Game - for sale

For sale: Nice Bally Fathom

Added: 2020-12-06 23:09:43 UTC • Ended: December 10th, 2020
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Price

$ 4,500

I am selling on consignment for a customer this 1981 Bally Fathom. He purchased this machine from Buffalo Pinball who when through everything and made it was it is now. It does have the original playfield on it, but it has a very thick mylar over the entire playing surface and it will not have anymore playfield wear (see pictures). Everything on the underside looks like it has been cleaned, polished and replaced. Circuit board are working just fine, the NVRAM chip is install to replace the battery, displays are fine no gasing out. It is fully LEDs throughout the machine. It plays and sounds great, everthing is working as it should.

I can box the machine up in a box and package then secure it to a skid for the Freight company. I have a shipping broker that can quote me the rates with it fully insured.


PM me if you are interested in the machine,

I've had a few inquiries but it's still available.

And yet it's still decent compared to most original Fathom playfields.

This looks like a nice survivor as it is.

CGC really needs to remake these.

A players Fathom at a players price??? What is this shenanigans?? Priced just right- someone will pick this up, GLWTS!

#10 3 years ago

I’ve racked a few games on this, and it plays as it should... solid player here for sure! I can’t get over how clean under the playfield looks.

#11 3 years ago

For those that have played one...What is it with this game that people find so appealing? I have never had the opportunity to play one personally. Why such a premium price? Theme? Supply? Really not knocking this add. Educate me please

If it were closer I would have already swung over there and checked it out!

Quoted from TomN:

Just a good game. Classic Bally, 2 sets of inline drops, multiball, unique layout.

Like Law says it’s a nice shooter with a nice ruleset, but a big part is it’s also one of the most beautiful games ever made (for me anyways).

People are super into mermaids right now.

If there was a unicorn theme game, it would be even more money

Artwork, sounds/especially speech. The biggest draw for me is the drop targets, namely the inlines to the physical ball locks. I’m also a big fan of the fast feed inlanes, and the fact it has rubbers on the outlanes where you can nudge the ball back into play with a well timed side smack (something practically forgotten in pinball). This is also a great multiplayer game as lock stealing always makes it interesting. The class of 81 Bally’s were really something special. Imo this is the king of the hill, respectfully of course.
Edit: I’m gonna end up talking myself into this sob

Been there, done that. Numerous times.

So tempting to buy this and stuff it in the " better then money in the bank" closet for a rainy day. Somebody hurry up and pull the trigger on this.

If it were closer I'd buy it just to have one in each game room.

Fathom is sold and heading to it new location also contributed to Pinside for the sale.

Thanks everyone for the interest,
