    Looking for a value on a conversion game called
    Professional.
    It's a converted BOPP with a painted cab, custom backglass, decals over the plastics and playfeild.

    Currently untested.

    Probably as is, would deliver to allentown if interest.

    #5 32 days ago

    Wtf this is a real game? With the name I thought it was gonna be a Craigslist ad parody!!

    Backglass is amazing, but wtf is that weird wannabe-Seawitch layout going on??

    Thats a normal Bobby orr power play layout I'm pretty sure. It is a converted BOPP

    It’s a re-theme of Bobby Orr’s power-play

    #8 32 days ago

    BOPP go for about 1.5 - 2k US , so this i would ask around 1K US

    Oops, I feel like a total fool! I’ve never played Power Play before.

    That’s very neat, forceflow robin can we get these conversions added to the game database or is there a rule against adding conversion kits? All 5 conversion kits are listed on IPDB

    #10 32 days ago

    More pics of the backglass. Hard to photograph as there is alot of mirroring.

    Sadly , the game would be worth more if left as a BOPP. I may be interested if the price is right with leeway to convert back.

    #12 32 days ago

    I love the conversion. I’d give you $1000 all day in New England.

    I have a populated bopp playfeild that I could include with the game. It's in good shape.

    Quoted from luch:

    LOL... But it's not a BOPP. It's a crap retheme... Maybe $200 if it works, to leave room to convert back into a BOPP.
    (And personally wouldn't give more than $800 these days for a working players BOPP)

    #15 32 days ago

    guy above you just offered 1,000 , so now we know what someone will pay

    #16 32 days ago
    Quoted from Timerider:

    personally wouldn't give more than $800 these days for a working players BOPP

    So to you a BOPP is worth less then a em?

    Dont think your opinion matters then, unless you have some games you want to sell me at prices from 15 years ago.

    #17 32 days ago

    there was a story , If i remember from the ad when it was for sale , about these games being rethemed for some tournament and then given away as prizes .

    Here is a link to all the conversion kits they made. It was a company out of Toronto.

    send me a pm with some numbers and lets see if it stays in Canada

    #21 32 days ago

    A working one was on Craigslist in Kentucky about 6 months ago for $1500.

    #22 31 days ago

    Man. Tough crowd. I’d rather take this retheme over a power play any day. But I’m not a sports fan, and I think that backglass is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

    I’d rather have the retheme too. Just saying

    #24 31 days ago

    Sadly its worth more in parts then an entire game, at least in this area.

    I’m surprised to hear this. I love classic Bally games, BOPP is a great one. But I could care less about the theme. It’s an interesting piece of history and hell for $1000 I’d gladly own one. OP, if you are coming to pintastic I’ll give you $1000 if the game works 100% and you shop it out. I’m dead serious.

    #26 31 days ago

    There were 5 different kits of this
    Too bad it’s not the evil knievel one so
    It had spinners at least

    Back glass is best part
    I got one on my wall

    Ed if you really want this I can bring it back from Allentown.

    For sure. Make a offer as is. Dont really want to spend time setting it up.
    Have over 30 other projects.

    $500 as is. I might have to dump $300+ in alltek boards into it if it’s untested

    #30 31 days ago

    I see people saying retheme....

    I'm not sure that I would call a produced conversion kit and a retheme the same thing.

    Retheme is more of a home brew to me.

    Conversions have been produced/done by companies practically since pinball has been around (good and bad).

    That’s a good point. I did say re-theme of Bobby Orr’s power-play earlier but it is most certainly a conversion kit and not everything. I would definitely leave it as is. I’ve seen a lot of Bobby Orr but you don’t see this one often.

    Wasn't picking on you specifically

    It was more an insignificant thought in my head.

    I agree, I think it would be cool to keep it together and just fix it up mechanically. Not a lot of conversions seem to stick around. If it's a fun player as BOPP, then it should still be a fun player like this!

    Besides! When I look at the backglass I can affirm that the Pro Pinball Player is ME!!

    #34 31 days ago

    Conversion kits are weird and cool and a real part of the history of arcades and (to a somewhat lesser extent) pinball. It would be a shame to turn this back into a Bobby Orr unless those games were really rare, which they’re not.

    I’ll give ya $1010. Sorry Ed.

    What's it worth??? .... thousands!!!

    Well, only if you have the backglass I found. The girls in my glass think the Pro Pinball Player is super attractive!

    Good luck, Mitch!

    I want that space duel backglass. Anyone know if it was ever made?

    #39 29 days ago

    Never seen a space dual. I'm assuming the company went under before it was made.

    Quoted from Mitch:

    Atari also had an arcade game called Space Duel that was on its way out at this time so maybe that was a factor as well.

    Love the "L" brackets holding together the cabinet. Priceless!! or should I say Professional!!
