    Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

    Yes. Buy low, sell high....selling at this time. No buy.

    I don't even like selling an any more. Stuff I sold last year i couldn't buy back at the same price.

    Yes, but that's been the case since day one for me. I try to keep my hobby budget neutral, and I've bought and sold my way to a collection that I'm very happy with, mostly buying junkers or otherwise nice games with a major issue or two. Restoring and selling the majority, and only keeping the games I really, really like. Once, paid asking price for a nice, fully working game. It was gone for the same price in two months. The experience just wasn't the same. Even if I had the $100,000 it would take to buy my top ten favorites in top condition, I don't know that I'd do it. I enjoy the chase and the repair work too much.

    The upside of the recent inflation is that now my collection is really worth what I've been telling my wife it's worth for years...

    High prices aren't the only thing influencing pinball purchases.
