Sonic the Hedgehog: an auction and more than a doubt

The cartridge for Sega Genesis, the American version of the Sega Mega Drive, from Sonic the Hedgehog it was therefore sold for well $ 430,500 on Goldin Auctions with a lot of certification MOON. One of the most important classification societies recently ended up in the center of controversy as its co-founder was accused of having manipulated the market of the major retrogaming titles.

Doubts were then expressed by one of the creators of the blue hedgehog, Yuji Naka, directly from his profile Twitter who wondered if we were faced with yet another case of fraud. It also seems to be of the same opinion youtuber Karl Jobs who talked about the affair during one of his latest videos. MOON, for its part, stated the following:
