Oldest Monopoly Game Sells For Six Figures
The oldest version of the American classic board game Monopoly was sold last week for $144,900. It’s pretty amazing that this set has survived over 75 years with the original cards and monopoly money.
The set was one of 5,000 made in 1933 by Charles Darrow, the purported inventor of Monopoly, and is the only one to have survived to this day.
The dog-eared set is made out of a piece of oilcloth and is in the form of the original circular shape that is 33 inches in diameter.
