    Description

    Super Mario Bros. [Double Gloss, Second Test Market] Wata 6.0 CIB NES Nintendo 1985 USA. What a breathtaking copy of a key NES launch black box title! This particular copy has been double stickered - there is an extra gloss sticker atop the gloss sticker that originally sealed this copy. While there is a theory that Nintendo perhaps received double stickers as returns and resealed them with an extra sticker, another school of thought is that these double stickers simply received an extra sticker when they were being produced. Either way, we've heard from collectors that this is a somewhat unusual variation for black box titles. The gloss sticker indicates this copy is from Nintendo's second test market release, and it bears a Round Seal of Quality sticker. Truly, this is a key game as it is the very first game in the Super Mario Bros. series, designed by Mario's creator, Shigeru Miyamoto. It's also the highest selling title for the NES.
