Quoted from kirkgun:
hmmm. did the ball get stuck behind that dangling broken rubber, perhaps?
Nice playfield condition though.
That ball is supposed to be there, it's a captive ball on a Stern Stampede.
Quoted from Dano:
Why do people see a listing on ebay that does NOT sell and think that is what things are "going for"
That Pool Sharks has been on and off ebay in Florida for about a year. I made an offer on it and they didn't like it so I have been blocked from making any offer, including full price...lol
Quoted from WIZ:
Asked about the fade "I thought Gilligan wore a RED shirt, not a yellow one......................." and this was his reply:
"by golly ur right but thats the way cabinet was made tell u what buy it and ill send u a roll of masking tape and a red sharpie 4 free : )"
I feel sorry for the poor sucker that buys this.
He called me a "Stupid Honky" for asking about the CQ listing.
Quoted from Colsond3:
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.

I tried to post a pic of the mildewed playfield but couldn't get it to load into the post.
Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:
CL lists this in their rules.
"spam; miscategorized, overposted, cross-posted, or nonlocal content"
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.
Quoted from ForceFlow:
ebay.com link » Black Knight Pinball Machine Toy
This BK2000 pin has been relisted over and over again. I think I first saw it listed for around $275, and it has been steadily dropping in price to where it sits at $165 at the moment.
Get it while it's hot!
Well it is listed as a "TOY"
Quoted from John_in_NC:
Your text came off pretty bad, "my time is valuable" Give me answers or else..., kind of dickish. If I were the seller I would have said about the same.
I won't even deal with a text.
I don't have a texting phone, and each text I send or receive costs me $.25
Quoted from HighVoltage:
That's cool, just the odd expression on his face made me laugh! Looks like he's freaked out, someone told him he had to stand next to the pins.
I'm not photogenic either, usually takes a couple dozen to get something decent... Get a better one of him!
He's on the left

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
Quoted from bob_e:
**Bally Capt. Fantastic Elton John Pinball Machine** - $3000
We have a Bally Capt. Fantastic Elton John pinball machine for sale. It has been completely reconditioned and is fully functional. Please feel free to swing by and check it out or call for more details. Wise Buys Resale & Consignment Shop
Is that the X rated backglass?
It's a great pin, and I know a collector that paid $1800 for his. $3000 is high but it is in a retail location
Quoted from Colsond3:
That disappointing...it was mine. Not hard for me to decipher given that it still has my custom keychain on the coin door in his pic. He said he wanted it for himself. And he's a Pinsider, probably why it's not listed here.
It's his pin he can do what he wants with it.
Quoted from bob_e:
Rodeo Shooting Gallery, Royal Flush Pinball, Magnotron Pinball, Flip Flop Pinball and a Imperial Butcher Block Foosball Table. All have been sold recently for $15,740.00 I looking for $9.995 total, CASH, or make an offer.
About right for a retail seller
Quoted from swillie:
If they ever made a SAW themed pin that would make a nice topper.
$3000 and it's yours
Quoted from VDrums2112:
So aside from the fact that he's asking way to much for this game, did this guy never pass English in school? I may only have a high school education, but I can at least write something that is halfway presentable and readable for shit's sake.
And if any of you comes up with some silly ass run on sentence, this entire class is gonna feel... my... wraf! Now, where is A-A-Ron? Is there an A-A-Ron in here?
Also "Wrath" not wraf.
Quoted from Grayman_EM:
I've noticed on some of these rare high priced machines that they will get them working and do all the mechanics of the internals of the pinball but the cabinet has not been touched. If it's over a grand the cabinet should be spotless! EM of course.
A Rare and Spotless" EM for a grand?

That's the opening bid, not the sale price
