I know these are hard to answer, based on condition and geography, but am curious what you guys think a fair range is for a good-condition 1973 Gottlieb King Pin wedgehead?

Might have tracked one down but am not sure what a fair offering price is. Is this a $400-$500 game? Or a $900-$1,200 game? Or something else?

$ 500 in " good condition " the following are JMO

if the back glass is sharp and there is no wear on the playfield I would say $650.00

The above and a nice cabinet and a clean no dents coin door also with clean shiny legs $750.00

This is an average playing game, after awhile you will grow tired of it ( I did ) but I like the look and the theme. A fun game. but ...

Let us know if you buy it and what you think of the game play ?

It's in my collection, would have to agree for the most part with Brian about price for this title... I paid $800 for a lovely example... however I'm not sure I'd pay $500 for a good condition unshopped game - would have to a tad better than "good" IMO.

There was one for sale at TPF 2015 for $2000.00 in good condition, but I passed. Got mine for a little less in the same condition but prices are all over the place. Really depends on how much it is fixed up mechanically and cosmetic condition. Personally I don't like waiting for a specific title I want and just buy what I like at a price I feel is fair, but everyone is different.

500-650 dollar game on average.

Yeah a guy in my area approached me today and said it would take "more than $1,000" to get his game from him. I told him I couldn't pay that much. Surely I can find a decent King Pin for $650-$750 in my area. I'm a patient man...

You get what you pay for. Expect a $400-$600 machine to be beat to hell. Its been a long time since I have seen that title for sale locally

I see King Pins come up for sale constantly. You will find a better than player condition one for 600-750. For 1000 it better be perfect or close to it.
