I've long said that I do not feel the asking prices for AFM are any where near the prices the machine really sells for. People only see asking prices though.

All the people who claim it is a 10k game also claim they bought it years ago before it got super valuable. Find me someone who will admit to paying 10k+ for an AFM here on Pinside.

Quoted from RobT:

I know of 3 people personally who have more than $10k in an AFM that they either own now, or have in the past (not including posters on Pinside that I don't know personally). And if you want someone to raise their hand in terms of having more than $10k invested, I am waving my hand. Both of them actually.

Not invested in one (I understand people who have one restored have more than 10k invested in one), I'm talking about someone to raise their hand and say they bought one on Pinside for over 10k out of the market place. Very different things.

Quoted from RobT:

Why does that matter?

Well, it is a small difference but a difference nonetheless. I would spend $6,000 having a HEP level restore done to my pride and joy Doctor Who. I've owned the game NIB since 1992 and it is my baby machine. I would not buy a DW for $6,000 . . . that would be bad judgment.

The market for AFM is not at or above 10k based on what I can tell, though some people who really love the game have a master like Keller, McCune, or HEP restore them for them and they have over 10k into them.

Again, all of this is just my observations, doesn't mean they are correct.
