    Have not seen any listings on prices for yesterday's auction. There are pictures on Facebook Carolina Arcade and pinball collectors. Anyone have any of the sell prices. Last auction I didn't see any either. Please post any you can remember.

    Crud, I forgot about it. Picked up a decent Creech today though

    I'd like to know what the Baywatch went for if anyone remembers.

    I would really like to know about any of the prices, because I'm trying to decide about taking stuff to the auction in October and November.

    JP 1500 -it was a little rough
    Ripley's 2250 - a nicer one was pulled before auction
    SS 1200
    DM 1650 - display was starting to go bad
    Getaway 1900 - faded cab
    IJ 4300
    JD 1700
    Nascar 1900
    T2 1500- had wear at flippers and left ramp and broken plastic over left ramp, and something up with translite if I remember correctly
    RCT 1900

    Shrek 3000
    RFM 2750

    Overall decent prices for an auction. Lately seems auction prices have been stupid. Assume this doesn't include the buyers premium though.

    Remember to add about 20 percent in fees and tax. Doesn't look like any deals to me.

    I've been to this auction a number of times this year and there have only been a few pins sell at prices that I'd say were bargains (probably buybacks). Especially when you consider that inspection consists of turning the machine on and maybe play testing if it's set to free play.

    Thanks for the prices

    What kind of condition was that IJ in?

    I didn't pay too much attention as I wasn't really interested in it. I played a few games on it and maybe there were a few bulbs that were out, I didn't notice any obvious playfield wear and everything seemed to function fine.

    The auction is only a deal any more if you can avoid fees. It's an awfully long day to overpay for a pinball imo

    How would you avoid fees?

    I could be wrong on some of this and it could have changed some recently. But, there is a 10% sales tax, a premium to the auction house, and I fee if you don't use cash. There is a way to sign up with the auction house for a set yearly fee (or at least there used to be) to avoid that or most of that. Some of these people also are established as dealers of either parts or games in general and a lot of those can buy tax free. So where me or you would have to pay the fees other won't.

    10% sales tax?!? Yep, there it is, worst place to shop in the U.S. I guess, though no state income tax may make up for some of that if you're a resident.

    Thanks for the other info, I know little about auctions and auction houses but that's all interesting stuff.

    You can work out parking lot deals before the auction starts. I've also worked out deals with sellers during the auction before the auctioneer reaches their machine.

    This is true too. I've seen a ton of games sold that never reach the floor. It's a fun experience for sure either way

    Every gamer should attend at least one auction in their lifetime.

    Man I enjoy going just to talk to people. There are people from all over come to those things. It's pretty cool

    I go to play a bunch of different machines. There are some machines I think I will like for whatever reason but after I play it I think that's not for me.

    Just don't forget if you've never been... bring your own extension cord. You can't play anything if it isn't plugged in lol. You only make that mistake once
