Some of mine
Working on a Capt Card. This machine is sold already. The Playfields on theae are usually rough. This one is in amazing condition.
I may get this one shopped out next.
This is an add-a-ball version of Pioneer. It that was made in celebration of the 1976 lifting of the laws that banned pinball in New York State. They only made 300 of them. Tough to find, especially in nice condition.
I just like it for the rarity. It also has lots of drop targets which is a plus. It also has some historical significance. The Backglass is near mint. The cabinet is also really nice.

Don't ask me why I posted that pic...
The PF on your Pioneer looks to be in real good shape. They are usually worn pretty bad near the hole in the extra ball/double bonus/special lights area. Excellent!
Please let us know how many games are on the counter when it's convenient for you to check.
This is how mine was before fixing it:
It is a New York not a Pioneer. Basically same game, but it is An Add A ball version. Only 300 were made.

Before i started collecting pins, i was into EM arcade games. I sold my collection, a while back, but always regretted selling my Whiry bird. I recently found another. I won't be selling this one anytime soon. Challenging game to play, and it just looks cool.
These are all long gone, but figured if show off my old EM Arcade collection. Most of these are very rare. I lived having them, but keeping them running and finding parts was a full time job.
And a few more from the archive. I bought 28 machines from an arcade that closed in 1976. Most of the machines were rough, but a few were really nice rare games.
I had the Williams 10 pins fully restored. It took 2 years. When I finally got It back, inset it up in my living room. Another collector came to look at a pinball machine and "had to have it" . Lets just say he made me an offer that was too good to pass up. I Love that machine though.
The blast off looks beautiful. I wasn't into Williams games until I saw that in person.
Working on a lawman for someone. my friend did the cabinet paint work and I did the Playfield.
Lawman Is the 2 player version of Atlantis. Great looking machine. I have a few projects to complete for clients before I can start on my own games. I picked up a really nice Atlantis. Can't wait to get it done. If you are attending the Allentown show, I will be set up inside with my friend that does cabinet repaints. If you are interested in Having any cabinet work done, stop by. We are planning to brig at least one machine that we worked on together at the show.
My Machines have been in storage for several months. I am finally starting to set up my Gameroom again.
I am looking to sell or trade my Williams Spooks. The game works well. The gun, Backglass, and coinndoor are nice. Someone repainted the cabinet. It is presentable, but not a professional job. This is a tough machine to find. Asking $900, but open to trades. Located in NJ. I can ship this machine anywhere in the US.
Todays haul. Second one in the past month. I think they were both from the same operator. Both came from New Jersey
Just got this last night.it has a Really nice Playfield. I will swap out my other Playfield and keep the better one. If anyone is interested in trading, I will be offering my second JokernPoker EM
Today's find! Really nice original machine Backglass is plexi. Probably a shay repro.
Glad you got it. I was one of those callers. It looks great. If you shop it and sell it, let me know . I'm definitely interested.
Not Pinball, but EM. I've had these in storage for a while. I finally set them up over the weekend
Quoted from Vic_Camp:
Nice game. Good player. Great addition to the collection.
There was one at the 2005 Allentown show that a collector brought who lived in NJ. It sold quickly.
This was my machine. It was the first pin that I ever owned. I didn't know anything about machines at the time. It had changed hands 2 times that morning before I got it. As soon as I bought it, someone offers me $200 more than I paid. I kept it for a while, but i eventually sold it to another collector. It was in amazing condition. I always regretted selling it.
