    Quoted from The_Director:

    This one is great: charlotte.craigslist.org link
    Some go for $6-24,000!

    We get some ridiculous craigslist ads here but this might be the greatest ad I have ever seen. I usually laugh pretty hard at just at the run of the mill Ddemolition Derby Collectors Item RARE!!!!!!!!!! pinball machine for $500 but this takes the cake.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    Reads like an unfunny racist joke to me. Some white idiot pinball person trying to sound black.

    Honestly, does anyone seriously talk like that? One of the best ads ever.

    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    how about a 5k Evel Knievel...
    " target="_blank">inlandempire.craigslist.org link
    Don't miss out on this One of a Kind!
    A 1975 Evel Knievel Pinball Machine signed by the One and Only Evel Knievel. The machine is great working condition and had a full service done by a qualified technician. There is some normal ware associated with a machine of this year. The playing field is not perfect but stills looks good. The back glass was signed by Mr. Evel Knievel at the 1998 L.A. Boat show and I have a picture to prove it. You will never find another pinball machine like this ever. This is truly a One of a Kind.
    If you have any questions, please text me or call me. Buyer must make all shipping arrangements

    What the crap is the deal with the irrational value of Evel anyways. I know where one is that is a beater project. The guy that has it sold me a BK2K for $500 but I could tell he wanted over 1K for Evel. I just bought the Black Knight and left it at that.

    #663 4 years ago
    Quoted from wayout440:

    So would love to find this.

    If you remember correctly I posted pics on a thread here as to what to offer the guy for it and possibly several other machines and everyone said they were $200 machines tops. I sure am glad I went ahead and kicked in some extra cash.

    IMG_0654.JPG

    I am in it just under $1K right now. Ironically, I found this machine through craigslist. lol

    #668 4 years ago
    Quoted from indypinhead:

    Gotta add this one to the list:
    chicago.craigslist.org link

    I just turned down a trade of one for my Hurricane (mostly because I am a Cubs fan). I would in turn cut my Hurricane loose for that.

    Just in time for Christmas!
    " target="_blank">raleigh.craigslist.org link
    "Just in time for a family Christmas present! We are selling one of the most popular Pinball machines ever made. The Demolition Man game features many ramps, multi-balls, and challenging gameplay. Only 7,000 were made making this a likely collectors item in the future.
    This machine is professionally cleaned and serviced annually. All lights and special effects work.
    The specs and history of the machine can be found here: http://www.ipdb.org/search.pl?any=demolition&search=Search+Database&searchtype=quick#662
    The same machine is on sale on EBAY right now for $4995.00 :
    ebay.com link » Demolition Man Pinball Machine Williams 1994 Get Ready For A Blast

    I like to buy all of my ridiculously over priced Christmas presents at least 10 months in advance. I mean, with there only being 7000 of them and with America's rate of inflation this will clearly be 10K by Christmas.

    #675 4 years ago

    chattanooga.craigslist.org link

    This CFTBL has been firm at $3800 for a very very very long time.

    #682 4 years ago
    Quoted from dkazz1:

    at first glance that doesn't look too bad. Isn't that price quite near the going rate for this game? Or is 3K more like it?

    It is a nice looking game but I would imagine that the 6 months stay on CL at $3800 means it's over priced. It's not advertised as a restored collectors quality piece so I am guessing $2800 to $3K. There was a nicer looking one listed close to me for $3K that sold in about 2 weeks.

    #685 4 years ago

    I'm not in Wisconsin so I haven't been looking lol. That being said everything is cheaper this way because there are less people attempting to buy it but Chattanooga is in between Nashville and Atlanta so the market shouldn't be a problem for a sale on that machine.

    Hahahahaha. Preach on!!
    cincinnati.craigslist.org link

    I replied to his ad and told him to look up this thread on pinside lol. He is probably already among us.

    laughing makes ridiculous prices a whole lot easier to handle.

    I knew these were gaining value. What a steal this one is

    #711 4 years ago
    Quoted from Olddragon:

    I saw this yesterday. It's only about 20 minutes from my house. I am tempted to check it out just to ask they seller how he came up with $3500 as a sales price.

