A member of the arcade collecting community turned up a real gem this weekend at an old operator’s warehouse, a complete NOS (New Old Stock) conversion kit. I have ties to this game now since I have vectorized most of the Glob artwork and someday will finish designing custom kickplate artwork for the game as well.

The results are in, the auctions have ended and the final results are in for the first round of the recently unearthed, unapplied arcade game artwork from the QuarterArcade.com warehouse raid. There were a handful of pieces that went for over $200! That price leaves some of us spinning, and others….well as gay as french Mario, trapeze and all.
Richard Ford was in the mix again proving that he will always set the standard for the value of NOS arcade game artwork. Check out some of the results after the jump. (more…)
Just a short update to the post I originally did announcing the QuarterArcade.com bulk warehouse arcade game buy in Schwenksville, PA, Anthony has released photos of the 5 laser disc arcade games from that lot.

This video of Jon Exidy finding a warehouse of games is one of the better ones with so many popular games – Q*Bert, Defender, Star Wars, every popular game is in this warehouse, it is every collector’s dream.
