This cartridge scored a 9.0 sealed copy is also an early production of the game, its first run when the game first came out in 1987, labeling it a “No Rev-A”. Afterwards, there’s been revisions and updates to the packaging, labeled as a “Rev-A” released in early 1988. Those common cartridges can sell for $50,400 according to Heritage Auction.
