Nintendo games donated to Goodwill auctioned off for $30,000

My brother and I made a mistake. Growing up, we had a ton of video games that could have made us very, very rich today.

A classic Super Mario 64 video game sold for over a million dollars not too long ago. I’m sure my brother and I had this video game at some point.

We could literally be millionaires. How frustrating! recently reported that in Hanover, PA, someone dropped off a few video games in a Goodwill that had a ton of value. It was indicated on that video games deposited at Goodwill sold at auction for $30,002.

If the person who gave them knew how much money they just lost, how frustrated do you think they are right now?

I would be furious!

A total of 27 video games were donated to Goodwill. We learned that the bid started at $9.99 and went up to $30,002. It’s very good for Goodwill, that’s for sure.

Only the Nintendo game console fetched $650 at auction, according to

So many other old toys also sell for crazy sums.

Go to your attic or basement and find all those old games. You probably have a gem there that can make you rich.

I know I have an old PS3 in my closet, would it set me back a couple thousand bucks?

It would be nice, but I guess I have to keep it a little longer.
