    Item description

    This machine has been in the same basement since the late 1990's. The owner had never even seen the playfield with the glass off, tipped up. The machine never worked correctly as it kicked two balls into the shooter lane and your ball ended when you lost one (One too many balls was installed when it was originally setup) resulting in extremely low play. If I wasn't singularly obsessed with B/W DMD era pins it wouldn't be for sale.

    I didn't even so much as wipe it down before taking photos, yet there isn't even a hint of a ball trail anywhere.

    Will consider trades for 90's era BW titles. Cash on glass, local pickup only.

    Pros: It's flawless.

    Cons: I'm asking over market, the rubbers are 20+ years old.

    MPU has NVRAM and inspection by Chris Hibler
    Full LED bulb/flashed conversion
    Color DMD installed (lcd)
    Titans installed

    if youre in the market for photos of a glorious Apollo 13 I could arrange a professional model shoot for it but your going to have to provide your own frames.

    #4 1 year ago

    I see what you did there...13 pics for Apollo 13! Nice

    #5 1 year ago

    Pal your pictures are horrendous does your basement cave and it have any lights..PaL. 6k is the price of a new in the b0X StErN...

    #6 1 year ago

    Shooting for the moon on this one!

    Good luck with the sale! Great looking machine!

    Quoted from Geddy2112:

    It is literally in a basement cave. I'm remodeling my house on the first floor above the basement, which includes pulling new circuits back to the panel through the basement ceiling. There is only one active light bulb in the basement. When i get time I'll roll it out into the sun to take more photos.

    Just ordered some Titans for it as the rubbers just crumble in it during play testing and the wife wants to put a few games on it.

    #9 1 year ago

    Titan Rubbers came in so I took some more photos. I have not shopped, cleaned or even blown the dust off this pin. It has been played so few times there isn't even the hint of a ball trail anywhere. It's like it just came out of the box.

    #10 1 year ago

    Still underpriced with that price jump.

    #13 1 year ago

    Definitely a clean looking pin.

    Good luck on the sale.

    #14 1 year ago

    i'm waiting 'til next month when the price goes to $7500 before I even consider making a bid.

    #15 1 year ago

    Only pinball machine in the world with an 'Install 13 Balls' sticker and they got it wrong?!?

    #16 1 year ago

    Dang, I guess I sold my HUO A13 for way too low at $2300 a few years back! Eh, I only paid $800 for it though...it's all good. TOOOO THE MOOOOOON!!!!!

    He's here on pinside and he's the go to for a lot of pinsiders for board repairs. He has also spent a lot of time helping people troubleshoot pins here on the forum.

    And to think I shied away from this title many years ago because IMHO I figured it would be 13x the service problems. But hey that's just me. At $6,400 it works out to $492.13 per ball, LOL.
    GLWS, nice looking game.

    Same basement since the late 90's: Excellent.
    Still was once a location game.

    Good game, not worth this price.
    There is also no such thing as a flawless Apollo 13.

    I LMAO at this!

    #26 1 year ago

    Not a hint of ball trail? You sure about that?

    Quoted from ejg10532626:

    Still was once a location game.

    Really, how can you tell? I'm not seeing any of the telltale signs.

    There’s not a chance the pricing sticker was applied at the factory?

    Is this the 14 ball version?

    It was never a location game unless it was in a location where it got zero plays

    Looks pretty beat up to me. Must have been routed and got the crap played out of it. GLWTS!

    It’s a beater but I did a pretty good job photoshopping the pix

    I’m waiting for the price to go up more, then I’m a player.
