Here's a great video y'all should check out. It's mostly about video games, but goes into coins as well.

I've heard of this guy before, 'Karl Jobst', he's one of the, if not the biggest names in Golden eye 007 speedrunning.

Thanks for sharing. Very informative video.

Very sketchy what is happening with video games. My opinion of Heritage Auctions has certainly decreased.

A very interesting video. One thing I don't understand is that most old videogames were not shrink wrapped in branded wrap so it would be trivial to get a heat sealing wrapping machine and replace the original wrap... It is not like you are restoring lustre to a coin to reverse its ageing back to MS... rewrapping seems trivial when there is such a price premium at stake.

Video game certification is clearly a manipulated market with $10-$20 items going for thousands of dollars or even six and seven digits... It is also interesting that a number of the players are the same as in the origins of coin slabbing. Makes you wonder how much manipulation is in the TPG market these days.

I wonder what is next... Shrink wrapped VHS anyone?
