    Quoted from Turtle:

    Here's another good CL ad for your viewing pleasure:
    philadelphia.craigslist.org link
    Enjoy.

    We laugh but I've seen people selling games on KLOV and in threads here who provide as much info. Seriously many people sell expensive things and don't even spend 30 seconds on the ad. Then they bump the crap out of it and wonder why people don't bite (and it isn't always price!)

    But at $4500 it is the price. Lol. There a blue million getaways.

    Ebay sellers are great too.

    $10,000 by Xmas
    The "holy grail" of pinball
    Extremely rare... (only 8500 made)

    "Ride to Live, Live to Ride." (and get taken for a real ride)

    Stern HD (3rd Edition) was by far the worst version HD game ever made mostly due to artwork.

    Most people sometimes do not realize there were actually SIX different iteration HD games made in runs/reruns.
    One from Bally, one from Sega, and the remaining 2 separate versions (2 runs each) by Stern.
    Each version was slightly different, some with different designs, artwork, or translites.
    Mechanics and electronics were different between the Sega and Stern versions.
    The Bally game was completely different from the Sega and Stern versions and was reminiscent of High Speed in 1991 in design.
    This was bar none the best artwork of the lot, gameplay was "meh".

    The third edition sales from Stern was incredibly tiny on the both runs totally under 700 machines.
    It sold mediocre as a novelty for HD shops in 2004-2005.
    It was a closeout in 2006, which is why this game is potentially still in its box.
    This was a time of "desperation" by Stern when the pinball drought of the mid 2000s was in full force and they were dusting off old designs to remake for potential sales.

    Any game of those runs is still valuable to the right person though at around $3600 in very good condition.
    The game new in box sold for $3200 at dealer cost.
    Not $7700, which the owner simply pulled the number out of his a$$.
    This machine has not doubled its value in 10 years.

    Hopefully a non-collector does not get duped and asks someone they know that understands pinball.

    Attention Minneapolis CL watchers - It's baaaaack.

    Down another $100 since our last visit, and now at just under a quarter of the original asking price.

    Going to assume that it still needs those new "bumper pads" though.

    So is he selling a machine, or the flyer? Odd the poster couldn't provide pictures for a game being sold for $7700.

    #3309 3 years ago

    Impressive tracking price history on this Allied Leisure "copycat" cocktail pinball.
    The game is worth today around $350, if it works, rubber rings aside, so the price is getting close.

    I bought a working errors one years ago for 100 bucks ended up putting in with a trade for game I wanted

    Pinball Machine - $4000 (Anderson)

    Freedom 1776 pinball machine. Good condition. In working order, minor cosmetic damage.

    #3312 3 years ago

    Where do you think that guy got 4000 dollars from?

    Quoted from Spider3582:

    I looked real hard for the center bumper on that Freedom.

    Quoted from Spider3582:

    Where do you think that guy got 4000 dollars from?

    I looked at a 1962 Gottleib Cover Girl this morning that the guy said was worth over $4000. We had a nice chat, I offered $50 and left my number.

    It is always funny when you can spot out these bitter divorcee's. I bet she will take $300 for both EM's and toss in the signed Pete Rose picture.

    Just another CL "auction".
    The pinball plague of the modern world.
    "I won't tell you what I think it's worth, unless you offer more than I believe I can selling it for overall".
    The reverse psychology of pinball buying.
    Rampant.

    The game is trashed, and playfield has a lot of bare wood.
    It will take a substantial amount of effort to bring it back.
    Cabinet may not be salvageable, if the wood is sufficiently weakened due to moisture.
    I am almost certain this seller was a flipper, that bought this out of storage unit or garage trying to sell it.
    Look at the surrounding items in the photos, he is not a broker/dealer/owner.
    The buyer was spot on.

    I guess a lot of people are sucking things now, as that might be a preference to pain.

    #3337 3 years ago

    Damn, I buy all the KISS machines I can, and I don't think I would pay $200 for that.

    Wait, I've seen pictures of this machine before, like months ago in another topic perhaps.

    I knew I had seen that machine before too! Guy must have bought off Ebay , got it home, and realized he had a pinball cabinet of junk!

    Good eye. Yep, same wear and mold patterns. It's the same game. That's hilarious.

    LOL, apparently he bought it from the auction you posted for $1495, and now is trying to dump it! Hah!

    Edit: ... and both links appear to be the same machine, but different pictures!

    #3342 3 years ago
    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    Holy crap!! That is...How can...Did he really...... I am really at a loss for words here. Like what the actual fuck!?

    Well serves him right thinking you can just buy that and flip it. Some people in this "hobby" really need a wake up call like that.

    #3343 3 years ago

    Ladies and Gentleman, don't all rush at once for this $4500 faded as shit GI: hickory.craigslist.org link

    #3344 3 years ago

    Maybe this will discourage this flipper from being a dumbass.
    We have too many flippers right now just like the last peak period in 2001-2005.
    As I have tried to tell others, the next market stall is coming and some people are going to lose.

    I thought that P.O.S. Kiss looked familiar. Shmuck paid $1495 for it !!! Normally I'd be a little sympathetic but in this case...P.T. Barnum was right - there is a sucker born every minute.

    #3346 3 years ago

    Figuring he would decline anyway, I emailed a nice message and offered $150 basing it on the condition to see if I could talk some sense into him. His response?
