We rolled in about 10:30am from North Jersey. The crowd was large and the line to get in was out to the street for the 12pm opening time. I managed to get in the show early ahead of time with a friend who needed a hand setting up his Southern Bell Woodrail that was restored by Nick Rash(see pictures).
Once inside i could tell once again this show was going to be a awesome. We stayed until 7:30pm and still then the crowd was large and it looked like no one wanted to go home.
JR's Golden Arrow was the best original condition EM at the show and looked to be in factory new condition after he worked his talented restoration skills throughout this 16,000 total played gem of a wedgehead. The lucky buyer was a friend here in NJ that will be adding this stunning beauty to his collection. The same collector bought the 100% working Williams Beat the Clock in these pictures that also was in outstanding original condition and looked to be another low played EM without any wear on the playfield at all.
The Buccaneer was a sample game and in nice original condition and there was a Target Pool had a beautiful playfield and great cabinet with the backglass having some small flaking issues for a decent price(sold quickly). Dave Met's Friendship 7 was in outstanding condition and played real nice too. There were many other EM's for sale that looked and played great and the prices were average. EM spare parts were everywhere you looked.
I had a good time and got to see and talk to all my hobby friends i have met through the years once again. I wish i could have gone again on Saturday but family matters are more important this year. At least last year i got to attend both days at the 2013 show.
A special thanks to Ivan and his crew for a sensational "top of the line" show!
Here are a few pictures i took a half hour before the 8pm closing time.
