With only 2 games this is obviously a collectors piece?

I'm pretty sure there's more than just 2 originals. Two games were only originally created, but extra backglasses were also made.

That is looks awesome, but $500 for a painted piece of plastic no thanks

Only two games created, one was further along then the other but neither of which have been spotted in the last 20-25 years. It's my last Holy Grail game to find. Originally there was approximately 20 plexiglasses made. I have an original plexiglass that I paid $200 for back in like the year 2001 I think it was. Since then originals have been known to sell for upwards of $3500 but now once again a rare item has been reproduced because of the high dollar the originals were bringing but now the flooding of the market of the repo's it will surely bring the value of the originals down to less then the repo's.

I have had mine displayed for a few months. The quality of work on these are outstanding for only 500 plus shipping you can now get one without a bidding war of over 3000 or a pin to trade. I haveba limited number of thede on hand for 500 original plexi and 300 real glass type like a Kiss or Star Trek backglass size.

I can drop on off my route no shipping charge as I am leaving Norton Va to go to Lakewood New Jersery just PM great way to get one safely
The Roanoke Pinball Museum has a few of the smaller glass versions at their location for sale 300 each. These are good for bigfoot clubs and hunting clubs and cool decorations.

And your right on this as it never had a chance too, because the repro's came out and nobody cares anymore about original/repro...especially when you talking that kind of money difference.
