Quoted from gweempose:

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

That's why I search within the maximum allowable distance from my house (200 miles). That gets me listings from indiana, michigan, ohio, iowa, wisconsin, and minnesota

#6352 6 months ago

That's why this thread was created. Deals with fellow collectors and known retailers is so much better.

Quoted from gweempose:

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.

My sentiments exactly. Although, I'm glad I didn't write that. I may have been moderated.

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

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”...

jealousy will get ya nowhere, get off the couch and go get em!

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

Its not Jealousy when someone has a deal with a person, and this guy comes and offers more to get people to back out of their original deal, or tell them he will come instantly when the other person set up an appointment for later in the day. Its ethics, not jealousy

I actually do not mess with craigslist, just not worth it to me

Some of us r lucky enough to have that availability to go when needed to get a pin. But there r others who cant just leave work at any point and time to score a good deal.
But when someone makes a deal with you they should stick to it!!!

Just had it happen to me a few times lately when I committed to a pin and then I get a call or text and its been sold!

Those same loser flipper dickheads are praised here on these very forums. One in particular is notorious for flipping. So not enough people are mad at them, I guess.

It's all in the intent. We would never moderate someone simply for using the word "asshole". As far as profanity goes, it's pretty tame. Heck, you can even use it on TV. It's when you use the word to directly attack another Pinsider where we will often step in. For example, there's a big difference between, "Flippers are assholes." and "Stop acting like such an asshole, gweempose!"

I'm on the hunt for a routed/players condition Revenge from Mars, Creature or maybe a Flintstones. The first two are shoe-ins for a permanent home at my place. I haven't had a chance to play Flintstones, but I have some really cool ideas for it and I think it could be a keeper. If anyone knows/has any leads if you could let me know that would be swell, thanks!

Hey guys, I'm driving to Expo next month from Denver and I have room for a couple extra pins in my enclosed trailer. Just thought I'd mention it in case there's somebody out here that you wish you could make a deal with if shipping wasn't an issue. I'm thinking $150 delivered to Expo or somewhere not too far out of the way. PM me if interested.

Silverball Mania sold! Thanks to all who inquired. Can't wait to see how the buyer's restoration turns out.

I find it fascinating how some games get jumped on, while other good games sit and sit. Is it price point? Desirability? Vaults flooding the market? I can certainly see the draw of a sweet Bally compared to a newer Stern, but it's interesting.

Btw - not trying to make a dig at you or your sales, it was just the most recent to quote.
