Would you buy a $17,500 videogame?

Sounds crazy really to hear such news of a guy who bought a videogame worth $17,500. Games today worth only about $60 for the premium and newly released titles, while you can buy even cheaper games at around $10 each for the old ones. But would you, I mean would you ever shell out you hard earned cash of $17,500 just to buy an old Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) cartridge?. JJ Hendrix bought the obscure NES game which has about 6 minutes and 21 seconds of gameplay, containing short segments of Super Mario Bros., Tetris and Rad Racer. The ultra rare, gold colored NES game was made exclusively for a Nintendo-sponsored game contest and based on Wikipedia only 26 of these game cartridges were made, and Hendrix considers it as the "Holy Grail" of game collectors. Though for my opinion, it is seemingly outrageous, I think Hendrix hit the mark, since the actual price of it on eBay is about $25,000 cold cash. We may never know what would be its total value in the next 5-10 years in the future. So what do you think? Would it be worth?
