Beautiful Gottlieb Central Park (EM)
Haven't figured out pricing yet.
For anyone that likes EMs:
I have the following for sale
Flipper Clown - 1962
Central Park - 1966. Very very nice
Gottlieb Cinderella - 1948. Average/below average. Will need repro glass.
Gottlieb Wishing Well -1955
Universe - 1959
Football - 1949 (Chicago Coin). Absolutely stunning. Looks new.
River Boat - 1964 (Williams)
Teachers Pet - 1965 (Williams). Ugly repainted cabinet, otherwise perfect.
FC and CP are at my house in Erie, the rest are in climate controlled storage in Lafayette. FC/CP don't need anything but tuning and new rubbers. The rest haven't been set up in 15 years.
I am interested in seeing these go to someone who will appreciate them. Asking $1000 for CP and FC, any of the others would be well under that.
I'd really like to drop the storage unit, so willing to make a great deal on the lot.
Only have pics for Central Park at the moment, can take some of the others. Easy viewing in the storage area.
My primary criteria when buying these games were them having playfields as close to pristine as possible. For all but Cinderella (noticeable PF wear in a couple areas) and Universe (small area of wear), that's the case with these.
1978 Bally Strikes and Spares. Well above average original, no issues with backglass. Only area of wear on PF is slight wear on ball path arc at top of game near inlanes. Top board of backboard head is off and will need to be nailed or reattached.
In climate controlled storage in Lafayette. Asking $800.
Also have a new CPR repro backglass available (but there are no issues with original glass)
Update: Game has been sold.
Going to be selling my Creature soon. Overall, the game is significantly above average, just under CQ. Don't have an ad up yet or detailed pics, but if anyone is interested, PM me. Game in Erie (Lafayette).
Game has <100 plays since 1999. Slight wear at snack bar which would be covered with a cliffy. No wear at F and M VUKs. Very slight wear at flipper inlanes. No cracks or issues with ramps.
NVRAM installed on CPU board to remove need for batteries. ColorDMD installed, can be replaced with original (perfect) display. Hologram nice and bright green, motor working fine.
Cabinet art almost perfect. Small wood chip size of a dime at the bottom of the right side of head.
Haven't figured out what my asking price will be, but it will be fair (and I'm reasonable). Not interested in trades.
Game working, but couple of Playfield switches need adjustment. Ramps (including Star Warp) are fine, no cracks or breaks. Cabinet head could use touch up in black areas near edges. Left displays not working. (Have new Xpin replacement display will sell at cost if you want to replace all 4 displays).
Fun game. With just a little work, a great Christmas present for someone.
Time Machine sold.
Gottlieb Central Park. $1200
- near CQ, beautiful playfield, great back glass, working monkey.
Gottlieb New York $1500
- CQ, extremely clean, almost looks like it just game out of the box. Only 300 were made in honor of Roger Sharpe saving pinball in NY. 2 person AAB version of Pioneer/Spirit of 76. Includes extras.
Gottlieb Universe. $1100
- great condition, original cabinet paint almost perfect. Back glass animation. Great wood rail.
United Major League (unique baseball theme, complete, needs work). $300
Gottlieb Cinderella $300
- average/above average. Back glass fair/poor, will need repro (available)
Will consider reasonable offers.
Quoted from WesleyCowan:
Might even consider an EM but would really need to be working well especially with the scoring and keeping track of which player and ball is up.
I have a beautiful Central Park that needs a good home. Willing to sell it under market for a local willing to come pick it up.
Quoted from mrbillishere:
This is the reality (unfortunately) due to our new place out here not being able to accommodate the same number of games as my old place could. The dang basement has too many bends and not enough straight walls!
Sounds like your real estate agent wasn't too pinball savvy ...
Flipper Clown and Universe are sold.
Gortlieb New York (extremely rare game from 1976) and Gottlieb Central Park still for sale.
