Rare, Sealed NES Game 'Stadium Events' Sells For $42,000

Old video games might not necessarily look the best, but they represent a piece of gaming history, which is why sometimes older games can fetch a pretty penny. In fact recently it seems that a rare and sealed copy of NES game "Stadium Events" managed to fetch close to $42,000 after being sold to a serious buyer.

According to Kotaku, the seller had originally tried to sell the game on eBay where someone actually won the bid, but apparently the winner of the bid decided not to pay for it. Thankfully the seller was contacted by a "serious buyer" and a deal was struck. What makes Stadium Events so valuable is the fact that the game was only released for a very short period of time before it was pulled and replaced with "World Class Track Meet".
