The world’s largest video game collection, owned by Michael Thomasson, has gone on sale.
The collection stands at over 11,000 games across all platforms and is estimated to be worth between $700,000 and $800,000.
Thomassen amassed the collection over 20 years while having owned and worked in several independent games stores, where each time a new shipment of games would arrive he’d skim one off for himself. Because many of these were the best looking example he could find he claims the collection is largely in mint condition.
The reason Thomassen is selling off the the games is simply to raise funds and, quite probably, just because he’s had enough.
The collection is being auctioned on Game Gavel. Bidding started at $1 but has already reached over $90,000.