1978 Bally Strikes and Spares is for sale, but I've promised right of first refusal to someone who won't be available to see the game until early January.
Quoted from Dano:
So I found this on craigslist:
It's above the high price range value wise on this site so my question is this. If it's been shopped, LED's installed and killer shape, is it wort paying this much? I'm sure how much I REALLY want it has to come into play, I just wasn't sure if going by the value range is where I should try and stay price wise.
I would say no, but it's your decision that matters.
I have a Central Park and a New York I would like to move instead of putting them back in storage. Please PM if you have interest in either or both.
Quoted from ramegoom:
Any of you guys who want to add a slot machine to your man cave, I have several available. Priced under 800, original early 80's Bally machines originally from casinos in Las Vegas with reels and handles, and work with coins or tokens. These are the real things, not like those Japanese skill-stop machines...! I also have oak stands available and can fully customize the strips with your favorite hobby. Completely revamped and warranteed.
I went up to take a look yesterday and bought one. John is going to customize the reels for me. Will be a great addition to my game room. Great guy, easy transaction. And one of the absolutely coolest showrooms you will ever see!
Gottlieb 1976 New York FS. Very rare game - only 300 made in honor of Roger Sharpe saving pinball from being classified as a gambling device in the state of New York.
Game is immaculate and looks almost new. New legs. Also includes an spare NOS set of playfield plastics and drop targets and all paper.
Listing here before I list in the marketplace. $1400 OBRO. I would really like to sell this instead of breaking it down and putting it in storage.
Central Park is sold.
I have the following EMs available:
Metro (EM) 1940 - beautiful flipperless game
Gottlieb Wishing Well - 1955
River Boat - 1964 (Williams)
Teachers Pet - 1965 (Williams)
New York - 1976 AAB (only 300 made)
If you have any interest, send me a PM. These are all terrific copies of these titles and quite fun, but I just don't have room to keep them. Prices very negotiable. Games are either in Lafayette or Erie.
Someone who used to work with Gilbert reminded me today that the "sight unseen" rules may only apply to games he doesn't have possession of yet.
Just so people don't get the wrong idea - Gilbert is a nice guy with a wealth of contacts that he uses to get games that would otherwise sit neglected in some old time operators warehouse. But he does things his way, and it's OK with him if that doesn't work for you.
Quoted from jalpert:
-Wizard Of Oz 75th Anniversary: Manufactured in November so it has all the updates and upgrades you would expect. Fully working and perfect condition. With shaker and invisiglass. Comes with a couple mods not installed.
Very glad my wife and daughter don't read Pinside or I'd be figuring out a way to make this fit in the game room right about now ...
Great examples of the following Gittlieb EMs for sale. Prices negotiable.
1963 Sweet Hearts
1965 Sky Line
1976 New York (SOLD)
PM for more info.
Collector Quality Monster Bash available. Short of a HEP, you will not find a nicer example.
Game was fully restored. It has an original NOS playfield (not repro) clear coated by Ron Kruzman last year, new cabinet and art, new leg guards and legs, everything disassembled/cleaned, metal parts tumbled or new, original WMS NOS translite (not PPS), Cointaker LEDs, LEDOCD, NOS PF plastics/coffin, new bumpers/flippers, ColorDMD, new custom painted figures, PinBits headphone and subwoofer kits. Probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. Also have various spare parts and plastics I could add too (and a very cool custom topper with all of the Universal Monster figures).
My lineup plans have changed since I commissioned the restoration.
About two dozen plays on it since I set it up a couple weeks ago.
PM if interested.
1963 Gottlieb Sweet Hearts
1965 Gottlieb Sky Line
Both in well above average condition.
1974 Gottlieb Target Alpha (high end, full restoration. Stunning)
Great games for those that love classic EMs.
