    Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

    tampa.craigslist.org link

    WOW, that is a good one!
    Gave me a good guffaw this morning

    Quoted from Beatnik-Filmstar:

    I went and took a look. Game was OK. Their kitchen really freaked me out though.

    Looks like it is HUO?!?

    Still kinda pricey for a unique fixer upper, in THAT neighborhood...
    But doesn't everyone have 3 mortgages these days?
    Oh wait, that would only apply for a GB pin.
    Sorry.

    Quoted from Haymaker:

    Here's a good one on ebay. Somebody buy this "wonderful" game in "great" condition!
    ebay.com link » High Speed Pinball Machine

    Whoa with a Buy it Now of only $8,000, this pin is a steal, and from a seller with NO FEEDBACK too, I'm confident this is worth my "cash money", I'm going to give the guy my checking account number now!!

    RARE Mortal Kombat "table top pinball", batteries included!

    #3828 2 years ago
    Quoted from marcand:

    Reads add: no pinball in lot of project arcade cabs, but would TRADE for pinball

    I suddenly hear the price is right music in my head from when the contestant looses the game.

    I think people have also seen the recent articles in the news on Pinball "resurgence" and jump to the conclusion every machine is worth thousands! I still like negotiating with folks who say they see them on Ebay all the time... they know what the machine is worth, but they only look at the "Buy it Now" price NOT what machines have actually sold for!
    It's fun bursting their bubbles.

    #4076 2 years ago
    Quoted from jibmums:

    first was a woman who was a schoolteacher who said she could use them in her classes. Sounded like a good home for WWII and Vietnam-era publications.
    This person turned out to be one of the biggest ding-a-lings I've ever dealt with.

    And she is teaching our yutes? Yikes.

    Yes, yes they are!

    #5073 1 year ago
    Quoted from subruckus:

    Oh boy! I love me some "character" included in a good price! Edit: forceflow beat me to it.

    If they used the term patina, it would be sold already!

    Quoted from wantdataeast:

    I sent an email for laughs and this was the response:

    Wow, clever way to generate site clicks, or NOT.

    #5420 1 year ago

    Yea those sites are funny, the final sell price might be low, but the bids only go up in increments of .01 but cost 1.00 per bid do the math it's a helluva lot more than $70.00

    I really don't think 1) the guy knows what a pinball machine is
    2) USPS ain't about to ship one...

    #5884 1 year ago

    I could not resist so sent the seller a litany of questions, I mean they have a whopping 12 for feedback, what could be wrong. Curious if I will hear anything back.

    #5892 1 year ago

    Ah, this one is back on the market, same asking price as before, $3,000... "could use a couple of new fuses."

    10K by Christmas or your next text!

    IDK, I looked at, and reported, all of them expecting the usual empty box or bill of sale or whatever but none of that.

    Quoted from fisherdaman:

    Ahhhhhhh the classic "its rare" line

    I've actually heard Mike, Frank and some of their appraisers say rare doesn't = valuable. Think I've heard that on Pawn Stars too, even from someone other than Rick! I think he tells everyone trying to sell something that line.

    Wish those AP episodes got more airplay!!
