    I will be bringing several London Pinball Ultimate Rubber Ring Kits (classic white rubber) and London Pinball T-shirts to sell at the show. Shoot me a message if you'd like to reserve a ring kit or to order a specific shirt size.

    The shirts are a new run with a local company that provides high-quality products only. Nice thick material that will last. $30cdn with sizes ranging from small to 4XL.

    The Ultimate Rubber Ring Kit is a special show price of $55cdn and provide enough rings to outfit 3-4 vintage games.

    Quoted from Hammerhead:

    Is this a new, unused mini playfield? Or did it come out of a game?

    Any pictures? I'd be interested in this depending upon the condition. Thanks.
