Flawless copies of classic games can always make a lot of money – a copy of Super Mario 64 recently broke the world record selling for an incredible $ 1.56 million – but when the money they can make ends up going for a good cause, it all feels like standing.

Trained in picking items that could sell well on the Internet, Garcia discovered “a completely new Nintendo system,” as well as 27 NES games still in their original packaging.
The console sold for $ 650, and after some consultation with his knowledgeable son-in-law, Garcia also auctioned the games. Bids started at just $ 9.99 and the final auction price was $ 30,002.
