Subject: Brand new in box?

I have an original Vectrex system, brand new in the box. The box has the original seal, price tag still on it...the works. It belonged to a friend of mine who's stepfather collected all kind of electronic stuff, never opening most of it. I bought it from my friend with the intention to sell it...however, I'm split on if I should open it. Would you recommend leaving it sealed since that is probably rare to come across or should I open it so I can photograph and show the contents in an item listing?

Thanks for your time :)

If it's sealed, I would leave it sealed. It's more valuable, especially as a collector's item, if it remains sealed. If you plan on selling it, sell it sealed and "As Is". Don't open it for a listing. Those in-the-know, know.
don't open/unseal depreciate it, just so any trolling ignoramus can 'think about' buying it...
