Man, shipping will suck ;)



The collection, if parted, is worth $60K+ on the low low end. If he had the time and inclination, it'd be wise to do them at minimum by library, or preferrably in mini bundles. ...spent 32 years building the collection and wants to be done in a day, if he doesn't have regrets selling it, he'll likely have regrets leaving thousands of dollrs on the table.

Anyone else skeptical about this? I don't see any indication that the seller is the real Guinness holder, seeing that he is a game collector with only '4' feedback on GameGavel?

I'd like to see a hand written note in the same fashion as we do here on Racketboy, because anyone can get their hands on those pictures.

That's not actually a problem because that 98% of games aren't worth playing anyway.... :lol:

Obviously he could get a ton more if he split it by library or what not, the number of people who can afford, but perhaps more importantly want to house that many games is a very very very very very very very limited number.

I've seen a lot of assumptions in this thread as to why he's selling this now. But the auction says:
I simply have an immediate family and extended family that have needs that need to be addressed. While I do not wish to part with these games, I have responsibilities that I have made to others and this action is how I will help meet them.

HE PROBABLY ONLY BOUGHT THESE TO SELL THEM AT A PREMIUM AFTER OBTAINING THE RECORD. WHAT A DISINGENUOUS RESELLER FLIPPER DIRTBAG SCUMBALL.
