Pecos et al,

Fun thread - been watching for some time and now have one to share. I've got nothing to do with the machine or the sale but capitolonlineauctions has a NASCAR project in an auction that closes today at 1:00 PM eastern:

http://www.capitolonlineauctions.com/cgi-bin/mnlist.cgi?capitol58/7533

At time of posting the high bid is $875. Machine is in Maryland; apparently winner must pick up tomorrow (which is why I didn't bid).

There's a project-quality Firepower in Virginia Beach on eBay, but the price is not in the project category - $900. ebay.com link » Firepower Pinball .

Says the poster: "It worked years ago and played it all the time. Since I've gone in garage last time I tried to turn it on and didn't start up like normal. "

I guess this counts as a project since the poster says something like "ball eject no longer works". I would go look at except I'm already 2 above what the wife will allow!

Here's one elsewhere on Pinside - in the TPF for sale thread:

Quoted from digit:

I have a Gottlieb 1961 Lancers project that I could bring down to TPF. I will only bring it if I get a commitment to buy ahead of time. I will be bringing one home and only room for one in truck. Hit me up for more info or pics.

Firepower on eBay in Texas:

ebay.com link » Firepower Pinball Machine Williams 1980 Feel The Power

Look closely at the main picture - there is a person standing behind the machine... you can only see their shoe but I'm pretty sure they are holding the backbox in place. Look on the right side where the backbox meets the cabinet - the wood is not attached properly. Writeup mentions not having key for backbox.

High bid was $42 as I typed this, but almost 6 days left on the auction.

Quoted from Captive_Ball:

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

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:

Bidder Bid Amount Bid Time
c***a ( 257) US $830.00 May-28-16 17:55:28 PDT

h***g ( 7 ) US $600.00 May-27-16 19:44:53 PDT

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?

Here's one for the thread: I just got an empty Bally EM cabinet from a city dumpster. PM me if you want it for free... I also posted on DC area CL, but would be most pleased if someone who monitors this thread could put it to use (or maybe even just use some of the remaining metal on it). I don't even know what game it's from but whatever - you can't beat the price!

I'll never get near 300 (maybe not even near 30) finds, but here's a Dancing Dolls that posted on CL in Frederick, MD last night. Games sell fast in this area and... I'm out of space.

Quoted from Pecos:

I have to admit that tears of joy are welling up in my eyes as I write this. I am completely overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and generosity of you Ryan, ZNET and all of the other Project Pinsters who frequent this thread.
As it so happens, I just began moving the first of my pins tonight in a rearrangement of Pecos' Palatial Pinball Parlour. The Queen of Hearts will go next to the Bally Double-Up and the Atari Airborne Avenger. With any luck, I will soon have some pictures to show you.
I will have more to say when my state of pleasant shock, surprise and joy have lessened sufficiently for my brain to begin working again!
All I can say now is Thank You all so much, not only those who contributed to this wonderful gift but also for all of you who participate in this thread. It is indeed an honor and a privilege to know you all!
I will be thinking of each of you each time I look at this beautiful backglass on a soon-to-be fully restored, Gottlieb 1952 Queen of Hearts woodrail Project Pin!

... Even with "brain not working normally from joy" a class act all the way! I do a lot more reading than writing on Pinside and I've noticed the threads I follow most typically have a terrific person (or persons) behind them... rotordave and his travel threads (new one active right now!). pinballrockstar and his Pinball Amigos threads (Crazy Mansion is a blast). Several of the show threads, but certainly labnip with TPF (quiet lately). And, I keep up on this thread pretty much daily even though I'm not actively in the market for games - it may be my most visited thread (obviously I monitor my threads where I introduce products closely as well).

So back about 50 pages ago the deal I couldn't pass up showed up in this thread... https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/post-project-pins-for-sale-here-cl-ebay-pinside-and-others/page/105#post-3790745 . It's still not 100% but it's now a very playable game with a Max2K clear coated PF. And, (spoiler alert...) in the near future I'll be releasing a new product directly related to owning and working on that machine that I think will be applicable to a few other games from that era.

