What the hell are these things going for these days? Players? Above average? Diamond plated?

And please, no price plumpers.

You should get a Taxi instead.

Already did that.

2k is the usual price.

#5 5 months ago

Somewhere between 2 to 3 per condition.

As someone who is also actively searching like the op, I think 2k is low end these days. I see them at 2300-2500 in just average players condition with decent playfields. Nicer ones are up there 2700-2800. Mark Ritchie is one of my favorites and diner is a classic to me

I have two leads: decent player for 2750 and a dp one for 3800.

I think both are way high but that’s why I’m asking.

They have definitely gone up. The diamond plated ones are hard to find. I’ve not really seen one for sale close to me so I’m not very familiar with the market on them at all. Pinside average is $2800 now.

That’s about what I was thinking for a dp.

I’ve seen dp ww go
For 3200 and that’s a better game

#11 5 months ago

I paid $3300 for a nice DP Diner with yellow habitrail at Allentown this year on a pre-sale.

Diner has always been a top tier system 11 game price wise, the theme just works perfectly with most basement bars / arcades.

Seems like a $2500-4000 game these days to me just like most everything else from late 80s-90s.

The only sys 11'S I'd spend 4K on are Transporter and Radical

#14 5 months ago

Agree, wouldn’t pay 4K+ for most syst11.
Op, you say no price “plumpers” - inspect all including DP between 2500-3k and be really wary beyond that.

#15 5 months ago

After reading this thread I can understand a bit why I've had interest in people soliciting me about buying mine.

#16 5 months ago

Theme is great, but game play not that good.

Agreed. Art is cool, but Taxi is much better player.

#18 5 months ago

Going to buying a non-DP one in Pittsburgh later this week for $2950.

2 weeks later

Mine is non Dp, in nice but not huo, I had searched for 3 yrs for one with minor issues that I could save a few bucks, I bought off eBay in 2014 , travelled to Myrtle Beach and removed from a cramped second floor apartment with no elevator lol, I think I paid around 1300 plus travel, if I had missed that deal is still be searching, this pin and theme are well thought of and the price for a system 11 game reflects, good luck, I'll never sell mine

#20 4 months ago

I’ve seen two come up for sale in the last 4-5 months around here and each was around the $2500 mark and sat for several weeks before selling. Both were playing but had some PF wear, the usual.

#21 4 months ago

I paid $2,100 for my Diner a year ago. Minimal pf wear, nice cab. Not a DP but does have the prototype yellow habitrail but i think maybe it was powder coated.

I have a nice restored Diner and no one has asked to buy mine! Oh wait, I live in Alaska...

I’m 7 1/2 hours from Myrtle beach so I guess it depends on where in KY.
