    The vast majority of pinball guys here are not JUST thinking about the commodity value of the machines they buy, they are RELYING on that value to be there in order to perpetuate the hobby and have the liquid funds easily recoupable to pay for real-life stuff. Unlike cars, snowmobiles, boats and other high dollar hobby items, pins are not really available through loans (unless you use your own credit card or HELOC or something). The hobby didn’t previously require a massive cost of entry it now does. Buying and flipping games for 500-2000 is a lot different than 5000-20000. If you aren’t thinking about long term value when you buy these things you are either wealthy enough not to care or you are lying to yourself
