Note, we are not affiliated with Pinball Resource - Just passing this info on

It appears that they got all the NOS playfields they sent to Gottlieb Development back and are now selling them

----------------------------

http://pbresource.com/special.html

We have purchased the Gottlieb® Archive playfields. We thought these playfields belong in a game instead of an archive. The archive contained 1 of each title. These are all NOS playfields, but may Not be Mint, they will have some surface scratches, dings, cupped inserts, planking, etc... from storage and age.

A lot of these playfield titles have not been available for many years(if ever), if you are interested in one, suggest purchasing now, before someone else buys it.

The following is a list of the playfields we got, if the price says sold, the playfield has already been sold, Sorry.

Update 6/9/14 Announcement of importance to Gottlieb® pinball collectors, restorers, and historians.

On Thursday my crew plus a professional moving crew moved into PBR storage the bulk of the remaining Gottlieb® archives, bringing most everything Gottlieb® back under one roof. Let me explain.

When Premier Technology was closed and dispersed there were a number of major pieces:
-already built GAMES (sold by Gottlieb® Development)
-PARTS:
-bulk parts were auctioned in Chicago in 1995 along with other assets of production tooling
-replacement parts were packed up and shipped to Mondial Distributing in Springfield, NJ to be made available for replacement needs...these parts ended up here at PBR several years later
-DOCUMENTATION was retained by Gottlieb® Development and shipped to their headquarters in Pelham, NY. Over the years, Gottlieb® has been generous with the access to this material as we needed information for re-making parts....but because it was in "storage conditions" the bulk of it was not really accessable (and we didnt know how extensive it was until relatively recently)
-PARTS (again)...because any move of this complexity and magnitude is imperfect, some parts remained mixed with what went to Pelham and when things like the playboards came here, we were asked to return for their archive one playfield of each title before we were able to sell the remaining playboards.
-TOOL RECORDS (from late 40s) and the bills of material (for mid 80s and up) were sent to us when Premier was dispersed. We have had this and used this since.

So...what has arrived here is the documentation and the remaining parts!....and the sorting and sleuthing begins...here is how I see it unfolding:
-the playfields are inventoried and will be offered for sale coincident with this news announcement.
-the parts will be inventoried and put onto the shelf as routine business...this will happen over the next few weeks...at this writing we do not know what the inventory is but a quick look over the boxes indicates mostly mechanical parts
-the documentation sorting has begun with me working nights and weekends to assemble a workable retrieval system of a massive amount of information which includes (at the time of this writing): original schematics and manuals with production notes, variations for individual markets, problems discovered in production/operation, bills of material, factory photos of the games, their inside details, artwork films, etc. Pretty exciting stuff! It will take a major effort over time to understand and relate all the information. Gottlieb® ran an impeccably well documented and controlled manufacturing operation...they recorded everything important to control production and saved it. The documentation begins with the first game after World War II...so this an extensive history. So far, I see only a few unexplained gaps where I fear files have been lost in the several moves that this material has had. Stay tuned, as they say, for more details.

We have access to the bills of material already (WWII to end of System/1). This will allow questions to be answered that are not documented in any of the parts catalogs. This "immediate availability" is a bit of an oversimplification....all this material up to the mid-late 80s is hardcopy....not in any information retrieval system, hardcopy....filing cabinets, folders, rolls of paper, bankers boxes of files, etc.

list came out today

I wish I could afford a few of these but funds are limited. Bummed I am not able to pick up some of these for the $270 I got my NOS TX pf for last year, but compeltely understand considering these are the LAST of what will be.

I was super excited but then quickly bummed to see no Stargate pf.
