Video Games Roundup – Oct 19, 2021

Welcome to Video Games Insider. We use Moneyball tactics to discover undervalued, mispriced, and hidden gems in Fractional Investing.

The format for these updates is evolving over the next couple of weeks, so please do give feedback.

Last week’s performance

Fractional secondary markets

Mostly down last week as only one asset traded up (Pokemon Yellow in Rally, 20%). This asset class has been surging, so it may have just been profit-taking.

All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

At Auction

As mentioned last week, Heritage is running a significant auction through the end of October. Keep a close eye on the early run Zelda. If it surpasses $1.2m or so, that’s very good news for the gaming space. Anything under $800k could signal a bear market even for blue chips.

You’ll also want to watch the Super Mario 64 items mentioned above. We want the WATA 9.6 A++ to pass $500k. has an auction running at the minute as well – it ends today and Wednesday. Some of the cooler items include:
