    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

    Ha! No pics

    Drop whatever you're doing....now you can finally upgrade your old worn ball, this guy's got a 1 1/16" chrome plated steel pinball for only 5 bucks. Where else are you gonna find a replacement ball? I envy the guy who gets this ball first, and pity all you other suckas who will have to keep your old, pitted ball to play with. And it's 5 dollars FIRM, no lowballers!! He's got mouths to feed! As the ad states, "well worth it!"

    I stand corrected. Thank you Poppapin.
    You have to admit on first glance with the awful purple paint and neon lights in the pictures it looks like a cheesy arcade / family fun center.

    Sure, after you humiliate one repair person, someone should come over and diagnose your machine for free. Here is your free diagnosis, it doesn't work.

    Probably just a fuse!

    #3966 2 years ago
    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    Great deal!
    All 3 EM + 1 SS games just need to be dusted off after 18 years in storage.
    Pictures are up to date from June 2016.
    Comes with four legs each.
    NO scammers allowed "special edition".
    Needs no help, very experienced.

    Actually Eye of the Tiger very rare & collectible.

    #3972 2 years ago
    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    I need to clarify, because this requires additional explanation.
    This area is very subjective, mostly due to what a person actually collects in this hobby and for what reasons.
    Eye of the Tiger in above average condition is $1350, not $$$, so let us just eliminate that particularity.
    If it was extremely collectible it would 3-4X this value.
    This means that at minimum this game is supposedly $1500 in value according to the ad, but there is little reference to condition since it has been sitting for 18 years?
    Do all owners buy games for above market values that do not work?
    The answer is no.
    A few do out of reasons, I will explain below.
    Eye of the Tiger is certainly rare at approximately 950 produced over the SS version (Sinbad) which had 11K units.
    EM version is estimated at $1350, the SS version roughly $700, meaning roughly twice the value.
    The value has increased over the past 5 years.
    I do not know what people believe is "very rare" today, but most long time collectors generally do not consider games with more than 250 units rare, even if the game is over 40 years old.
    This game is the same category as many other period games that have similar production if not lower production numbers as GTB Bank Shot (730 units) of the Sure Shot version of roughly 3,800 units.
    What is VERY RARE in terms of this title is the SS version of Sinbad with a METAL CABINET which had less than 10 units.
    Most people do not even know this game had this version exists.
    Perhaps this is what was implied?
    There are multiple games produced during the 1960s and 1970s that have for example add a ball versions to avoid the conditional beliefs of gambling that have much lower production numbers including GTB, and are considered more rare, but still not more collectible.
    This is not an EM Mata Hari, or another transition SS solid game in terms of design at low volume.
    It was a production game that early production was transitioned to SS technology.
    Therefore it is only collectible to those that prefer this period of game from GTB, unless this game is a transition prototype, which is not based on the ad based on assessment of photos.
    That is the game history.
    If a person believes spending a non-negotiable $6K price (as was clearly specified), for one potentially $1350 game in unknown, non-working condition is acceptable, go for it.
    From my experience, I can tell you that person is going to lose, because 9 out 10 times, the games are incomplete, if they have been storage for over nearly 20 years, not considering condition.

    Now for the condensed version, was merely stating that Eye of the Tiger is rare & collectible, which it is. But so is the EM version of Sinbad more collectible than the SS version of Sinbad.
