The buyer backed out, so this game is back on the market...
Game is in good condition. Cabinet has very little fade (if any). Playfield looks good. There are decals over the fish inserts (done very well). Game plays great. This game belongs to my best friend (and a fellow Pinsider "Mark - wvpinball"), who died suddenly on October 5th of a heart attack. The money from the sale of this game will be given to Mark’s wife. I am willing to ship if buyer makes the arrangements. $2,350.

Sorry to hear about your friend.

I'm a newb, what is meant about" decals over fish inserts"? Where?

I'm guessing West Virginia.

A lot of times the four fish (middle of the Playfield) developed wear through to the clear insert. Someone made a clear decal to match the scales of each Fish and cover the wear. As you can see in the photos this isn't noticeable at all...
I am located in southwest West Virginia (near Charleston).

You are the best friend wvpinball could ever hoped to have known.

Your massive undertaking of selling all 14 games to help his Widow is a most noble cause.

Congratulations to you Sir.

Do you post here too under your own user name?

You need to be applauded for your efforts--added to everyone's Good Guy list.

Very sorry for the loss of your best friend.

Thank you for your kind words. There is NO DOUBT that Mark would have done the same for me. Mark Scohy was one of the nicest guys you would have ever met. Mark never met a stranger. He was always the life of the party (so to speak). Mark and I served as Deacons in our church, we sang in the a Men's quartet together, and we shared a love for Pinball.
Mark actually had 28 games. I am selling several of my games to be able to purchase a couple of his "prized games" to remember him by. Several others in the WV Pinball player club are doing the same.
My Pinside username is "wvpinball". Mark went by the Pinside username "Mark-WVpinball". Here's a photo of my friend at one of the Pinball Shows.
Thank you again, Dennis

Wish I was closer.

Always cool to buy something with a story attached...and that helps out a fellow pinsider.

Bought my Hulk LE from Dennis. We met about half way between us in Columbus, OH. Awesome, stand-up guy and honest seller. I couldn't recommend buying from him more strongly. Terribly sorry to hear of the loss of your best buddy, Dennis.
