Quoted from Trekie:

What is the definition of a pin flipper? Is it a derogatory name?

Same thing as a ticket scalper, except with pinball machines.

I'm selling a Williams Hyperball for $700. Little damage to the rear bottom of the cabinet, otherwise nice.

Quoted from FatPanda:

Did someone here inquire about or pick up the 2 Meteor projects in the Chicago area?

Yes. This morning I offered the guy significantly more than his asking price, and he jumped at that and agreed to sell them to me. I couldn't pick them up today, however.

I was working on a pickup date and time with him when he suddenly stopped returning my texts. Tonight he finally told me he sold them to someone else.

I'm not sure if someone offered more money or if he sold them for less because he wanted them gone tonight. Either way it was a dick move.

Quoted from jdoz2:

Imo the dick move is offering more in the first place to jump start the bidding war. Can’t fault a non pinhead for trying to get the most for their game when people are throwing offers around.
I’m sure you weren’t the first person to contact him so you kicked someone else aside and the person who bought them did the same to you.
I know some people don’t see a problem doing that but that rubs me wrong for some reason.

So if someone at a garage sale is selling an Adams Family for $100, you could pay him $100 for it and feel no guilt?

Quoted from Wmsfan:

So you offered more to bump someone else, but are pissed because someone did it to you?

No, I'm not really pissed. I was actually just trying to answer Fatpandas question.

According to the seller, I was the only one that contacted him about the machines at that point, so I didn't really "bump" anybody.

I think $200 for two meteors was grossly underpriced. If someone is selling something severely underpriced, it's proper to offer them a reasonable price for it. If you feel you need to take advantage of someone just because they're not a pinhead or not on pinside, we'll have to agree to disagree.
