I'm picking up a Simpsons Pinball Party on the way home from work today. Got a nice deal and just going to quickly re-sell since I don't have the space and the profit will go towards my family's Disney World vacation next month.

Haven't seen it yet, only one fuzzy photo, but spoke to the woman selling it and it works and she said is clean and looks nice. So assume this is a 7/10, what's the market value?

Already have a few interested parties lined up. Looking to price fair, not needing to squeeze every potential dollar from the sale, but don't want to leave hundreds on the table either.

Thanks.

If you're not going to give it a full shop out job e.t.c. and simply turn around and profit, then I would say ~3500 for something needing some TLC

You might get $3500. Prices are falling quickly.

I agree, 3500 is prolly what it is.

I sold it for $3000 last night to my friend's friend. My buddy was coming with me to help pick it up and his friend made the offer, which I accepted not even knowing the potential value. Just was happy to turn such a fast profit and I'm glad he got a nice pin for a good deal (based on the $3500 quoted here).

Just posted about the deal in the main forum if anyone is interested.

3000 for a average TSPP to a friend is a good deal for your friend! You may have just created another pinball addict! we like to see good deals happen, good job!

Funny, got a lot of haters saying that I should have sold it to me friend's buddy for the same price I bought it for.

Cause that makes perfect sense here in the real world.

I wouldn't do that when buying and selling a used car, tractor or go kart, which is what I do occasionally.....but some collectors seem to have skewed views when selling pins.

Yea, these are going for $8500 now, curious as to how much you bought it for and how did you come across it?

It was listed on craigslist and I guess I was the first one to reply from what I recall. I got it cheap for I think $2000.

I remember some guys on here giving me a hard time that I shouldn’t have sold it to fund my families trip to Disney World lol.

I’d rather my family have memories of a great vacation than a pinball machine. I remember that was an unpopular opinion.
