Hello. Welcome to Rarebucky's video game collection blowout. I am selling my ENTIRE video game collection that has taken years to acquire. Everything you will see listed are originals and are either factory sealed or in mint, new condition. If you are a collector or just need a few games to play, you will not find better condition items on ebay. Condition of each game will be described fully.
The item you are bidding on is Bubble Bobble Part 2 (Nintendo). This game is BRAND NEW, FACTORY SEALED and VGA GRADED 85! This is factory sealed with the horizontal seam in back and is an awesome condition copy! This is one of the rarest sealed games for NES and is widely considered a Nintendo grail! This is the only VGA copy of this to ever appear on ebay and is likely the only one you will see for many years - there are only a few known sealed copies in existence! The serial # of this item is 77986587 and can be looked up on the vggrader.com website as each VGA item has a unique number. For those who don't know, VGA (Video Game Authority) is a well-respected authenticator and grader of factory sealed video games. A grade of 85 is a great grade and represents a mint specimen - a SILVER LEVEL grade. From the vggrader.com website:
Silver LevelIf you have never before owned a VGA game they are true museum pieces. They are encased in tamper-proof acrylic cases and will be shipped in their original poly baggies, as pictured. If you want the ultimate way to own a certain sealed game and be certain it is a legitimate factory sealed item, you cannot go wrong with high-graded VGA games! There are many reseals floating around on ebay these days so you need to be sure what you are getting is authentic. I will be auctioning off many of my VGA pieces this week, all of which are fantastic, rare games with high grades. If you are a collector please keep an eye on my auctions!
The VGA Silver level consists of the grades 85, 80+, 80, 75+ and 75. Items which receive grades within this level range from having small flaws to having relatively significant flaws. Silver level grades represent a much larger range of condition than Gold level grades. The highest grade within this level, an 85, could most often be described as being near case fresh, with the lowest grade within this level, a 75, being somewhat shelf worn but still relatively nice. As a general rule, an item which receives the grade of 85 is a fantastic display piece and can often be right on the edge of Gold level condition. The term 'case fresh' is certainly justifiable, as the average item pulled from a sealed case would grade an 85 due to small flaws which occur when items are packaged or shipped from the factory. An item which receives the grade of 80 represents a nice example with minor to moderate flaws apparent upon close inspection. As a generalization, the average item which has spent time on a store shelf being moved around prior to purchase, but has otherwise been handled with relative care over the years may score an 80. The lowest Silver level grade is a 75 which represents an item with significant flaws which are much more evident than flaws visible on items which receive higher Silver level grades. An item which receives the grade of 75 will most often have significant wear, a fairly significant tear in the shrink-wrap, or other moderate to significant wear, but should be free of major flaws which would immediately draw the eye to them at first glance.
For most high grade collectors, an 85 will be satisfactory. For most discriminating collectors, an 80 will be satisfactory. A 75 will most often be satisfactory to those who are not overly concerned with stresses, shrink-wrap tears, and other flaws which do not likely jump out at first glance like the flaws displayed by Bronze level items.
My VGA items will all be packed securely with bubble wrap and shipped in sturdy boxes. Shipping on this item will be done by USPS Priority Mail within the US and will be calculated based on destination. EMS express trackable shipping to Canada will be $29.99 for this item. EMS express trackable shipping to all other international destinations will be $39.99 for this item. These charges are non-negotiable and I will not ship these collector pieces using any other method. If you buy multiple VGA games at once shipping charges will be consolidated based on total weight. As I am selling lots of items at once, please understand that items will be shipped within 7 days of receiving payment.
I accept Paypal only for payment. Due to the high value of this game payment is due immediately upon purchase.
I have been selling items on ebay for over 10 years and have flawless feedback, so buy from a seller you can trust!
As I mentioned above, PLEASE send me a message if you have any questions at all. All items are sold as-is and are guaranteed to be as described. As such, no refunds will be given. Thanks for looking at my auction and good luck!
