My Tunnel Hunt for your Omega Race cocktail

I pick the most interesting days to make trades. This week we had some awesome weather, but I made plans to trade my Craigslist deal Tunnel Hunt for an Omega Race cocktail the day the rain came in with some fury. Everything worked out ok, close the chapter in my Tunnel Hunt saga.

NOS Black Widow Conversion Kit up for sale on eBay

Back in March of 2008 Andy S. had just started down the collecting path, and found what he called an ‘Ops Graveyard’.

Today, he put that jewel up for sale on eBay, a NOS Black Widow Conversion Kit. (more…)

Super Pac-man for $75 Muskegon Craigslist

Over the weekend I was in my hometown in Michigan for my nephew’s first birthday. The deals lately on Craigslist have been stupid crazy, so I actually have not been following other neighboring states as much – for good reason. But it just so happened there was a Super Pac-man for $75 in Muskegon the weekend I was home! Wow, talk about timing. (more…)

NOS Pole Position II Sideart

A resourceful DJ / collector out in Fredericksburg, VA has quite the amazing photo album of arcade stuff. Many games, parts, and pieces of artwork have cycled through his hands. This past week it was a set of NOS Pole Position II sideart that sold almost immediately. (more…)
