Lady Finds Nintendo Game Worth $15,000 at Thrift Shop

 |  |  |  |  |  April 18, 2013


It pays to hunt for treasure at thrift stores sometimes. Here’s proof. A North Carolina woman spent $7.99 on an old Nintendo game at a Goodwill store. Nothing unusual there. The unusual part – the game was Stadium Events, one of the rarest titles ever sold, and worth a cool $15,000.

She took it and other games to local shop Save Point Video Games, where it excited owner Wilder Hamm:

“Normally in this business, we try not to show our cards,” Hamm said. “We’re not in the business of ripping people off but, you show that kind of excitement, they start expecting a mountain of money.”

Hamm couldn’t make a reasonable offer for the cartridge, which was in good condition – with the original box and manual, so the woman will put it on eBay where she’s likely to make some good money.

You never know what you might find at the thrift shop…
