Dec. 10: Collins Entertainment Corp. to Auction With Super Auctions and JK Auctioneers

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. in Greenville, S.C.: After 50 Years, a jukebox & a pinball, it's, "Sell It All, Regardless of Price"

Super Auctions and JK Auctioneers have today announced they will be conducting a live auction on behalf of Collins Entertainment Corp. What began with a jukebox in the 1940s lead to a jukebox and a pinball machine and, from there, the rest became history.

Fred J. Collins, Jr. and the history behind the Collins company's empire had been published in a local book, "Historic Greenville, The Story of Greenville & Greenville County."

After more than 50 years Collins has sold its amusement machine route operations and all of Collins' coin-operated amusement machines will be sold in a one-day live, on-site auction. Items will include hundreds of iconic skill pinballs, video games, pool tables, pinball machines, and kiddie rides - nearly 800 items will be sold to the highest bidder, regardless of price.

When: Saturday, December 10, 2011
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Where: 6099 Ponders Court, Greenville, SC 29615

The auction comes just in time for Christmas. Pinball fans will thrill to favorites such as Indiana Jones, Corvette, Harley Davidson and Theater of Magic. Video game fans will flock to Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Golden Tee and - what started it all - jukeboxes.

Mark Meglic, COO of Collins, said, "Mr. Collins lives on in the work of the Fred J. Collins Foundation. The Foundation has now contributed over $2,000,000 to the Salvation Army and continues to provide additional support to various organizations throughout the Greenville Community."

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Collins history - an opportunity that will not present itself again in the amusement sector," stated Melissa Storment, vice president of Super Auctions. "Everyone in the amusement industry knows the impact that Collins Entertainment has made and the impact that Mr. Collins has made in the Greenville Community is undeniable."
