I can remember years ago when this title had a huge price rise. I had thought that it had gotten back down to a semi-normal price point.
This is the same seller @ Mr. Pinball Classfieds that I had recently mentioned with an extraordinarily high price on a Bally Wizard!.
KISS, 1979 Stern [sic]: $7299
The cabinet, playfield, backglass and internals are stunning. All fully working and offer a 3 month return to base warranty. <snip> This is one of the most collectible pinballs and they are getting harder and harder to come by. KISS fans buy them, keep them in their homes and they tend not to come back onto the market. Even as an investment these are a sound choice. If you decided to sell your beloved KISS pinball (which is what it will become) at some point in the future, the likelihood is that it would have gained value.
