Today I picked a fairly nice Paragon / Fully working. Woman handed me all the paperwork, including the original receipt from when she bought it. Came from the Game Exchange of Colorado for $300!

That's great! Paragon has one of the greatest art packages of any pin I've seen. Nice find!

Pretty cool but IPDB says Paragon came out in 1978

I didnt say they bought it new but paying $300 in 1989 for a Paragon is way cool.

Congrats! Awesome score, one of the best ever made! I bought mine from the 1st owner in 1985 for $300 as well

I bought a Paragon in 1989 for $400. I guess I overpaid. haha. However, I miss it and wish I had another.

Gosh, I bought one a few months after it came out when I was 14, talked the guy to take it off the route and traded a Spanish Eyes for part of it, I'm sure it was more than this though, and it was as close to a HUO as one could get, and I had it for a long time, then parents sold it when I moved away to finish college, always wonder what happened to it. You know, it's quite possible the one you bought was mine, as I'm in Colorado and I think my parents sold it around that time period. I wish I could remember some unique marks or what not on the one I had.
