I'm someone who wants a Skill Roll but doesn't have one yet. I've been watching and bidding on these for the last few years but nothing clicked, last one I had lined up for $3500, not working needing restore, got sold out from under me for $3800. I've never seen one go for $8,000, even in the big auctions with fees, still under $7,000.
Right now is just not a good time for me to take on another project, I just got a Ringer and am restoring a White lightning or I'd bid on this one.
I will say, it really rubs me the wrong way when a seller says it's got broken parts but is "working 100%" if the thing has the wrong motor and doesn't score properly it's not working 100% period.
I'd offer $4 K or maybe a little more for this one if the timing was better for me, I don't see these fetching more than $6-7 grand tops, most pinheads don't know or care about this old oddball stuff. My excitement for old em stuff is almost always met with a blank stare from most pinheads!
Good luck with the sale.

Guess it's a FS thread now. LOL. I like Ringer but for me value wise, it's not even in the same number of digits (3) for as a nice Skill Roll (4). For one, Ringer is a bore to play alone.

Doesn't score right? Guess I missed that it scores 20% slower. Maybe the seller could have someone look at it that is knowledgeable about rebuilding motors.

Thanks for the additional context on values. I am trying to be transparent about condition. You might have missed the word "otherwise" when I said "plays 100% otherwise". I meant that besides the slow scoring motor, nothing else needs attention. That being said, I tried to edit the post to remove 100% to avoid any confusion but you can't edit a post after 24hrs.

All good dude bro! Not trying to be a jerk, just a personal hang up of mine with the 100% thing. You should try to get as much$ as you can, that's the deal! no fault there in my opinion. Best of luck

I hope it sells quickly.

Getting lively in here. I got lucky on the one I bought as it was seriously undervalued. Mine is complete and working and if I needed to sell it, Id put $5,000 tag on it and go from there. There will be people that argue it can't be worth close to a new Stern price, but they are still making new Sterns

Would love to hear what this one ends up selling for. People must have way more disposable income than I ever will have. What kind of jobs do you rich Skill Roll owners have? Haha

In Wisconsin we have to stack the two deep just to have room for them all.

Please remember that the Skill Roll prices peaked during the lockdown, as did everything pinball related. As the tides ebbs, I certainly expect the same for the priciest of skill rolls

You should squeeze yourself between them to stay warm

It’s 35 and sunny today. How warm do you want it?

I sure hope so. I'd love to buy a reasonably priced pin again
