Manufacturer: Gottlieb
Game/Type: Top Card / EM 1 Player
Month/Year: August 1974
Production: 3,100
Cost: $395
Location: Millard (Omaha), NE
Link/Contact: omaha.craigslist.org link

Condition: Lots of Pics! Light wear around inserts and minor planking in middle of playfield above flippers. OP: " The machine is in overall very good condition. It has been cleaned, the playfield waxed, all rubber is new and all lights are working. The backglass is perfect and the cabinet is in very nice condition. It plays very nicely and the only issue is that, at times, a new game must be started twice to completely reset the score and ball counter. It is set to free play.

I received this machine with some other pinball machines in a trade but I am a pinball enthusiast who knows more about the early solid-state machines, so this doesn't really fit my collection."

Manufacturer: Mylstar
Game/Type: Ready...Aim...Fire! / SS 4 Player

It's legit. He's got a new girlfriend and moving to a new apartment. Pins gotta go. A 'semi-hobbyist'. I talked to the guy and almost pulled the trigger on the deal. Just don't have the room right now. The Ready Aim Fire is a rare machine with only 390 produced. He gave the run down on the machines and they are, in his words, in "semi-collector's condition".

Ready Aim Fire is a tough machine to sell for some reason. Even with low production number no one seems to care. I have actually owned 3 of them over the past 7 or 8 years and always had a hard time getting $500 out of them (shopped and working 100%). I really don't understand why you see so many of these come up for sale since they only made 390 of them but since I have been in the hobby this is about the 12th one I have heard about (or seen) for sale?

Sure is. That, coupled with the nice glass and playfield make this a great deal at $500.

Is a $400, non-working Darling a deal? I took a look at the IPDB pictures for this one and it looks like there's basically nothing to do on this game, except loop the captive balls from one side to the other. The comments on IPDB aren't positive either. I checked the ebay sales listing from bostonpinball and the long term average is $283.

I guess we're not arguing about whether something is a deal or not but rather that it's a project pin that was for sale...

Dave

#1834 3 years ago

Darling doesn't have a reputation as a great player. But then I have learned the ones with bad reps are rarely as bad as you're led to believe. The same thing seems to apply to the ones with good reps. I'm guessing it may be fairly fun in competition to steal you're opponents captive balls.

#1835 3 years ago

Good point Alex. I always say that I've never met a pinball machine that I didn't like - it's just that I like some more than others. All games have something to offer. It just seemed like $400 for what I presumed was a non-working Darling, seemed a bit high. Oh well, as long as someone got it and will enjoy it, that's all that matters.

#1836 3 years ago

This one looks slightly more interesting and cheaper.

I contacted this guy last week when it first went up for sale and he's reluctant to answer any questions or send any pictures...I don't have time for that so I haven't followed up on this one. I never understand people who have stuff for sale that don't want to do the minimum to sell a game. That, to me, is a red flag.

The other red flag is that it is in a pretty sketchy part of town. I've been seeing a few pins that look like good deals here and there on Chi CL, but they are in very questionable neighborhoods (to put it lightly), so I don't even bother.

#1848 3 years ago

Welcome RazerX! Thanks for adding your red flag insight.

#1849 3 years ago

Bwahahaha here's a good laugh for today. I guess this really belongs in the Craigslist laughs thread ... but it's a project pin too!
