Top 10 useless things bought for a lot of money in the 21st century

2. Copy of Super Mario 64
In many ways, this game set the course for 3D platform games, and to this day it still regularly appears on “best games of all time” lists.

But Super Mario 64 is no longer young – it’s over 25 years old and available in re-releases and ports. This casts doubt on the need to buy a $1,560,000 sealed Mario cartridge, even though the box was in perfect condition. Prior to the start of auction at Heritage Auctions, the lot was valued at a modest $100,000.

Undoubtedly, for the video game collector, this item is one of the most holy grails imaginable. However, all he got for a million and a half dollars was a plastic cartridge, a cardboard box, and a quick start guide.

1. Window with frame
This is the most expensive window in the world and perhaps the most useless thing sold for a fantastic amount. The whole merit of this window is that Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin of American President John F. Kennedy, once stood behind it.
A collector from the Netherlands purchased this item on eBay for $3 million.
