Thomasson acquired the collection over a period of 30 years

Michael Thomasson, the former owner, commented prior to the sale: "I operated seven independent gaming stores during the nineties and have worked for another chain for the last decade."

"Whenever I purchased a game that did not directly come from the distributor I was able to look through all our inventory and pick out the nicest copy of a game, including grabbing the nicest box and manual.

"Approximately a quarter of the collection is new factory sealed!"
