Stadium Events Video Game: $25,000
Jennifer Thompson was shopping in the dollar DVD section on a spring day back in 2013 at a Goodwill store in North Carolina when she spotted a video game behind the glass counter. It was only going for $7.99 and it was an NES cartridge for “Stadium Events”. It reminded her of an article she read about the rarest games.
She found it was worth thousands of dollars and she prayed the cashier wouldn’t notice he was letting go of a mini-fortune. She drove it to a video game store and showed it to owner Wilder Hamm. “Oh my God!” Hamm yelled. Thompson auctioned the game to an orthodontist for $25,000.
