A Paper Mario (Nintendo 64) box and manual has recently sold for a little over $47 on eBay. Here's a few key details for paper-mario-02that auction:

  • The box was damaged on the top right corner.

  • The seller removed the original cardboard cartridge holder and included a damaged Sentinel 64 box protector.

  • The manual isn't in mint condition.

Overall: The winning bidder was ripped off... because I've seen similar auctions with an unmodified box sell for a much cheaper price!

I don't understand why anyone would pay an absurd amount of money for a modified video game box?