    Idk I could be way off on this but that Earthshaker looks pretty wore out. $1500-1600 tops from me. That's if it is fully functional of course.

    #715 4 years ago
    Quoted from Pinbali:

    Don't do it...you'll get shot!

    Yeah, IDk, maybe you should ask that over the phone before checking it out. lol.. Record the phone call and put it in a YouTube video so we can all hear.

    #717 4 years ago
    Quoted from KillerDragon:

    Bat Cats??
    portland.craigslist.org link

    Bad cats is climbing through the roof. I bet that's not out of the realm of possibility. There was one for sale locally that was similar minus the LEDs for $1400.

    I guess it really depends on whether it is in fully working players condition. Lol. I only like games that are fully working players condition.

    #719 4 years ago

    Lol. I didnt even catch that. Here is southeastern ky typos and improper grammar are common place. I mean we did just recently get shoes and phones lol.

    #760 4 years ago

    Of course there are no pics but it is a collectors item after all.

    #764 4 years ago
    Quoted from KillerDragon:

    This is just funny. Its not pinball.
    ebay.com link
    This started out around $300 when I first saw it back in November. It hasn't sold. So the next time I look at ebay the price went up to around $600. Now its close to $3000. I guess the seller thinks. "Hmmm... its not selling. Must raise price then it will sell."

    I had a pretty nice red tent once with mario and the goonies. I sold it for $400.

    #766 4 years ago
    Quoted from vdojaq:

    I actually just threw an offer at this one....here is the reply:
    Hi Jack,
    Thank you for the offer but I have a sale pending as of today for my asking price of 3k.
    Nicole
    Um, yeah, sure. ASKING $3K and they offered the full $3K ?!?

    She is shippig it to Nigeria. She just has to give the buyer her bank account information and social security number so that he can make sure the transfer goes through. He will then send his man to collect the machine.

    #769 4 years ago
    Quoted from KillerDragon:

    Wish I could have bought that from you. Been wanting one. heh

    Yeah they are pretty cool little machines. I wouldn't mind to have it back actually. I see quite a few of the player choice ones but not that many red tents.

    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    I believe he said he would be sending his "agent"...

    You are absolutely correct. It was his agent.

    #779 4 years ago
    Quoted from anubis2night:

    I've seen at least 8 ads for the Marilyn version since thanksgiving time. They don't seem that "rare"

    It seems like about an even split to me honestly. I don't know if it is because people who have the Marilyn version are trying to cash in on the "Uber" rarity of the game or what. But you do see way too many of them to be rare

    #795 4 years ago
    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    This guy is caving on his price fast if someone wants to look into it further. Just offered it to me for $1,200. I am not in the market, but if it works and is in decent shape, might be worth a shot to get it for under $1,000.

    I was going to buy one in that area for $400 a while back. I was headed that way the next day to get a whirlwind and I was going to pick them both up. The guy sold it out from under me. I wonder if it is the same one. I'd like to put one next the BK2K though.

    #797 4 years ago

    I emailed him to see what he says. Thanks.

    #798 4 years ago

    I just got the classic "I currently have an offer of $1500 but I told him I would get back to you" response. Lol

    #812 4 years ago
    Quoted from pins4life:

    Looks like the buyer came through. Good for them!
    detroit.craigslist.org link

    Whats funny is that I got mentioned in the ad. I never even mentioned that game on this thread. Kiss sells for crazy amounts all day long, just like Evel. So since he was misrepresenting the fact that I was not involved in making fun of his price I had to flag his ad for removal.

    #836 4 years ago
    Quoted from bob_e:

    sold it to his mom I guess

    Whoa whoa whoa. Don't be making fun of the guy. He will post your pinside ID on Craigslist.

    Quoted from Jean-Luc-Picard:

    I think his balls had hunks of metal sticking out of it... But lets not forget, this is a HUO since 1990 playfield... lol

    In the family could mean it was in the family owned bar.

    #904 4 years ago
    Quoted from chuckwurt:

    Or a slaughter house.

