My first pinball that I remember playing - Bally Eight Ball. On local CL.
Hilarious price for the condition. My opinion - worth around $500. Where do they get these prices?

#2 3 years ago

haha! Look at that wear on that PlayField! Its like above retail.

#3 3 years ago

I'd say $500 is top limit if everything works.

#4 3 years ago

I think you can ad this one to the list too.....CC for $2K .....um yeah, sure.

My sister lives out in CA and she forwarded that to me this morning asking if I wanted her to go look at it for me. I told her not to waste her time. If by some off chance it was a real ad, someone is going to get a hell of a deal!!

Who is Benn? And why is he asking $2750 for an Evel Knevel?

the laserball is at least HUO and super clean.

the pirate home unit is hilarious.

that 8 ball max 7-800 in that condition.

6-24000 what pennies? lol

#13 2 years ago

In the zizzle pirates ad I like how he lets you know that you could offer more than the $1000 he's asking to insure you get it. Or you could go and buy 4 NIB ones for the $1000 you're going to spend on this used one.

I sometimes wonder if people just do quick searches for pirates pinball and don't notice the difference between their zizzle home model and the full sized commercial one. Of course, I wouldn't pay $6-$24K for the commercial one either.

The only way I could see a Laser Ball being worth 4k is if it included $2500 in the cashbox - regardless of condition.

#15 2 years ago

I guess I have a soft spot for laserball and the lady in red! lol

We get some ridiculous craigslist ads here but this might be the greatest ad I have ever seen. I usually laugh pretty hard at just at the run of the mill Ddemolition Derby Collectors Item RARE!!!!!!!!!! pinball machine for $500 but this takes the cake.

#20 2 years ago

Here you go....worth a laugh for the location alone.

Theres people stupid enough to buy it, so why not price it high.

#24 2 years ago

I had this zizzle years ago, I bought it for $100 bucks, put in LED's in the backboard after some modification. Then it started not working, so I posted an ad saying trade for gumball machine and it wasn't working. So that's what happen after a week a guy called said he had a carousel gumball machine, 100% working in good condition. I told him about this zizzle, he said he was gonna gut it and design his own theme. We did the trade, and had the gumball machine for 6 years now. Brand new they were $250.

#25 2 years ago

This are all great. People are crazy. Wonder if they are just trying to rip someone off or if they are just clueless.

Classic. I'm thinking people must be coming in from surrounding towns to spend 4k for this heap...

#28 2 years ago

There was a $200 non-worker meteor that didn't look to be in bad shape here in Houston this week. Sometimes it cuts the other way.

Goats??? That explains why it 'needs new wiring'.

I would have been all over that.

Laser Ball for $4k LOL
burlington.craigslist.org link

that's funny right there. Laser Ball was one of the 2 games I actually lost money on back in the day. Had $275 into it. Fully working , freshly shopped, in good shape all around. Couldn't get $250 for it.

#34 2 years ago
Quoted from dothedoo:

I would have too had I had room. I have two racing arcades coming in this weekend and am completely out of room.

Dammit, after watching the TNT Amusements video on youtube, it would have been a cool piece to grab.

Douche. You, not the CL guy. The CL guy is overpriced, yes, but how the f--k can anyone look at that and even joke it would be worth more as firewood than preserving, other than a lame attempt at humor..

This is perfect lets ship them all to Texas so Frax can play them with his friends.

Now that's funny and so is this:

Another laser ball originally posted for $250 last week.
I replied and was told I am in a bidding contest and the current bid is $1500.
The next day I got a call because no one else showed up!

How about a nice "Charlie,s Angels" for $6800? I'm just guessing it's nice, based on the price. Not much other info in this ad other than a bad stock photo.

Although not a seller, I like this one.

Especially this bit: "I can do renovations, paint, bring your daughter to prom, walk your cat and cook a mean lasagna."

#50 2 years ago

This one has caused me to click a few times (I can never remember what it is from the title).

Disappointed every time.

I don't know why I should be disappointed, after all, it has all the bells and whistles. Really? All the whistles? Must be a good deal then.
