Quoted from JoeNES:
If it was for the Earthshaker? I think it was! No hard feelings, I hadn't joined PS yet! But it reinforces my point: better to just stick to the pinball community directly rather than chase the elusive "steal" on CL.
Hopefully you aren't the one who offered $800, because if so I have a special name for you in my phone's address book. I ended up trading + cash for a coin-op air hockey - and the family is quite happy with it.
Good luck in your search - I'll just give you a bit of unsolicited advice- It is easy to buy pins. Better to wait and buy what you want instead of just buying and assuming you can sell later as its often harder to sell. They'll come, and at the price/condition you want as long as its reasonable. Don't stress on C/L - I've bought a few and sold a few and met some good people. Join the local facebook groups for Austin and the other Texas areas and subscribe to the DFW mailing list as well and you'll find what you want eventually.
One last thing - the steals on craigslist are very very rare, and you better have a notification service, cash on hand, and a fast car if you want them! I've decided not to worry about chasing them.
