?? for not owning/showing any Barfcade 1Ups.



LCD, and their branding (Arcade 1UP) all over the cabinets were the deal breaker for me.  I understand why collectors go after them, but they aren't my cup of tea.

That SMS rack original,  or something you put together? Everything looks great. 

It was an "Imaginarium" rack from Toys R Us late 90's I got when I worked there.  They were going to throw it out, and I saved it.  Easy conversion of a very nice display rack.  Just painted the base board and header black (originally white) and added the SMS sign atop.  The red metal frame really stood out to me.  I couldn't see it going in the dumpster.

I had to show some love for the Master System.  It was my first gaming console I got for Christmas 1987 when I was 13 years old.  Still the best Christmas I ever had.


I have a bunch more video game signs saved that were headed for the trash when I worked at TRU.  The Super Nintendo sign I have above my window is one of them, circa 1995.


I remember the kiosk display of the SMS at Hills Department store 35 years ago, and could kick myself for not asking the manager if I could have it when they were through.  I just remember it being very unique, and very cool.