About a month ago I went to an estate sale just a few miles from my office to check out a game - I never would have known about the sale or the game without this thread and the volunteer army led by pecos that somehow seems to constantly keep it current. I've posted a few leads, but it's rare that I see something before this army.

I've shared links from this thread with my siblings (Texas and North Carolina) encouraging them to jump into the hobby with a project game. No triggers pulled on those opportunities, but Texas seems to be gaining interest!

So, Merry Christmas from all of us, pecos, everyone who reads/monitors this thread. And thunderous applause for ryanclaytor for being our collective arms, legs, and brains on this one!

Here's a Bally Mr. and Mrs. Pacman: easternshore.craigslist.org link

I've talked to the guy because the listing is 1 hour from here - learned the machine is in Rehobath Beach, DE; not in Centerville. He is returning voice-messages, so leave him one if you are interested in the machine. He answered my return call directly when I called around 10:30 AM Eastern. Ad has been there for about a week already so I don't think it's being bid up but we didn't talk price. He did tell me the machine is 100% complete.

#7430 1 year ago
Quoted from tbird71:

I used to buy and export motorcycles for a living. What's worse than that happening is when you make a deal to buy one (bike, pinball, whatever) drive 200+ miles with a truck and trailer and show up about the same time as another buyer. (yep, the seller got 2 or more coming and showing up at the exact same time) Then you have an auction. The other buyer that showed up at the same time offered $500 more than the price we'd already agreed on, and bought the bike. Sellers comments were "hope you understand".
Nothing surprises me anymore

That's one of the big reasons I passed on buying the Mr & Mrs Pacman I recently posted. It would have stunk to go 3 hours for a $600 game just to find out somebody just grabbed it or just offered a few hundred more or whatever. I got a really good vibe talking to that seller so the risk seemed low but that had a lot to do with passing. I've got the space for a machine and I had reluctant approval from the wife.

OP: "Selling off a bunch of project pin ball machines that I'll never get around to doing anything with. My loss is your gain. I've been in the pinball hobby for the last 21 years and I know my way around the games pretty good so if you have any questions let me know. Consider these non working or tested unless noted. They are all projects to varying degrees and each one will need to be cleaned and new rubbers/bulbs etc... and possibly some board work. All come complete with legs and even sometimes the manuals to go with them if I have it. Only the games in this listing are available, regardless of what other ones you see in the pictures.
Airport--$200
Old Chicago--$500, a real project and not for the light hearted.
Playboy 35th--$600 also have a brand new Rottendog CPU board for another $300, game is mostly shopped out....
Gun Club, 1941 Genco--$400
Eight Ball Champ, working with a couple of minor issues--$1000
Circus, Bally--$300
Liberty Bell--$400
Hang Glider--$250 and I have another playfield for this game for an extra $100
Showboat--$400
Space Odyssey--$400
Aquarius--$325, pictures show it somewhat incomplete but I have everything
Pot O' Gold--$250
Pacman/Galaga upright video game, 20th Anniversary home edition also not working--$300
Medieval Madness--$800, cabinet and translight etc...but no boards or playfield.
Jungle Lord cabinet and backglass only--$150
Ted Nugent head--$40 with no boards or backglass."

Quoted from cottonm4:

Any estate sale I have been to usually starts out at a high price on day 1. On day 2 the price decreases---sometimes by half. On Day 3 the prices get reduced again. And some times you can make an offer on Day 1 and get a deal. And sometimes you can make an offer and leave your phone number and will get a call to bring your money. True, the estate seller might use your offer to play off of, but all of this is like getting a date. You won't know until you ask.

It is sort of like an auction in reverse.

These estate sellers don't want to be dragging this stuff home. They have a deadline.

If I wanted this pin and the drive was not too far, I would chance it.

Pretty much exactly how I got my Mata Hari for $60 about 8 years ago. When I went back with the cash to pick it up they let me take some other crap for free - including an antique oscilloscope. They said what remained was going into a dumpster the next day... that could have been the fate of the MH had I not gone back when they called.

