Super Mario Bros. is hailed as the savior of the video game industry. Following the “Great Video Game Crash of 1983,” the future looked bleak until the 1985 release of the Nintendo Entertainment System and its original 17-game “Black Box” series. The series featured “what you see is what you get” package imagery, a stark contrast from previous boxes with appealing artwork that looked nothing like the graphics in the actual games. From this series came Super Mario Bros. and the debut of Nintendo’s most enduring characters, Mario and Luigi, in their first non-arcade game. Super Mario Bros. has sold over 40 million copies and is ranked by TIME magazine as the 8th Best Video Game of All Time. The retro gaming market is surging, with the New York Times reporting a scramble by retailers and console makers to meet soaring customer demand for all things retro.

“Super Mario Bros. is one of the most iconic video game franchises in the world, and well-maintained copies of the original game are now coveted by collectors.”
