Hi All -

I purchased a pinball machine today and to my surprise, when I lifted up the playfield at home, this PCB was sitting at the bottom of the cabinet. I can assume by the labels that this is a Tron PCB. I'm very unfamiliar with arcades, and could use some help with what this is, and what it might be worth? Of course, working condition is unknown at this time.

It does look like a Tron.
A working one will be between 200 to 300$ I think.
However to know of it works you have to test it with a test board or a cabinet.
Tron being a pre-jamma game, you'll need an adapter to test it on a jamma hardware.

Cool. Thanks for the information. I'm sure people will have solace in knowing it was 'OK' in January, 2002 from the label!

Definitely a typical Tron 3-board stack PCB. After-market ROM labels which tells me it's been worked on before. That's not a bad thing at all. In fact, hopefully a good thing in that it's fixed. $200-$300 for a working one is a reasonable price.

I can test it, but you'd have to ship it as I'm in the Chicago area. Tron is a pretty popular game though. Ask around to your other local collecting buddies. I bet either someone has one or they know someone who does.
