Return of the Rare Cartridge

Every so often I come across some sort of ridiculous game related material on eBay.   Sometimes its Chrono Trigger going for two thousand dollars, or maybe just A Link to the Past going for two hundred.   I don't see many of these popping up though.

For Sale:

Up for Auction is a RARE Donkey Kong Competition Cartridge for the Super Nintendo SNES system. In very good condition with no flaws, looks brand new and mint. Comes with original box, dust cover, and cart

The Donkey Kong Competition cartridge is a very rare version of Donkey Kong Country used in some video game related competitions (as you probably guessed) like the Blockbuster Video World Video Game Championship II and the Nintendo Powerfest in 1994.   The cartridges themselves were obtained by some of the winners in the Nintendo Powerfest competition, and the ones used in the Blockbuster Championship were later sold off through Nintendo Power.

The game itself is a modified version of Donkey Kong Country where players only play to get as many points as possible before time runs out.   Competition or contest cartridges like these are usually games fetching the most money on eBay from the NES and SNES eras.   I think the most expensive NES game is the World Championship cartidge.   Oh, yeah it is.
