Don't trust eBay prices unless you're looking at sold listings. People can ask whatever they want, leading to all kinds of nutzo listings that will never sell. (Just try looking at what some people ask for Disney VHS tapes! Despite the fact that they can be found for much much less.)

Just looking around, it looks like the game *is* quite rare, so I expect it should be worth a decent amount to the right person. The most valuable Game Gear game I know of is Panzer Dragoon Mini which normally goes for about $200-$300 complete. But that game has the collectability-advantage of being part of a somewhat well-known series. I don't know what Pete Sampras Tennis might go for or how many Game Gear completionists are out there, but I'd *guess* it would end up going for less than $500, rather than the $4,600 that guy on eBay is asking for.

Regardless, congrats on finding something rare!
