    Is there a website that shows all the PAPA tokens? After the PAPA website change the posting with the token pictures seems to have been removed. It used to exist on the blog. I would like to compare my collection to the existing list and see what I may need to find for this trip.

    #2 6 years ago

    I will have to double-check if there are any missing on my end, but I have artwork for 26 of them.

    I do not see the IFPA PAPA token on your list either.

    Quoted from snyper2099:

    Yep. That one was missing. I just dug into the old orders, found it, and added it.

    If anyone else spots one that's missing, let me know.

    mhs...how many of these tokens are still in circulation? One would guess that many have been gobbled up by folks collecting them.

    Is there still an opportunity to find each unique pressing?

    thanks for sharing,

    I would say that there is no way to know which are still available. Last time I was there I found a rare token. That goes into the keep bin.

    They're all still in circulation. I keep an eye out for the two or three most rare ones and still see them occasionally.

    Ok, looks like the hunt is on for this weekend If I can stop blindly plugging them into the games

    #12 6 years ago

    I can bring some extras along if people want to trade... I am aware of 3 that I am missing and I've been going to PAPA for 5 years!

    #13 6 years ago

    I set aside a bunch at Pinburgh but then got lazy and didn't want to break a $100 so in the machines they went.

    #14 6 years ago

    I have one extra papa token set and (cherry wood?) display box from the papa kickstarter, still brand new in the box for anyone that's interested.

    I had my neighbor purchase it for me for an international pinsider that decided afterwards that they didn't want it.

    from the kickstarter campaign:
    "20-WAY COMBO DELUXE. Based on record demand for token sets, we are now offering them in a deluxe case mounted for your viewing pleasure. The case you receive will contain a complete mint-condition set of every token PAPA has produced (there are 20 of them), including the new token available only through this campaign."

    edit:
    correction, there are 27 [uncirculated] tokens included with the display case. 26 that came with the case, and an additional token that PAPA mailed out (still sealed in the envelope)

    #15 6 years ago

    I donated to the PAPA TV Kickstarter and received 27 tokens with a display case.

    Very cool sets guys...

    Despite my best efforts, still a few tokens short. Had a great time sorting and playing though, thanks PAPA!

    I am missing these 2 still. If anyone wants to trade, I think I have dupes of all the rest. I will be at Chi pinball EXPO this year as well. I also have some Seigecraft tokens and other older arcade tokens to trade as well.

    #18 6 years ago

    Nice, I've been keeping a stash each year, pissing off my friends because I'm wasting time sorting though cups. The big thing that threw me off was the reverse image ones. After I saw that it was like "oh crap, do these all have reverse images?"

    #19 6 years ago

    Yeah the pirate ship is the only one I dont have too, apparently the rarest of the bunch.

    I have an extra tv backer token if anyone wants to swap for a pirate ship?

    were there no papa 17 issued tokens this year?

    #20 6 years ago

    Woo hoo! I caught them all. That link is what I was looking for. It wasn't updated when I last checked.

    The one with the GR using a cab as a boat is to commemorate the flood at PAPA a few years back. I think it is the rarest of the bunch.

    I also collect arcade tokens, specifically vintage arcade and pinball tokens. If this is your bag, drop me a p.m. and we can talk tokens. (and those drawn to exonumia, I am also a vecturist)

    #21 6 years ago

    There was no PAPA 17 token made according to Mark. Snyper2099 I think I have a spare of the rowing token, I'll check and let you know.

    #22 6 years ago

    that rowing token is dope! I had some extras I just looked through from Pinburgh. I have on FSPA and will be at Expo if any FSPA folks want that. I gave the BAPA ones to my BAPA friends. If anyone wants any of these let me know:photo.JPG

    #23 6 years ago

    I made this little cheat sheet today to figure out what I needed.

    You can get the PDF at the bottom of the post. Not sure why its showing an image for the pdf attachment.
    Print the pdf and you're off to easily figuring out which ones you need

    Those will be really hard to find for sure. Good luck on your search.

    The flood tokens ARE hard to find. I know I spent over an hour going through the token tub at PAPA and didn't find a single one. I will say if you talk to the right people at PAPA you may just get one....

    The pirate ship (tech tribute) tokens can be found. I saw lots of those in the tub. I may have an extra pirate ship.. I will PM if I find it.

    #26 6 years ago

    I will find them. This ain't my first rodeo. I actually had both of them and gave them away to a friend at PAPA. Here's my extras. If someone is interested in other tokens, I have been collecting them for quite a long time.

    I had two of the flood tokens, but I traded one with a friend for the pirate ship token.

    Is it Bride of Pinbot?
