The item, lot 318, is being offered in Hansons Auctioneers’ October 19 Toy Auction with a whopping estimate of £1,500-£2,000.
David Wilson Turner, head of Hansons Toy/Gaming department, said: “Its rarity is down to the fact that it was given as a prize to winners of a four-player E3 1997 StarFox Tournament in America.
“The very first N64 Gold controller came from that 1997 E3, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia.
“The controller is one of very few in existence and has an embossed golden 64; in the centre of the controller. It’s super cool, gold on the front and black on the back.
