For sale: Universe

Added: June 18th, 2020 Ended: July 12th, 2020
Condition: Used - shows wear but 100% working and clean

Item description

1959 Gottlieb "Universe" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, working and clean, and is a very fun to play title from this era.

The cabinet is original and is structurally sound, with just the normal wear and scuffs. Inside of the cabinet and backbox are both very clean with no rust.

The playfield is in very nice shape, has been cleaned and waxed. The inserts are all present, but some could be leveled. Playfield pop bumper caps are nice and all original. The plastics are slightly curled, but reproductions are available. The only wear spots are near the "gobble hole" in the center of the playfield, but this example shows relatively less wear than most. Score/instruction card is original.

The backglass is original and also is in very nice, above-average shape; one of Roy Parker's best and most humorous designs.

All woodrail games will come with a nice set of either metal or wooden legs of correct length, as appropriate.

Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.
NOTE: Please use the following email address for all questions/requests: [email address removed] . Thanks!

Payment methods accepted include: PayPal, Cashier's Check, Money Order, Cash. If picking the game up in person in Alameda, CA we will have someone to assist with loading, etc. If shipping, we prefer to use NAVL.

NOTE: This game comes from the collection of the non-profit Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) located in Alameda, CA, and is one of our duplicates of certain titles that we are selling in order to reduce our warehouse storage needs and to raise funds for the PPM. In addition to certain EM titles from the 60's and 70's, we will also be listing for sale several Gottlieb woodrail titles from the 1950's over the course of the next several weeks.

Wow! What a gorgeous pin! I’d love to own something like this for the artwork and history alone. Shipping prevents me from being seriously interested, though. GLWTS.
