WFMZ Channel 69 News: Macungie Man’s Unique Hobby Could Soon Become Unique Business
MACUNGIE, Pa. - David Bracetty is often hard at work sanding in his Macungie garage. That kind of work isn't uncommon, but what he's working on is anything but.
Bracetty sanded the laminate off of Marvel vs. Capcom 2, a retro arcade game from the year 2000.
"It's just another thing you learn along the way, another skill you pick up," said Bracetty.
He never thought he'd need the skill, but quickly learned it after buying his first retro arcade game nearly two years ago.
"I knew as soon as I bought one I was going to buy a whole boatload of these," said Bracetty. \
And so it began. Bracetty bought that first Popeye arcade game off of Craigslist and hasn't stopped buying games since.
