I like reading happy pinball stories. What is the best Pinball trade you ever made? I'm not talking about ripping off little old ladies, but the type of trade where you unloaded a game you were ready to see go to someone who really wanted it in exchange for something you really wanted.

I have a had a few before (Original AFM for my JP Pro, My Champion Pub for Taxi, High Speed, and cash) but just did my best "trade" today/yesterday. I traded my MMr LE for a Total Nuclear Annihilation and a 1980 Black Knight. In all fairness it was for a TNA and cash I (mostly) bought the BK with, but still.

Have you guys done any trades like that where you feel like you are upgrading your arcade at no cost to you?

Lets hear your stories!

My Monopoly for a TZ back in 2002. It would be an even better trade today.

Loaded Tron for TFLE a few years ago. Really worked out for the other guy!

An $800 Swords of Fury even trade for a #xxxx-105 DP Rollergames that had been unplayed for 12+ years ...then that traded for a fully shopped great condition Black Knight. Each was fun to own and play but I'm finding the BK has real staying power in a 10 game lineup.

A judge Dredd for a beat up playboy 35th and a case of Doritos (dude was a distributor or something)

Those Doritos lasted the entire winter !

These were both buddy swaps but...

Working Judge Dredd (my first game) for a solid GNR that was just missing it’s display board.

My nice Jackbot for a basket case CFTBL with lots of new parts included.

I’ve also made my share of boneheaded (especially looking back) swaps like...

Dead and rough Fathom for a really nice Johnny Mnemonic (whoops).

My “always broken” STTNG for a working but still lame SWE1... knowing what I know now that wouldn’t have been a hard fix.

I traded a used Houdini for a mmr standard new in box. This is right before houdini's took their nose dive . I wasn't enjoying it and the dude offered the mmr to someone else who posted their Houdini. The dude was happy with the trade, and I was overjoyed
