Quoted from arcademojo:

I paid $1800 for my Bad Cats needing nothing. With nice playfield. bought it off EBay of all places last year.

She wanted $1900 for a Stellar Wars.

There was no deals there, I saw lots of stuff going for 2x-3x the going rate and she was not haggling. I wished her good fortune and beat it out the door.

Players Dredd for $1,800 firm.
boston.craigslist.org link

Played it at AR2, one of those titles I really wanted to like but could not take a shine to it. Might have been the location, too much noise with too many people milling around makes it hard to focus.

I mean... Its Dredd!

#8416 2 years ago
Quoted from BeaglePuss:

Um, no. That's the "I have to deal with Craigslist knuckleheads price." You guys are a cool, so it's $1,800 for the Pinside crew.

I do the same, knock off $100-$200 and buyers are thrilled and happy.

Montville, CT

I'm working on a road trip October 1st to pick up a pin east of Baltimore and drop off a pin at the same time. I have these three pins I can bring along at the same time for a killer price as I need to free up space.

Please PM if interested. Gary

Spirit of '76 $500

Heavy repairs to cabinet back and bottom (done right, see posting!) graphics repainted, cool 70's graffiti, backglass touched up and sealed, boards serviced and adjusted, score reels gone through, great chimes, many new play field posts from PBR, sealed back glass, missing inserts replaced. 2-3 playfield plastics have cracks from ball strikes, play as is or order new set for $75 from PBR to really dress it up. Still has working coin mechs, comes with new owners manual from PBR.


Williams Full House $500

Fully serviced and ready to go, some new coils, unique stepped cabinet design, mylar non-stick protectors installed around popper bases to protect playfield, playfield cleaned and waxed, elastics changed, bulbs replaced, contacts cleaned and adjusted, stepper assemblies cleaned and lubed, back glass touched up and sealed.

Orbit $350

Nice playing machine, all contacts and steppers gone through, fresh elastics, replacement glass and lockbar, replacement chime box, sealed back glass. Some plastics funky. Only issue only plays one player or three player game. For some reason skips over player two and four. Installed a switch to enable one player game only. No time to look at it further, comes with new schematic from PBR.

Quoted from Colsond3:

I drove to CT, RI, Pintastic... all over the place up there in the last year. Come down this way!! I have a Space Ship project or working Orbit also that I could throw in for a decent price.....now you're not just driving down for one project pin.

You could come up here to pick up Ship Ahoy

We are getting ready to thin the herd; Ship Ahoy, Big Star, Bus Stop, Hi Flyer and Full House up for grabs I think.

The last two might be gone this week.

This will still leave me with 4 pin projects for the winter, along with a car to assemble that has been sitting since 2012.

#9126 1 year ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Cleaning out some space. GTB Olympics project - actually will fire up and play a game, but needs some love. I don't want to put it in storage, so if somebody can come and get it by 5 today or sometime early tomorrow - FREE.

Half tempted to pop down there with a machine or two and pick that one up.

WTB: Games on my block.

No kidding! Closest to me was 20 minutes out, the majority have always been 6+ hours round trip with a few 5 hour jaunts.

Is what is is as they say.

#9281 1 year ago
Quoted from MinusWorlds:

I just did a 30hr round trip pickup.

My longest so far was 13 hours round trip with just myself driving. Dropped off three along the way and came back with one.

#9320 1 year ago

Trying to clear out some pins so I can focus on other projects, I'll never get done at this rate.

Gottlieb Ship Ahoy: $1000, Immaculate condition, needs nothing.

Bally Bus Stop: $500, plays great, new parts, decent bg, repainted in the past

Gottlieb Double Action woodrail: $450, partial project but works. Finishing up this week, with schematic.

Might consider a trade but really want to open space up.

Only titles I'd be interested in would be Sheba, Spin-a-Card/Hearts & Spades, Melody/Sing Along or perhaps Bally Trio.

Thanks for your consideration. Gary

#9448 1 year ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Ho ho ho...this thing is pretty sweet. And the issue isn't severe. I've gotten a few PMs, but nothing definite. Very surprised. The backglass alone was $300. And I forgot…it also has a newer Rottendog PSB.

I need to go through my spare parts and post an ad on Pinside, would like to get a new backglass for Olympic Hockey and have to sell stuff or find $305 in the couch cushions.

#9450 1 year ago
Quoted from RonSS:

Isn't there an Olympic Hockey on Letgo near you/us? Might be worth a look.

Seller wants $1300

#9453 1 year ago
Quoted from RonSS:

I thought it was $400 or $500 and listed well over a month.
Ugh, sorry.

Just checked, he did just drop the price to $500. It was $1300 for the longest time. Backglass is going on this title too, look at the player on the left.

I'd just assume buy the new backglass and be done with it, one of our favorite games.

Quoted from Richthofen:

Looking for a Grand Prix EM or Hot Tip (either em or ss). Willing to consider other games similar but hoping to spend $500 or less.

