Quoted from turbo2nr:
A Stern/CGC Distributor, also an operator that has owned hundreds of pins scooped it up for his personal collection in NV. I had Three other buyers in line behind him.
You obviously do not know much about pinball value sir. The Condition of my Flintstones was excellent and totally worth my asking price.
That's why it instantly sold 4x in less than a day.
If you don't like the theme/title then fine. But it is an excellent layout and rules packed with features.
I've sold over 40 pins here, and another 40 on Facebook. You sold One pin and now you are an expert?
I've been collecting for over 30 years and I collect mostly older HUO games from the 70's, 80's and 90's so I have a very good understanding of the value of pinball machines, especially when it comes to nice originals. So F off sir for assuming that just because I only show one machine sold on Pinside it's all I ever sold or that I'm some kind a newbie. The games I collect go for 2-3x the normal selling price because of their condition and Pinside is not my target audience since you need to find collectors looking for machines in that condition. There's only a small percentage of collectors who appreciate the nice originals and most would rather just send a game off to get restored instead.
A perfect example is look how people droll all over your machines for sale which while are nice don't have much original besides the wiring and mechs since you use brand new cabinets, mirco playfields, repro parts, etc. Personally I prefer all original when possible but it's a lot easier for most to just buy a new cab and reproduction playfield then it is to take the time restore them.
Part of the fun for me all these years was the hunt of trying to find these time capsules. I recently sold a machine from early 90's for over 12K when the Pinside average price is only 4K because mine was likely one of the nicest originals in existence. I have also paid out the ass to acquire many of these older games in this condition so have been on both ends as a buyer and seller. So please don't come here lecturing me about not knowing much about pinball value. I expected a so called expert like yourself would know better then to judge someone based solely off Pinside when it's only a small part of the pinball community.
