For sale: Addams Family Gold (Special Collectors Edition), T

Added: July 1st, 2018 Ended: July 26th, 2018
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

I have up for sale my very nice TAFG that was routed at one time but is in very nice condition. The lock bar & rails had some tarnish when I got it years ago so a NOS bar was purchased and new rails but back in the day the high polish was not available so a matte set bought & installed. I did purchase a set of Mike Chestnut rails later but never installed so those go with the game. No mods, no LED's; this is all original. Only change I made since I do not do LED's was to install a clear main ramp to brighten up the corner. Also added a gold knob shooter rod but I have a stock black flat back if you want that installed instead. Plaque 076 is on the front & matching certificate in frame. This is a genuine Gold with the serial # on the playfield (visible under black light) matching tags on the game so, don't get fooled by the regular Addams that made into a look alike a Golds!

These don't pop up very often, should sell quickly.

Nice looking game.

So just how does a TAFG end-up on a revenue route?
(I would have loved to be in the op's office the day someone said, "We don't have another Raven or Genesis to put out to make some money, so let's just send that Addams Family Gold out").

GLWS.

That is a beautiful game. GLWS

Back in the day this stuff was just capital equipment to the operators and they ran it! The operator I got it from way back actually had six out on location so I went around to inspect each on location and picked out the best one. All were pretty nice but this one stood out from the pack!

I did see a Gold still out on location in an arcade out in the Cleveland area last month & man was it ever hammered! I actually know that operator and my guess is he would want more for his game than I am asking for mine!

Hard to imagine routing a collector edition TAFG, i guess back then it didn't matter as long as it was making quarters. I own #0950 and it was also routed, the cabinet took a little beating but the playfield must have been tough it is super nice. OP thanks for telling us about the black light trick ! I had to check mine and sure enough it showed up.

I don’t think the uv ink was from the manufacturer. My sttng had this and I was informed it was from certain distributors back in the day. Something about tracking games in an area or something

#8 2 years ago

I doubt any distributor had the tech to do that back in the day plus the number is under the coating but who know you could be right?

#9 2 years ago

Oh crap, why does stuff like this come up when I don't have the cash on hand! Had a Gold years ago, would be nice to get one back again plus it would be an easy drive too! All I have left from when I had one is the original game manual! Very nice looking game, GLWS!

At an operators today whom I deal with locally and spotted an original gold manual so I am sure I could do a deal fir if the buyer of the game wanted that as those are tough to find.

#12 2 years ago

I can't believe this has not sold yet, a true collectors must have machine. Maybe the price bubble has now peaked.

#13 2 years ago

Lots of interest so far but no one pulling the string on it yet so will bump it this evening with an incentive to push them over the top!

#14 2 years ago

Glws - a rare gem!

#15 2 years ago

4th of July bump and temp price drop to $9600 for anyone who can pickup today through Sunday! I am on vacation rest of the week doing work around the house so I'll be available just about anytime you want to come out to liberate this game this Independence Day week!!!

I'll give this a bump as I saw it today when I picked up a Demo Man from PBpins and TAFG plays as good as it looks! Wish I had the cash!

#17 2 years ago

This is a nice deal, I paid more for mine!

Thanks, enjoy the Demo Man!

When I bought mine new I am pretty sure it was the same price as any other pin so if an operator was looking for an Addams family to route probably didn't matter to them if it was a limited run or not. If the distributor had them to sell then they wanted to sell them.
