    I have sent messages to 3 different people about machines no responses back. Just let me know if you have the machine or not...................geeessh.

    I think by the time a Mr. Pinball ad comes out they probably CL it and sold it if it was a decent deal. But I agree some common courtesy would be refreshing....

    I agree, would be nice to get a reply. on the flip side, it sucks getting all the spam when trying to sell. for the record, I reply

    SC, that pin that came up today is a Rescue 911.

    I recently had good luck with them. I contacted a local guy with a BR and asked if he is interested in selling. He is going to ask his kids if they don't mind and email me again.

    I've sold a few and also bought on Mr Pinball
    however when you reply to a " is it still available" you often get hit with tons of junk from spam-bots that send the same message to everyone selling everything.
    I always delete that type of reply as a rule, the quicker you pick up the correct kind of communication the faster you will buy/sell on Mr Pinball & C-list etc.

    I have not tried to make contact through Mr. Pinball, but other sources. Still, the response is little to none.

    How hard is it to send a quick message to say "Sold", "No Shipping", or any explanation?

    Maybe you could let me know what communication I should use.........please?

    Quoted from pinheadpuckguy:

    Most say on their ad which is the best form of communication to get in touch with them. If it doesn't, try them all.

    For best luck in getting replies, send more than just a "is this still available?" message. It's good if you mention the game's name in the body or the subject, because most spammers just say, "the item" or "the machine" rather than the actual game's name since they use templates in their emails.

    I've bought from Mr Pinball also.. I get a Daily E-mail of the Current Pin's listed 4-Sale.. Some Price's are Reasonable and Most are Too High.. The Mr Pin PG Book is a Piser.. They List the Value of Pin's that have ONLY been sold on E-Bay for the Past 2 Yr's in their Book Each year.. Take BR for instance.. In 2010 BR dropped $ 325.00 in their eYe's of Value , then come's back up --some --
    .. 2009 $ 1700.00 -- 2010 $ 1375.00 -- 2011 $ 1425.00 This is B.S.. But , It's Still used as a Guide for Most Collector's.. I bought a FT Listed on Mr P. from a Local seller near me.. He said he had 25 or More E-mail's , but i was the ONLY Responder who Sounded Serious.. If you see a pin on C.List ( or Anywhere ) Priced Right and you want it,, Don't ask for More Pict's or a Better Price,, Tell them You have the Cash in hand and when can We get this Deal Done..
