Apple at $16.
I seldom pass on arcade/pinball stuff. I usually miss out on it. Hesitate for a day and it's usually gone. I get more sentimental about games I missed out on than girls I missed out on
A fully restored EBD for around $4500 i think when our dollar was parity with yours. Full nickel plating on everything.Sold by Pinball Clinic. I still keep the pictures. One over the top resto.
And about 30 others but that's the one I remember most. If it was you and you want to sell PM me lol
I like hearing about all the deals before pinball blew up like it has in the last 4 years but no one could of predicted the future or everyone wld have bought to resell. I like hearing about the deals passed on in recent years and why? Myself well ive only been in the hobby a year and a half and pretty much bought any decent deal ive come across lol but did pass on 1k nice baywatch,1100 lah, 1200 jm , 1300 sg and some others but ive also gotten some killer deals on projects that made up for it and im really happy with my current collection and don't have regrets. O yea maybe the 1600 wcs because I really want one and now they are mid 2ks
Since I started collecting in 1988 I've pretty much never passed on a good deal, hence why I have way too many games, but I do regret not getting in on BBB when Gene revealed it at Expo in 2004.
Before 1988 I was offered a Non-Working Haunted House for a couple of hundred bucks, looks awfully good in retrospect!!
Not sure if best deal, but super rare. Lochness monster, Capcom kingpin. They were well beyond what I was comfortable paying, thought long and hard.
Quoted from pinball4ever:
I passed on a Joust maybe 12 years ago because I had no easy way to get it out (of a basement).
Now I can move just about anything, but of course can't find a Joust for twice that price.
not trying to make you feel bad, but the playfield cabinet portion detaches from the base with 4 lag bolts. another two lag bolts hold the each of the legs onto the base.
that's how I got one into my '99 mountaineer about 14 years ago
A Spirit of '76 and a Pat Hand together for $200. I let my wife talk me out of that deal, and I still bitterly regret it.
