStation logo down the side are colloquially referred to as "black label" copies because the Greatest Hits version had a lime green label. More often than not, black label copies are seen by collectors as the most desirable versions because they were the earliest copies produced. The first production of this title advertised a sweepstakes on the back of the box that ran through the end of 1999. Even so, finding a sealed black label copy with or without the ad should be seen as notable feats.
    This 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, 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.
