    There is a lot of luck, no doubt, but there are still good titles out there. In the past 6 months, I just missed on a few nice titles on my local (St Louis) Craigslist. I work out of my house and try to check 2-3 times a day when I'm taking a break.

    Last Saturday, saw this King of Diamonds for $100. I was the first caller and brought it home that afternoon.

    I already have a KOD sample version but this one will be nicer when cleaned up so my other one will go back into circulation. I'm far from a flipper (I've had that KOD for 5 years and did full shop out), I'll sell it for what I paid + the parts I put in it. No more.

    Win some and lose some.......

    Hit an estate sale this morning just behind a guy who picked up a 1955 Williams Wonderland for $375. Back glass was very nice, playfield was good (would seem to clean up nicely) and cabinet was good.

    The deals are out there.... Maybe next time.

    Quoted from AlexF:

    Holy crap! That went for $375!? Did you at least grab the Arrowhead?

    I didn't (it was $375 also). Back glass on that was also very nice, playfield was OK but the lockdown bar was badly damaged and the metal cover over the center return lane shooter was missing. I love the back glass on this game but it is not on my 'must have' list. If you want I can check back on it and if you plan on being in St Louis at some point in the near future I could get it and hold it for you. You can PM me if you want it.

    Quoted from AlexF:

    I appreciate that but have sort of gotten to the point where cheap and local is what I limit myself to.

    That is kind of where I am at as well. 10 years ago when I started with games I had a Jack in the Box shipped from Seattle! (I laugh at that now).

    I probably should have gotten up earlier and waited in line but I like to make my daughter breakfast before she goes to school. Plus in this case the lady running it did say the guy who bought it was in line so I might have lost out anyway. Plus I am right in the middle of a rebuild on a King of Diamonds that I was the first person to call on and picked up for $100 so I figure someone else was due for a find!
