Pac-Man Museum's Collection

Upon its release, Pac-Man became a social phenomenon that sold a bevy of merchandise like clothers, stickers, pins, glasses, mugs and so on. The Summer 1997 issue of Collectibles magazine had an article on Pac-Man collectibles, including about a dozen full-color photos.

On the right you see the "Pac-Man Collectibles" (Schiffer Book, August, 2002) written by Deborah Palicia. About the book:

When Midway Manufacturing introduced the Pac-Man arcade game in late 1980, there were many who doubted that a maze-based game could compete against the space invader games that were so prevalent. They were wrong! Pac-Man experienced a meteoric rise in popularity. It took the nation and the world by storm, and following in its wake was a stream of Pac-Man products that were gobbled up by its fans. It has been estimated that there were over five hundred different Pac-Man related items manufactured over the past twenty years. This new book catalogs many of them with complete descriptions and 415 color photographs. It covers everything from the games themselves to plush Pac-Man figures, from magazines and puzzles to videos and animation cels. Each caption includes a guide to the market value (in 2002). A must-have book for Pac-Man maniacs!
