I wonder how many of those 1700 he actually has up and running at a given time?
Very interesting video.
This video just popped into my YouTube feed. I was shocked when I hadn’t seen it linked here before I posted it here.
Has anyone been to this collection? Is the owner on pinside? I think he said it was called the pacific pinball museum
Many of us pinsiders are faithful volunteers for Mike and Melisa (and D'arci, David and Larry!), it is undoubtedly the largest pinball collection in the world with thousands of games set up and working, with at least that many not working.
Unfortunately the largest part of the collection is not open to the public due to fire regulation issues with the city (long story, thanks Ghost Ship!) it is such a huge collection that I ride my skateboard to get around it.
The crazy part is that several old timers have recently donated seriously large collections to Mike and the PPM so it's only getting bigger by the year. I know one "well known" collection of over 1,200 games is starting to slowly move to the warehouse.
If I get time I'll post a vid of me skating through the games.
Donate to PPM! Visit their Webster st location in Alameda CA that IS open to the public Tuesday through Sunday!
Go there now!!
