    Post the worst case of pinball wear you personally or a friend has dealt with. I will pikc the best one and the winner will get a free Pinball grab bag full of good stuff, $50-$75 value.

    I am still trying to dig my pic up, It was a cactus canyon that was pure wood all through the center of the playfield.

    My first pinball. I dont want to tell you what I paid! I also included a picture of what a Skateball SHOULD look like with paint on it. Note: the last pic is not mine. IMAG0133.jpg IMAG0443.jpg // Error: Image 57965 not found // Skateball_2.JPG

    Here is a High Speed that I re-did a while ago. The playfield was sent to CPR as a donor.

    #20 6 years ago

    Man, this thread is depressing.

    #21 6 years ago

    Lol, I came in to post pics of my f-14 playfield, but I can't beat that high speed.

    Quoted from kwiKimart:

    Man, this thread is depressing.

    I don't know, I look at warn playfields and see all the fun people had playing them. There is a pretty good reason why Middle Earth playfields are always mint.

    Id be interested in details on how you did that. Got two that need that kind of work done.

    #34 6 years ago

    How the heck does this happen? People put puck bowler sand on the playfield?

    #35 6 years ago
    Quoted from Whridlsoncestood:

    I've got a lot of work to do to fix that Wolf!

    Oh yeah. I'm sure I'll uncover some really great stuff when I start pulling the parts off the playfield.

    But, I bet it will demand a premium price when you are done with it.

    #45 6 years ago

    Some of these are blatantly sanded or are destroyed by something other than the pinball.

    This one had a nice bandaid covering the kick out lol. I still was able to sell it though IMG_20121208_084923.jpg

    I had never seen a playfield that bad. The damage is eye popping. I picked up the complete game three months ago from a former op just outside of Montreal.

    The field came out of a still working game (although just hanging on by a thread) that had been in a dive bar for a good long time. The op said the game was still taking quarters when they pulled it. The cab was split in half and braced together with some metal brackets.

    I have a new CPR playfield and will be doing a swap on it but it's going to be a real horror show. For public safety I won't show the backside of this thing.

    I have my work cut out for me on this one!!!

    #47 6 years ago

    my Amazing spiderman looks like a gem compared to these.. WOW!!

    #48 6 years ago

    The worst playfield wear I've ever had to deal with by far was on this Bally Spyhunter game. The game had obviously been "wet" at some point, although I don't think it was flooded. The top layer of the plywood had delaminated the entire length of the playfield, and although the artwork itself wasn't toast, the playfield was unusable. It wasn't even a candidate for touch up or a rescreen because of the extensive damage. (yeah, like they'd ever do a repro of this one!) Try to find a good used Spyhunter playfield. Eventually one did show up, and the end result turned out to be a pretty nice game. Definitely better than I had expected. New owner seems to be very happy with it as well.

    Here's some video of the after:
