You might want to check the attic in your parents' house because your old toys, games, and collectibles could be worth a TON of money now just like one guy did when he traded in his old NES game for $10,000!
Apparently at Pink Gorilla Games in Seattle, WA a guy came in with a Nintendo World Championships 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and asked about how much he could get for it and when the store associate looked it up, they were shocked to tell them the value of the game.
The Nintendo World Championships 1990 cartridge was given to winners of the Nintendo World Championships in 1990 and came with a remix of Rad Racer, Super Mario Bros., and Tetris, which is why it is so valuable.
You would think the guy would maybe hold onto the game after he found out it's worth, but I totally understand trading in something you have no feelings toward and making bank!
The even MORE interesting thing is that less than 24 hours after the person sold the cartridge it was purchased by a private party for $13,000! The game is said to be worth $15,000 to $20,000, but I feel sorry for the cashier who had to ring both of those transactions up and probably ran out of money!
