It's "Murphy's on 21". The Strikes and Spares is in pretty good shape. The guy you want to talk to there is Steve and he is a good guy. I am not sure he is looking to sell, but its a lead.

Im willing to bet “Ryan” is one of them. That dude has scooped up so many good deals, only to flip them after doing basically nothing to them for a big mark up. Hes ruined craigslist and letgo around this area. He continues to fill his storage unit and post games for inflated prices. Then he has the balls to have a profile pic of him on his boat. Go F yourself who ever you are “Ryan”...

It's pretty much like any place else. If it is priced fairly, then it will sell. If not, then it won't.

If the website still maintained that google spreadsheet, often deals would get made ahead of time (I bought a pin from someone one year because it was a title I wanted and was priced right). You may still end up getting a sale early on if priced right, or you may get everyone waiting till last minute to offer you less so you don't have to pack it up and bring it back with you. However you do have the advantage that the chicago area is densely populated with collectors, so you have a better chance of selling here than in indiana I imagine.

Don't know much about him, except he's made plenty of enemies with Chicago land buyers and collectors on deals, by the typical ill give you this much more if I can get it now!. I know this first hand on a pin that's he's listed on C CL now. Im sure there would be a few more on this thread that could chime in as well on some situations to.

On the other hand his dad Jim I dealt with years back and hand no issue's on some pins.

Bottom line young man, learn better business tactics.

Oh hell, the naperville guy? The overpriced pins that have sat on there week after week for the past couple months?
$1750 millionaire
$5200 sopranos
$2450 bally harley
$3200 Al's garage band
$2500 gottlieb world soccer

I'd say his tactic is working if things sell to suckers, but they aren't. So I guess he's just going to sit on games for a while (maybe a long while if the market keeps getting saturated with more games).

Hes bought many a deal on CL, let go, etc, proceeded to do nothing to them (or clown puke them with leds), then list them for $1000+ more. He did this with a Fireball classic I had my eye on. $800...dude gets it first of course, then flips it with all blue GI for $1800. Gimme a break.

There are so many assholes like that around here that I don't even bother checking craigslist anymore. I know people in other cities that get good deals all the time on craigslist, but that's virtually impossible in our area because of all the loser flipper dickheads.

The only way to discourage that is to keep scrolling past. Unfortunately, there are buyers that dont know or dont care and buy from people like this.

Back to looking for a family friendly, player's condition game for my school/office.

Here's my crazed blathering describing more specifically what I'm looking for:
