I see Pinside lists Jumping Jack value at 1700. This is a good bit more than most EMs that I see. Is this a realistic value for this title? Thanks for any input.

Totally depends on condition. Why don't you include pics with your request, then we can give you a more realistic value estimate.

It's in good shape but I find it strange that it is almost double what most EMs are worth. I am mostly looking at average value which just seems strangely high so I am wondering if this is legitimate. I know the pinside values are not always accurate but I mostly see them listed lower than what they sell for.

Well, review the archived ads to see what people were putting them out for. Of course, sale ads that are ended are not always a great source of value. Like Dono said, condition is the real decider.

I don’t see that value being accurate based on theme alone.

Historical sales data puts this one as what I perceive as about average EM value: $600-700 reconditioned but unrestored, $1200-1300 fully restored. There are outliers.

Yep, I concur, nice recap.

And the 4-player Jack In The Box is listed at $370-$430, so go figure.

I concur with the other responders. Unfortunately the value means very little without the condition listed. Most Jumping Jacks in average condition sell for under $1K. A high quality machine might go for the $1700 for collector quality or a full restoration, but that would be sold to a very specific type of hobbyist and a rare example.

Hey there! Got a moment?
