    Are you guys interested in this type of thing - WILLIAMS 1963 MAJOR LEAGUE - ? Considering this sport isn't played or popular in the UK it seems top dollar. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253398276040

    I know this is a collective group and I won't pretend to speak for the whole, but in my feelings "Flipperless" pinball games do not include pitch 'n' bats. I enjoy the pitch 'n' bats (and perhaps they deserve their own for sale thread?), but in my opinion they probably don't quite fit into the focus of this thread. But thanks for thinking of us, Astyy!

    Perhaps some of the older pitch & bats like 1949 Bally Heavy Hitter fall under the ambit of multiple categories, including the flipperless pinball category.

    Certainly, 1935 PAMCO Major League (which pitches, sans a traditional bat) falls into the flipperless game genre.

    Nevertheless, the pitch & bats from the 1950s onward seem alien to the features which define the core of flipperless games.

    I agree. Also this is a "Prewar" forum as well.

    #357 1 year ago
    Quoted from jmsvero:

    Also this is a "Prewar" forum as well.

    I haven't adhered to this when looking for games for sale, as there are PLENTY of flipperless games created after 1945, in fact a number of flipperless games have even been created after the (conventionally accepted) invention of flippers on "Humpty Dumpty" in late '47. Surprising to some, there are production, coin-op, flipperless games made in the 50's, 60's, 70's and beyond. ...and if I found any of those for sale, I'd certainly post them here. Ha-ha!

    I guess *PERSONALLY* I'm more focused on non-bingo flipperless games here (only because bingos have their own thread...and feel like a completely unique offering, TO ME). So I'm not sure about the rest of the two people who check this thread, but I know that I'm not wed to the "Pre-WWII" portion of the "EM AND pre-wwii" subforum title.

    Sellers Description→ A nickel gambling coin operated game made by western coin op in Chicago Illinois. this machine is working and will pay out nickels properly when the ball enters any of the score holes on the playfield.
    Even pays out. Not a bad price either.

    I seen this exact same game back in 2012 and snapped a few pictures of it when I was at the guys place.

    Hmm... Springlness, automatic...

    Doesn't appear to be coin-op.

    Balls accumulate at the bottom - all balls drop through playfield.

    Two questions: 1) how do they dump into the trough? Guessing a little handle.

    2) how does one launch the ball? Launcher mech is internal. Guessing another handle somewhere.

    The problem I have with the handle theory: where do they attach?? There's not a good pic of the right side, which would be the typical position, but handle(s) must be missing as you can't see them from any other angle.

    Oh, and doesn't look like there's a slot cut for playfield glass. Looks like a home toy machine, though very early.

    A couple/few days ago, there were a whole SLEW of flipperless games that were listed on ebay from a seller named indianapickers1958. (Probably close to a dozen.) I thought to myself, "Great! Now I can populate the flipperless thread for another couple weeks," as I've found it challenging to uncover NEW posts recently. Then, just as quickly as they all appeared, they were all pulled. I'm not sure if someone purchased the entire lot or what happen. I didn't attempt to contact the seller.

    Anyhow, most of the listings I find these days I've posted here previously, or I'd be chastised for listing them. (Frankly, I'd agree, the non-coin-op toy versions aren't as exciting. But as I've mentioned, I've been struggling to find newly listed bona fide flipperless coin-op items.)

    With all that said, I still have those pulled ads up in tabs on my browser. Due to the difficulty of finding new ads, the next several I post will be de-listed ads from the seller mentioned above. Still some eye-candy for those among us who appreciate this fine hobby's history, but unfortunately probably not available for purchase. ...but you're welcome to contact the seller (and perhaps report back to us here). I'll start with the oldest of the bunch:

    A buddy of mine, John dayhuff , is selling a nice lookin':

    1941 Genco "Gun Club" and he's askin' $500 for it.

    He can be contacted via the pinsider listing above. He's located in Battle Creek, MI, he's a good no-nonsense dude, and you should deal with him with confidence. Here are a poop-ton of pictures John forwarded to me personally, knowing I'd be interested. Honestly, I'm real tempted but just don't have the room. That backglass with the backlit shooting gallery ducks looks amazing (aside from the minor flake John points out), as does the gorgeous playfield (obviously the bumpers could use some work).

    Hey Dennis,

    Just a quick follow-up question:

    things (resized).jpg

    What in the world are these? I was looking at them from every angle in an attempt to better understand them. Are they, like, a little ramp of raised wood? What's their purpose? They're positioned directly behind one of those pigeon hole columns, so it's not as if you could launch a ball off them like a ramp. Are they just glorified diverters? They seem a bit short for that.

    Looking forward to your thoughts on these and how they influence gameplay.

    Best,
    Ryan

    I'm sure my game has had new felt and numbers added sometime in its past.

    Unfortunately, my carpet had to be pulled up a few years ago after the basement sewer backed up. Just bare concrete now.

    The two "ramps" appear to be aftermarket pieces. Either added by an operator or a later owner. The guy I bought it from said that he did not add them. They are crudely cut and of a different type of wood than the rest of the game.
    Being rounded at the ends, they very slightly divert a ball running next to them off to the left or right making it just a little easier to direct the ball into one of the bell scoring areas. Probably not an operator add on for that reason!

    OHmygodthatsux!!! I'm so sorry to hear about that. We have a basement remodel in our future and after seeing that red carpet, I'm seriously contemplating a Dodel homage. If it comes to fruition, I'll send you some pix.

    Quoted from RyanClaytor:

    A couple/few days ago, there were a whole SLEW of flipperless games that were listed on ebay from a seller named indianapickers1958. ... Then, just as quickly as they all appeared, they were all pulled. ... With all that said, I still have those pulled ads up in tabs on my browser. Due to the difficulty of finding new ads, the next several I post will be de-listed ads from the seller mentioned above.

    Hey Flipperless Fans,

    I've been neck deep in event planning for the MSU Comics Forum ( comicsforum.msu.edu ), so not much time to post these days. Figured I'd say something instead of just dropping off the face of the Earth.

    Best,
    Ryan
