Nintendo Company Overview from 1970

The year 1970 was an important year in the history of Nintendo. It had just completed new offices at its headquarter location in the Higashiyama district of Kyoto and received a listing at the premiere stock market in Osaka.

To mark this moment, and attract (wholesale) customers and investors, the company produced a company overview brochure (会社概況).

Meet the Collectors - #9 - Pasquale Esposito

It's been a while since the previous episode of Meet The Collectors on this blog. I always love to see fellow collectors' passion for their hobby, and I hope to share more of these posts in the future, with collections big or small.

Today we head to Italy, to meet Pasquale who has gathered quite a nice collection, with new and vintage Nintendo items, as well some other brand video games.

"Hi! I am Pasquale Esposito, 20 years old. I am from Naples but now I live in Apulia, another region of South Italy. I work as sales clerk in a kitchen appliance store and I also study Economy at the University."

"In my free time I’m a football referee and a 'Leo' Member. I know that I’m very young for being a collector, but video-games are my biggest passion."
