Do answer a few questions...paid right at 5k for the lot. Working on getting more pictures, these are from the seller!!!!, and starting a Facebook page. There's still over 70 machines( EMs and SS, and I don't do SS) available at this location. Scouting another location with 30 plus EMs, mostly 60s add a balls. Jumping back into hobby with both feet lol

Good titles.

Wouldn't happen to be any Bingos in the bunch is there?

A steal at <$300 per pin
and on average look to be in decent enough shape to restore,
though have not seen most of the lower playfields
but BGs look OK for the era.
One could probably flip them, as is, easily, for double.

That's what I was thinking, picking them up all at once is a great saving.

#12 4 months ago

only drawback is
if one needs to find storage to house them all until restored or sold.
hopefully you have significant and free or low cost storage.

#13 4 months ago

Too many to list, but here's a sampling: Captain Fantastic..King of Diamonds...Diamond Jack..Silverball Mania...Haunted House...Nitro Groundshaker..Tommy...Xenon..Hayride...mini-zag... and many more.

Send the Zipper flippers my way!!!

#15 4 months ago

We all know the key is shipping, storage, and the right cost. Picking up myself is gonna run about a grand, decent price, and I have heated free storage. Just wish I had a bigger trailer lol

Congrats on the pickup! Lots of fun work ahead. I may be in the minority here but I've always liked the backglass for Skill Pool. I guess the wood paneling exposure in my youth effected my artistic judgement of beauty.
