Quoted from yaksplat:

Boards are green

Yeah what could that even mean. Battery puke is a bummer. Thinking about this one...

Quoted from nascarrey:

Eight Ball
High Speed
For sale here....
Me: from the looks of the pins in the pics- these are definitely projects....each looks to have multiple issues....

That's literally right down the road from my office. I'll probably go check em out. Eight Ball seems to be in nice condition...

Quoted from Ballypin:

What is the chance that THIS is actual picture of the machine ??

Quoted from Ritewing:

Here is a project we all want to jump in on.
Who gets there first?
Card Trix
Williams EM
Apalachin, NY
From the owner: "Needs fixing up but the bones seem good."

My condolences to the family of whoever gets ax murdered picking up this pin.

#18111 1 year ago
Quoted from alexmogil:

What's bizarre is that it was like 3 minutes away from me. I search for arcade games and pinball games on Facebook, have alerts set up, but I don't see it at all. Then I see the word Belpre as I am scrolling by on Pinside and it's like what the hell?

Love seeing pinheads helping pinheads out with deals. Great grab. I would love to play one of these sometime. Art package is kind of dorky but the gameplay looks cool!

by Jaybird Auctions

I've been really interested by Jaybird Auctions. They post a LOT of pins over time and I'm curious what the actual prices end up going for. Some fairly good stock from time to time.

#18201 1 year ago
Quoted from boilerman:

they over charge on everything, coin op warehouse, jaybird, hub city you name it, not a deal to be had. i avoid them like the plague.

Quoted from too-many-pins:

Jaybird Auctions is Lloyd's daughter and a good many of the machines and stuff sold are from Coinopwarehouse. Not saying that is a good (or bad) thing just figured I would give some "history" to where that inventory keeps coming from. Over the years Lloyd & his family have branched out in many different directions. But from my recent experiences with his stuff typically it is selling for top dollar (plus some).

Thanks for all the insider info people! I've seen a *few* deals pop up on Invaluable but never followed anything on AuctionZip.

#18207 1 year ago
Quoted from Murphdom:

So in case anyone cares. There is no starting bid on these...I called and asked. Also Brewer,ME is in the middle of nowhere. My in-laws live nearby. So you have a pretty good chance of scoring a good deal if you want either one of these.

Hmmmmmmm I do need to bring my pedal steel up to Bangor soon so maybe I"ll make the trip for that big shot. Bummer that the front of the cabinet is so destroyed and that there's no playfield pictures.

Edit: somewhere between "holy shit" and "my god" and "why the hell would anybody do this" turns out they used to hang these two games FROM THE GOD DAMNED CEILING. I literally cannot think of a more useless, dangerous, and completely insane use of a pinball machine.

#18214 1 year ago
Quoted from cottonm4:

Useless = subjective term. One man's meat is another man's poison.
dangerous = not if they are suspended properly.
Completely insane = subjective term. They look to be hung intact. I would be overjoyed is one of my grail pins was hung up like that, not being used, and very little wear on the play field.

I guess so. But I sure as hell wouldn't sit under those. I may go check this one out. Big Shot is on my list of games I like a lot and wouldn't mind having. Love 2 player games.

#18253 1 year ago
Quoted from Murphdom:

For those considering going to the auction. There is also an Airport for sale in town as well

Always blows my mind when someone lists something for sale with the old price tag still on it. I would assume its the same one that was for sale a few years ago here: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/archive/25366

Not a particularly valuable game either.

Rock for $600 in MA. “Fully Functional” but hey, you know how that goes.

#18399 1 year ago
Quoted from tomdrum:

A couple projects on Mr Pinball this AM:
Ready Aim Fire, 1983 Gottlieb: 900.00
Rare game only 390 made. Backglass has some flaking still looks good. Good playfield & cabinet. Looks complete clean boards have not tested. Not a Gottlieb guy. Open to trades if local.
Chuck Phone: 401-871-5715
[email protected], Johnston, Rhode Island 02919
Super Circus, 1957 Gottlieb: 350
Project. Good cabinet & playfield. Bad backglass. Needs plastics. No back door.
[email protected], Johnston, Rhode Island 02919

That was a quick flip.....

Never bought form this person, but have gone back and forth with them on a few sales. Seems like this person gets to every steal before I can.

#18401 1 year ago
Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

Ready aim fire is worth like $200. It’s the lowest rated Gottlieb sys80a

Which is about what I think it sold for when this person bought it (or I mean I refuse to think that a really rare game went up for sale, sold, and then ANOTHER one shows up in a 60 mile radius by coincidence....)

#18403 1 year ago
Quoted from bluespin:

Sounds like the flipper in Enfield CT. He brags that he’s bought 140+ pins/arcades year to date and flips everything that he buys, sometimes the same day that he buys it.

