Yesterday I covered approx 500 miles to make two trips to collect a huge bounty of retro computers, consoles and software with RCM from a chap that was having a ‘small’ clear out.
On arrival, I was amazed at the sheer amount of stuff he had and equally the quality and rarity and some of the items. There so much to sort though, including the 30 odd boxes of tapes, disks, cartridges, peripherals, oddities.
Here a short list of the hardware collected (software is going to take ages!)
Dreamcast (arcade stick, light guns, fishing rod, controllers)
Sega Megadrive x2
Sega Master System
Spectrum +2 (both versions)
Atari 800XL with disk drive
Atari 65xe with tape deck
Atari 600xl with memory expansion
Atari VCS junior
Mattel Aquarius with tapedeck
Commodore Vic 20
Commodore 64 (a few of these)
Dragon 32 x 2
Squeezing the first lot into the car.
So much stuff and little time to go through it all.
Commodore A1200 Desktop Dynamite package…anyone for ‘Oscar’…no, thought not, me neither 😛
Quite a lot of the original packaging boxes were in lovely condition, like this 16k ram pack for the ZX81.
Atari Jaguar that looked like it had never be opened or used.
…and amongst the many boxes of games, some really nice ones like this Hungry Horace micro cart.
Although a very long day, was certainly worth it!
