    Anyone have an old EM they don't want/ anyone want some 70's art?

    Nah, that art is too large for me, I wouldn't be able to trade a small pinball machine for such a large piece of "art"

    I did the same to a guy in Franklin Lakes with a Flash maybe two weeks ago. He had a meltdown. I responded with a sincere but pointed response. Something to the tone of listing an ad "Serious buyers only" but posting crappy photos and detail, along with an unrealistic price. He replied with a sort of recant and 'thank you', then lowered his price the next day. Still too high, but hey - a good pinball deed done.

    I saw that and was going to do the same thing, but I didn't bother as every time you see a listing from Franklin Lakes, for anything, the price is way out of line. Lots of people there seem to be sheltered and a bit unrealistic, or maybe just greedy.

    He started at $5K to help pay for his new roof! I have a HUO one of these that I have coming up for sale, it will be under $3K. He will shit when he sees me list mine on CL.

    I hope he shits before then.

    Quoted from seeburg220:

    This one looks like it's been shot at, as well as smoke damage....and it can be all yours for $2k. This is the same clown that has the CF listed for $5k and it also looks like crap.

    the one spinner looks nice, and I'm sure it'll clean up well.

    Quoted from gdonovan:

    westernmass.craigslist.org link

    The playfield looked like it had been underwater, it reeked of mice and rot bad and when I opened up the coin door could clearly see where wiring had been cut up and several parts were missing.
    If I needed a pf glass or backglass (which is only fair) I might have met his counter offer of $100.. as it was did not see wasting my time further.

    Can't tell from those great pics.

    #5077 2 years ago

    With his initial response, I'd let him sit and wonder why it doesn't sell.

    Why does what you said deserve a knee jerk political response?

    Quoted from VDrums2112:

    His last response was "I'll sell it for 2K before Christmas".... And that's where I'll leave it. He WON'T sell it for 2K. He should just keep it and enjoy it.

    He didn't say which Christmas

    The saga continues.

    newyork.craigslist.org link

    #5379 1 year ago

    Yeah,

    I spoke with him on the phone and he kept harping on that. I couldn't tell him the truth, the kid was so proud.

    I also picked up another machine from him, and while I was there, he kept repeating that he has 13 out of 20.

    #5382 1 year ago
    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    I thought it was a fake ad at first.

    Not fake, but has been changed numerous times. Prices fluctuating, machines changing, originally used pics from the internet. The one consistency is his spelling and grammar.

    The first ad said that he had 4 machines for sale. When I contacted him, he said that one was sold. Well, "it's not really sold", but its a great title (the ad had a pic of KOD) and it's 13 of 20, and his dad wanted to keep it, so they would only sell it for 3000.00. It's funny, as including the DJ, he had three games, not four. I told him about a DJ on CL that is in much nicer condition and asking much less. He was aware of it, but kept the price at 3k. It's coming down now. Personally, I might give him 400.00 for it. The pf looks good.

    I picked up his Volley. Probably paid too much, as I usually low ball and I had to pay gas and tolls and it was raining and it took so much of my time and do you know all of the effort I have to put into this game to get it going?

    Oh wait. That's a different thread

    Anyway, the whole thing was pretty strange.

    #5386 1 year ago

    wait...that's a scam?

    argggggg!

    #5387 1 year ago
    Quoted from RonSS:

    Here's one for only $5,500. Less than 40,000 made!!!! One of ours maybe having a laugh?

    Price is dropping, and an interesting read.

    #5390 1 year ago

    newjersey.craigslist.org link

    Price dropped again. from 5,500.00 to 3,500.00 now 1750.00

    Quoted from egyptrus:

    Here's one I just saw. Not only is the price crazy, I think the phrase "restored to original cabinet" is a bit of a stretch.

    From the ad:
    Very Nice Original art glass, restored to original cabinet, super condition playfield with all new parts. Spin a Card is one of the popular "A Card" series and are next to impossible to find in this condition for sale. Others in this series include Spot a Card, Pop a Card, Drop a Card, Flip a Card and Select a Card.

    From the ad:
    Movies from 1969 when this Spin a Card was brand new Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Midnight Cowboy, Easy Rider and Goodbye Columbus don't wait another decade for that vintage pinball machine you have always wanted. Spin a Card is the favorite machine of many pinball players.

    From the ad:
    Game play features light animation on the backglass when the ball goes into either spin hole the cards flash around and award the card it stops on great fun. Get all ten cards out and specials light for many free games. One of the only games that awards a replay with a drain past the flippers!

    Quoted from egyptrus:

    nice detective work

    He referenced Pinrescue in his ad, as "This same unit refurbished just sold for 5k!"
    Thing is Pinrescue had 5000.00 as the price, not necessarily what it sold for though, oh and yes, this was not a pin rescue restoration.

    says to make him an offer "that is real"

    does that imply he knows the asking price isn't "real"?

    what does "real" mean If I offered him what I feel the game is worth to me, and I think it's a "real" offer, he may not.

    Why not just post the "real" asking price?

    It does look nice though

    chicago.craigslist.org link
    I love it when things are ridiculously overpriced and the ad contains something along the lines of this, which is in his ad:
    "If you are seeing this post its still for sale. If you ask me if it is still available I will not reply to you."
    Trust me, we know it's still available and we're not going to be asking. Your price alone ensures that it's still for sale.

    ask him if everything works on it.

    Quoted from hazmat7719:

    There is a Doodle Bug that every piece of metal inside of the cabinet head has rust. The seller wants $300. It has sold on eBay a few times and always re-listed. I would not pay more than $50-$75 for the salvageable parts.

    it's on CL too. I contacted the seller, he said he could go to 275.00 and then tried selling me other stuff.

    #5977 1 year ago
    Quoted from hazmat7719:

    I forgot to mention that it was/is on craig's list and facebook marketplace also. The other arcade items that he has are in bad shape and over priced. When I contacted him, he informed me that I was not the right person for this machine.

    he's probably correct about that. I'm not the right person either!
