Yikes. No major steals there I guess.

Pretty nice return on his investment though. The guy has/had nearly 800 games stashed around and he sure didn't pay much for them. It's sad he couldnt grasp that a museum needed to be arcade with working games and a little history and not the other way around. At least someone else gets to enjoy the games now instead of being stacked up like cord wood someplace.

He could have sold half his collection, bought his own building and never had to worry about the landlord kicking him out. Sad ending to what could have been something great.
