Nintendo fans and game collectors, listen up: an exceedingly rare game is available right now on eBay.


An eBay user recently posted Nintendo World Championships on the online-auction site. The cart, if real as the seller claims, is one of only 116 copies ever made, making it one of the most exclusive titles ever made for the Nintendo Entertainment System.


Nintendo World Championships was part of a special event the company held in 1990 for gamers to compete in Super Mario, Rad Racer, and Tetris. The game was never actually sold to consumers on store shelves.


As of this writing, Nintendo World Championships is bidding out at $5,500 with another day to go. The cart is in somewhat poor condition, but the owner says that it's still in working condition.


According to the BBC, which earlier reported on the auction, a copy in better condition sold at a charity auction in 2011 for $11,000.
