It's "$150,000 Pac Man Saturday!"
Early 80's Atari video game paraphernalia is on the auction block, and may earn its owner - who paid $80.00 for 20 file cabinets back in the mid-80's as Atari was going out of business - upwards of $150,000 - $200,000.
The auction of materials is part of Sotheby's "Fine Arts and Manuscripts" auction, and includes the early pixel sketches for Dig Dug, Donkey Kong and Mario Brothers.
