    Nice playfield condition though.

    I hate when people post any game for sale and use the stock photos, or even worse, the flyer. Then again, there are some people out in the world that still use 1994 Motorola flip phones. Hopefully he takes the money he makes off the game and buys either a camera or an updated cell, or some common sense.

    Flip Phone? I just got a new family plan with these really cheap.

    Why flag it?

    #2050 3 years ago
    Quoted from GreenMachine19:

    Because I'm tired of looking at it. It hasn't moved at all at this price. The Op just keeps bumping it to the top of the list.

    That is no reason to flag him/her. They can ask whatever they want for their machine, and bump it whenever they want.

    No, they're not supposed to post the same ad day after day after day. And in cases where they're overpriced by multiple times what one could reasonably expect - fuck em. Flag away all day every day.

    Doesn't make it a "Scam".

    Quoted from Dan63:

    I know that this about Craigslist listings, but it seems for whatever reason I can't post a new thread like the rest of you and I talked to the webmaster and he can't figure it out so I am doomed I guess? Attached are some pictures of my Topcard Pinball. I've had it about 7 years now and really enjoy it. I actually bought a real Junker for around $200 and on the drive home I got a call from a friend of mine who was selling his Topcard, so yes I bought it. I took the best parts from both machines and made one and sold the other Junker and got my money back. I grew up on this game and always loved racking up the games. I love that knock. My favorite shot is trapping the ball on either flipper and shooting it to the opposite lane when "Specials" is lit and scoring two quick games. I always try to exchange the ball from flipper to the next trying to see how many times I can do it.
    Anyway I have too much in it to sale it and I doubt I ever will. Too much meaning I had to pay someone to work on it when I first got it and of course it cost me over the time I had it, but it was worth it. I would like to eventfully learn how to make the repairs myself. The game isn't worth much as it is. I would say $500-600 maybe on a good day, but like I said I love playing so its worth it to me to hang on to it.
    So my question to all of you is this? Should I invest in a full top to bottom restoration on the machine or just keep it well maintained and leave everything original condition? I wish I had some advance skills to do the work myself, but I don't which is why I would like to learn the basics.
    What would a full restoration cost and what company would you guys suggest?
    Again my apologies for posting here on this thread, but I don't have the access on my account to start a new thread. It seems I can only respond to existing threads.
    PS: Whats wrong with the instructions on the game card? Do you see it?

    That playfield will clean up beautifully with a little magic eraser and a few coats of wax.
    No need to do a full blow restore.

    (google map)

    condition: excellent
    make / manufacturer: Gottlieb
    model name / number: Wedge head World Series
    For the man or lady who has everything... Perfect for the Man Cave

    1972 Gottlieb Wedgehead Pinball Machine. Machine looks like it came out of time capsule. One of only 775 made!

    Only one light not working probably needs new socket, all rubber recently replaced.
    The back glass is perfect, the playing field barely has a mark, even where the balls get fired out of the infield holes. The outside paint is about as nice
    as your going to see for an original painted cabinet. There is a small part on the lower left rear edge where the plywood lamination cracked off, it is smaller
    than a cigarette and barely noticeable unless you seek it out, and a few very,very minor chips here and there. The legs aren't even pitted. I have everything
    but original lock and key, even the original grease pencil to record high score.

    fyi: http://www.pinrescue.com/games/grandslam2011.html this machine is very similar to mine.
    mine is 100% original mint condition. Only new parts are rubbers. Am I Asking top dollar ... yes. This is a museum piece if there is such a thing. You will not find another original pinball machine this pristine. A collectors show piece

    As far as i am concerned this machine is museum quality. It has barely any use. It was in a private collection from day one, and allegedly purchased directly from the Gottlieb family although I cannot prove this. I don't need to sell it so any lowball offers won't even be considered. Just looking to clear up some space to buy more stuff.

    Open to right trade or make me a cash offer