    In case any of you guys are wondering that machine is in fully working players condition and will easily command the full asking price

    Street Fighter II pinball - $2727
    "Don't like the price? So be it. Make me an offer. Be aware this is a restored, working pin, not a salvage project, so scrap-level Pinside offers will be ignored and deleted. No reasonable number will be refused. Cash only."
    Ok guys, no more 'scrap-level Pinside offers', k?

    That's a pretty nice professional resto. Lol

    #1134 4 years ago

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    Not all collectors are picky. I'll pick up just about anything if the price is right.

    I hear that. Half the fun is bringing one back to life too. There is no location pinball within an hour and a half from me so I will buy any game of the price is right. Fix it, clean it, play it, and if I don't like it or get tired of it sell it. I am a very nonpicky collector.

    #1603 3 years ago
    Quoted from markp99:

    This $50 Xenon has me intrigued. Seems the parts alone would be worth that...
    nh.craigslist.org link

    I get a Craigslist update about 10 minutes from the time an ad posts. I would have bought that xenon instantly. As long as the vocal and sound boards are salvageable it would be a very nice game

    #1606 3 years ago
    Quoted from dasvis:

    Really, any pin $100 or under is a no brainer - at least in my area.
    Even if it's not salvageable, you WILL need the parts at some time in the future.

    I picked up a bunch of blown out playfields for light sockets and posts once. That stuff always comes in handy.

    #1608 3 years ago
    Quoted from wantdataeast:

    I bet that Xenon lasted for about 5 minutes. He probably got contacts 40 times, then raised the price to $400

    I know. That kills me. I bought a riverboat gambler in lexington last week. I gave the guy $20 extra for holding it all day since I was the first caller.

    #1613 3 years ago
    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    The skeeball machine looks like a$$ with the "cow pasture" look about it.
    Who are all those collectors that want to being "this one back from the dead", and make it look good too?
    Point made again. Garbage like this in homes/shops/garages means you are pinball hoarder and have issues, not a collector.

    Lol. For starters that is not a pinball machine. Secondly I wouldn't pay that for a working skee ball machine.

    Some machines cannot be brought back while maintaining value from a financial stand point. We all know that.

    Here is my $200 riverboat gambler that was non working though

    "Open to trade for heavy equipment, or fast sports car."

    They actually started this pin out higher. I'm thinking it was $2900. I was going to post it but never got around to it. I'm glad someone did. Lol.

    Looks nice but $4500 for Baywatch might be a stretch

    #1902 3 years ago
    Quoted from wayout440:

    No you wouldn't, because I'd pay $400 all day.

    Good call. I probably would too.

    Here is a good one. Maybe a bit high on the price.

    bgky.craigslist.org link

    8k is too high for a STTNG.

    Yes by about double. I should have used the sarcasm symbol. Lol.

    #1931 3 years ago
    Quoted from Slim64:

    After almost every party I host my getaway has a credit dot.......why?
    Almost no one is able to run the red so the third switch in the lock is never used and sets the dot.
    Not saying his issue is that, but the dot isn't a sure thing that something is broken.

    Regardless of the credit dot, the clear coat, the new plastics, etc... Getaway is at best $2500. And probably more like $2000. I sold a beautiful one, albeit with cabinet fade for $1800.

    #1934 3 years ago
    Quoted from Slim64:

    Around here they aren't that cheap

    They made an awful lot of them. It's fun but not that fun. I just sold a white water for less than $3800. Its quite a bit better than getaway

    #1974 3 years ago
    Quoted from ZZZ_spy_hunter:

    I'll solve the price mystery. This guy is obviously a Micheal Jordan fanatic so he added 23 to the price since that's Jordan's number.

    As is 45

    #2017 3 years ago
    Quoted from Jodester:

    monroe.craigslist.org link
    Somebody will get an AC/Dc for $1366. Odd price...maybe he forgot a zero somewhere.

    It's a scam. It was posted about 10 times in my four hour radius CL search. Each time a different random price. Lol

    #2035 3 years ago
    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    Not unreasonable if in superb condition. This particular machine has a number of hard to find game specific parts including the plastic ramps, and some of the "toys". Low production reduces the percentage to find one in this type of condition.

    If you can find a diamond plated one it is even rarer. Even those aren't guaranteed to be nice. I have a dp riverboat gambler but all of the inserts have peeled off. Not worn off but I guess the paint didn't stick.