Will have an ad up soon for an immaculate AMH in Lafayette after I take some pictures. Would prefer a local buyer. Love the game, but need the room for BM66LE and my wife says we have to keep her two favorites (which happen to be games I would sell first). PM me if interested. Donation to Pinside regardless of sale method.
Quoted from Elicash:
You got me curious - what are her 2 favorites?
Must keep the wife happy. My wife hates pinball.
It's pretty amazing how my wife says "that's your hobby", but when it came to paring down games to fit in the new game room how many times I heard "ooh, you can't sell that one ..."
The two I wanted to sell were Haunted House and Time Machine. She told me in no uncertain terms that neither was going anywhere.
I considered selling a restored Addams, but decided against that. I was told it would be OK to sell AMH or Playboy, maybe Addams. Everyone else in the family thinks Playboy is boring, but it was my favorite game in college. Mine is fully restored and CQ, so if I do sell it I'm resigned to never having another.
It's going to be really hard to get another new game if I can't ever sell an existing one. With maybe the exception of one of the EMs - she hates them all ...
I have 6 or 7 sheets of standard playfield glass. Used, but very good/excellent condition. Boxed and free to anyone that wants to pick up.
If there is any one local interested in doing a playfield swap, minor cabinet repair and a general shopping of a game (Bugs Bunny) please PM me. I have a game I would like to get back into shape.
If I can't find anyone interested, I'll have a donor game, NOS PF, cabinet art and most game specific parts for sale.
Anyone interested in a Bugs Bunny game? $700. Will need some work and cleaning - has not been played in some time. It went to HEP for restoration and then my daughter decided she didn't want it.
Game is in average to above average condition but have new side art, NOS ramps, plastics and playfield if you want to make it like new. Parts preference given to game buyer.
Quoted from Mr68:
Hi all. I've received some very kind private messages concerning my status and I'm feeling a little like a drama queen. For now, let's just say I'm selling some games.
Some have asked about the crate builder and shipping company my BBB buyer is using. He tells me it's mostly nationwide and called, Craters & Freighters. He's getting bids now and I can imagine it's expensive.
Interesting side note. My buyer collects only high end machines and has been collecting since the 1970's. Seems like a real gentleman but I've never heard his name before.
I have used Craters and Freighters. Expensive, but amazing crates. The game should be well protected.
Quoted from Whysnow:
interesting. Last time this happened, Stern apparently was not happy.
Given that GEX is one of Stern's top distributors and they have great relationship with Stern, this was a surprise. Stern dropped Kingpin pretty quickly because of the JJP connection (is that the last time you are referencing?), so it will be interesting to see what happens. As last as Stern doesn't do something stupid to "punish" JJ, this is terrific news for Colorado pinball buyers.
I see this as a warning shot to Stern - because of quality and code issues (and probably worse than expected SW sales and what seems to be an underwhelming launch of GOTG) customers want other options. Stern probably didn't care that much when GEX added AP (and maybe even CGC), but JJP is a real threat to Stern outside the Pro market. Since Stern doesn't see the actual buyers as their customers but rather the distributors, it has to mean more when a distributor says "you're not enough any more".
Quoted from KingPinGames:
I have already been in talks with JJ about the Denver show and current KP customers in the Denver area. We are working together (instead of against each other) to make sure everyone is happy.
One more thing that shows you are a class act.
The only downside to this change is that Kingpin probably won't be my JJP dealer as I prefer to buy locally when possible.
Quoted from mcbPalisade:
I tried reaching out once, but heard nothing back. Not too surprised I guess.
I suppose realistically that if/when either or both is available then the dealers would have them to play. Big IF - but Chicago Game did reproduce 2 famous machines so who knows.
If there were good Virtual Pinball X versions I could at least check out the features better. BBB has a virtual version but is far from complete.
No dealer is going to have either of those games to play. Maybe if Chicago Gaming remakes BBB.
