I have an opportunity to grab 3 mint condition System 11's from a private collector, they look amazing and the only issue is the price. He has a Whirlwind, Earthshaker and Diner. Let me know what you guy's think are fair prices for each game. I didn't take pics but trust me they are mint, the only issue at all is on the Whirlwind and its very minor cabinet wear that has been painted well to match original status. Thanks

Mint?

Those games are worth at least $2500 each.

Wow for mint, that's tough, plus those are all desirable titles. I am unsure of Canadian prices as well. Taking a stab at it, assuming they also work 100%

Whirlwind: $3,500+
earthshaker: $3,200+
Diner: $3,000+

I am sure others will chime in as well.

I am also using prices in my area as a reference, bay area CA prices tend to be higher, but from what I have seen that's kinda the same for Canada.

I was thinking same as above in between 3000.00 and 3500.00

We talking cleared or diamond plated playfields, perfect plastics, perfect cabinets here? Without a cleared playfield and perfect shape I'd find $3k + a little tough for these titles. If all original just very nice, I'd think more $2100-2300 each. $3k+ and these things would need cleared playfields, all repro plastics, perfect cabs, perfect ramps, basically no wear.

I agree with this. The prices seem high. Honestly it is VERY hard to judge without pictures. One person's idea of mint = other person's idea of trashed.

You are pretty well right on with what he's asking within a $1000.

Yep, easy. I am thinking 28-29 each

I've been collecting for a while now and gone through many machines so I have a good grasp of mint, here's a couple pics of the Diner I just had him send me.

Nevermind, subtract $250 from what I previously said due to all of those colored LEDS.

#11 6 years ago

Pics without the LEDs on would be better to see what it really looks like.

#12 6 years ago

I would redo all the lights so don't care what's in them now. In Canada you really are looking at $500 above what they would worth in the States. Anyway thanks for the advice.

#13 6 years ago

Based on your description, I'd say $8000USD for all 3. So, maybe $9500CD?

Yeah, and purple on this game? Not sure what the guy was thinking when he did that. It just doesn't look right at all. Only my opinion, of course.

Diner=2800…Earthshaker=2900…WW=3000.I sold a mint Diamond-plated Diner for 2000(in 1992) Three great games for sure.

#16 6 years ago

I think WW would have to be pristine/collector quality *and* HUO (highly unlikely) to go at $3K. I believe there was someone here recently that sold a pretty decent one for $2K just in the last couple of months.

I agree with these and not the lower estimates.

#18 6 years ago

That's a routed machine. Good looking machine though.

#19 6 years ago

With The_Director on this. Diner will likely have raised inserts even under mylar and the others might as well. For $3K they should have cleared playfields, etc. 7500 would be good range for all three.

Two Lawlors and a Ritchie (M) , all three great pins though. System 11 heaven.

#20 6 years ago

Yeah, when I estimated those high prices, that's for mint. Perfect playfield with no raised inserts, mint to me means in perfect original condition, looking like it came out of the box.

"The_Director" is a pinsider who wrote the following:

For the record, I agree with him in principal. I believe that each one would find a buyer if listed for $2,600-$2,800. Pricing them at $3K+ will simply limit the market to those that truly value the title. They could sell, but it may take a while to find the buyer who will pay that price.

Hope you are able to work a deal and get at least one of them. All three are excellent games!

Thanks Marcus

and someone please tell the seller of these fine games to stop letting cotton candy cum on the lights on diner.

#25 6 years ago

I wouldn't pay more than $6k for the lot. Maybe that's just me, but this is a package deal so you'd expect some sort of discount for grabbing all 3 at once.
