Pinball has hit a fever pitch like we havent seen since the 90's or maybe ever. This is great!?...pinball has survived! But, at what cost?
I started buying pins back in 2016, when prices were still "reasonable", but now...well you know where im going.
Anyhow, i wanted to start this thread hoping to hear from hobbyist new and old.
When did you get in?
What was your first purchase?
How much was it?
Thoughts on how things used to be, how they are now, and your future in this hobby as it continues to spiral out of control.
Myself... i had a video game collection and decided to sell most of it to buy a Bride of Pinbot ($2800)...20 pins later and im still addicted to everything pinball. Checking the market hourly, listening to all the pods, and anticipating every new release!
If youre reading this you are probably addicted just like me... but thats not a bad thing...after all.... its just pinball. Right???
