According to the eBay seller who sold the cartridge; "Only 26 Gold carts were made for the Nintendo Power Magazine NWC giveaway. This is known as the infamous "GOLD" NWC cart and are super super rare. Still, case in point, this is an authentic, original NWC Gold cart from the Nintendo Power Magazine championships giveaway back in the early 90s. The cart plays just fine and will be worth much much more in the future as no one actually knows if all 26 gold carts are still around."

Just last week The Mirror reported another rare Nintendo (cartridge) had fetched $100,000 (on eBay). But the sale fell-through after the buyer retracted their winning-bid, claiming their purchase had been made by mistake. That game has since been relisted on eBay with a buy it now price of $65,000.
