So I have a chance to buy this Top Card for 600.00. Im not sure what the Top Cards are getting now a days. I assume this is probably a fair price.? . Back Glass has some minor flaking. Playfield very nice and cabinet is above average. I'm sure it will need cleaned adjusted ect.

Playfield looks above average for most Top Cards. Backglass faded and flaking. Cabinet, nicotine damage (may or may not go away). Metal looks above average.

$600 sounds about right for fully functional. $500 if not working.

Don't let it get away. The playfield is really nice. Top Card is surprisingly fun for what it looks like.

It's a very fun game, and this one is pretty decent. I'd offer $500 for it, but even $600 isn't a bad deal for that one.

I sold mine a couple of years ago, cab repaint, playfield restoration and repro backglass, for $2200.00.

All it takes is the right buyer.

For this game, probably $6-700.

$600 is a good price for that title. I have had and sold this title twice and got more that that each time .

Buy it .

450. I'll be the devil's advocate on this. I bought my Top Card early in my collecting career 6 years ago, and sold it for same as I bought it: 200. And the backglass was nicer while the playfield and cab were worse. It's a fun game, but it's a BORING game very quickly, as the standups are too far away to provide much randomness. Also, in 6 years, I've never heard ANYONE say "HOT DAMN A TOP CARD, I'M BUYING THAT RIGHT NOW!"

If you're gonna pay 600, the ONLY reason would be because you want a tolerable, original cabinet...and that's one of the *very* few I've seen on a Top Card that doesn't make me want to retch.

If Top Card is one of two games in your collection, it's going to get boring. Just like any 2 game collection.
