Joe Magiera is probably the most resourceful arcade collector you’ll meet. He’s also one of the most private collectors you’ll meet and rightfully so. Project manager by day, he is comfortable with two skills that lend themselves well to hunting down treasures, email and influence. He works hard to find the rare treasures he acquires, and keeps everything very close to the chest. Until today.
Joe recently wrote a very long story with a ton of detail on a trip he took out to South Dakota from Chicago. What for? Oh, only a couple of Cosmic Chasms and a Cube Quest….with a seat.
I will post more on this later, but here is a photo of a couple of the arcade games to give you an idea. I wished now I had taken a straight on view of one of the four storage units of games, but I didn’t, so this will have to suffice.
We see a crappy Ms. Pac-man conversion, a Popeye that is in decent condition, it is missing sideart on the right side, and Super Punch Out, missing the Duck Pull from the control panel and the “Punch Out” sideart is torn up a little on both sides.
There are many other games, about 30 total. I am going to get my stuff together and then post a photo album of about 95 photos of this stash of arcade games here in Indianapolis, IN.
