Encapsulated and graded 9.2 with a “First-Party H-Seam” seal rating of A by WATA Games. Offered here is a sealed and graded copy of "Super Mario Bros." developed and published by Nintendo for their Nintendo Entertainment System. Directed by Shigeru Miyamoto with the iconic score created by Koji Kondo, "Super Mario Bros." was an NES launch title that sold over 50 million copies and singlehandedly resurrected the home console market after the 1983 collapse caused by Atari that almost killed the nascent home console industry. The platform game featuring Mario and Luigi and their quest to free Princess Toadstool from the evil clutches of Bowser launched the "Mario" franchise and cemented "Super Mario Bros." in pop culture and is considered one of the greatest video games of all time.

This presented copy features a hangtab, an "NES-GP" code, a "NO NES TM," "No REV-A" label, and a round Nintendo "Seal of Quality" on the box that indicates that this copy is an early production run and was produced in early 1987. Sealed early production copies of "Super Mario Bros." are always in high demand, especially copies with the exceptional grade of 9.2 and the attractive seal grade of A. "Super Mario Bros." is easily the single most important video game ever made as it revolutionized home console gaming and was responsible for resurrecting the entire home console market. Its importance in video games and pop culture cannot be underestimated or denied. This copy is an earlier and rarer print than the copy of "Super Mario Bros." that recently sold for $2 million. This offered copy is a testament to the franchise's success and a stunning specimen from Nintendo's golden age.

1985 NES Nintendo (USA) "Super Mario Bros." (Early Production) Two Code Hangtab Sealed Video Game - WATA 9.2/A
