First of all, I am not sure where to have made this post. I attempted to do Pinball for sale yet it wanted me to make a marketplace posting. I don't know where the rules are for Pinside but I believe if these are expected to end up at low prices a market place add is not required. Please direct me if I am wrong and I can make any adjustments that are required per Pinside rules.
After announcing that I would have some project pins up for sale I received a lot of messages asking about when they would be for sale and how much I would be asking. Normally I do not mind setting a fair market price on the games I sell, however these are project games and need some attention. I am not comfortable setting a price on a game that I know so little about so I believe the best approach is to do something that is now so rarely done anymore, a real auction. I am going to start this first group of pins at $10 with no reserve and let the public decide what the games are worth. I don’t remember the last time someone offered pins with no reserve and at such a low starting price. So I have decided to roll the dice and create a little excitement as this should be fun to watch and interesting to see where it all ends up.
All pins and arcade games usually end up on the facebook page prior to pinside or ebay, so if you prefer see what is to come now and in the future please follow the facebook page here.
Some of these literally need to just be shopped out while some of them need some additional attention and or are missing a few things. I have spent no more than 5 minutes per game to provide a brief description of the games and their various states to help people determine the value of each title. I am attempting to pass on project machines to the collectors and hobbyist out there rather than shop and retail every pin. I ended up over paying for these games from an operator friend of mine. Sometimes I get great deals and other times I lose as in this case. I hope you all enjoy the auctions and good luck to you.
The first round of games to be auction off at $10 with no reserve are:
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
Monday Night Football
The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle
The Game Show
Viper Night Drivin
These are scheduled at 5 minutes apart and will start being active as of 11:40 CDT.
