I'm looking for a nicer game, than the one you described (which I'm willing to pay more for), and preferably something a little closer than So. Calif. I'm in Northern Calif 45 miles East of San Francisco.

I haven't checked in a bit, but there was a 2500 RS on CL last week.

Edit: someone bought it, and now it is 3200. There is one bad blurry pic, so you may be able to talk him down once you see it in person.

#4884 5 years ago
Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

Good catch. Ooops

I hope this post doesn't get me in trouble.
What's up with these 4 Gottlieb?
First they were all over our local Craigslist for over a month. Then I thought pintastic had them. Then they showed up at Captains auction few weeks ago, bidding stopped at $1000 each. Now on this thread for a week plus.
I so hope you sell them. I'm just confused when EM's broke the $700 mark, even fully restored. Someone indeed spent some time on them, not sure about coin doors, there not original in my opinion.
It's just lately pinsider trading has had some other EMs in the 3k plus range. Now these 5, I ignore overpriced pins on eBay and there are plenty of overpriced EM's there to.
I always see EM's in the $300-$700 in the greater San Diego to LA Craig's listings. Few today.
Value vs restored are not the same thing.
Once again don't want to be price police, not my thing, to each his own. But for $6800, I mean $8500, this seems like a horrible deal.

First of all there are five machines, not four.
Second, I am the only one that has had them for sale locally. These came from a restorer out of state.
I did send them to the auction where there was no action on them.
Sure you can buy unrestored EM's for $700.00. These all have restored cabinets, chrome trim. new back glasses and have been totally gone through and work 100%. If they are not for you that is fine. For someone that is into these they are a very good deal.
Fabulous Fantasies has been selling these titles for over 4k for more than a decade. These machines are of a similar caliber. I have spoken to Herb about these and he knows of the person that restored them.
I have always dealt with DMD titles and took a chance on these not realizing the demand for EM's was this low.
The main reason I purchased them is there is a local collector that was going to buy 2 or 3 of them and changed his mind before they even arrived. I am selling them at a big loss so obviously I overpaid.

Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

Sorry for your loss. Don't think a downvote was necessary , but oh well. I'll take high road and not do the same to you. Like I said, just my opinion. I wont go into details about seeing and playing them that day at auction. I really don't think any EM is worth more than $1k, just don't. Value and bang for your buck can yield 2-3 nice DMD's at this price for 5. Or one A-list game.
Brings me back to original question, who and why does any dealer flipper feel an Em is worth this much?
Just because one Dealer sells at a high price doesn't mean that sets the bar that high. I'm sure we all have had one or 2 pins go for way more than we thought we would get. Doesn't mean that's the benchmark from now on a that title. Nice CQ Earthshaker recently sold for $3600, doesn't mean all Earthshakers are now that much, even with new decals, display, ramps and plastics, led lighting and of course, "Was stripped to field and every part cleaned". Still an Earthshaker value $2800.
Restored or not, just an EM,and I'm a huge fan of them. They all have there unique qualities and everyone should have one in there collection. Personally I'v had 8 now over the years. Enjoyed the hell out of them. Regret selling a couple, want my 2001 back. Worked my ass off on them, fixing switches and cleaning, rubbers and lighting. never felt the need to charge double what I paid, maybe made $50 on all of them. I was just happy to bring a pin back to life and sell to a first time pin buyer or someone happy to find a title they had been looking for. I'm not in the business of making money off of selling pinballs. I'll leave that to the guys that pick them up on craigslist, drive them cross town and add $1000 bucks to purchase price next week.

"Sorry for your loss. Don't think a downvote was necessary , but oh well. I'll take high road and not do the same"
Commenting and saying this is a "horrible deal" was a little unnecessary and not taking the "high road" in my opinion. If your'e not interested that is fine. There are plenty of other posts.

"Brings me back to original question, who and why does any dealer flipper feel an Em is worth this much?"
I don't know if there is any guideline to know what a restored EM is worth. That is why we put them for sale and listen to offers.

Quoted from SoCalPinballs:

Your right, maybe woke up on wrong side of the broom today. I've had a lot of pinballs and really dont get why Em's reached this mark. It's a general annoyance that I lashed out on you.
Like the new Get Smart Avatar. So I up voted you.
Moving on, GLWS.
They were pretty that day at auction and caught my eye.

Is there someone specific you are referring to as the pin I bought from a Fullerton pinsider was awesome and a great transaction.

Ummm because that's what they regularly sell for? I rarely price police either but there are a bunch of EM's that regularly sell for over $1K, so I think you're a bit out of touch there. Sounds like you value the play of SS and more modern games over earlier classics and that's fine, but just be aware that there are other guys out there that feel the opposite. To take your analogy and twist it, they're looking at the price for a modern A list game and thinking "Wow...I can get 5 Classic EM's for that....". I know nothing about the condition of the OP's games, but at least 3 of the 5 titles there regularly sell for $1K+ in "average" condition. If they are truly totally restored, the asking price may not be that far off. Personally I think the OP would be better off selling them individually rather than trying a group sale. Bulk only sales always significantly reduce your market. (Full disclosure, I own both Central Park and Buckaroo titles....)

Sorry, back to the buying and selling.....

#4894 5 years ago

I still have a great playing Tommy for sale. Can't believe it hasn't sold for $2000. Yeah blinders are missing and it has some dings but it's a fully led functioning perfectly Tommy. Hard to buy any dmd title for that.

Thank you and how's the Champion Pub doing?

#4898 5 years ago
Quoted from Sticky:

I bought from a Fullerton pinsider was awesome and a great transaction.

A lot of my games including the first ones I ever purchased came from the same pinsider in Fullerton. And I couldn't be happier. Very convenient and easy to deal with.

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I really don't think any EM is worth more than $1k, just don't.

Then you may never own one of the better or rare ones. There are plenty of Shaq- Attack like EMS out there that will suit your budget though.

#4899 5 years ago

In regards to the above mentioned EMs. .

None are what I'm really looking for, but they are popular titles with some. Cabinet repaints with the correct splatter would go a long way towards getting them sold.
