    Expired!

    Listing too low. Fishy. I contacted and said I’d pay full price and where can I come pick it up and received a pic and “here is the photo you requested”. Then no word since. Beware.

    Report it.

    4700 is too low of a price? For the pictures and description, sound like a very fair deal these days. Somethings called out in the description match up with the pictures. Looks legit to me.

    I'd still approach this cautiously. Seller just joined Pinside. He posted his ad and donated money all on the same day, and has never made a Forum post. Most people who don't know what they got would probably just go on CL for a local sale.

    I would be very careful doing a long distance deal. His reply to the OP was a sign of a scammer not a serious seller.

    Yeah exactly. The price is the LEAST fishy part here.

    exactly. price is spot on. really nice ones go for between $5-$6k.

    but OP, i'm confused.. did you say "i'll pay full price, tell me where to pick it up?", or did you ask for pix? seems to me if he's writing you saying "here's the photo you requested", you probably asked for pix. which is different than "i'll take it", and that can explain the ghosting. but if you didn't even ask for pix, then yeah, that's bizarre.

    I didn’t ask for pic at all. I said I’ll take it. Full price. I’ll bring cash. Where should I pick it up? And he responded “here’s the picture you requested” and sent a random pic of the center of the playfield.

    The pinside ad does say "pick up".
    Would be a long drive from idaho.
