    Tommy, 1994 Data East: 3800
    Probably one of the nicest tommy pinball machines left in the world. Cabinet and playfield look amazing. Cliffy protectors and led lighting installed. Has silverball topper and the game works 100% including the blinders.

    My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family.

    #163 7 years ago

    Like all of those who have already posted, I was saddened to learn of your loss. I hope your faith and the memories of the good times will comfort and see you through the tough days ahead. Let me/us know if we can help in any way.

    #164 7 years ago

    RIP Tommy. Always remember your dad loved you.
    Very sorry for your loss.

    #165 7 years ago

    I am about to start a thread to see if we can raise the money Don will need to buy that memorial Tommy machine. It will take me a few minutes to type something up, and I will post the URL here when it is ready.

    #166 7 years ago

    Here is the URL with information about donating to help Don buy a Tommy:

    Please give generously and, if possible, sooner rather than later. I don't have unlimited time to spend responding to emails, etc., but I have blocked out the next day or so for this purpose.

    Thanks in advance!

    My condolences to you and your family.

    maybe we can get that nice one on hold and see how we do with the donations??

    Quoted from yoshootme:

    I'll phone them and ask, although it seems unlikely that they'd hold it if someone else shows up with cash. On the other hand, $3,800 is a high price for a Tommy, so it might take a while to sell. I will be in touch.

    If we could get the cash together quickly, perhaps it would be possible to buy the pin outright on Don's behalf and have it shipped. Let's see how this develops. So far, the response to my request has been very slow. I have higher hopes for this evening.

    #170 7 years ago

    Sorry to hear of your loss Prayers to you and your family.

    #171 7 years ago

    Some good news: the guy with the high-quality Tommy in CA is a Pinsider, and he has agreed to sell the machine at a very significant discount and ship it direct to Don, assuming that we can raise the money. So, come on folks. Let's make this happen!

    #172 7 years ago

    so sorry to hear of your loss,

    a tommy pin will be a great tribute

    #173 7 years ago

    #174 7 years ago
