After almost 4 years of collecting data, 3 servers, some very expensive software, lots of cursing, and a lot of hard scripting and html work, we are pleased to announce the official release of PinballPrice.com
This site is free to use and includes a very large database of actual pinball sales records. This site does not attempt to set prices like some others try and do, this site just shows you the facts and allows you to see for yourself how much games are trading for in the industry. This includes onsite game auctions as well as ebay sales.
You can submit sales records to add to the database of games you sell, but we will take steps to verify accuracy as best we can before it will be included. This site was a tremendous amount of work and also a great amount of money to develop including labor, software and server costs. The site is planned to someday include a classified section in the future but we may have to move to a larger dedicated server prior to that release.
I hope you like the site and hopefully you will no longer need to request a “price check” to get an idea what your game is worth.
Surely some haters will not like this site, but remember this site is not trying to influence or determine pinball prices like some other books and sites try to do. This is about educating others about what games really sell for, and not speculation based on the opinion of one or a few.
Be sure to read the “how to use this site” section, as you can sort based on price, location, sale date, and more. The results also indicate the high, low and average pricing of the records in the database. You can search by game name or IPD#, but spelling is important. Also look at the small photo displayed in the results to verify you are looking at the correct game. Also included is a links section, events section, and info on upcoming auctions. A page also explains some factors that can attribute to a machines worth.
Please “like” our page on Facebook to follow site updates, and help us spread the word by telling your friends. If you have input or suggestions you can email us from the site directly so you don’t have to communicate here. Hopefully you will find this site useful and help the cause by contributing actual data. As we get to know you better and see who we can trust to submit accurate data, then your inclusions will be expedited. For now we will use caution to try and keep this as accurate as possible for you to enjoy.