Yeah. I will say that Brian seems to at least get a lot of finds that aren't listed. I think he's got a pretty well known reputation of "guy who buys pins" and they kind of just come his way in a lot of ways (and posts lots of "pinball wanted" ads and what not). I will say, Brian has never beat me to a deal I've wanted, but that guy in Rhode Island has.

Damn that is tempting.

#18646 1 year ago
Quoted from DropTarget:

It was 1st listed 10/19/2017.

I never really understand getting in bidding wars for peanuts and undesirable projects. Sure, you list a Seawitch at $300 and you enter a bidding war to let it go at $1,500, but for a game like Cleopatra, I just don't understand playing with people for something you really apparently need to get rid of.

#18680 1 year ago

Spy Hunter in Dillsburg PA. Listed 40 minutes ago for $450

Might be the same one that was listed a bit ago somewhere else?

Quoted from nascarrey:

Quick Draw
For sale here.....they say it works, but i dont see any lights, definitely a project...

Calling in about this one today. Thanks for the tip. Hoping to own all of the 2 player western themed Gottliebs.

#18827 1 year ago
Quoted from nascarrey:

Hope you get it and damp basement life didnt do too much damage!
Good luck!

The inside of the legs don't look rusted or corroded at all... so hoping that's a good sign.

#18938 1 year ago
Quoted from Slogan1111:

Yeah. It will need some love. Someone will scoop it up though.

If I were closer and in need of another project I would scoop that one in a heartbeat. Even in rough shape, it's rare to find one of those sub $1k these days.

Quoted from Ballypin:

You want it? I’ll go get it for you. Look at the PF first. Geesh.

Maybe I’ll take you up on that!!! Texting them now.

#19260 1 year ago

Prospector on Facebook Marketplace in Malden, MA. Person apparently just really wants it gone.


#19262 1 year ago
Quoted from bluespin:

It was listed in one ad as $400 11 hours ago. Then they relisted in a new ad for $350 an hour ago.
“Motivated seller”

The lock on the backdoor needs to be drilled. The person who showed up didn't have a drill and couldn't take the head off and therefore couldn't take it. Amateur hour if you ask me. Any time I pick up a pin from a non-pinhead, I always bring a drill. Hell, I bring my travel toolbox every time I pick up a pin.

#19265 1 year ago
Quoted from bluespin:

I also bring lock sets. That way if I have to drill out a coin door, I can replace the lock in two minutes, and I don't have to listen to the coin door swing open and shut for 350 miles like I did with my second purchase.

Packing tape does a pretty good job too haha

#19269 1 year ago
Quoted from DropTarget:

I contacted the seller 2 hours after his post. He said that he's already working with someone on the whole package. I thought about asking you to go in on it with me, but none of those games are in better condition than yours. They look pretty rough for the most part.

I offered on the whole lot but he wanted $2,700 and I passed on that. Most of those games are reaaaaally rough. I was interested in BaB, TP and Aquarius, but the rest are games that don't interest me and seems like piecing those rougher ones out at $400 a piece would be a chore.

#19293 1 year ago

Wish this was closer. This should clean up nicely. Would the S in the top left indicate a sample game?

Quoted from zacaj:

Genie in Cape Cod, $300.

Emailed. We'll see what happens here. Beast of a game to move.

Always funny to me what does and does not find itself crossposted/crosssearched in the Boston/Cape Cod/Central Mass/North Shore CLs. Find some of my best deals that way.

#19947 1 year ago
Quoted from gdonovan:

I was thinking about it but those early Gottlieb electronic noises..

Personally I love the "equal temperament arpeggio" featured Genie/Hulk and other Sys1 sound board sets. I'd take it over the boring collect sounds of Spiderman or Count Down

Good luck you dirty dogs.

Cheapish firepower project with a seemingly ok playfield. Usually that bonus area is trash. Buxton Maine

#20115 1 year ago
Quoted from PapaKilo:

"D. Gottlieb playboard simulator, driver board tester, front door simulator. Not tested but appears to be in good condition. Instruction book included. $150 OBO"

Damn now that's cool.

$300 would be generous for that!

Which is exactly what I offered him when he posted it.

Quoted from Agent_Hero:

Everyone who is hunting for cheap classic Sterns—don’t sleep on Dracula. It’s a pretty fun game.

But generally unplayable if you have relative/perfect pitch. Good thing you can turn the sound off.

#20580 11 months ago
Quoted from zacaj:

If you've got perfect pitch you can go tune the sounds

Can you seriously go in and tune each individual sound?

The issue is that the notes of the triad are designed to be musical but are out of tune from one another in an egregious way.
