im running a charity auction for Nightmare Tony. We lost a legend and a lot of the people from the NG side of the community donated items. There is more coming, but here is the link. The fine folks over at Game Gavel were was also super cool in giving us a venue to do this free of charge! There is Home Console things as well as PCB's and other arcade goodies! Every penny goes to the American Cancer Society as a donation in Tony's name. There is more stuff being donated in still, so the listing are still growing! All items are donated from various personal collections from people that knew him.

I am personally putting up the Ghosts and Goblins Prototype PCB that Tony got personally from his days working at Romstar.

Thanks for looking!

Just so you think your cause is being ignored, you've posted this in the middle of our annual charity auction. If Racketboy users seem under represented, please do not take it personally.

Good luck with your auction.

Not that I've checked but neo-geo.com has a pretty big nightmare tony following.

I assume you've posted over there.

ng.com is my home turf. Most of the donated items are from ng folk.

(sorry it took an extra day to respond- super busy at work)

Quick version (game gavel has a nice page dedicated to him for the tony-a-thon)

he was one of the nicest guys i have ever known. Ex-snk
(having worked on the neo geo) and romstar employee. Repair guru. always wanted to help. Passed last month due to cancer. Legendary guy.

I personally put up a ghosts n goblins prototype pcb into the auction that i received from tony. He got it originally during his romstar days.
