Collector Spotlight #7 — Sage ‘The Rube’ Spirtos
[Welcome back to our Collector Spotlight feature where we spotlight members of the SKC community who have dedicated their time, money and living space to amassing an awe-inspiring collection of toys, games, pencil toppers or novelty soaps. If you collect it, are proud of it and want to share it this is your chance!]
This week a friend, former SKC contributor and owner of The Rusty Quarter Arcade, Sage “The Rube Spirtos, returns to show off his massive collection of… well, just about everything! From old school video games to classic toys and a special section dedicated to The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Rube has amassed a mighty fine haul over the years.
THE RUBE: I guess I’ve always started collecting at an early age, starting with Monster Model Kits and yo-yos, but the bug didn’t really kick in until I was in my mid 20’s. My wife and I recently moved to a nice 2 story townhouse which alowed me to get TONS of toys, retro collectibles, tiki mugs, and artwork. Right now I still have a second bedroom full of boxed collectibles but I hope that one day soon that I’ll have everything out on display.
