Yeah, I've been watching a lot of his stuff and he had this up for a BIN of $6500 I think so it will be cool to see if it gets anywhere near there.

I would guess definitely. I'd say maybe in the $5k range?

Wasn't this mid $3K last time one was auctioned? I don't keep up with SNES much though.

These are interesting to watch as price points, but this title is pretty abundant sealed for a rare game.

I know several of us on here have this game sealed but does anybody know how many sealed are supposedly out there? I know a case or two was found at a Nintendo garage sale. Atleast I think this is right?? I know several are sealed but it's still is an extremely scarce game. I wonder how many counting cartridges, sealed, and opened boxed copies there are?

Yeah I would be surprised if this went for anything over $3k, but who knows. I'd grade it lower than that 85.

there's probably more sealed ones than loose ones



-------------------------

WTB Cdn sealed black boxes, sealed Cdn first party titles.    I.e. the "mattel" Cdn boxes with both french and english.   Mainly black boxes, zelda, link, and tyson, but let me know what you have.    I am interested in anything I don't already have!

Yeah, I'm guessing most of the loose ones are still hidden away in their exercise bike in storage somewhere.

There was some talk in the day that the title was never actually distributed and that some sealed stock was found and sold but there was never any proof either way as far as I could tell. I'm guessing it probably did get distributed just in a very limited fashion like the bike. Anyone hear anything about this? I'm digging up like a 12 year old rumour here.

The story that a stash of this game was found and then sold seems to me to be likely as it would certainly account for the fact there are more sealed copies than CIB or cart only. A limited release to certain gyms along with the Exertainment fitness system might have been the only way this game would have made it to the public and I don't believe it ever had an official retail release, such a niche market would make that pretty pointless.

Pretty much what I know about it also. I think I read that on Digital Press. I remember seeing carts going for $150 - $250. Then this one account had several sealed copies starting at $500 ea.

Oh yeah lots o drama rama there. 

A Nintendo employee bought a large stash of them at the Nintendo garage sale. He was calling me on the phone during the sale asking me what to buy during the auction portion.  The employee was later fired for selling this stuff. He accused another DP collector of ratting him out and said messages between him and a specific collector were used as evidence against him. He was fired for conduct unbecoming of a Nintendo employee. The collector denied having anything to do with it basically saying that why would I want to have him fired when he was selling me this stuff. In truth this employee would make a horrible spy if he wasnt supposed to be selling this stuff. He had a website set up with the items he had for sale. 

Someone then called the company that produced the game and claimed that the company sttill had several copies of this game for sale. Making it a released game to some but a not sold in stores title for others.
