    Might as well ask for the full $6 million.

    Maybe you can get a better price if you buy all three?

    If it doesn't "except" quarters, what does it accept?

    #7856 20 days ago

    While there's no doubt this is a unique game, I always love the extra hype in the writing to try and justify your price. I also love when you quote (inaccurately I might add) what "regular" versions of the game are selling for.

    milwaukee.craigslist.org link

    I don't think it'll be gone too quickly, but here's the write-up, in case it's gone:

    Corvette Pin Ball Machine by Bally. In perfect operating condition. I purchased this directly from George Gomez the designer of this machine when it was new. It is one of the pre production models that included the 4-spd shifter to operate the drag mode. The production machines do not have this feature. I was told by George that only 20-25 of these exist. George also signed the glass display panel. If you are a serious collector this is a rare chance to own a very unique machine. Regular used production machines are selling for $8000.

    On a related note, I tried to sell a corvette game that I had a few years ago and I was asking for $10,000 - of course, my price actually included a fully working, nice condition 1979 Corvette

    #7857 20 days ago

    “Perfect operating condition” - it works. Could say that for any player machine.

    I'm always skeptical of this statement. Couldn't tell you how many machines I've bought that have "worked perfectly" and I end up finding half a dozen things not working within the first game. A lot of non-pinball folks may not know all the features.

    I have bought and sold 30+ machines over the years and I recall 1 electro mechanical actually fully working.

    My most recent add was a PartyZone which was powered on of course when We got there. It has the credit dot showing and I open the door and pull up diagnostics and the guy just shook his head. Of course I offered even less for it and the guy agreed.

    #7860 19 days ago

    “Perfect operating condition” usually means the flippers work, it shoots out a ball, it scores and makes sounds.

    Quoted from SarverSystems:

    That's pretty hopeful...more like "switch turns on, something lights up, and ball is (mostly) still round."

    i will buy every $25 pinball machine you can sell me, sight unseen.

    #7864 12 days ago

    They want how much?

    #7865 12 days ago

    If $3k seemed like a lot, how about $13k?

    Well, that's the RARE version by Balley.

    I think this is the right thread for this?
    Honestly, I’m not even sure what I think.
    This just popped up on OfferUp.

    I've been watching that one, it started at $15k and there were so many spelling errors I was guessing it was either a scam or troll. Down to $11k now.

    Well, forget it, then!

    And that isn't the right price.

    They will be enjoying that pin for a long time.

    #7873 6 days ago

    I dont get it. Why price it at such a high price thats not even close to market value. Do they really think there is a retired firefighter out there thats a sucker and just has to have this game at $7500? I mean why waste your own time if you have no intention of selling it.

    #7874 6 days ago

    When I started reading the comment, I thought it sounded reasonable. Then I scrolled down and saw the price. lol

    #7875 6 days ago

    Wife: "Have you sold that stupid pinball machine yet?"
    Husband: "No, not yet, but I have listed it for sale."
    Wife: " I thought you told me pinball machines were hot right now, and we would have no problems selling it?"
    Husband: "Gee Honey, I don't know what happened. I keep getting all these lowball offers. I guess we will have to keep it a while longer."
    Wife: grumble....

    Yeah, he knows it's not worth that much, but is hoping that he can stumble into somebody who has more dollars than sense.

    #7877 6 days ago

    Willing buyer + willing seller = market value . Might take a few years to find the buyer…

    #7878 6 days ago

    How about some pinside laughs? Fairly confident this is the same game that was listed for $250 on craigslist a few months back.

    He always prices his game at top dollar. I’ll just leave it at that.

    Just replace the car for a pin, and a deal can be made!
