Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and even Danny Wood wouldn't buy this piece of crap. Sure, it's a piece of gaming history, but it's also just some glossy paper taped around a box.

What it's supposed to be is a prototype box for a New Kids on the Block NES game. No game. Just a box. The seller says that it was a prototype that was originally in the possession of a "major video game magazine." From the box, it seems like the Kids were hangin' tough with publisher Parker Brothers. Too bad PB fudged that one up. They could have been gazillionaires.

So get this: The box has been relisted on eBay. It just sold for over $500, says Siliconera, but the winner didn't pay. Imagine that. It's back up to over $50 now. I'd maybe drop $50 if the game was inside. Maybe. Only if it had The Right Stuff in it.
