Cool Old School Game Cartridge collectors? (Atari, Etc...)

I may be one of the only collector nut-jobs in the LKM world, but I'm just throwing out a heads up to anyone else who may be, or may be interested in starting a collection of old Atari, Coleco, Fairchild Channel F, Intellivison, Nintendo, Famicom....etc...

I was an avid collector of all old game systems and games back in the mid 1990's.
I amassed a somewhat impressive collection of all the games from my childhood (70's early 80's)
I have lots of duplicates and am still looking to acquire a few stragglers, or even some systems that I never ran across at thrift stores or yard sales...
AdventureVison laying around in any of your closets?!

Drop me a line, or add to this thread if interested.
I have a new job, new PC, new extra time during the day at work now (finally) to lurk on this forum.

Oh, also...if anyone in the Los Angeles area wants to meet up at 82 (classic barcade downtown) I'd love to meet up and challenge you to a game of Robotron 2084. (loser buys a beer)

I said good day sir!

I was talking to Hemo about this a couple of days ago.
I still have to dig out the rest of my stuff, but here is a small sample of what I have. http://imgur.com/a/hT9wy

Need to add a pick of my Pokemon GB color Pikachu edition.

LOL, by the way Squirmles, I am in Northridge.
Lets do lunch and see how long it takes for me to start to hate you.

lol. I'm working out of Glendale now, mon-Friday, but i'm game for a trip to In and out over by Walmart, or there's a cheap authentic Mexican place at Balboa and San fernando that I grab nachos and burritos at! I'm pretty laid back and calm, not too annoying, but I'll still be impressed if you hate me! :P

I usually get home after 7:30 at night...for dinner...lunch probably can't happen...but on a weekend day maybe.

Here's a ton of great pictures of super collectors and normal folk alike... who posted their collections online.

http://www.videogamecollectors.com/

I started collecting videogames in about 1992, and I stopped for the most part by 2002. (I bought a house in 2003...which, for all of you out there who own their home...tend to suck up any extra $ you thought you might have to splurge on that Tempest machine, or on that Neo Geo home console.)

Enjoy the pictures
