Wow. $830 didn't meet the reserve for that thing?

#2103 3 years ago

My guess is the winning bidder backed out after seeing the machine in person.

Quoted from Captive_Ball:

I would think so as well b/c there wasn't a reserve price that I saw. If the winning bidder backed out the seller can offer "second chance" to the #2 bidder so it seems a little odd the seller re-listed instead. Here are the bids over $600 for the previous auction - note 3 bidders who place bids at or over $800:

Why take the risk of a new auction closing much lower unless you've made it far enough down the list such that you don't like the money you are getting?

I have sold a lot of vintage baseball cards on eBay and have noticed that a lot of time the second place bidder will back out as well. I guess people get caught up in the heat of the moment when bidding. I've been pretty lucky in relisting items though.

Not everyone is aware of this feature.

The back-up bidder may not accept their last bid in an effort to get the item at an even lower price when the item is relisted.

There was one in Illinois a few months back that sold around $125

#2120 3 years ago

You probably could have grabbed it...say it with me...if it was closer.

(Almost didn't recognize you with that new avatar. ...welcome back.)

Quoted from RyanClaytor:

(Almost didn't recognize you with that new avatar. ...welcome back.)

It was about 25 miles from me...so if that's not close enough, I'm in the wrong hobby. Hahaha. The guy said "I have someone coming to look at it today, but I'll get back to you." Ad was removed and he never did, so I assumed it was gone. Of all places, it was in the lobby of a used car dealership. Go figure.

And the avatar needed updating...good to be back!

Want! But it's "local pick up only" and I'm almost as far away as you can get from there in the lower 48.

Doesn't that always seem like the issue? Most of the machines I see that I want to jump on are several states away....and going west from where I live it takes 12 hours just to get out of Texas! I feel your pain.

I need good pinhead friends in all sates

What's worse is, I flagged a bunch of those spam posts, and got my IP banned from CL! Thankfully they unbanned me pretty quick.

They're even spamming us here in Anchorage and up in Fairbanks.

OP: This is a very rare machine. It was built to commemorate the lifting of the ban on pinball in New York State. It is an add-a-ball machine. The machine is a project. The backglass displays well, but has some lifting. The cabinet looks good, but needs to be reglued in places. I am open to offers/ trades.
