A new addiction

My story started long ago back in 1982 at the age of five, coincidently the golden age of the arcade. Upon entering my very first arcade I was hooked. Even then as a child I had always promised myself that one day I would have an arcade in my home. I was always a game console collector, but in 1998 I began collecting full size machines. Yeah, pinball was cool but at that time I always felt that they were to expensive compared to being able to obtain an upright game for a couple hundred bucks. So I passed on every opportunity that I had to buy a pin.....boy was that a mistake!!! A few years later in 2009 I began to become more and more interested in pins. I purchased my first one in 2010, a Gottlieb Sure Shot EM. I was officially hooked after that and since I have obtained many more pins. There are lots more to come!!!