    #2038 3 years ago
    Quoted from wayout440:

    Fattdirks sat for a little while at $1400 before he sold it, and it was very nice.

    It is one of those games I wouldn't have even looked twice at before playing I actually played it. I always figured fair price was $14-1500 in decent shape with a nice DP model going closer to $17-1800. But I am also in a pinball wasteland with a limited market

    #2063 3 years ago

    Quoted from Dan63:

    First I want to Thank all of you. I feel more comfortable knowing that you guys at least know something and won't steer me in the wrong direction. Unfortunately the best I can do is respond to threads and not start them? I guess buying a pinball machine also requires a great deal of patience and not to buy the first one you see if the price isn't justifiable for the condition and popularity of the machine. I never worked on pinball machines, but would love to know how to at least do some basic repairs and troubleshooting. Are there any good sources? I know this site would be one source perhaps Internet postings? Are there a lot of special types of tools required?
    Thanks in advance and sorry for posting here, but I can't start a thread
    Dan

    As far as pin repair sites I like pinwiki.com tons of info on there. Lots of helpful people of this site as well. I have learned a ton from some of these guys.

    Quoted from dirtbag66:

    No pics is always fishy.
    If it actually exists, there is no way it sells for $2k.

    It's not a pin but Lethal Enforcers for $3500. HUO and only 30 hours. Is it worth that much? I routinely see them for a couple hundred bucks.

    I gave a fully working one to a friend once for helping me move some pins. I should have held out for more lol

    #2303 3 years ago
    Quoted from dirtbag66:

    And he would tell you to GTFO. Pretty simple, actually.

    I was going to respond something similar but chose not to lol. If he didn't take $1200 I'm not quite sure why he would take $800. A lot of time I find it best to tell unrealistic sellers that we are just too far apart. I offer nice words and some advice and bid them farewell. Half of the time they call back and offer the game for a lot less after it doesn't sell. However, if you guys find the "hey d-bag, you have your garbage way over priced. Sell it to me for peanuts!!" Method to be better then so be it I guess. Lol

    #2306 3 years ago
    Quoted from mbaumle:

    I started this route. He was actually a really really nice guy. We chatted about the game, how much he and his kids love it, and how much we as enthusiasts respect and love it, and I had a very nice conversation telling him that this game isn't worth as much as he thought it was. He told me that he was trying to scare off the lowballers (understandable), and that he was willing to negotiate. I tried to explain to him the process of a restoration, and how much work it'll take to bring this game up to even an average players game, and he seemed totally cool. I offered what I thought was a more than fair deal, and he broke down and refused. He said he had other buyers lined up to pay "much more" than that. I bid him a very pleasant farewell, and I left. I was more mad that I had to drive 1.5 hours on the traffic laden NJ Turnpike to get to the guys place than anything else.
    My takeaway, it was negotiation practice for me.

    See. That's a reasonable response. He wants more than you were willing to give. No big deal. There will be more pins for sale lol. That's not like saying here's X amount, take it or leave it, your game is junk lol.

    I also hate the Pawn Stars, lets point out all the flaws and tell you how bad your stuff is approach. It's ok to point out some of the problems but in the end I'll price it for whatever I want. If I don't sell oh well. People who are overly critical I quit dealing with quickly.

    No he just really wants to trade and says he would sell it for a reasonable price. Its a gorgeous SS for sure, looks brand new. Arcade games are getting out of control too. Supply is running low on all of these retro machines.

    Go to an auction. Arcade games go for nothing at those things. Pins bring crazy cash wherever.

    The CL ad was flagged & taken down very quickly so I didn't get a chance to link/copy it, but on Friday some dude in NYC listed an NBA Fastbreak for free to whoever texted him the best haiku poem.

    Friday was April fools day after all. I saw two ads for free de Star Wars machines to the first to show up. Lol.

    I wouldn't turn one down for $800. Working wpc board sets make up most of that cost

    You both got the balls to post but not reply? This was before fwiw.