Took some time to get it going but now my MH is very nice - CPR PF, very nice BG, and plays well.

I hope it finds a good home. It's only 30 min from my place but it wouldn't go over well if I tried to acquire this...

Quoted from ForceFlow:

I don't bother with estate sales unless they are close by. Too many unknowns, too much competition, and too much variance of the rules between different sellers.

With a ton of patience I've had what I feel is good success at estate sales. Mata Hari for $60 (10 years ago), Alien Poker for $200 (Spring 2018, thanks again, bluespin ) and Flash for $150 (Fall 2018, and bluespin again). All were negotiated and, except for flash, were re-visits after "here's my price and contact info" conversations. I've also seen what others have referenced - people lining up to pay way too much for some titles. I never go to tire-kick; only if there's a real chance I would actually fight the "bring it in the door" challenge when I got home.

Rob I say go for it! Your wife won’t kill you for bringing home one more pin...but if she does I call dibs on Mata Hari

Last week I actually threw around the idea of getting this car (washingtondc.craigslist.org link) as a beater pin hauler. That idea wasn't warmly received, but it would be good for things like this - putting that slick chick "mousery" in my wife's SUV would be a non-starter. Agree with cottonm4 - great set of pics for a free game!

I say somebody coming up 95 should pick it up on their way to Allentown.

Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

I would love this project! Anyone coming out Dallas way anytime soon that could bring it to me

Didn't Dave Lancaster have a project Playboy for about 1/3 that price (under $600) at Allentown? His booth was right next to me but I never looked to see how complete it might be. I'm pretty confident it didn't sell at the show - he had it in the back facing the folks who were lined up for Wonka. The cabinet looked nicely refinished, there was a playfield in it; I don't think the backbox had a glass and I don't know about boards, displays, or legs. I also don't know how to contact him but somebody here might.

Of course you would still need to solve the transport problem...

Quoted from cottonm4:

I have some questions:

Of all of these project pins that have been moving around the country, how many have been put back together and are now up and running?

How many have just changed hands and are sitting folded up in a different corner in a different house? Rephrasing the question: How many of these project pins are in pinball purgatory and just living in different houses as they get passed around from basement to basement or garage to garage.

How many will we see ads for that say," I'm selling this pin. I have too many projects right now."

I have a pin folded up in a corner of my house. It will be at least 2 years before I can get to it. And I could decide sell it as a project in the meantime.

I'm not knocking this thread. I'm just curious of how large pinball purgatory might be.

I've picked up three because of this thread:

Bally Monte Carlo - 100% working and in my gameroom's lineup.

Alien Poker - 90% working and set up for play in my shop room. Will cross the last 10% after the reproduction PF arrives from Europe later this summer

Flash - Had it at 100% and I made a custom playfield protector for it, but it has taken to blowing a fuse so it needs more attention. It is in my shop room with the backglass and PF glass out right now.

Quoted from canoncitypb:

I don't know what hurts me more, seeing games in that condition or knowing that if it was close to me I would actually pay money to salvage some of those parts.

I'm almost with you. It's ~90 minutes from me and I've got nothing pressing to do today (except a couple daughterboard shipments and maybe make some more). But, to what end - to clean parts and sell to others? to hold "in case" I need them in future projects? for a stack of spares for my collection? Maybe it's just for the pride of salvaging something from what looks like nothing.

Quoted from too-many-pins:

I was going to bid on both but I already have plenty of parts machines around. Both buyers got a hell of a deal because seller got back to me and said they have lock bars for both machines. Sadly I got that message after auctions ended or I would have been tempted to make the drive. The Gottlieb lock bar is worth close to $100 all by itself and the Bally is worth at least $50

Perhaps they are worth more in pieces than complete but I'm personally hoping they get revived rather than parted.

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

As he mentioned, I was mistaken on my max bid and only got the Ro Go but $10 isn’t bad
