So... it's been over a year now, and every single day I wonder; did you open it?

Seriously! EVERYBODY WINS.


In cases like this I agree with this 100%.

For items where there aren't many in such a pristine condition, some people get a lot of joy from owning such unique, NIB items - probably a lot more than the joy you would get from opening it - and are willing to *happily* pay for it.

Sell it, and with the money do whatever you want: which can include getting a non-NIB copy (or not).

I would keep it myself if it had special sentimental value (depends on how you like the person that gave it to you etc.).

Yeah, that's pretty awesome. I'd love to do that.