    I have no dog in this fight obviously but I believe both parties are in the right. Obviously if you have played KISS you know it is not a $6000 game however, being that it is restored I would imagine there is some KISS junky out there with enough money to do whatever he or she wants and it will sell. So in my nonbiased opinion yes it is priced too high and yes it will probably sell for that or close to asking. I have a close friend who has sent rough ones over seas for $3-4000.

    Tried a search for "pinball" keyword as normal, and sometimes some unrelated ads pop up but this is ridiculous. Somebody tagged their car sales ads with a 300 page keyword text so now all I get is pages of car ads.

    About once a week I have to turn my phone off at night because of the d bag. I got about 150 emails last night. It's just part of the game I guess. Annoying as crap though. I wonder how many people actually believe he is really selling a 71 mustang in restored condition for $2900. Lol. One born every day right.

    Not a big deal there are millions of pins in the sea plenty more offers to make lol

    You are very sensitive. I didn't realize anyone said anything out of line to you. If you are going to react like this when someone calls you out maybe pinside isn't the best place. This site has some very outspoken people on it. Sensitive people seem to get their feelings hurt. lol.

    Lol this is funny to me. people are assuming so many different things that happened from their computer screen..
    call me what you will. I'm not offended in any way. you people were not here.
    I didn't try to steal the deal. I came with a strong offer off the bat via email trying to solidify a sale. she told me she had someone else make an offer that was lower, told me it was hard to refuse my offer, thought about it and took the lower offer, I thought it was funny posted it, called her stupid which I guess offended some people here and you people freaked out. Attacked me and yeah I lost my cool...end of story! I'm over it and you all should be too!
    As far as pinside not the place for me you are not rite at all I love pinball and I've done nothing wrong so I will stay in this public forum reading and posting what I want you don't have to read what I post which hasn't been much at all. mostly showing off my pins and asking for tech help witch is the tits when people are being all Cool..... Have a good day folks I know I will.... Crying on the beach all day lol

    I'm going to go with your usage of "stoled" as the reason you were downvoted...

    Lol. You sir are probably correct. Would the proper usage in this instance be "stol'd" or is it just "stold".

    Quoted from Jrwill13lv:

    My first down vote. Oh Yeah!! Lol I am a bit confused tho. Is $6800 the new Star Trek asking price. I understand a lot went into it but most of these pins have a lot go into them and you will never see it again. Maybe it was a pinsiders? Again am I off in thinking this is too much because I got mine for $3000 and I thought it was fair for the work needed which wasn't much.

    I agree. STTNG is a cool game. A cool $4000 game. There it was. I said it. Lol. Maybe I will get down voted too.

    #2897 3 years ago
    Quoted from Geocab:

    I would say, "stolen". Maybe "stole" would work also? I'm not an English expert, but I don't think any variation with a "d" in it is a word and being it was used in the past tense, it should be "stolen".

    Well.... I guess I needed to use the sarcasm flag.

    #2898 3 years ago

    Is there anyway we can bend this back to gathering pitchforks and torches and going after the guy who keeps trying to scam me with his $2000 mustang, RVs, motorcycles, and tractors. Lol. I'm really about tired of all the emails.

    They are a little hard to find and seem to have gone up a tad because of that but I just bought two recently in project state for around $800 each. Piggy back board replacements from NVRAM.weebly and a bunch of newly pinned connectors and they are both up and running

    Letgo and OfferUp are pretty bad, and just seem hit or miss. Sometimes I don't get any response at all even when I simply ask if the game is still available. Then again, I have gotten some really good deals off of both.
    I have a pretty nice Road Kings I've offered up on here for 700 bucks, and still have it. A few small issues and some minor wear on the PF, but it also has a brand new legs and Pinscore displays. I even said I would go 675 at another Pinsider wanted it. Surprised. Not sure I even want to list it anywhere else, let alone in those two apps.

    This might get people confused too......My sound Roms are marked "P-1".....No clue what it means, but someone could take that as a Proto sticker too...

