I was going to list it for $3000. Knowing, it's only worth what
someone is willing to pay !

Do some backsearch on the prices of this in the last 6months.(IMHO) Its
not worth $3k at all. I had the chance to pick a very nice one up
locally with a monitor issue for $400 and passed. These people deal
with this kind of stuff on a regular basis.Please do your research
before you post or you will constantly get these kinds of remarks.

Good luck selling it.

Pick up only for a Mario Brothers at $1000 price point is a wee bit
expensive. Maybe $300-$400 with new side art. There was a Reactor and
Death Race that went for $1500 on eBay and those are rare. Do you have
pictures of it at least?

I'm not trying to be an ass, but not even eBay's most ignorant would
pay $3k for a Mario Bros. In fact, it's HIGHLY unlikely you'd ever get
$1k for it on eBay, as that game doesn't seem to fetch more than $400
(tops). Factor in your "no shipping" rule, and it's even more
hopeless.

I'd say maybe $300-$400 depending on condition - $100 is a bit low Mark.

Why would you waste your time trying to sell a $300 game to collectors, who
know better, for $1000. Just put it on ebay and waste someone else's time.

You do realize that you could get one of the new combo games from a
distributor with a slight discount for around $3k. Then you get mario, DK
and DK jr...do your homework or put it on eBay. Good luck.

Hi,
1K is definatly steep.
I could buy a Playchoice 10 and get ALL the mario brother games for
about...
$350.....
AND I can still play Contra, Duck Hunt and few other older games...
OR
I could by a Nintendo for $35 and play it on my TV.. At the same time I

can sit on my fat ass and drink myself sober.
:]

I think about $350 is the going rate for this game, even in MINT
condition.

Hi,

You are in the wrong place for the 1k price, we are collectors. You
need to find a home owner to get that much, and there is nothing wrong
with that. You can't get folks here to do much but laugh or balk at
1k:)  There were also 2 versions of Mario Bros, the narrow conversion
and the dedicated wide one.

I'll give you 1100 but it must be delivered to antartica and shipping
must be free.

Does anyone have a fairly cheap set of sideart and/or a CPO? (or a
non-rusty CP?) A guy came by my house a few months ago and wanted to
see what games I had.. he got real excited when I showed him my MB. I
told him I had to get $250 for it. He encouraged me to un-bury it (It
is in a shed behind, among other big things, a car that isn't easy to
start and even harder to get out of the shed) and when I finally got it
out and he played it thoroughly, he said he'd give me $150. After some
browbeating I finally agreed to come down to 200, but he wouldn't
budge. What an A**hole, making me go to all that trouble for
absolutely nothing.

See, you should have started the price at $1000. It would have saved
you the hassle of digging it out. He would have left right away.

This is true, but I don't think anyone out there is willing to pay even the
$1k for it.

You *may* be able to get the $1k for it ONLY if it includes free shipping
AND a 60-day warranty. Other than that, it'll be collecting dust.

I played Mario Bros on the NES and (I believe) the C-64 as well.
