[Read in a low terrifying voice]: “You are bidding on a complete set of every North American Super Nintendo (SNES) game ever released. This set is the result of half a decade of collecting.”
That’s a listing posted by eBay user kaisetsuna, who has collected all 721 SNES games ever sold at retail in the United States. Bidding starts at $25,000, or about $35 a game. “This set was built by purchasing used carts, instructions and boxes from countless sellers,” he says, so “by no means is this a pristine set.”
In case there’s any doubt that this was a labor of love, and not some kind of cartridge-flipping scheme, the seller posted an alternative means of payment on Reddit: “I know the odds of this are 1:10,000,000 … but I will trade my complete US set for a complete Japanese set … would love to cut out the years of searching.”
