I’m ready to do it! I would indeed be extremely happy and honoured to do this task.
I think your collection could be the base of a full Sierra collection. I could backup all your games and create a list of what you have and what you don’t have, so that, as Brandon said, Sierra fans could complete the collection.
I think it would be more “authentic” (and also most probably faster) to start with your collection.
I am ready to take the time and effort to take care of this, and am free to do it whenever is more convenient for you.

I also happen to be particularly interested in this topic. I’ve been part for some years now of a local association that aims at building a computer museum.
