Al Gross

This page is now dedicated to the memory of Al Gross.
On December 30th, 2004, I learned that Al Gross passed away just after Thanksgiving. He was 84.


Nothing I can write here can give Al the credit he deserves. Al was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. I can't count the number of times that Al helped the less fortunate in the neighborhood around his warehouses. Al was a great asset to the collecting community and will be major loss for all collectors who knew him.

No matter what happened to Al, he always had an upbeat and positive attitude. I can't remember a time when he wasn't smiling. He was a hard working person with a work ethic that is rare to this day; even working after having a stroke, he never retired.

My sincerest condolences to his son David and his family, Al will be missed. Rest in Peace Al. I'm glad I knew you.

Below is the text that originally appeared on this page.

Al Gross is a local operator here in Phoenix. His company is called "Gross Games" (A.K.A "Rishon Distributing").

He currently has 250+ games, 280+ PCBs and 530+ Marquees. In addition to these things he has various quantities and combinations of ROM boards, Interface Boards, Logic Boards, Video boards, Monitors, Monitor Parts, Joysticks, Buttons, Steering wheels, etc... In other words, he has so much stuff, he doesn't know what he has :-)

If fact, he has so much stuff I can no longer keep up with what he has anymore. Therefore, I have elected to remove the lists of what he has as it is no longer accurate and I do not have the time to keep track of it. I highly recommend that if you are looking for something, to give him a call.

He is a very nice guy and will help you when he can. If you're looking for something, give him a call and see if he has it. If you think he wants too much for something, tell him, he's reasonable and so are his prices.

Gross Games is still in business and is now being run by his son David. I feel this company is in good hands. I don't know if the business will be run with the same hours as it used to, but if I find out, I'll update the hours here.
