    Hey Guys! Curious who the other hardcore Bally collectors are? I just can't get enough of 'em. Hangin' on to that childhood. Post your '70s and '80s line-ups! Mine are scattered between here, NE Ohio and Denver at my kids house. Only have a handful where I'm currently at. Also always seem to have few that are bein' worked on.

    Nothin' like a row of classic Ballys!

    Got these two nicely restored ones. Both with NOS Bally playfields installed.

    Even more beautiful if it is not one of those reproductions. Both have original backglasses in excellent shape too.

    They both light up my living room. I'm very picky when it comes to what I put there, being I have to walk by and look at them several times a day. These certainly fit the bill.

    Honestly, I paid more for the Frontier from the same restorer as it is a much rarer game, especially in that condition. Would not sell either.

    Great line-ups!

    Most Bally games from that era are real classics. Bally games I have owned include Hootenanny, 50/50, Champ, Fireball, Flash Gordon, Vector, Paragon, Viking, Xenon, Space Invaders, Silverball Mania, Medusa, Strikes&Spares, Eight Ball and Baby Pac-Man. If it wasn't for lack of space, I probably would not have sold any one of them.

    Bally definitely had the best art packages of anyone in the late 70's - mid 80's. I've got Mata Hari, Centaur, Skateball, Playboy and Paragon in my Bally lineup. I sold Vector a few years back, liked the art and lights but the gameplay left me blah.

    My favorite era!

    Don’t really have them grouped by manufacturer, but here’s a couple groupings....

    I've had about 1/2 the SS Bally's at one time or another.
    Some heavy regret sells in that herd too.
    The $850 Frontier I passed on 10 years ago remains my worst pinball decision ever.

    Right now.
    Fireball2, Eight Ball DeluxeLE, Xenon (here on loan), Fireball Classic, 6Mill$Man, Eight Ball Champ, and Paragon - and they're all staying!
    They are the classiest looking games, they are always challenging, and the art is made for adults.

    2 remain that I've never seen or played, Voltan and Gold Ball.
