    Nice collection! I am jealous!
    I wish I still had every console I have ever owned in my possession.

    lol I was just thinking I hope he has that insured. Heck with a collection that big it would have to be stored in a fireproof room in the house with a keypad combination to get in. Like a panic room or something....

    Yes we both believe its worth something and it is valued at 800k.

    If you disagree then you need to post something to disprove it....
