Not $50 as in fifty dollars. No, this sumbitch got fifty thousand for it.
There was absolutely nothing special about this thing. It was a standard fair NES with 42 games, a Nintendo branded carrying bag, 2 controllers, a Zapper, an original Game Genie and bunch of other stuff. He originally wanted $35,000 to "pay bills," but he walked away with $15,000 more than what he hoped for.
My physical NES collection stands at 5 deep (4 if you don't count the Ninja Gaiden that doesn't work). I had plans on rebuilding my catalog up after getting rid of them all those years ago, but seeing how Guy got $1,190 for each game if you don't factor in the NES itself (which has a "Keepin' it Old Skool" Nintendo sticker on it), I should just buy a bunch of NES games, package them together and say I need "food".
Check after the break to see the ridiculously low-key games he sold with it.

In no particular order - well, in the order on the listing, here are the games. Seriously, there's nothing of extreme value here.
