Item description

I received this game as part of an estate. It is a HUO game and I have never seen an original game in this condition. It has to be the nicest original EBD on the planet. In addition, the game will come with a second new backglass (Shay Arcade Group) as well as a second set of sealed plastics (Shay Arcade Group). The backglass and the plastics in the game are original and gorgeous. I will consider cash and games for this machine. I would consider a trade for multiple System 11 games in excellent or better condition. The playfield is immaculate with no flaws. The pics do not do the game justice because of light reflections.
The game comes with its mint manual.

Wow, it’s way overpriced.

#4 10 months ago

That's a Museum Piece!

Quoted from Bud:

Wow, it’s way overpriced.

I will go ahead and disagree with you. EBD is a game that is sought after, increasing in price and you just don't find one in this original condition. The real price is whatever someone is willing to pay.

Beautiful game. Someone is going to get a pristine machine for their collection.

#6 10 months ago

looks like a NIB

No kidding, price is worth whatever someone is willing to pay?

There is a beautifully restored EBD for the same price that has been sitting unsold in the classifieds.

I do like originals, and the op has a beautiful original, but 9k? Come on. I’m not one to price police peoples ads but it’s been getting out of hand lately.

#8 10 months ago

It is nice. This one looks restored also. Looks like the cab has been repainted. Nice job.

#9 10 months ago

Looks restored to me. What documentation is there that this is HUO and original?

#10 10 months ago

Looks real nice, just be sure to re-align the lower flippers so that the dot cuts the flipper inhalf. Just like the upper left flipper is set. Otherwise, shots to the lower targets will be harder than they need to be and alley passes will be more difficult.

#11 10 months ago

9 k! What a steal! Can I buy 2?

#12 10 months ago

Says open for offers, so yes. Not hard to understand.

#13 10 months ago

I don’t care what he’s asking, it’s really nice to see a true time capsule posted. Regardless of price this pin is absolutely amazing!

#14 10 months ago

It’s so nice that the more OCD among us might actually struggle to allow ourselves to play it!

The price is indeed steep, but not worthy of ridicule. The game is one of the best of its era and this specimen is probably a once in a lifetime chance at the next-best thing to opening a NIB one, so it will sell.

#15 10 months ago

Really nice looking game. One question though the coin door has a Susan B Anthony dollar decal but no where to put the silver dollar in , should be in the middle slot

#16 10 months ago

original or not, that's beautiful! the only thing that looks restored is the interior black has a clean line, rather than over spray.

#17 10 months ago

Fantastic looking game but not 9k fantastic

#18 10 months ago

I am surprised the steel plated parts are so bright. HUO or not , i would think those parts would be darker over time, even in a climate controlled enviroment.
No matter.
It is a fabulous looking machine.
GLWS !

#19 10 months ago

Nice game but after closely looking at the pics, the tilt bob and ball are missing, I see shooter lane wear at the top and I have to agree the cabinet was painted. Never saw a Bally with a clean edge of the base paint color inside the cabinet.

#20 10 months ago

I think nice very restored. No yellowing in 40 year old plastics? The posts look new as well. still a great example.

#21 10 months ago

Ever notice the “nicest you’ve ever seen” FS ads are always from someone with less than 10 posts?

#22 10 months ago

From I can tell the SDB has FGE on the tag meaning it's out of a FG.

Quoted from Yoko2una:

The seller can defend himself if he wants to, but he's owned more pinball machines than probably most of us in this thread combined, and has been doing it for decades.

#24 10 months ago

I have a documented HUO BK. Came from Larry DeMar collection. Was in his finished basement it whole life. Doesn’t look this “polished”.

#25 10 months ago

How much would a HEP restoration cost?

7Kish...

#27 10 months ago

Game is nice. HUO? who knows. The cabs been done with Pimp stencils I think. It's been sorta restored. So who knows what is was like before the makeover.

#28 10 months ago

Thank you for living on the east coast, out of temptation range.
Beutiful game, whatever the history.

