If you have been looking for an Eight Ball Champ... this is the one you want!
Low production of only 1500
Clean! Low plays. Original board set. No smoking home. All switches working. Plays perfectly. Perfect back glass. Fantastic playfield and plastics. Clearly this girl got very little play. Still has its original Bally coils, get this it has Bally flipper coils and they are still strong... amazing!
The photos say more than I ever could. I just picked this gem up and have not even touched it. Expect it to look even better after you properly clean and waxed her.
What needs done:
She has no battery acid leakage but that battery obviously needs to be removed and replaced. And although fully functional, if I were keeping her I would replace all caps since the original caps from this era are all past their prime. Then I would imagine a scan of the board pins and possibly a solder reflow here or there.
The only negative I see was a loss of decal / paint on one corner (which is mostly hidden by where that leg attaches). only very very minimum playfield wear as seen in the pics.
Saw almost no play in the past two decades (in the same VERY nice home for the past 20+ years)
No one does a pinball walk through like Todd Tuckey so here is him going over a Eight Ball Champ :
