Fan discovers sealed copy of Nintendo Power #1

Talk about playing with power!

Usually when there’s talk of holy grails in gaming, people discuss various game releases. Titles that are hard to come by and in mint condition. Today is a little different, as a fan seems to have discovered a pristine copy of the finest videogame literature there is.

One lucky fan went digging through their old gaming goodies at their parents’ house and discovered what appears to be a sealed copy of the first issue of Nintendo Power. We’re talking about the very first issue tucked inside the special envelope it was sent out in. You can get a peek at that below.


The envelope is in pretty great shape, but it’s not perfect. That said, it’s still sealed, so the copy of Nintendo Power inside has a very good chance of being in tip-top shape. Now the lucky fan has to decide if they should leave the magazine as-is, or open up the envelope to see what sort of shape the issue is in! What would you do in this situation?

That’s cool. Certainly a collectors item.

I have fond memories of that envelope. Still have my copy of issue 1, but sadly the envelope is long gone.
