Way back in my day it was me lamenting mom throwing out my boxes of baseball cards. Hopefully you took better care of your video games.

AP tells us that a guy in Reno found an unopened copy of the 1998 video game Kid Icarus by Nintendo in the attic of his boyhood home. The item went for $38.95 through a catalog store. So, he figures he might as well put it up for bid during an online auction, thinking he could snag a few hundred bucks with a little luck.

But a video game expert with the online auction firm says it could sell for up to $10,000! Just like some of my vintage baseball cards, no doubt. :-) Yeah, I know, we all say that.    Well, whatever the amount ends up being, the man says he will split the proceeds with his sister. We wish them top dollar!
