You guys are gonna see some amazing pictures. The entire collector community stepped up and put together a pile of Classic Stern Junk. Probably one of the best rows we have had in years. I did not even realize what was about to be unwrapped. Just really great stuff. Here is what was there.
Stargazer #1 - Greatwich Direct ink glass and Field. Repainted custom cabinet which was the absolute best pinball cabinet I have ever seen by Kevin Moore since I have been in pinball. I have literally seen 1000's of games from every era. Between the last 15 years including the best from HEP. This cabinet was beyond reality. I was in tears when I saw it.
By the way the John has hit it out of the park with the Stargazer playfields and the glass with the new process. incredible quality.
Quicksilver - Clearcoated totally restored example brought down by a collector from Nebraska. Played spectacular.
Nineball - Beautiful example
Dragonfist - Nice example. Played really good.
Meteor - Great example. One of the best I have ever played. Chicklets throughout. Restored.
Iron Maiden - Probably one the best on the planet. NOS backglass set. Repainted beautiful cabinet. Playfield flawless. Played amazing. I am jealous Rob Jones. I have only seen one very close to as nice.
Stargazer #2 - Cleared playfield. Restored played great.
Stingray - This is my restored game. Really nice example.
2 Flight 2000. Nice games. Both played throughout the show with no issues.
My 2 Gamatrons - The originals
Magic - Josh Tidmore brought this. Played fantastic. A nice example of the game.
Stargazer #3 - Shawn Christians. Really nice game. Played great.
In the Tourney area we had 2 Stargazers #4 and #5 and 2 Seawitches. 1 original beautiful stargazer. Not touch. 1 restored to the hilt. Played over the top. Seawitch #1. Nice original. Plays flawless. Seawitch #2 Clear coated NOS field and NOS backglass. Played great for the tourney.
Gonna be hard to beat this line up next year. Thanks to everyone who helped make it one of the best classic stern's rows I have been involved in putting together. I am so glad the love some of these games are receiving. They deserve it. The classic stern tradition at the TPF has just garnered some very serious respect.
