    Quoted from RCA1:

    This is awesome. Instead of contacting random strangers listing pins on CL or eBay, contact this random stranger and he'll do it for you! But only if you are serious. What could possibly go wrong?

    Sound Legit.

    Laughs aside, here's a deadly story involving Craigslist:

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/10/20/saudi-student-killed/17635787/

    Ad sadly, this is only a sample of murders connected with Craigslist.

    #202 5 years ago
    Quoted from kirkgun:

    The stuck ball is in the description the seller made:
    "Very Rare Rawhide Pinball Machine , lights up but ball is stuck on machine,"
    Oddly enough (since it is very rare) there happens to be another for sale on our local CL at the same time (with nicer playfield, for quite a bit less). What an incredible coincidence! Maybe combine both of those rarities and get one working game?
    charlotte.craigslist.org link

    Amazing! He has a Stern pinball machine from the "1960's"! Apparently someone found out how to time travel back a decade with a pinball machine. Now THAT'S an innovation!

    Quoted from boagman:

    I have an issue with that listing, anyway: never seen a NOS populated playfield from WMS of that era with multiple colors (white *and* black) of rubber used. Something's off, I think. Open to being corrected if I'm wrong, though, if any of the designers want to pop in and smack me on the head.

    Are you referring to the black post rubbers? Those and they yellow ones were common even then.
    And the bands on the playfield look like they're as old as the playfield is supposed to be. (and probably turning to dust!).

    Compare to an original flyer picture:

    #223 5 years ago
    Quoted from asay:

    Maybe, but he comes off like a complete asshole with his refusal to take pictures.

    I can kind of understand why he isn't posting pictures, but if they're folded up, how is someone going to get to check them out? And after making a drive to Victorville on top of that. I wouldn't make an eighty mile trip there and not be able to inspect / try out a game.

    #225 5 years ago
    Quoted from asay:

    No way I'd ever follow up on any ad without pictures. Plus There's some creepy freaking people on CL.

    Same here, and even then I'm skeptical. Some people on Craigs-list are not only creepy, some are (literally) serial killers!

    It's not so much as a laugh, but I almost shed a tear for this playfield.

    I like his "update" he posted at the end:
    "..update....THIS IS A REAL PINBALL MACHINE.....IT WAS PLAYED ALOT..THEREFORE THE PLAYING AREA HAS SOME WEAR...IT IS 35 YEARS OLD..IT IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE IT'S 35 YEARS OLD....MAN I HATE SELLING STUFF ON Craigslist"

    No, if you don't take care of it's GOING TO look like it's 35 (or more) years old!

    Fair description and price, but got to love the cabinet and this write up: " target="_blank">sfbay.craigslist.org link
    00707_2Lx0D1yJovN_600x450.jpg
    "This particular machine is somewhat rough. If you're looking for an inexpensive solid-state pinball machine, this is great; if you're looking for a machine to restore, this isn't the one. There is playfield wear, the cabinet has been repainted, and the back cabinet has been repaired from some sort of impact. However, in its favor, the previous owner installed an LED lighting kit, and the hard-to-find central plastic ramp is intact. Most importantly, everything does work, though a couple of the score displays are getting weak.
    What the heck. It's a working pinball machine!"

    What the actual F*** happend to that back box?!? Did someone try to lower it without removing the bolts?

    This isn't Craigslist but Ebay. I'm sure many of you have seen this listing because its been posted on Ebay for years, lol. I guess because it has the drop targets (minus the 10 point switches that are suppossed to be behind them) this guy thinks its worth a million dollars. The playfield has wear, the cabinet has what looks to be white paint all over it, i am going to assume that the boards have not been upgraded and bullet proofed otherwise he surely would have mentioned it, the backbox is seperated and split at the seams, the backglass is far from perfect and its generally a mess but best of all is the "out of order" sign on it. But the one they are selling might not be the one pictured? hahaha So i can also assume if its not the one seen in the pictures it must be worse...

    " CALLS ONLY....Sorry We Do Not Communicate Through Texting

    I have a late 60's to early 70's pinball machine.

    This IS NOT china, taiwan, or hong kong junk... solid hard wood was actually used for the framing and then a veneer was applied to the face of it.

    Tripple chrome plated on base metal trim/castings/moldings, and so not the CHEAP plastic that manufactures learned how to put a CHEAP chrome plating on.

    This is the table top model that measures (will update soon)

    Missing the key for the lock but can still be opened.

    Would have listed it on Ebay and been sold in less than a week but because of the size and weight of these, people don't want to pay the high costs of shipping and so is available for LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY

    Will upload pictures and more information soon since we're still trying to do some research on it and need to recharge the batteries for our camera.

    Will accept reasonable offers

    Located near Knoxville between Steubenville Ohio 43952 and Toronto Ohio 43964 off of State Rt. 213

    If interested please call 7Four0 3Four6 6ZeroFour9

    CALLS ONLY...Sorry we DO NOT communicate through texting and if no answer, please leave a message and we will call you back asap ) "

    Wait, a Late 60's Early 70's table top pin? That's got to narrow it down.

I still remember his $15k ToM, which I am positive he sold for around $12k to somebody, and it was not HUO as stated. Some people say I am a little caustic, but some things he sells are not realistic, no matter his experience in the industry.

    While many of the pictures on the eBay auction aren't necessarily bad, they seem more towards promoting his business than the machine he's auctioning off. And for that price I can do without the rainbow puke lighting.

    #3185 3 years ago
    Quoted from chucktee:

    Agree with this assessment. If it was worth the effort they would have restored it themselves. Kiss is one of the few games that would be worth at least trying to polish up no matter how big a turd it is because there will most likely be someone willing to buy it but this example no way José-part this puppy out and get what you can for it. Personally I wouldn't pay more than $200-300 at the most ( the boards, displays, wiring, & playfield parts should be worth that much) and that's being generous.

    Take another look at the backbox. Battery corrosion on the MPU, rust on the transformer assembly, something burned on the lamp driver and corrosion on all the other boards. Maybe ( and it's a stretch) some of the parts under the play field are salvageable, but even they show some rust and missing parts.

    Perfect working? I see the right flipper is working really well!

    There is a ball cradled on the flipper, pic was taken during playing a game.

    The flipper is also down in another picture.

    Williams Tri-Zone has a "new bumbler set recently installed". No, I don't know what that means either.

    "All four score counters work". Yeah, looking at you pictures at least two "Displays" have problems.

    That actually looks kind of neat, but too bad about 10% of the back-glass is covered by molding.

    Who wants to jump on Cubs band wagon for a a small fee of $6,000

    The seller could get in BIG trouble for using the cubs and World series logo's without permission.

    #4084 2 years ago
    Quoted from mhkohne:

    No, that's really the theme for the machine. Premier payed up for the license back when it was manufactured, and the trademark owners can't really demand more money from the guy who resells the thing he bought.

    I know that. i worked on one back in the day, but the pin came out LONG before the Cubs won the World Series, and the seller is trying to sell it as a "Limited Edition" using the 2016 Worlds Series logo. That's the parts that make the ad sketchy.

    Only $4500- I guess its cheaper than $6995 one on Ebay
    NO HAGGLE NO TIREKICKERS!!

    I like how he claims you can buy a messed up one off eBay, but only post the one picture showing the faded side. Wonder what the playfield looks like.

    $4500 for a Kiss with faded cabinet, no slots for the Dollar Coin, and the displays don't work? OP says it works great.

    Wait a minute, that's the same machine ArkhamB posted a different link to in post 4086
