Photographic evidence of my collection of 250 systems, related software, peripherals, literature and more...

Well, after going almost a year after moving into a bigger house, I've finally finished unpacking my whole collection of vintage and modern computer and videogame systems, software, literature and more. I didn't bother to go into much photographic detail or move anything on the shelves (or describe anything in the photos at this point - sorry). Some point soon, I"ll do a video feature on this stuff, then begin to go into much greater detail with articles and in-depth video features. Regardless, this is a huge weight off my back to finally get this stuff out to a reasonable point of access for me. Just in time too, as I needed to start taking photos again for my upcoming book anyway and the publisher all but threatened to take a hit out on me...

The list of my systems here, where yes, I do stretch the definition a bit of what constitutes a "system".

The link to Flickr with all (185, linear) the photos, here.

Questions? Want to see something in more detail? Let me know.

Oops, I added an additional 17 photos as I noticed I missed one side of shelves...

Wow

The mother lode! So, Bill, how much do you reckon all this is worth?

I was playing that game with my wife earlier. Very rough estimate, maybe $25,000 - $30,000. It's hard to say really. Someday when I catalog and database it all I can probably assign realistic figures and know for sure.

it has got to be more then that...

Bill,
It has got to be worth more than that, my own miniscule collection (when compared to yours) is worth about half of that so make sure you're not under-insured!
cheers, Mark
