    Quoted from robin:

    So I have been thinking if it is worth that effort or I should just build another price check feature. The old price check was based on finished Ebay acutions. As most of us know, Ebay is not always the best indicator of pin prices. Maybe we should have some sort of crowdsourced pin pricing index? Where we, the Pinsiders - or at least a subset of trusted Pinsiders - would be able to input our guesstimates for what a game is worth. All inputs would be open and therefore abuse would be easy to spot. As always, I'm open for thoughts and ideas

    I think you have to standardize condition along with estimate of value, if you are going to use an estimate of value, it should be for nice very very good condition game, then obviously high end restores are worth more, beat up/routed games are worth less. How exactly you are going to get this number and make it somewhat legit, way beyond me. Can you take the prices out of Pinball price guide and put them in, at least that is something and while not always exact is a decent number
