Local Cali CL ad. Maybe it is, Just wondering..I mean, anything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it, and being signed by all 4 members ( assuming the signatures are authentic) here is the link..

losangeles.craigslist.org link

#4 1 year ago

Not to me.

#5 1 year ago

well also I guess the seller is saying in the ad that he has the original colors on the PF arrows before they were switched.. that might make it little more valuable.. ?

#6 1 year ago

Guarantee Gene Simmons is the one selling this.

Bullshit detector at DEFCON 4.

HAHA Your probably right!

I'll sell my non autographed one for half that.

No.

Are these the 50 limited ones they had been selling from the Kiss website? If they were worth it, they would have sold for the $10K to $12K they were asking 3 years ago.

Or are you talking about the old Bally one that was inflated at $4K for years then lost most value after the Stern was released.

Either way, no.

o-din's False Advertising Million shot thread was one of them.

Looked quick for the other. But an hour means page 2 and I'm not seeing it or remembering specifics.

There is no such thing as derailing a thread regarding a Kiss pinball machine for 21k.
That was derailed form the get go.

Bless her heart.....Shannon had a great selection of .99 vhs rental movies at the local grocery store back in the college days....

No. And I’m a huge F’ing KISS fan.

#24 1 year ago

The only way I would pay 21k for this would be if Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, Paul Stanley and Peter Criss personally delivered to my house in full costume and makeup in the middle of a house party.
Even then they better do something epic like upper deck my toilet so I have a good story to tell.

#25 1 year ago

Nope , not worth anything close to that amount.

#26 1 year ago

for signatures... silly world we live in.

#27 1 year ago

Take a zero off the price and you’d be close to what it is actually worth .

-1
#28 1 year ago

Seems like a small price to pay..

Yeah it’s the Bally one and it is in average ,or slightly better than average, condition for a game from that era . The game is insanely over priced .

#30 1 year ago

Kiss.......... my balls. Hell no.
But I really like the Bally Kiss pinball machine itself.

#31 1 year ago

Yeah Gene Simmons is gonna put his KISS machine in front of his closet door ok.

#32 1 year ago

Hey it's motherfuckin Gene Simmons lol.
Outta the closet he comes.

You’ll be getting more than a Kiss... you’ll be getting the shaft.

#36 1 year ago

Hell no it’s not worth 21K. Notice it’s just the plastics signed....I have an original playfield signed by Ace and Peter....just need Paul and Gene.

When I brought it to Ace he was like what the hell? He looked at me and said where do you want me to sign it. I told him to sign it anywhere you want as I am sure have signed one of these before. He looked at me shook his head and said this a first.

Interestingly enough when I got Peter to sign he said the same thing as Ace....he had never signed one.

It was all about getting the signatures myself which makes this cool to me. As with any signed item it’s mostly the item itself that has value...and the more rare and unique/one of a kind signed item can be very valuable to collectors.

I probably do have a one of a kind item. I have seen cabinets that have been signed......but there are several of those. Backglasses too...lots of those out there.

#37 1 year ago

I looked at the add and he states it is the 22nd made in the run. WRONG.

Bally made over 17,000 KISS machines and his serial number EK11022 makes it the 10,022th made, putting it in the middle.

Wish it were in the middle of a road and run over by a truck then somebody could lick it up.

#38 1 year ago

Also the seller mentions that there are 2 numbers lower than his registered on the internet pinball serial number database as some sort of proof that he has something rare . Games are registered on that site by owners of the games . Plenty of people that own pinball machines do not know about that site , register their games there or even care . It’s a neat site but it can’t be used as a gauge for the amount of specific games that are remaining. Also I have had duplicates of Bally games from that era that have had different color inserts in areas and nothing I had was rare or special . It is my understanding that they changed colors on inserts because it’s what they had in stock and wanted to get games out the door .

#39 1 year ago

Does anyone care about serial numbers unless its something fancy like serial number 1?

Something like 666 Iron Maiden would be cool too.

#40 1 year ago

Everything is only worth what someone wants to pay for it.
If it finds a buyer, than it was worth it.
To me - nope

#41 1 year ago

Picture showing a sample of how a serial # 10000 (and up) was originally punched in the KISS cabinets: "EKI1xxxx"

#42 1 year ago

Each signature if verified is worth about $1000 given its on the game. Much less for an autographed picture.
Value of game based on condition with signatures would be about $6-7k tops.
This price would require a signed appraisal and receipt.

#43 1 year ago

Didn't they try this same scam on the recently released Stern Kiss LE?

Even the guy that owns all this junk is probably laughing at that offer.
