    Abra ca dabra hovers around 2K and the others can be found for 1K or less.

    I sold an Abra for $1000, a couple Atlantis's's's for $1000/1200, and the more rare Gold Strike for $1800...I think El Dorado is a $1000/1200 as well.

    On the east cost, a target alpha or solar city usually go for about $500 to $700. You'll pay much more for some of those other titles.

    Gemini being the rarer of those listed
    may go for >$2000

    EMs lack a paying audience, compete with ADHD and the stricken children due to sugar overload, geriatric pinball isn't hip, and finally those young fresh flesh that work and not nipple their way through life with excuses are far and few between. Roller skates and disco passed along, a long time ago. https://ibb.co/ktJUvv Lets hope and old-shool, new-shool pinball revolution never sees a 6 day war to liberate itself from oppression.

    Simply put and a bit confusing but nevertheless,

    Thank You Super Dave Osbourn for that profound analogy.

    and your next stunt will be???????????

    Yea...........Maybe more like $6000-$7000. Boston Pinball eBay numbers.

    It not just that it is expensive, but they are also hard to find.

    I think it's gonna depend alot on where you live. Some areas have higher prices than others. Northeast is on cheaper side.

    OP, you don't say condition, but Atlantis I think is anywhere from 1200 for a beat up game to 2500 or more for collector quality. One if the more demanded and higher priced EMs.

    #14 2 years ago

    Gemeni to my knowledge is the highest priced EM, then Joker Poker & Mata Hari.

    the crazy thing is I sold my Abra way too quickly. Had I waited That example would fetch near 2500 it was that nice! The market trend is for 3" flipper games 1975-79, ACD. C-37, Atlantis. Team one is a better game than ACD but the art mucks soose.

    The decrepid people like me who prefer 2" flippers, we're a dying breed of baby boomers. And kids today can't relate to those games that require nudging and balls you can't trap.

    I'd agree with everything you said except Mermaid I think is the king of high priced EMs.

    I think a close 2nd would be a Bally Evel Kneivel EM.
