Black Friday finds: $12,000 sealed yellow-boxed SNES game

Or a $600 copy of SFII

You could hit the stores and get those $30 copies of EA games from earlier this year. Or! Or you could go way back to the Super Nintendo era and get the kids something they'd really love. 

Actually, kids wouldn't even play a Super Nintendo. Stupid kids.

A seller on eBay has this rare yellow-boxed Super Mario World. It's a bummer about the PAL part. The price is also a bummer at the USD equivalent $12,747. And that for that money they won't ship to the USA. I'm sure you can talk them into it, though. Here's why:

This game should really be in a museum as I believe it is likely to be one of very few, if not the only one of its kind. It is a real shame I need the money because it is my feeling that this game will sell for more than a million one day in the future (probably a few decades time!)

More than a million, guys. 53 bids already.

If that's too rich for your blood, try this metal-boxed SNES copy of Street Fighter II Turbo. It's only about $600. Sealed.
