There is going to be an Estate Sale in Dumont, NY this Saturday and Sunday which features a couple items of interest.

First off, I don't even think I can afford to walk into this house to shop during the sale, this is well above my pay grade. I mean, what a house, its like out of a TV show or something. Its always strange to see estate sale photos from houses that still have clutter in the desks and end tables, I cannot help but wonder what happened to the family.

Anyways, there is a pinball machines (Simpsons Pinball Party), a Williams pitch and hit machine along with a pool table, Ping-Pong table and arcade machine.

with an estate sale it's a complete crapshoot about whether it's priced at $3k or $10k, though

Here's the story you're going to get with an estate sale:

First, the machine will be priced ridiculously high.

Second, the machine will be "on", but only the GI lamps will be working, because 99% likely the batteries will have crapped out all over the MPU long ago. If anything shows up in the displays at all, it will be something similar to the Sys11 "ADJUST FAILURE".

Then you're going to find someone working at the sale and ask them if they know where the keys are. Most likely not, but if by some miracle they have them, you'll open up the backbox and find that corrosion-damaged board. You'll then explain to them how the game is not in working condition, and why.

And then, and this is the part that makes me want to smack every single one of these estate sale people upside the head, they will tell you, with a perfectly straight face, that they were "just playing the game yesterday". I swear to god, they must memorize that line from a script, and think we're all idiots and we're going to believe it. Doesn't matter what's wrong with the machine and what condition it's in, they were always "just playing it yesterday". The fossil who had the gall to tell me this weekend that an LW3 was "just working last night", with no controlled lamps and a non-functioning DMD, then proceeded to try to get it to work by pushing on the lockdown bar and the coindoor frame, so obviously she had no clue how to start a game even if it WAS working.

I have to stop myself from laughing out loud at these people because every time, without fail, on cue, the games were always "just working yesterday".

The biggest bullshit artist estate guy I ever talked to was selling a Surf N Safari with some kind of boot up error. I was mildly interested in the game, at maybe $900 after playing it at Pinburgh. The guy wanted $4000 blah blah...I don't begrudge him. It's how he makes his living. I figured the game would never move and eventually he'd come down to Earth.

But his bullshit went far beyond the usual "I was playing it yesterday." You see, this guy is close personal friends with David Gottlieb (or some other member of the Gottlieb clan I don't remember), who just told him on the phone how popular/sought after and rare this game is worth etc. etc. I really was speechless. His presented scenario begged so many questions I just wouldn't have known where to start.

He kept emailing me eventually offering it up at $1000 if I'd "come tomorrow" but by then I'd totally lost interest.

I spoke with that same guy, you forgot about the part that there was not power in the house to plug it in. I don’t know what he got for it but the last offer he gave me was 600.00

I will list a Capcom BBB soon for sale or trade. The deal should be very interesting for the right trade.

#10264 1 year ago

I usually don't bother with estate sales.

1) The prices are usually high, and they won't tell you ahead of time what the price will be.
2) There's usually a fair amount of local competition, so there's no guarantee that I will actually end up with the game.
3) Estate sales with pins usually happen 2-3 hours away from me, so because of reason 1 & 2, it's not really worth my time.

Anyone local have the joker poker playfield wireform that goes just above the right flipper? It measures 4-1/2” with a slight bend in it. Not sure if other games share the same size.
Thx. Mike

Mike, I stripped a JP playfield last summer. The guts are still sitting in my garage in a box. I will try to take a look after I get caught up cleaning all the white crap.

I'm friends with Mike on FB and thought I'd call him out and post to his timeline "OMG Mike, I heard you were losing the lease! Where are you moving????" but he's treated me well personally so I let it slide. Lame ad tho.

He did lose the lease on ONE of his warehouses. Storage area.

I heard from someone that there are no pins in that particular warehouse though. Only arcade and redemption machines. The CL ad appears to be all about pins though. I was hopeful for a little while anyway.

Craigslist alerts???

execute a search and then in the upper right you can save search, once you save on the left you can check the alert box. You must have a CL account to do this.
