Hey all,

Did a trade yesterday; wound up with a clear-coated Black Hole. Before I get too attached to it, I thought I'd throw it up here; if anyone has any interest, let me know. It's too nice for me to just have kicking around. If anyone's interested, let me know.

I'm not trying to run an auction on either of them, that's not my intention in any way. I'm just not 100 percent sure where to value this Black Hole. I haven't seen one in this shape for sale before; I've seen a restored one for north of five grand (http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/fs-restored-black-hole), and this sure isn't in that category, but it's pretty nice. LEDs throughout, clean, clear-coated playfields, ground mods done, plays AWESOME. Cabinet is good, not great, but also doesn't have any botched touch ups, either. I'll let the pictures do the talking; if you want something specific, let me know and I'll post it up here.

My general thoughts were this, and people can correct me if I'm wrong. This is a pretty nice game. If you want one to plug in, look better than ninety percent of the System 80s out there, and play like a dream, this is probably your baby. If you want one that looks like HEP did it, this is NOT your game. Plain and simple. If it were up to me, I'd trade for a decent B-list DMD, a couple of Sys 11s, and verify specifically, a really nice Gorgar and some cash. I'm not looking to put out any money on this one, so if you want to trade down, please keep that in mind. If I were to put a cash price on it, I'd say $2,700 Canadian; that may be out in left field, but is based upon the number thrown at me by the original owner. When I said I was thinking somewhere in the realm of $2,000, he said he wouldn't let it go for less than $2,500. So, that's what I know. As I say, I'm open to suggestions; I'll let the market decide this one.

Luke is a good Pinsider!
Hey Luke any chance I could look at that Taxi this weekend?

#13 6 years ago

Luke

And since people have asked, I'll say $1,250 on the Taxi.

If Luke picks up the original manual, that I dug up for the original owner, the Black Hole comes with that too.

Hey,

Thanks, chief! I'll get in touch.

Hey,

Had quite a bit of interest on the Taxi; not a huge amount on the Black Hole. I'd rather someone who really loves Black Hole gets it than me somewhat shill it off to the highest bidder; let me know what you're thinking trade-wise or price-wise. Thanks.

Just moving to Regina and love pinball. Good to see other pinball people live in the area.

BH is getting more love and respect,It's becoming a keeper in collections and getting harder to find.

Hey,

Just thought I'd let people know that these games are still available, but I'm going to be out of town for a week. As such, my responses may take a little longer than usual, but I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks again for looking.

Hey all,

If you remembered playing this as a kid, and are dying for a nice Black Hole, let me know. It's too nice for me to have sitting here. We can probably work something out.
