Was offered a 1972 Ball Space Time with a woodgrain cabinet. After looking at the pics, I assumed someone put contact paper on it. Turns out it is OE. From IPBD:

Pictured here is a game from Sweden with serial number 5438 that has wood grain lamination on its backbox and lower cabinet that looks factory-installed. Factory serial number plates are evident. We do not know the reason for this cabinet version but have been told that Sweden has a number of Bally games that are this way, known there as "cafe games", as well as having the same games with the regular Bally cabinet artwork.

Game works, needs shopped. Decent BG and PF. Seller has had for 40 years. Worth less than a stenciled version?

I really like the look of it but have no idea if it would hold more or less value than say the normal painted version.
I think the value on this would be in the hands of the buyer. Maybe to someone it's worth triple the normal asking price.

I don’t think it really adds to the value. I think if you price it above what a normal cabinet version sells for, you’ll have it a long time.

Looks like wall paneling board to me.

Quoted from tomdrum:

Probably. The nostalgia factor probably doesn't come into play with that cabinet. And it just looks...odd.

I would probably value it the same as a situation where someone repainted the cabinet white or black or something.

But who knows, maybe there's someone out there who really wants this specific example.

It looks pretty neat!
