Michael Jackson auctions not-so-creepy coin-op collection, further evidence of a recession not necessary

Coin-op collectors and appreciators, grab a napkin or your sleeve as what you’re about to see is quite an epic collection of arcade cabinets, classic (and extremely rare) console displays and nerd memorabilia. Juilien’s Auctions, located in California, are holding auction sessions for the King of Pop’s treasure trove on April 22 to April 25 in Beverly Hills. Fear not our fellow Geekadelphians for the auction sessions will stream live worldwide through auctionnetwork.com, which also allows for virtual bidding (technology is incredible isn’t it?).

The absence of his own game in either coin-op or console display form raises disappointment suspicions, but his collection is impressive nonetheless. So if you’re looking for somewhere to spend that tax refund check (what bills?) then why not on the original scissor hands from the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands?
