On the Project Front; Borderline projects with common Themes and missing parts were the rule for 2019. People are dragging up mess from everywhere.
They are asking (demanding?) more from it. 300 is the new 50, 1250 the new 600.
As Buyers of EM's become more discerning bad Titles with high production counts are ignored as restoration candidates.
Bottom line; Collectors possess the majority of worthy restoration prospects. Rare exceptions pop up infrequently. Demand for good examples strong.
Collective information sources like Pinside are influential in determining a desirable Title. Undesirable Titles will begin to be parted out in droves or sold for little.
Drop Targets remain hot. So does multi-ball. 2019 may have witnessed Bally surpassing Gottlieb in desirability (Zipper flipper madness) as well as a re-newed appreciation for Artwork.
Late-Model Williams have no problems selling, certain 60's versions not accepted as greats iffy.
What say you? Spill it out, there is a lot to talk about.
