    Absolutely. If you have to ship a game there is no better way to do so than to pack it in a pinball box and strap it to a pallet. Other than building a crate of course which most people are not willing to do.

    $10,000 by Easter.

    Too bad it is pickup only then.

    He is just looking to sell his garbage. He should give them away.

    We all aspired to be homeless people when we were kids until the box our parents gave us to play in got rained on.

    Quoted from rs812:

    The Game Doc locally used to sell new pinball boxes that they had made for $50 so I'd say yeah. It's worth it. If I was buying a game that had to be shipped I'd pay an extra $40 If necessary for a box rather than take my chances with a few blankets and stretch wrap. Now if the seller already had the box in his possession he should throw it in for free. That's what I do when I sell a game. It's a perk from buying a game from me. Free box, no charge.

    #18 5 years ago

    The homeless from "This Old Box" on SNL could build a Condo complex with them. All they need are eight jars (with lids) for the toilets.

    In all seriousness, those have fetched $50 apiece on fleabay in the past.

    Quoted from fiberdude120:

    Agree, if anyone in Cleveland needs a box, PM me and come get one for free

    #20 5 years ago
    Quoted from vex:

    how much for the pallet? 100$

    Do you think this stuff is free?

    Stern charges $50 for a pallet that they probably buy for $25. That is what they told me when I picked up my STLE last month. Cardboard is also expensive. I buy boxes for our company. I would guess that Stern pays at least $10 to $15 per box including packing materials.

    #21 5 years ago

    If I was in a situation where I needed to ship a pin, I would be more than happy to pay an extra $40 to make sure it was safe and secure. It's not something you would want to stock up on, but it would be nice if you needed one right then and there.

    #22 5 years ago

    I wonder how much my JJP one is worth?

    hmmmmm

    #23 5 years ago

    yeah i pay my daughters boyfriend 10$ for destroying the boxes and putting in the recycling bin.

    And ClassicPinball will pay their shipping guy $10 to talk to you when you arrive to pick up your Stern box.

    Quoted from roc-noc:

    Just knowing what I pay for the little dinky boxes I ship my translites in I wouldn't be surprised if it was more than that.

    That is correct. That is all figured in on the cost of a new machine when you buy it.

    Why won't they ship?

    Both the above are true.

    Funny enough, one of the things salesmen for Rolex tell you is you can sell the box or the certificate or even the little thing you set the watch on for $$$. I guess pinball is going that way too . . . heck, the prices are almost the exact same.

    #31 5 years ago

    Yes they are. Sold a pin to buy a Rolex. Getting lured back to the watch world : o

    The TAG watch case suede "pillows" are worth a few bucks as well. The fake watches don't come with a pillow. I guess the fraudsters haven't perfected knock-off pillows yet.

    i'm looking at getting a rolex as well. which model did you get? i'm looking at the ceramic hulk sub myself. also thinking of getting the batman but will have to decide soon which one to commit to.

    One of the boxes in my garage says LE, that should be worth at least $60.

    Whatever dude. Still seems like a snake move for this guy to try and sell these things, especially when they are "pick up only". Does he really think there are 8 pinsiders near him that are seeking empty boxes for shipping. Doubt it. I just know that if a pinsider or pin lover near me needed a box, they would get it for nothing.

    Bought four pins myself this year, two NIB. This is very bad advertising in my opinion. Would be the last place I would call for a quote on a pin based on trying to hawk used cardboard on pinside. Bet Game Doc didn't try and do that move.

    JJP box is clearcoated!

    I think I might have the LE that was originally in that box . Raise it to $100 and we'll meet up for some beers!

    If you offer a payment plan, you can name your price. Just remember to start with "$XX due NOW".

    Yes you do. But since it's an XMen LE box, it's probably only worth $30 now.

    Pinside is on fire!

    Don't forget to make payments up front for your second box before you have your first one delivered.

    maybe he has so many boxes because the customers didn't want to pay extra for the boxes when they bought nib

    #48 5 years ago

    I just really thought that Gary´s now releasing the boxes first , then , after some month, the pinball will be shipped seperately and after another year the code will follow .. eventually

    #49 5 years ago

    I have a JJP invisibox somewhere but I cant find it.

    #50 5 years ago

    Fill them with 300lbs of crap and sell them as NIB machines on eBay......then skip the country
