We've dealt with factory sealed Nintendo rarities two decades old this past week, but at least their contents wouldn't throw you into gastric distress. A 22-year-old unopened "Nintendo Cereal System" box just sold for $US207.50, or $US103.75 per cereal.
The Cereal System attracted 22 bids, with the winner going $US2.50 over the top in the final 17 seconds of the auction to claim the tasty prize. He gets two, two, two cereals in one. The Super Mario Bros. Action Breakfast delivers "fruity-flavoured Marios, Super Mushrooms, Goombas, Koopa Troopas, and Bowsers." The Zelda Adventure Bowl o' Sugar and Plastic offers "berry-flavored Links, hearts, boomerangs, keys, and shields."
The seller naturally typed up his marketing in all caps because this is an important message, like HAL at the end of 2010: The Year We Make Contact.
"IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR BEING A 22 YEAR OLD THIN CARDBOARD BOX. ONLY ONE DISCLAIMER IT WOULD NOT BE WISE TO EAT THE CONTENTS OF THIS BOX EVEN THOUGH I NO YOU WILL WANT TO. I THOUGHT ABOUT IT MENY TIMES MY SELF."
