High Ticket Video Game Items
When dealing with video game collectibles, one will quickly notice the big ticket items. Why is that?
We always want to know what’s the most expensive art, or most expensive car, or even most expensive video game.
VG collectibles can range anywhere in the thousands to tens of thousands of dollars. Video game libraries have gone past the $200,000 mark which is an outlier, but nonetheless a complete console game library fetched that much.
So with all this talk about expensive video game collectibles, I thought I’d skim through some high ticket items.
Most Expensive Video Game Boxers
Don’t ask how I found this auction, but you’re seeing it now and are probably thinking why so much for a boxer. Well, most high ticket items are priced by the seller, which always is subjective given their rarity and condition. I think these boxers are way overpriced like most of you. But if you’re a hardcore GTA fan you’re probably saying these are the HOLY GRAIL of all Grand Theft Auto collectibles :).
Let’s hope not.
What I’m really glad to see is that there’s a “story” to these boxers.
If you’re charging a lot for something like a boxer, you’ll want to back it up with a nice story which is what most sellers do not do and that hurts their potential sale.
These are very rare GTA 3 promotional boxers, which could be won by winning a contest. They are unworn and clean.
I listed them as “used”, because I think that “brand new” doesn’t correspond to the item, which was released more than a decade ago.
This is a genuine promotional item from when Grand Theft Auto III was originally released back in 2001-2002.
The story of these boxers:
Back then “Rockstar Games”, “Take-Two Interactive” ,”Cidiverte” (Take-Two’s acquired company in Italy) and “Game Republic” (Italian magazine) had a cool contest.
In this contest you could provide a proof that you are worse than Claude (GTA 3 main character) by sending a proof of “disobeying the law” to Game Republic magazine.
The winner of this contest received these boxers. It is unknown how many boxers were ever produced.
These boxers have GTA 3 logo, Cidivente.it logo and a bat with ‘What-a-bat!!!’ text.
Are these boxers legit?:
“Cidivente” is an Italian distributor of videogames in Italy acquired by “Take-Two Interactive” in 2000. You can find the proof on their home page “cidiverte.it” by clicking on “British flag” near “CHI SIAMO” text (photo below).
If you click on the link above, you’ll be able to see that the seller shows you where you can go to get more information on the boxers. He’s currently asking $452 for the GTA boxer.
If you’re dying to own it, you can always submit a best-offer :).
