The original owner (anonymous), who purchased it in 1986, had this to say:
"It stayed in the bottom of my office desk this whole time since the day I bought it. I never thought anything about it."
The game was professionally graded by WataGames and scored 9.6/A+. It is being called "the finest copy known to have been professionally graded for auction."
It sold for $660,000 which blows the previous high score (price) of $114,000, which was what a 1985 copy sold for last July. That was the most ever paid for video game until this copy sold last Friday.
