For a full grown man, Michael Jackson sure has a lot of arcade games. Weird, huh? If you’ve got some money burning a hole in your pocket, why not head out to Beverly Hills in late April to see if you can pick up some of these machines at deep, deep discounts.

He’s basically got just about one of everything. It’s times like these that I wish I would have stuck with the alto saxophone in fifth grade band so I, too, could have made enough money to buy enough arcade games to fill my giant saxophone-shaped mansion. 

There are some real gems in here, like Zoltar the Fortune Teller, Super Street Fighter II, Blitz 99, Need for Speed, DDR, Neo Geo, Karate Champ, and even store display racks with consoles like PlayStation, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, and 3DO. 3DO!

The auction will take place in two rounds; one at 9:00 AM and one at 2:00 PM on April 24th at Julien’s Auctions. It’ll be open to the public, adjacent to the Beverly Hilton at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Zip code? 90210, of course. You’ll have to pony up $20 to get in, or you can bid online at AuctionNetwork.com if you can’t make it in person.
