Ninety something days away... Whatchu got? Whatchu bringing to deal? Whatchu need?
I might have a project Triple Action cheap cheap... Mebbe a pimped out Genie if anybody wants a wide-bodied girlfren.
I'm looking for an 80s Bally lamp board and a 6 digit display.

Bring it!

#2 2 years ago

I’ve dealt with this hombre before, straight shooter, would do it again so buy with confidence.

#3 2 years ago

If I may have a moment I would like to speak and post from a completely unofficial position and not as a spokesperson of the show but rather as someone who has bought, sold, traded as well as participated in the flea market.

Having said that, games for sale, buys from the floor and parking lot trades have been a part of many Pinball shows and this show will be no different.

It is asked that if you bring a game and put it on the floor with a for sale sign that it stays on the floor the entire weekend until Sunday closing. The show has an amazing tradition of being at top capacity for games no matter when you come during the weekend and having that rule ensures that people who come late on Sunday still have hundreds of games to choose from.

If you have a bunch of stuff Pinball and or game room related then consider setting up shop at the flea market Saturday morning. I hear that this year it’s a covered area, which if you have sold in the past like me before you know your brain started to boil in the sun. The flea market is free to attend and free to sell at. Nothing is provided by the show so bring your own table and chairs or blanket. It “starts” when the show starts Saturday morning but people show up well before the start time for the real bargains.

Bringing new in box rob zombie, bugs bunny, proto skyline em project, new bride pinbot playfield, BOP new ramps, full set 80s Bally boards and displays
Will trade zombie for something or sell

#5 2 years ago

Really looking forward to this show and seeing what's up for sale

#6 2 years ago

Loved the flea market last year (at PAGG). Made $600 and bought my first EM (Aladdin's Castle). Loved the idea so much we're copying it at Arcade Expo 4.0 (Saturday March 17) and expect to fill all 20 spots. I'll be making a trip up to Lodi to sell again.

Also, I'll be bringing at least four pins (can't announce them until after March 1).

What a great venue the board and staff provides at GSPF for buying/selling/trading pins, game room stuff, parts, etc.

Oh yeah, loved how at the end of the swap meet everyone just piled their "I don't want it" stuff in a pile by the tree. I took half of it back to the Museum of Pinball and we've probably used half the parts (with 550 pins at the Museum we're always needing nearly any donation).

See you in May !

#7 2 years ago

Following fireball2's lead (great guy!), I will be bringing a Williams #Big Daddy and a Bally #Twin Win to the Swap Meet. BD was fun to find and TW was part of the Steve Charland collection.

I wanted to do both of these projects, but another potential project has my eye so both of these can go. Just not enough time for all of them. I guess that this is easy come, easy go.

Can't post pictures here, but will be happy to take some over the weekend and PM them to whomever wants them.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Dibbies withdrawn on @jbovensi 's fine Big Daddy. My new Title Fight took all my funds.

But...

If anybody is interested in a piece of pinball history, I have one of the first solid state machines made... Allied Leisure's Boogie! Working but a bit wonky now and then... Pics are on ipbd - yes it's that machine, except it has two replaced displays and other improvements. Really fun. I also have a bunch of extra parts for it.

Mebbe 500…? Delivered to GSPF...

The Golden State Pinball Festival has a Swap Meet! Did you know you can find bargains galore at our swap meet? Did you know that this is a great place to sell your extra parts, fun ephemera, pinball machines and more? It's easy! The swap meet takes place Saturday during the show starting when we open and goes until the sellers pack it in. There is NO cost to sell at the swap meet and no cost to shop, its FREE! This year at our new location the swap meet will be in a covered area as well, which is a HUGE deal if you have ever baked beneath that sun trying to sell your stuff at a previous show. Nothing is provided, so bring your own chairs and table if you wish.

Looking for a player's Heavy Metal Meltdown.
Fireball2 and Skill Pool will have "open to offers" signs on them at the show while you play.
Also bringing a legless project Triple Action for the flea market. Super clean mechs and interior; no gunk or frozen mechs, bg about a 6-, pf 7+, cab 5. Haven't even plugged it in yet, but like I said, it looks super clean inside.

Also will bring Boogie, if anybody expresses interest. And a sweet Genie with hot coils and a Pascal motherboard could be on the block for the right trade/price (bg:7+, pf:9+, cab:8).

#39 2 years ago

Booked a room and took Friday off...definitely going. New to the community and looking forward to meeting folks.

Looking for an HUO Aerosmith Pro...and Sorcerer...looking for more but those are two I would buy at the show.

Wondering....

Is Stern coming with Iron Maiden?
Will Chicago Gaming show up and announce #3?
Would love to check out machines from Spooky and Jersey Jack.
Will Alice Cooper show up?
Would love to know if Robert Gagno is coming. My daughter is 17 and has autism and we would love to say hello to him.

Have a Maverick I like but would trade...one issue....slow paddle wheel...but a nice machine.

See you next month!

Hold the phone! I just picked up an Excalibur! And it has an NOS spare playfield as a bonus. The installed playfield is great, so I would be selling the spare to help finance the machine itself. PM me if'n you are interested. I could deliver to GSPF.
