    Quoted from Flipper_McGavin:
    I responded to ad an hour after it was posted, but i guess i wasnt fast enough since i see no email reply and the ad is now deleted. Thought I had a chance at being the first since it was posted on a Friday at 10pm. Who is shopping for pins at that time and day?... Unless you're drunk...

    Quoted from Scotty_K:

    Probably the same kind of guy who goes shopping for pins on a Friday at 11pm...

    LOL! I was thinking the same thing

    Quoted from Haymaker:

    Just popped up on my fb. I know spirit is worth money but DAYUM[quoted image][quoted image]

    For once they do have the right to call this one rare.

    But, less than a 100 plays on a 40 year old machine... Yeah... I don't believe that. Where was it stored. Home use only was really not a thing in the 80s. Sure, sure... Some people did have pins in the home. Not like today though.

    But, its really only about 2,500 over priced. As a Spirit can go for 7-10k...
    This is a pin that plays decent. Looks amazing... But, I mean...Even if it was 4-5k... I don't think it would be worth that. Not when you can get so many better options and deeper playing pins cheaper.

    I actually messaged the guy and he was receptive. My concern with that game is the wear around the center display and the possible condition of the boards. He did eventually say he'd take 8k for it, which I feel is still maybe 1k too high but who knows without seeing better pics. so if anyone wants a spirit here's your chance. Not a game I'm interested in.

    Same machine listed here on pinside. For that price, no way in hell. Much better machines out there for that kind of money.

    It is possible. This area was home to many Gottlieb employees and higher ups. Who knows who has what in their basements.

    8k is a fair price for a game as rare as spirit. I mean... How often do they come up for sale.
    With that being said. While the game plays fine(don't know if his does). I'd rather just spend the money and get something like Batman 66. Spirit is a beauty though, and very unique playfield. Just a shame the game plays a bit too slow and plodding for my taste.

    Perhaps. You never know. But, I'm still a bit wary of the claim 200 plays in 40 years. Original battery too?

    Yeah somebody who really wants one will pony up, and thats what I told him too. Let the market do the talking. I'm with you though. I'd rather buy a ton of other games for that kind of money, but I get some people get off on having a statement piece. I have HH and BH so I'm set on my system 80 games forever

    I have had all 3, Spirit & HH are gone, only desire is to keep BH.

    If I was rich and had unlimited space and funds. Yeah, I wouldn't mind a spirit. It really does look amazing. And while there are games that play much better, I still am a fan of games of that era and their rulesets.

    But, as of right now. I think I only have space for 1-2 more pinballs in my current house. And so I want to be very picky with the last few. I might let some of my family house some of my pins in their house... As I wouldn't mind saving up a collection and opening up a barcade one day.

    But, that would be years and years from now. And who knows, by that time maybe the pinball market will have crashed again... I don't think so really... I think the novelty of pinball and the kinectic satisfaction will hold some allure. And I think the novelty of arcades will remain strong. So long as you get the right games.

    Anyway... Back to the machine in question. Yeah... It might take a few weeks, but I think he'll be able to sell it for around what he is asking for. 7-10k. Good for him. If that is true and it was a huo... Then it appreciated in value by about 7-10 times what he paid for it. And he really isn't much of a gamer, as it never got played. So not the worst investment... Not the best though.

    Quoted from vdojaq:

    I lusted after a haunted house. It was a game that blew me away in my childhood. Finally got one and ehhh the gameplay is just not that great, is it? BH on the other hand is super fun. Now I'm torn, because I have so much nostalgia and love for HH and its just so damn cool, but its really not as fun to play for me. Plus it just looks great sitting next to black hole. I don't know, I hesitate to say its on the chopping block, but I'd maybe move on if the right trade came along. And Diospinball, I'm with you, it does look freakin awesome, I see why rich guys with space want one, but I'm poor and picky. Sorry, I hate that we're derailing this thread with system 80 talk now lol

    Exact same here, had to have one, bought it, and I got bored of it quickly. The Black Hole is just a tough machine that gets fast. Multiball is not easy to come by either.

    Yeah it’s rare, but... Maybe just donate it to a museum?.

    Wow... I just buy a 40-60 dollar translite... And I more than double the cost of the Raven that I own... Actually almost 3 times what I paid. Hell... Shipping was about 1/3 of what I paid for the machine...

    So I think I'll go to ebay and buy an alt translite...

    Raven is a fun game. But, not 3.5k worth of fun. For that price you should be able to get about 2-3 sys 80 gottliebs.

    #6969 41 days ago

    Hahaha!

    The Spokane Raven.

    To be fair enough to the seller, it is located just about smack dab in the middle of a veritable Pin Desert. There are not a lot of chances at pins in the Intermountain West.

    But still, crazy overpriced.

    3k for a Space Shittle with a roached playfield - WOW, what a deal! I got screwed buying it from Amini's, so I'm going to pass the screwing on to you!

    Actually $3K for a Space Shuttle in "perfect condition" is not a terrible deal.

    You just need to have a different idea of "perfect".

    Always love the ads when they can't even be bothered unloading from the pinhauler before posting for sale.

    In automotive circles we jeer flippers who still have the car on the trailer from where they just dragged it when posted for sale.
