    I dragged my TSPP box into the hayloft 11 years ago... (why?---I'm not sure), but it hasn't held up too well.

    #2 4 years ago

    Yep. Mines in the attic, who knows why. Guess it'll come in handy if i ever have to ship it some day.

    #3 4 years ago

    Nope. I make it into a proper fort and let the kid trash it.

    I saved my Black Knight box and after 34 years it is still looking good.
    Anyone have an older box than this one?

    #5 4 years ago

    If I'm ever lucky enough to buy NIB, yes, I will save the box.

    #6 4 years ago

    Do I save the box? Believe me I've tried. But some boxes just aren't worth saving.

    Got my MB box… not in bad shape.DSC05512.JPG

    I kept my first nib box and now it's only use is to store more nib boxes

    #10 4 years ago

    I will be figuring that out later today/tomorrow. First NIB coming in soon...

    #11 4 years ago

    saved all two of them

    That's what I do. They don't care about the pin but had a blast with the box. We could have a cheap family hobby if I could be happy with the box. Ha

    #13 4 years ago

    With the cost of some of these NIB pins, I'd have to live in the box.

    #14 4 years ago

    Why save the box? Seems like unnecessary rat food.

    #16 4 years ago

    Have you ever seen them for sale on craigslist? Every now and then I see a post for a box for a couple hundred bucks, not sure if its a joke or not?

    Its only a joke until someone buys it… lets just say I know of a CC box that sold for $250 with all the packing material a few years ago.

    They will buy the box so they can claim they have had it since new and its HUO.

    I wanted to save mine, but when my wife saw it she told me 'no way that big a$$ box is going to stay in the garage' so no.

    I was offered 250 for my BK box so there are people that will buy them.

    Quoted from Kkuoppamaki:

    I had a wife like that, the key word here is had.

    I traded up to an LE.

    #21 4 years ago

    I usually get rid of it a week before I sell a game that needs shipped.

    #22 4 years ago

    No, we do not save the boxes. But we did use our last box as a sign for our last pinball tournament and house party. Everyone liked the idea and immediately new they were at the right house.image.jpg

    No, that is like the one I divorced, LEs are brunettes with smaller tits and a bigger brain.

    No, those are called keepers.

    House? That photo leads one to believe you live on a 15 acre estate with beachfront property....

    #28 4 years ago

    I toss mine out. Best to have the space for more pins.

    Perhaps river front, but beach front in Beaumont I don't know about that.

    I'd like to see her box.

    Quoted from RobT:

    I'd like to see her box.

    or at least be stuck in a box with her… a FH box… yes definitely a FH box.

    definitely not SS

    That is why I didn't sell mine.

    Funny.
    The Property has been in my family since the early 1900's
    No Beach and we are about 3 or 4 miles from the River.
    It is awesome that the town built up around us and now we have private area in the center of town yet it remains a bit isolated.
    Great for big pinball parties. And I am sure one will be coming up after Christmas.
    Last big one was October 11th.
