Quoted from Happy81724:
Isn’t their collection value also steadily increasing? They might have to sell something vs continue to grow it but all pin prices are rising. 30k is rare if it sold for that. Many older pins from the 90s are so expensive I’ve been buying new as of late. Any one who has had pins in their collections for a while is sitting on more money than they probably ever dreamed. I could see losing some folks just because they aren’t as passionate as they once were on pinball and want to cash out while they can.
The bright side I think is that with all the increased interest, location play should get a big increase in attendance when the world goes back to normal.
No one ever said you have to own a pinball machine to be into pinball.