#29 10 months ago

Sorry... but now that I took another look. Someone wrecked the side rails by pounding the nails in too far. Also rehab on the coin door left out a few things and added a Marco coin plate. Lots of things have been done to this HUO game. Its still a decent example. Price? Let the market decide.

Imamaculate??? To be truly imamaculate it has to be sitting on cardboard in the road.

#31 10 months ago

Wtf....

#32 10 months ago

Real nice example, but HUO? No. A HUO would have the brown envelope with the electronic game manual, the extra scorecards, coin entrance plates etc. Early Bally's had brass keys, not chrome. The PF has lots of mylar. Bally provided just sling shot mylar in the envelope. This has Mylar at the outlanes, in front of the drops and other places. As I mentioned before the tilt bob and ball are missing. Also coin box lid. SDB out of a Flash Gordon. Inside cabinet was painted.

Restored would be a better description.

Oh Lord! While I miss that thread, do we need to go there?

#34 10 months ago

HEP would never let that shooter lane wear there, nor the mylar on the PF.

#35 10 months ago

Ted, For this price I would add the cardboard covers on the displays behind the light board. Who ever restored this forgot to put them back

#36 10 months ago

Just another EBD that is semi-restored. Seller shouldn't have put the HUO tag on it.

Agree with you not HUO. But the mylar is right. Thats factory mylar. I just pulled the Mylar on a nice original like this. It goes over in a triangle like that. Only covers the special insert and the inlane C or D. The factory provided full mylar and then around the pops.

While I would agree that's "factory mylar", it wasn't factory installed. I've seen plenty of EBD's without this much mylar. That was installed by the distributor or an operator, most likely the latter. Bally didn't sell games like Ford, you didn't get "options" like power steering, whitewalls. Base game delivered to a distributor didn't have any mylar.

#39 10 months ago

EBD has been on my radar...

Yes, that mylar sheet was available as a separate part, after the fact. My EBD-LE has that same mylar installed. and while it has kept much of my playfield in good shape, there is a lot of wear at the edges of the mylar (for example, right in front of the 2X target and at the entrance to the 8-ball lane).

Also to note great this is home use only but why keep the original caps on the driver board? If I’m gonna pay triple market I would hope it’s been fully shopped

Id rather get it the way it is and not have someones greasy paws all over it.

#43 10 months ago

Beautiful looking game. If you think its not original prove it and not shit on the guys thread. But on the inside of the cab the black paint has a clean cut line and i always thought they had overspray not a straight line. And the rear of the cabinet looks like it mdf and i thought it was birch or whatever type wood they use on the sides and front of the cabinet.

#44 10 months ago

Best single ball game ever imo, great theme, great game next to a pool table or a bar. Great if you just wanna blast your music and play pinball

It is a nice game. But it's restored IMO. But you are correct the inside of the cabinet should not have a clean paint line. As far as the cabinet, Bally started using particle board in 1981 on just the bottom cabinet rear panel and the head rear panel. Have had several games that show that, it swells in a moisture environment.

Otherwise it get murky. Should an original game have it's OE matching board set? Bally put white tags with a game ID and build number like EBD or EFG plus a serial number to show it was from that game. Look at the displays, they show the same tag number. This looks like it has a FG SDB. Boards all had the same white tag. This doesn't. Does that make it a worth less? Yes to me. If your goal is to sell the sell the highest priced EBD in history (at least what I've seen), that matters. A HUO only game would not have a FG SDB, the wrong coin door keys, a SBA coin door decal and without the correct coin mech or insert. It was restored and looks great, but I buy a 2K example I could restore.

#47 10 months ago

For sure not worthy of a HUO tag, semi-restored, and for sure not worth $9k to me, but some crazy dude might think otherwise.

Out of hand does not even begin to summorize what is going on with prices.

#50 10 months ago

With people paying over 1K for Stern toppers and close to 2K for Lior's POTC HMS Dauntless mod this might be a drop in the bucket to some.
