I've got a friend looking to sell a gridiron (pitch and bat style), target alpha and a Chicago coin pistol game. I've included some bad pictures of each.image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

They look to be in great shape (restored)... Having observed that, they probably want top $ for them.

From my experience, Pinside is not really the best market to try and sell mint condition EM pins and gun games. If your friend does not want top $ for them, I could see them getting some offers. Good luck with the sale.

I don't know? They don't look like they are necessarily "restored" to me. Maybe the gun game but the pinball machine doesn't look like it. They all look like they might just be originals in very good shape. What does the seller claim they are?

The pitch & bat game definitely looks restored. The EM and shooting gallery look like nice originals, although the backglass is flaking on the shooting gallery.

Yeah you can tell there has been some polishing done to the pitch & bat trim. The gun game looks original but it may have some fresher varnish applied at some time. It's hard to tell but the pinball machine looks unmolested.

They are all nice-looking. I'd allow them into my gameroom!

Is it just me or do the players heads on Gridiron look like the Canadians on Southpark when looked at quickly!! Lol.

I don't think gridiron normally sells for much, especially to a pinball person. If you think about it, the whole concept is kind of odd. It's a pitch and bat for football. Pitch and bats have nothing to do with football.

Target Alpha is probably in the $700 or so range depending on overall condition and location.

The gun game I have no idea.

Gridiron has been restored but as far as I know the other two are original. Thanks for all the comments.

I believe I saw a project Gridiron sell for $250ish at a show earlier this year. It took half a day to sell. I'm guessing a nice fully working one is a sub-$1k game. Target Alpha is a little shy of a grand as well.

Egyptyrus's assessment was bang on, imho
