    I’ve been diagnosed with an aggressive type of endocrine cancer that I don’t fully understand. What I do know is that I have the fight of my life in front of me and hope very much to live long enough to buy back a new and better collection.

    Still, I’ve lived very well, and have spendthrift money on luxuries as though there are many tomorrows left. At this point, it appears we might need to sell the house, or move my parents in with us to help care for me.

    While appropriate discounts will be afforded multiple-game purchases, lowball offers are discouraged.

    Most Pinsiders know me and my collection. Photos are available to folks who don’t. The pins are generously modded and blinged out. They are:

    LZLE w/Stern topper
    $10k REDUCED again

    DILE
    $8k

    Reasonable offers appreciated, with the understanding that we all know where the market is right now. Thank you very much for those who have been part of my life in this hobby for years and years.

    A few games in your home might still cheer you up and help you through some difficult days... something to consider before you liquidate everything.

    Reasonable offers appreciate it, with the understanding that we all know where the market is right now. Thank you very much for those who have been part of my life in this hobby for years and years.

    I’ve watched your collection from afar and love your updates and pickups. In a weird way I feel like I know you, living vicariously when you got grails like BBB and Alien.

    I wish you the best of luck. Sending positivity and support your way.

    Perhaps too dark but I find gallows humor the best way to deal when life kicks you in the teeth.
    Should things go south, I will be holding you to this!

    Quoted from pinlawyer:

    I still have PM and Airborne. When I die, my family's instructions are to saw me in half and bury half in each pin. PM is simply my favorite pinball ever. Airborne is in my top 10.

    #45 2 years ago

    Prayers sent. You got this, and I look forward to seeing your continued posts as you recover.

    #48 2 years ago

    Best wishes. Stupid cancer...

    #49 2 years ago

    So sorry to hear Greg. My wife and I had the honor of playing a tournament in your basement. As you have indicated, your pins are always in amazing condition. I wish you the best with the treatment. Stay positive!