I have a Williams Lucky Strike, New Years day Pinside sale $450

Plays good, decent backglass, partially gone though. Been in our game room for a few months but I'm out of space and need to move other titles in.

Need room in the garage, moving along the following so I can get to other long suffering projects.

Immaculate Ship Ahoy (deal pending)
Williams 1965 Lucky Strike $400 (works fine, nice backglass, fair cabinet)
Bally Bus Stop $450 (works fine, lots of new parts, cab repaint)
Williams Heatwave $1500/BO (clearcoated pf, cab repainted and stenciled)

Located 06370

#9745 1 year ago
Quoted from Grayman_EM:

Gary, please your killing me here. You need a delivery service!

That can be arranged!

Oh, and were thinking of selling Darts too. It just doesn't get played that much.

#9750 1 year ago
Quoted from Grayman_EM:

That Heat Wave is on the high side I think Pinside says $800.00?

Last time I checked Heatwave had no estimated price and very few have immaculate clearcoated playfields, nice plastics, working coin mechs, decent backglass and repainted/stenciled cabinets.

#9753 1 year ago
Quoted from Grayman_EM:

Price estimate
We have seen this game for sale in the Pinside Market 2 times. The average asking price is $825
True yours is better and that is an average. Tea Gary?


Estimated value: Unknown

More than happy to go private if you wish, I'm not hostile to suggestions on price.

#9755 1 year ago
Quoted from sagejr:

Even with an Estimated Value of "unknown", I found it to be interesting that this game is ranked number #1 for EM on pinside. It must be a good game then.

Its a tough game with a lot going on and I think that keeps the kids and wife away from it. I play it time to time but not enough to justify the slot that could be used for a game like Sky Divers which I play more or Bazaar which is also waiting its turn in the workshop.

Lighting "Blow Your Top!" takes a lot of luck and skill and I think I have only managed to do it twice.

I should just put it in storage, but I get in one of my moods for housecleaning..

#11517 1 year ago
Quoted from Matesamo:

Just listed my Firepower 2 in the marketplace, $850 or trading for Gottlieb SS.

I did see it on the local listing, should look up on youtube some play videos to see if it is too our liking.

#11526 1 year ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

I also have a very nice Dirty Harry for trade or sale. $2,800 takes it. Ad with pics coming.

Thank you for the offer, but not a title were looking at. Might pop for a Walking Dead if one comes up local though.

I think we are going to hit the York show next month, maybe work on pre-selling a few EM's and bring them with us.

In general, since we have a Flash at our league site already, I am open to trades for something working and not a game I own or the league site has. Looking to mix things up a bit.
This would also include EMs depending on what you might have. If anyone is interested throw me some ideas. My flash basically needs it's drop targets rebuilt to finish it off.

This game just needs to work somewhat
It can be dirty - I’ll clean it and tune it up
It is for my kids local community action center youth rec program here in town
They have a few pool tables and an air hockey but I would like to donate a pinball for the local children to enjoy
Don’t care about condition as long as working mostly and Kids can play it
Message me if you may have something

I have a Big Star I can let go for $200, fully working so you don't have much to do to it.

Located 06320.

#11922 11 months ago
Quoted from bluespin:

So a casual player can buy a tspp, Spider-Man, and other high quality used titles for $4000-5000, or they can buy a nib pin for $1,000 more. The new pins have all the newest toys and features, and they probably don’t know how to work on games.


No difference than when I was shopping for a new Challenger. When the cost of ownership between used and new is a few bucks why on earth would I buy a used car? Buy a new one with no wear and a warranty and call it a day.

#13400 5 months ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

My guess is this would be a poor candidate.
DE 1987-1990 games have the absolute shittiest cabinets. One in this kind of condition would probably fall apart during the move.

Worst case I have spare pf glass and some legs.

#13409 5 months ago
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Yep, the plywood on the early Data East cabinets was an inferior grade compared to what Williams was using. It just splitters apart from handling and moving them around more. Stern was simply cost cutting way back then too.

Well for free I figured it was worth a shot. I really should not be contemplate a home brew machine but seeing some of the work people have done has inspired me a bit.

File cabinet is perfect. Brand new one installed when stripped down. Brand new shooter scoop chute installed(welds normally all shot entirely). Both those parts you can’t find. Ramps flame polished and no cracks at all cabinet has some scuffs and fade but solid. 2300$

Hot Shots has very nice cabinet with LEDs and even the 2' translite bulb has been converted to LED. While I'd prefer to sell outright open to interesting trades, looking for early Data East mostly.

Quoted from poppapin:

Nice pin, I've had 2 king pins in the past and also it's AAB PinUp!!

I see the attraction in it, just don't think it will have the longevity in our collection and it is getting crowded here.

One of those pins with "one more game and I'll get that last shot this time" feeling for sure.

I'm heading to York if someone wants to meet up if still unsold by then.

Colson is coming up in a week or two, maybe he will grab it
