Auctions have taken over the summer. First it was the bid for a piece of David Bowie's hair, then Prince's Purple Rain blouse and now: one of the world's biggest boombox collections. Craig Kenton from New Zealand has one of the most incredible collections out there but he's decided to put his 400 vintage machines up for auction. The starting price is $20,000.

"If I just sold the top 20 they would reach $20,000, and I've already had interest in some of those … but I would prefer to sell them as a collection," he told Stuff. "Finding them has been a big part of my life. I feel like the collection is a piece of 80s art, and I hope they go somewhere they can be seen." Head to TradeMe.co.nz to bid.
