    First Sealed Copy of the First Appearance of Sonic Offered by Heritage Since May 2019

    Sonic the Hedgehog - Wata 9.6 A Sealed [Made in Japan, Early Production], Genesis Sega 1991 USA. Over the last few years, we've heard from many a collector whose goal has been to find a sealed copy of this absolutely historic Sega Genesis game. One would certainly think with all of the hype and praise the Sonic the Hedgehog movie generated a few sealed copies would have surfaced, but this has not seemed to have been the case. This is the first opportunity we've had to bring a sealed copy of this game to auction within the last two years. While the wait for this extraordinary opportunity may finally be over, the battle for this copy will be nothing if not fierce and only one collector can claim it as their prize!

    And, oh what a prize it is! This copy's condition surpasses that of the previously offered Wata 9.4 B+ that sold in our 2019 May Signature Auction. At the time, the price that copy achieved was considered incredibly strong--it was the third-highest result for a video game in that sale. However, as they say hindsight is 20/20, and the dry spell has certainly affected the perception of how difficult this game is to come by in sealed condition. This should "run" past that result without any problem!
