Three Times Guinness Book Certified Video Games Collector Sells His Collection

Collectors of any kind are a strange breed. Michael Thomasson began collecting video games as early as 1998, when he began managing seven independent gaming stores and a game resale website, Good Deal Games. During that time he amassed an amazing collection of more than 11,000 titles that was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

 

Around a quarter of the entire collection is factory sealed, while more than 8,300 titles are complete with their manuals and original boxes. As any collector knows, it must have been a heartbreaking moment for Thomasson when he put his collection online for bidding. Parting with a passion is something like a heartbreak, but he stated that the reason for doing this is that he had to address the needs of his immediate and extended family.

But apart from putting his family's needs first, he also mentioned that he has previously sold his collections twice. The first time he did this was to purchase Sega Genesis, and the second time was to pay for his wedding. This is the third time he is selling his collection. Judging from his past collections he will amass another one in no time.
