Quoted from jaytrem:

Got it! Meeting was postponed for 15 min. It's a Sky Lab missing it's head. Must have burnt up on re-entry. Got a little wet, but not bad. The playfield is in real nice shape. May end up as wall art. Was a super quick pickup so didn't look it over that well. Will post pics later.
Thanks again to parzval and ibuypinballs for the heads up!

that's awesome! Wonder what happened?
Think they're worth following up with later?

Probably not. Can't believe they would bother to put it out and post a free sign on it and not bother with the head. Maybe somebody else took it and didn't want to deal with the cabinet (still had the legs on). I did email the craigslist poster to thank her and have the ad removed. I'll send another asking her to keep an eye out in case the head shows up on the curb.

too-many-pins Do you have a cabinet head for a Skylab or a head to an em with similar internal mechs?

I was actually wondering the same thing. I don't think so but I'll be moving a ton of stuff around over the next couple weeks so I will keep my eyes open for one.

Condition: "...in used as-is condition. Playfield, Cabinet and backglass are used condition. Machine was once on a route and has been in my collection for over a year in an air conditioned space. I haven't played it since the Fall 2016. Pics upon request. Fun game!"

#10561 1 year ago
Quoted from Ballypin:

That went FAST. Hopefully Nic nabbed it for the RPM.

I bought TNT's 1968/69 Bally Cosmos, as soon as I viewed the listing on Saturday, which was about 12 hours after it appeared on various pinball sites. TNT is only 30 miles from me. This project game has good bones and should clean up well. The original backglass is particularly nice. TNT's Todd Tuckey had a foreign buyer; but, chose to sell it locally to avert the shipping hassle. The sale was seemless and I had fun playing the games at TNT. Todd was very courteous.

I suppose that Nic and his museum will snag the next Cosmos which appears for sale on the east coast.

Meanwhile, I am seeking to buy an apron, plunger cover, and red flippers with raised lettering. One flipper is cracked and I'm unsure how well this apron will clean up in terms of the graphics. Here is the apron I'm seeking to replace, plus a photo of the playfield as found, the cabinet, and a photo of the well-preserved backglass.

#10562 1 year ago

Congrats on your Cosmos score !! The BG looks in amazing shape. I found mine in Boston last year and made a 2 day driving adventure (ala ryanclaytor ) to pick it up. I need to hit up Steve at BGResto and get a new BG for mine. That apron in lime green is similar to other Bally titles so finding a replacement may not be so difficult.

The prior owner placed a redundant nail between the zipper flippers. I will have to repair the holes in that area with Bondo. Fortunately, there are no security bar holes on the front (photo attached) so at least that indignity was spared. The game came with original schematics and above-average correct legs, which is always a plus.

Todd recorded a video of the purchase. I imagine that he will post it on the TNT site, at some point.

I recently restored a Bally Surfers and Rocket III, two other Ted Zale zipper flipper games. Sold my '72 Fireball over a decade ago. I guess that I am on the zipper flipper train, at the moment.

ANTIQUE SALE

Manufacturer: Gottlieb
Game/Type: Bronco / EM 4 Player
Month/Year: April 1977
Production: 9,160
Cost: $2,400*
Location: Corpus Christi, TX
Link/Contact: corpuschristi.craigslist.org link

DATES: THU 08/20 - SAT 08/22

Me: When I asked what pin it was they said "Gottlieb 1969 Bronco player machine with keys and instruction manual. It works great, a few lights are out and every once in a while it gets stuck, just hit reset and it is fine. I'm asking $2400. I can text you a picture." I'd value this as worth $200-300 depending on cosmetics.

*This is an example of "Pinball is hot" pricing by non-pinball collectors.

This is spoken for and mine now!! Sadly when she said “some rust” it means I had to pry on the lockdown bar for literally 10 minutes to free it up in order to take a look under... it’s rough but I hope to bring it back.
It’s also got pretty significant moisture damage.
Such a gamble!

Quoted from trk12fire:

Here's a depressing thought....99.2% of the pins you want are located too far away from you to pick up. Of the remaining 0.8% within driving range, 78% are overpriced. So if I did my math right, you have less than 6 tenths of 1 percent chance of findiing and buying your next project.

OP: Condition of game is as follows: cabinet worn, chipped, missing and touched up original paint, has legs, bolts, front& rear doors. Playfield has some minor wear and tear, touched up spots, all plastics and bumper caps present, new rubber rings, overall looks good with bright colors. Back glass is faded, missing paint.

I’m curious as to why you feel this way. I’m not seeing hundreds of project games for sale in Georgia. Do you have a secret technique to finding projects in Georgia? If you do, send me a pm so that we can keep it a secret

#10594 1 year ago
Quoted from TopMoose:

You're not factoring in all the other buyers in the area who will swoop in before you can get to the game you want!

Don’t forget other buyers that travel from out of state to get that local game that you really want. About six months ago a friend drive five hours from TN to snake a deal on a Frontier in GA. The seller told me that I was second in line. I’m returning the favor and I’m picking up a project in TN next weekend.

Only posting 10,526 was a pin located in GA. I live in GA and post projects that I find from around the country. Are you saying that I should only post projects that are in my state?
