Quoted from MrBally:
At least one of the resellers listed is a Dick. About a 400 pound one.
Hey I am a Bob and only recently made it to 340 pounds. I have sold pins and games since 1987 but have been around coin op since 1978.
Not all distributors for PPS/CGC need to advertise on Pinside. Yes it's a great way to sell but if you have been in business since 1988 full time and provide good service at fair prices the repeat business is really rewarding, plus all the additional word of mouth is great. Until recently all we could do is wait and wait and the pins would trickle in. Usually I had a small 200 deposit and once I got the call from Doug I woukd ask for full payment and ship it to the customer. I also have some in stock and people can come and play pins in the interactive showroom. Sometimes they find others they like. A good distributor takes care of his customers with climate controlled storage until the customer is ready and has several different types of vehicles from box van truck with liftgate that allow for pickup at the factory of 8 at a time and can deliver in person on the way home saving their customer shipping and giving the in person set and help which is oh so valuable and helpful. We can even drive all night with just one in a minivan new in the box to make that husband birthday wish come true. I have been blessed with so many repeat customers but I try so hard by doing little extras and it helps. Just because you don't have an advertisement up doesn't mean the pins are not selling. I will be getting 5 more next week with 3 already gone. It's ok to sit on them a few weeks for a call or walk in customer. Not everyone is on Pinside some still use the phone. I do not sell above MAP Manufacturer Advertised Price either call me or PM 7995 for everyone but I do go out of my way to please people when possible. If you don't you can't stay in business 28 years
Thanks from the bottom of my heart from all who have ordered from me or purchased on Ebay under doughslingers back in 1999 to 2005 those were special golden times. I look forward to doing this for 20 more years I hope. Thanks for reading and everyone keep playing and buying from.many of the good dealers who have spoken in this thread.
