Looking to purchase my first pinball machine to start my collection.

Have played all the classics on my Ipad. Now want the real deal!

I have now found the real deal! A beautiful Bally Theatre of Magic!

It's my dream pin. Getting it from a fellow pinsider.

What an awesome machine to have and start a pin collection.

I will be picking it up in just over a week. Stay tuned as the story unfolds.....

Only two more sleeps and I am off on a 16 hour journey from Vancouver Canada to Dixon California to pick up my first collector Theatre of Magic. Call me crazy but I'm going to be pulling this off over a weekend! I'll be ready for some of that Napa Valley Wine when I get there! I have been looking for months for the right machine and I finally found it! I'm so inpressed with the Pinside community. They are so helpful. Being a newbie to this you really need all the help you can get. The sellar I'm dealing with is very heplful,patient and very trustworthy. Anyways I'll continue the story once I'm on my way.

Well it's a beauty !

Everything works 100%

Special thanks to Jay Nervo of Dixon Ca.

Jay is a great sellar. I travelled 16 hours from Vancouver Canada to see this

TOM in person. When I got there this machine was everything that Jay described over the phone and MORE!

This is a true HUO.

There is no way this machine was ever on a route.

Serial number sticker intact and looks brand new!

No scraped gum marks on the bottom. This machine is so clean you feel guilty having a game on it. It is truly a fine example of a TOM.

Everything is original on this game. It even came with the original instruction manual!

Anybody looking for a great deal on a pin contact Jay Nervo (Gorf)

Yes that's right it's in my living room! Temporary location until the weather gets better to move it into the gamesroom downstairs (Lower Main). That's what I call it. Sounds much better than basement. This machine is so nice that it doesn't lookout of place in the living room.