    Lots of early games run proto ROMs. Especially system 11. I have had pinbot, rollergames, riverboat gambler all running proto ROMs. They were just early run games. I had a sample earthshaker with proto ROMs but just a sample not a proto. My whirlwind has proto ROMs and even has some red boards but it is not a prototype. Just early run

    Quoted from Biffbar:

    ebay.com link » Huo Home Use Only Gottlieb Em Pinball Machine Top Score
    Could be a case of must be "HUO" because it is so clean. It is common to see a late model EM with a "low mileage" playfield. They were retired early when SS games came along. Strange that a home owner would put a pricing sticker on the apron. Not so strange that an operator would remove coin mechs before selling a game to the public.

    Man I sure gave my 300 away then lol. I sold it to friend for $550 and everyone was super happy with the deal. To think... I could have gotten $3k. Oh well. Live and learn I guess

    #5167 1 year ago
    Quoted from egyptrus:

    That's mine and your sentiment above is exactly why I don't have it listed on pinside...it seems that pinsiders don't care about or know about woodrail pinball machines.
    There isn't a lot of reliable pricing information so I asked around the woodrail community and also used information from Bostonpinbball.biz, etc. I think it's priced fairly (with the exception of the price on Ebay, I use Ebay for advertising for the most part).
    As always, the market will let me know if I've overpriced it but based on the initial interest I've gotten, I think I'm in the ball park.
    Dave

    I understand exactly where you are coming from. Things that are old and rare have a very small market however the collectors in that market are willing to pay big money for rare items that fit their collections. It has taken me years of collecting a variety of different things to understand that. New pinball machines have a very wide market and are easy to deal in. Pricing points are readily available and it makes it so much easier to judge on over pricing.

    As for me... I typically don’t touch EM machines, wood rail or not, unless they are basically given to me. I just personally don’t like the game play. I would never spend money on a flipperless game because to me the lack of flippers kills the fun. Even if I were getting a good deal I know so little of that market that I would be afraid of loosing on a game I don’t personally like to play. However... I totally get that some of them are worth a ton of money. I doubt he meant any harm in his statement. Just a simple misunderstanding of market

    #5192 1 year ago
    Quoted from Colsond3:

    Hahaha...I thought about that, but didn't go there. Glad someone else did. I had a more inconspic in mind like "what a nifty touch up".

    Around here everyone seems to be able to pick up the same day. The people who start those auctions turn them around and sell at retail basically. I hate to use the dreaded “flipper” word lol. I typically tell the seller to just let the other guy have it. It’s just all part of the game

    -Steve

    I’ve actually had this work in my favor. At that point the table is turned and the price goes down. It seems to happen more when dealing with nonpinball people. They start hearing and seeing crazy retail prices and get big ideas that they are sitting on a gold mine. Then in the end they realize what they have is a piece of crap lol.

    Quoted from Black_Knight:

    You guys are ridiculous. The guy can't speak english too well, so what. Does that make him a scumbag or a jerk? No.
    If he buys and sells storage units, he is in this to make money, not to be a charity. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I know plenty of people who are charitable but never mix it with their business operations.
    Pinside lists the machine at $2,700, would you sell it for $1,000 if you had it? I wouldn't, and I don't believe you really would either. The guy isn't into donating pinball machines to hospitals, so what.
    The guy is probably on his storage forum complaining that a pinball jerk is lowballing him on it.

    I’m just going to be completely honest here. SMB is not a $2700 game. SMB is only valuable to non pinball people. It is an absolutely awful game. And yes I owned one for years so I feel comfortable saying it. That being said, I get that the machine was made for a purpose but from a pinball collectible position that game is in horrible condition. It needs a complete new cabinet. It is damaged. It’s not working. Are you sure it’s worth $1000? Lol. I’m not certain I’d give that for it and I buy just about anything lol

    #5367 1 year ago
    Quoted from Scribbles:

    I agree, I guess what rubs me the wrong way about people like that is the fact that they're selling an item, but refuse to put a price on it. They expect people to put in bids on it and then wait indefinitely for the seller to see if he can squeeze someone for a few extra bucks. Put a price on it and get sold I say. Especially if you're a flipper like someone mentioned earlier.

    That’s where the laugh came in. The guy is asking $2495 for it. It’s a crappy game when fully working and nice. A good game for kids so I get what colsond3 wanted it for. But $2495 is a laugh so in this thread he was rightfully made fun of. He is going to have it for a long long time I’d say
