    Just curious what might be the oldest NIB game out there still sitting in it's box awaiting discovery. I've heard plenty of stories of NIB Black Knight's still kicking around, and just heard one about a NIB EM today....so naturally I'm curious.

    There was an interflip dragon posted a year or two ago from 1977.

    DennisDodel posted about a couple of old NIB bingo games that were going to be unboxed at a show.

    There's a guy in NorCal with some NIB bingo machines

    #4 7 months ago

    I’ve seen an Allied Leisure Getaway nib somewhere also, ‘77 or ‘78 I think

    I had a NIB Black Knight two or three years ago. I traded it + cash for a MMR. Kinda wish I had opened it when I owned it.

    About 10 years ago I saw these NIB bowlers from the 50ies at an operator:

    Don't know where they ended up as they closed down and everything got sold a few years ago..

    1962 NIB Bally Silver Sails (bingo) will be unboxed at York show Fri 10/12 at 10:30am. Come check it out people.

    Johns Jukes had a bunch of nib games along with nib videos.

    #9 7 months ago

    I believe Classic Pinball in NJ has a NIB Chicago Coin Sound Stage or Jukebox if anybody is looking for one. I've looked in the top of the box, it's pretty cool.

    July 1976. Almost as old as me!

    I wonder what it's worth to the right person. I'd guess $3000-4000 but you never know.

    Whippersnapper!

    I unboxed an NIB Rockola World Series 32 years ago.....it was around 50 years old then....

    #12 7 months ago

    Definitely not the oldest since others have brought up a couple examples of bingos, but I feel like a year or so ago there was a NIB Jurassic Park that went up for sale.

    Volunteers needed for filming! Please contact me for details. I plan to edit a video together of the unboxing and post online for those that cannot attend, but I would love to have several (or many!) angles.

    Lots of questions will be answered by this unboxing. Join us!

    That one was a scam I believe.

    Not pinball, but I’ve been told by a few sources that there are a couple NIB Computer Space arcade games that exist. Pretty interesting as it the first commercial arcade game.

    Have any of you guys seen cases of fraud where used games were boxed back up in an attempt to sell them for NIB?

    Thanks again for all of your help Nick. I have been out of the bingo 'loop' for a while, so I am looking forward to the unboxing and meeting old friends and new bingophiles.
    The game was originally shipped from the Bally factory to an operator in Omaha, Nebraska. I picked up the game in Morris, Minnesota this past July. Hopefully the game will be playable but I have my doubts after 46 years in Nebraska and Minnesota winters.
    Stop by if you can. No idea what might be in the box. Silver Sails, a load of bricks, Jimmy Hoffa?

    Edit: Should be 56 years. Not 46. Math was not my best subject. Surprised no one caught it.

    Yeah I too thought that NIB JP post on Facebook seemed pretty scammy. No real details.

    Great idea! I purchased Sega X-Files NIB in 1997 and kept the box and all the original packaging.
    All I need to do is zero out the game count and pack it all back up.

    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    It would be totally choice if you opened the box in front of everyone and a mummified body, old doll or Slenderman tumbled out..

    Does a Coleco SuperShot count?

    losangeles.craigslist.org link

    1976 vintage toy thing that kinda looks like nobody played with it.

    Wow that thing is massive!! Box is in impressive condition for being neglected over 56 years! I hope you folks plan to keep the box too, it’s absolutely incredible!
    And yes I am one of those weirdos who keeps the boxes and paperwork for their expensive toys.

    The box, and everything that is in the box will be saved.

    I own the NIB Jurassic Park and i have yet to remove it from the box. There was a scammer trying to say he owned it.

    I still have my NIB InterFlip Dragon EM pin still in the box,
    that I bought about 10 yrs ago at PAGG.
    We did peek inside the box that contained the head
    just to make sure the Backglass was intact.

    Probably to encapsulate it in amber, then set it aside for 65 million years.
