How rare is "Panic Restaurant" (NES)?

The only solace I got out of the ordeal was that she had left a bunch of NES games at our apartment and I took them with me when I moved out.
Most were commons but fun none the less (Blades of Steel, Techmo Bowl, etc.) but I noticed Panic Restaurant was included.
The game itself is in really good condition (mint label) with no markings on the cartridge. I know it works because I tried playing the game for a few hours before I looked for more information on eBay.
It appears to be rare but I'm not sure how rare. In the last year or so I would say the number of active listings have gone from 10-15 to less then five.
I have no need for money but I was wondering are NES games worth holding on to or is their a bubble that is bound to burst?

82% Rarity... loose game is values at $50+. Good find.
Here's a guy trying to get $600 for a boxed one in only "good" condition:
Tried and succeeded apparently. I would say people are crazy, but I once paid $900 for an action figure...

If I needed money I would sell it though. I have a boxed Panic Restaurant and Little Samson I've been holding onto for a long while.

Mine was a loose cartridge in fairly decent shape. Bought it in a set for $10.
I think I mentioned it in the 2012 Yard Sale thread
Sold within 12 hours of posting it with a BIN price....
Sold for $325 in May 2012. Found my sell confirmation in my email.
