Someone Has Over $100K in 80s Memorabilia
“John-Paul Annunziato thinks the ’80s are so rad, he’s shelled out more than $100,000 so far to build a totally tubular collection of 30,000-plus items that define the decade of shoulder pads, Valley girls, and ALF,” according to The New York Post.
“My goal initially was to bring back the 80s — the culture and the style,” he said. “There was no political correctness. No censorship. The clothes, everything was a statement piece… The 80s was a wild time.”
That is true dedication to a decade that is so jam-packed with stuff you wouldn’t know where to begin. Not to worry, according to the report, Annunziato got a couple of steals while he was building this “totally tubular” collection of memorabilia.
“I bought like 200 Nintendo games from someone for like $1,000,” said Annunziato, according to the report.
“A guy was selling like 30 or 40 GI Joe figures. I spent close to $2,000 buying them up in auctions over the weekend.’
