Having formulated the idea to begin a gaming collection some time ago I spent a little time floundering in the wilderness looking for some sense of direction or inspiration of how to proceed. What becomes obvious very quickly is that there is no right or wrong way to proceed but having listened to ideas from much more experienced gamers/collectors here are some ideas which have worked for me and may prove of use to others.

It's been a long problem for us gamers that causes a lot of upset when buying video game consoles. I'm talking about consoles yellowing. That filthy, mustard looking appearance of the shells of the Super Nintendo, Amiga and many more. The horrendous colour change is caused by too much exposure to UV light which conflicts with the chemical, Bromine (makes the plastic fire retardant) thus causing the yellowing.
There are numerous ways to reverse or lessen the chemical reaction, therefore, restoring the plastic cases back towards their original colour. I recently did this with my Amiga 500+. I purchased it and got a pretty good deal but the downside was the plastic case, keys, mouse and power box were a solid eight out of ten on the severity scale for yellowing. I'm going to tell you my procedure which worked wonders for me...
