Quoted from Pecos:

Can someone please explain to me how the Eight Ball Deluxe, 8,250 made, has an estimated value of $2800 on Pinside and Eight Ball Deluxe LE, 2,388 made, has an estimated value of only $1300 on Pinside? Irregardless, don't see many of these for sale.

The 81' version is considered amoung EBD enthusiasts as the most desirable of the three runs, 81, 82 (LE), 84. The reason the number is $2800, is because many of the 81's are fully restored and can command $4-6K. The LE is considered the ugly duckling of the group. Still the same great playing machine, but it has the Rapid Fire cabinet. Same can also be said for Centaur and Centaur II.

Bad glass but cabinet looks nice. Worthy pickup in non-working condition if anybody can talk him down $100.

It is a fun machine. I have a verbal agreement to purchase a beautiful Surf Champ with mint backglass perfect gameplay or I may have taken a shot at this one. Both of his machines have the same problem, which I find interesting.

Read that as "First good project game here" and said "Wait a second...", hah!

Straight Flush is such a beautiful game, unfortunately never played one yet though. I love the staircase artwork on the playfield, almost makes it feel like a ramp. I think this title is next in my planned Williams 70's-only "big-number-reel-only" (+ personally-desired 1969 Post Time/Paddock & 1969 Seven Up/Set Up) single player collection. Man, when I get a row filled up with these things like I have my wedgehead collection it is going to look sweet, except nobody has done this one before as far as I've seen. These won my heart almost just as much as the wedgeheads. The ones I'm after all have a very similar look and will be a great beautiful collection to me, the earliest machine I want was conveniently also the first Williams single player with 3" flippers, but I didn't want to note that as that's not the reason I like them so much, it's in the look and then the play. Finding a name for what to call these is almost harder than collecting them!

It's interesting how different (but also great) they can play from the Gottlieb machines as well. Doodle Bug/Love Bug is another great one.

Photo credit of Straight Flush, to IPDB & the uploader there. If it were closer I would snag it.

These card hand based gottliebs all seem really cool in theory but I've never gotten the chance to play one to find out if it's actually anything more than knocking the whole bank down...

Otaku, notice the similarity to Williams Expo - 1969. Expo's spinner is in the backbox instead of the playfield:

I also took a liking to Expo and have watched your video more than once, actually!

Jive Time also has the spinner in the backbox. Only thing with that game is I wish they didn't use so much (bright) RED!

Royal Flush is worth trying out. Drop targets don't reset but still a good game.

Jacks Open has a progressive poker hand feature and resetting drop targets after you complete each hand.

You're right. I'm so used to seeing Triple Action I wasn't paying attention. Thanks RCA1 for the correction!

Edit: Looks like Williams made the same mistake. From IPDB: "The small print on the backglass showing the manufacturer name and copyright date also shows the name 'Triple Action' which is the replay version of this game."

#3591 2 years ago

Jive Time got here today after waiting 2~ months and working my ass off to save up for the shipping bill. I had to move stuff around to get it inside my garage (temporary) so I had them leave it outside the garage door. On the way out wheeling back a shitty $100 "why did I buy this it's a piece of shit" arcade machine into my driveway to reorganize and make some room, due to the awful base it fell off the cart, fell sideways, took a quarter sized chunk of paint off of the near perfect side of Jive Time, then hit me (bleeding pretty bad but nothing major, just skin), then fell face first onto my driveway in all of it's 300 pound particleboard cabinet fury.

Large black scuff marks and lost paint on Jive Time, a little less and less as it went down. I'm absolutely crushed. After that and my pinball high going to a very low pissed off low, never has this hobby brought me so close to frustrated tears. Figured since I was updating the story here I'd put it here, had to vent somewhere.

I guess I'll try my best to touch it up, but I don't think it'll ever be the same unless there's some wonder method. I wish I had a time machine so I could have reacted differently. I'd prefer that arcade machine falling to the ground and bursting to pieces instead if it saved the paint. What an awful awful feeling.

#3592 2 years ago

Don't beat yourself up over it. It didn't knock your Jive Time over when it fell so the outcome could have been considerably worse. You learned a lesson. You won't do it again. And you didn't lose the game as a result.

#3593 2 years ago

Yes and also be grateful the backglass didn't break!

#3594 2 years ago

Very true. Thanks for the kind words, they helped. Even being quite careful I feel like I do this way too much, luckily nothing large scale, but these little mess ups are brutal. I guess sometimes they're just unavoidable, especially in a hobby where they're such a big deal, and a very physically demanding hobby at that. Let's lighten this up a bit, I'll post pictures shortly of its arrival.

#3595 2 years ago

Thanks for listing this, Pecos! Just think... you are one of the SOLE reasons behind a pinball machine crossing the entire width of the United States. Weird, huh?

Anyways, here it is! Unfortunately no photos of it's good side, I guess it was in a corner or something because the left side (the side that unfortunately took the hit) is like almost spotless beautiful while the right side has more wear. I love it, and I'm gonna love it. Time will heal my frustration I'm sure.

Works good! Needs a proper pop bumper cap and adjustment on one of the reels as stated in the original ad, but it works. Popped the jones plugs in, pulled the cord out and just put it through the back door spot temporarily, grabbed an extension cord, and played it right outside. No shame!

It's come a long way from the mountains of Southern California! License tag on the apron says Wisconsin. This machine has seen and been a lot of places! Now it's in its forever home.

#3596 2 years ago

A real beauty for sure! It could have been a lot worse; for you and the machine.

#3597 2 years ago

Have only seen this game once and played it down in Texas (Houston) probably 15 yrs or so ago. As I recall it was very frustrating to say the least. I couldn't keep the ball alive long enough to really score anything. Very open playfield to say the least. Don't forget to post pics after you've torn your hair trying to beat it!

#3598 2 years ago

Has the add-a-ball score cards, a covered credit window, and a Wisconsin license tag... yup, add-a-ball state! Then to California, then to New Jersey. Pretty cool.

Sorry for clogging up the thread guys! As you were...

Anyways, turns out a little break and then going back to it and enjoying pinball on it is the best medicine for feeling upset. Plays great, needs a few little tweaks, but then we'll be golden... or should I say jivin'. (Yes, I still need to take the "shipping securing" tape off of the backglass!)
