    Thanks,

    There will only be online bidding for approximately 100 items. All the rest of the stuff will be live bidding at the NJ location.

    I got rid of most of the Heathkit stuff maybe 5 years back. All that remains from that original portion of my collection is a nice Zenith Z-100 with accessories and boxed software (including games), which will all be in the auction.

    Hi, all. There have been some new updates related to the May 31st auction of my massive videogame and computer collection via Bodnar's Auction Sales. This will likely be the last before I do a final visit there prior to the auction date. Here's the link: http://armchairarcade.com/perspectiv...-in-edison-nj/

    Kotaku also did a nice write-up on the collection auction: https://kotaku.com/colossal-vintage-...kin-1825777525

    If anyone has any questions, please ask, and, if you're in a generous mood, please help spread the word. Thanks!

    When will they post a list of the 100 items going to eBay? I am only interested in a few items and donít want to waste a day at the auction of the things I am looking for will be online only.

    It's not eBay. About a week before the date (it's coming up), they will post about 100 of the better items (mixed, between hardware and software) on the online auction site they use. I'll post about it again once that part is live, but for now, here are some more details: https://www.bodnarsauction.com/may-31-gaming-collection

    That is a magnificient collection you had there. Kudos. i also appreciate your remaining collection. I think you kept hold of the right stuff. Personally I would have probably added the Coleco ADAM to that, but that is just me.

    OK, everyone, the final details for my massive personal vintage and modern videogame and computer auction set for May 31, 2018 in Edison, NJ (online too!), have been posted. Please share if you're able and thanks once again for all the support.

    Although descriptions are not best, don't forget there are 64 lots from my collection that you can bid online, including TG-16/PC Engine, VideoBrain, APF M1000/IM, Jaguar Pro Controller, MSX2, Neo Geo, etc.! https://bit.ly/2L1L2Wd
    Details + live event: https://bit.ly/2LB3KVO

    I can obviously provide clarifications for any descriptions that are off or incomplete.

    Some things will no doubt go for more than expected, some less. Either way, it's OK. Fortunately, this is not about maximizing my sales.

    Bill, hopefully you'll get more reports - I just woke up after spending 12 hours at that auction and driving home with a wagon stuffed to the brim. The vcf posse was there as well as a few other collectors. Hopefully it worked out well on your end, I was thrilled to be able to flesh out my own collection. That was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime event!
