This one has been tough to figure on pricing.

SO, shoot me an offer!

Love this!

Honestly guys, i don't know what it's worth and i'm getting outta the hobby for now.

It was suggested to list 6500 obo. That's what i'm doing. I haven't been into prices in the past bunch of months due to some personal reasons.

It is a REALLY nice example. The game itself is boring i find. But it's a masterpiece in terms of artwork, etc.

Just shoot me a decent offer.

And no, not $1500 and your beater Flash.

#10 4 months ago

This game really is in fantastic shape. I've seen it first hand.

#11 4 months ago

Blackbeard I don't think your price is crazy. I've heard the stories for 6k and 7k Bad Cats sales too. Condition is king- you rarely see nice ones for sale.

Thanks. I don't think its crazy either.

A year ago, these things were going for $3500 for beaters. And that's if you can find them. And pretty much all of them have horrible cabs/decals/fade.

New ramps, very nice pf, and cab restoration should show a decent price.

when garbage bad cats are going for $4500-$5k I think he is very close to were this will sell at and lets be honest how often does one in this condition pop up?

I think most people are just being critical cause i've been a price police at times.

Bad cats rarely pop up for sale. And when they do, they're expensive and beat up badly. Cabs are always destroyed and pfs are rather chewed up.

I love this game. Not enough to ever spend more than 3k on a decent one, though. Yeesh. Market be stupid right now. If getting out is the goal, now's a great time to do it!

Honestly, it's because you likely won't find one for that. And if you do, 100 other guys are lined up to steal it at that price.

It’s mind blowing to see you saying all the stuff your price police victims used to say as they defended themselves from your price police brutality.

Honestly it’s scary. If the market can do this to a former cop we really ARE all screwed.

It’s listed obo. And I made it clear to pm an offer.

I don’t think, given its rarity and condition, I’m way too far off.

But it’s fine. Voice opinions. That’s what the market is for.

Why weren't you this understanding when you were tearing people new assholes for trying to get $3,000 for an Earthshaker? I don't remember you having an "obo exception" back then!

You know as well as anybody that the first rule of being a member of the Pinside Price Police force is that those three magic letters - OBO - are invisible.

Justice is blind!

LMAO you don't know the half of it. Check out this offer I got earlier this year..on really nice games! I think it was a sweet Centaur II and a shopped out Pool Sharks or something...

"Would you be interested in trades. I have a Flash that doesn’t work but boards look ok. A Happy Tour needs a little TLC but plays, Black Jack with MPU acid damage sat for years so it needs plenty of love. Police Force west on playfield where ball drops, repaired ramp, scratch on translite and two areas where points don’t score so it needs love also."

I politely declined this offer but can't blame guys for trying.

#37 4 months ago

Beaters two years ago we’re going for 3500+ If you could find them.

Add in 2 years. Rarity. Ramps and cab restoration, and a nice original pf, and price isn’t off especially given its obo.

And if you’ve never restored a cab, you have no idea the amount of labor involved.

Attack me all you want, but price isn’t off.

#43 4 months ago

I haven’t seen one of you list off what you think this should sell for.

Break it down for me.

Again, first you need to find one. And if it’s trashed, it’ll still be easily 3500-4500. And it’ll be sold in minutes.

Add in costs like ramps and decals. Then the labor, time and effort in restoring.

No one is backing shit up. And I don’t blame you. It’s a tough pin to assign a price to cause it’s pretty rare.

#44 4 months ago

Luckily I was able to refind one less than two years ago for $750. Shouldn't have sold the first one, this one is going nowhere. GLWS

DAMN good find. Restore the cab if bad. Makes it look soooo nice

Oh, I know my price is not going to land me a Bad Cats...but that's also been true for like 7 years now. It's unfortunate, because I have fond memories of playing one as a kid, I've played one since and still like it, and it's very much a game I would do a restoration on. But they're like GD hens' teeth.

I just can't believe it's gotten SO ridiculous that beaters are 4k. I told my wife when CPR announced they were doing playfields we would never be able to afford one now......looks like I was right.
