A couple months ago I threw a 'hail mary' in hopes that someone would respond to my plea:
And sure enough, AlexF gave me a lead to a guy near Chicago and history was made. Just yesterday I picked up this machine in Iowa City (I drove 4 hours and he drove 3), we shook hands exchanged cash for machine and now I'm the proud owner of a Mini Baseball! Pretty excited about it since I'm a sucker for Chicago Coin, pachinko machines and baseball! Since I had 2 months since the deal was made I had time to go on the internet and get a few items. Schematics, manual, found some balls that actually belong to the machine and someone to make me some decals for the front of the glass.
Here's some pics and let the fixing begin!
