    The Legend of Zelda - Wata 8.5 CIB [NES TM, No Rev-A, First Production], NES Nintendo 1987 USA. Complete-in-box copies of The Legend of Zelda in high grade are tough to find as once these games are opened up, they typically get used and abused! In fact, this Wata 8.5 is tied for the highest example we've ever offered. This was the first game in the expansive The Legend of Zelda series, and it featured the first appearance of Link, Princess Zelda, and Ganon. This iconic title, housed in a gold cartridge, introduced many in the west to the concept of role-playing video games. Further, it launched an entire franchise with cartoons, action figures, comic books, and much more.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