Quoted from RobKnapp:
Wanted Batman 66 in Colorado HUO Message me . Regards
Best of luck. The game is turning into a sleeper keeper. Seeing more people looking for one now that the code is getting good. And it's the best pin ever for total theme immersion - art, audio, video and custom callouts. No other game comes close.
Quoted from RobKnapp:
I have had several emails on Batman 66 NIB .But both were in California. No sales tax or shipping cost. It is very tempting as I have to pay 7.65 % if I buy local . I have never shipped a pinball in my life . Sell me yours jfh . After your Dark days for STERN post or whatever . I thought of messaging you. Peace and Happy New Year.
Mine's not going anywhere
Support your local distributor. Call JJ at Game Exchange.
If anyone is looking for a classic Gottlieb EM, I have a very nice Skyline available.
If anyone is interested in a Munsters LE, I am giving up my slot with JJ at Game Exchange. He was almost sold out of his allotment on Tuesday, so if you are interested get with him ASAP.
Quoted from InfiniteLives:
well its been over a year since i last asked so:
anyone have a used Strikes and Spares playfield that they swapped out for a NOS or CPR one?
not looking to break the bank on this one, if it needs some touch ups thats fine. My playfield is trashed and the former owner repainted it very very poorly.
If i dont find one i think im just gonna sand it down to wood and clear coat it and have a blank strikes and spares lol
I have an original Bally NOS playfield. PM if interested.
Sure seems that way. The dumping stopped a little over a year ago. Don’t know of anyone who has the game still on the fence.
The used market for the game was never big in great part to early code status depressing Premium sales and the desirability of the LE (which were truly limited). The LE/SLE buyers that were in early on the game took a huge gamble (which I always thought was a fairly safe bet given Lyman was on the code) and the current 1.02 code certainly hasn’t given anyone a reason to ditch it.
Should be about another year in the Premium run, though Stern just completed one not too long ago. Nice thing about getting NIB now is that you get the playfield and cabinet fixes factory installed. Call JJ and get one before it’s too late!
Considering selling my Bally Playboy. Seeing if any interest here before Pinside ad. Will donate to pinside if sold locally.
Game was completely restored by Ray Johnson (Action Pinball in SLC) for those that know him.
Original boards (NVRAM installed), Sunning clear coated NOS Bally playfield (not repro), NOS plastics, full cabinet repaint (correct colors/design), great original back glass. Game has been in my collection with very little play since 2000. Recently shopped. Price negotiable, but this is not a players condition or project game. It’s not a HEP, but it’s CQ or close. Buyer would have first option on PDi glass, additional NOS BG, parts and plastics.
Preference for local sale/pickup. PM if interested.
Quoted from manadams:
looking for a Batman 66.
JJ is your friend...
No reason not to call Game Exchange and get one new. Newly produced ones have the node board, ramp, joker targets, turntable and cabinet fixes.
Quoted from Stevebo:
I'm thinning out the herd due to a car wreck 4 years ago and have decided to sell my HUO MM. I'm the original owner of the game and it has never been routed and not really played that much considering how old it is. It's in perfect shape, has no mods, original ROMs, but I do have a subwoofer I bought years ago for the game but never installed. I replaced the rings (first time the rings were replaced) and cleaned the playfield a few years ago before loaning the playfield to a local collector that built his own MM and used my playfield to dupe parts for his game. Right now the game has only 954 total plays. We pretty much only played the game when grandkids would come over for holidays although my wife, son, and I played it the most when I first got the game in 1997.
Wow. At least two HUO MMs in Colorado. I thought mine had low plays at just over 2100.
EMs are sold.
All in fantastic condition. At least one could use a new home.
Quoted from V8haha:
Looking to purchase several games
Stern Star Wars pro
Dead pool pro
Iron Maiden pro
Monster bash SE
Medieval madness Remake
If you have any of these machines for sale please let me know. Routed is fine and not looking to pay higher then pinside values.
I’ll bet you JJ at Game Exchange could get you most of those ...
