Grooveraider commented on Gold Nintendo World Championships Sells for $1...:

Don't get me wrong - the NWC (Gold carts) are rare but c'mon $20,000 rare? There's a few of them. The NWC (Gold carts) is being hailed as the "Holy Grail" of Nintendo game collecting - but that's subjective. I'm an old school Nintendo game collector and I own two classic Nintendo games ( Yoshi's Island & Zelda: Ocarina of Time ) both signed and dated by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto. They're one-of-a-kind signed items. Those are my "Holy grails" but the only difference between me and those folks with $20,000 bank accounts is that I don't have the MEDIA ATTENTION to make my "holy grails" seem more sought after / important. Am I jealous? Why should I be? I feel blessed to have been in the same room with legends such as Shigeru Miyamoto and the late Gunpei Yokoi. And to have a personal photo and signatures of those legends is just phenomenal. I dunno if I could put a price on my experiences. But in the end - I am happy video games are getting the recognition of being valued collectibles like anything else before it. Congrads to JJ Hendricks for owning both NWC carts and the media attention
