Found this in a machine I recently picked up. If I could only go back in time.

What year do you think this was from?

1996 or 97 is my guess. Absolute best time for deals.

Call them and see if they still have any left.

Maybe ask them to fax you a list of available titles.

According to the CPI calculator, $1500 in 1995 is worth about $2500 today.

That shows you how insane the pinball prices have risen over the years. I'm sure volume of pins has something to do with it, as the demand back then was a lot higher than it is today, but still...

That was from around 1998-1999. Juke Joint Johnny would come to Pinball Expo in Chicago with a lot of games. The condition varied, but they were usually pretty nice but un-shopped. These were always routed games, usually extremely dirty.

Out of business now I'm assuming? I couldn't find them on the web.

Why not go further back, like 1968?

I got a nice Rowe CD100-B jukebox last year for half the price listed in that Replay mag. What else in those lists is cheaper today?

Think Shaq and Viper are close.

I was a very active buyer/collector back in those days. Still kicking myself for
not buying TAF, TZ and others when they were in the $1K range. Assumed
as they got older people would get fed up with paying others to fix them and
prices would go down. Dumb! But did get quite a few others so no complaints.

Actually Johnnie is still around. He has a facebook page. Still sells unshopped games for decent prices.

Some of those machines are way overpriced compared to a list I have from Sept 1999

Love it.

Funnily enough the advert st the bottom of this page was for an Adam’s Family Playfield for $999 and the list price for the entire game was $695.
