About Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!

One of the most broadly popular video games that doesn’t fit neatly into an existing mega-franchise such as Pokemon, Halo, or Zelda, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! is a tremendously fun boxing game that requires endless hours of memorization in order to truly master. Mike Tyson, who was not yet the heavyweight boxing champion of the world, reportedly received only a flat $50,000 from Nintendo for a three year likeness agreement. When the deal expired Tyson’s name was removed from the game, the title was changed back to its original arcade title of simply “Punch-Out!!”, and Tyson was replaced as the final boss by Mr. Dream.

Highly sought after across all grade levels, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! is easily one of the most consistently sought after graded games across all consoles. Despite ostensibly being a sports title, this game carries universal appeal and is in demand from both video game collectors as well as sports collectors just dipping their toes into the video game market. Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! Is a fitting addition to any video game collection, but pairs particularly well in high-level NES and sports collections. An easy to recognize “white bullets” first print as well as an eventual change of the Nintendo seal of quality from round to oval creates multiple interesting variants for collectors to seek as well.
