Quoted from ZNET:

If anyone is interested in viewing photos of the games formerly in my collection, and now for sale (link at post 15955 by Pecos above, Atlanta auction posted on Craigslist), feel free to send me a private message. Here's the list of those games:
*1963 Midway Race Way (exceptional all-original example of this title, see above)
*1963 Midway Slugger (fairly scarce, under-the-radar, super fun pitch & bat)
*1960 Williams Official Baseball (professional artist hand-painted, highly detailed playfield mannequins, very nice original example)
*1965 Gottlieb Bank-A-Ball (very nice example)
*1965 Gottlieb Buckaroo (very nice playfield, good original backglass, average cabinet)
*1967 Gottlieb King of Diamonds (repainted cabinet)
*1933 Bally The Pennant (very nice, original example)
I sold these games several years ago to a collector who has a microcar and pinball museum in Atlanta. However, from the limited photos, the condition of the games appear to be quite similar to when they were purchased from me. Here are a few photos of some of the games, when they were in my line-up:

bruce did the same person purchase all of your games? funny they all ended up in a auction.
they look like they were really nice machines.

Yes Dave, plus several others, because he liked the first group he acquired from my collection. The machines and microcars, plus other collectible items in this auction are from a singular collection. The seller has the largest microcar collection in the world.

surprising a guy that had these would put them in a auction, it is always a gamble on who shows up to bid. then again if the right people show up they can run the price up. they are really nice so i am sure even with auction fees he will still make out.

For this particular seller, convenience is far more important than the revenue generated by the auction. I suspect that Pinside and Mr. Pinball ads for these games would have yielded much higher sales prices.

Always loved all the details and inside jokes on Raceway's background. Someone is going to be happy with that purchase!

#16006 3 months ago

Pinwiztom and pinballprowess stopped by this afternoon and gave most of my games a pretty good workout. Proud to say no malfunctions seemed to manifest themselves on any of them.

Thank you Brian for your hospitality.
I 've been looking forward to SEEING AND PLAYING your collection for quite some time
and was not disappointed.
Very nice looking games for the most part and all played very well.
Liked Pinky a lot for a 1950 impulse flipper pin.
And came away with a slightly better appreciation of GTB Fashion Show
as a "more fun to compete" type of game.
Was sorry that the '63 WMS Big Deal was still in process of being refurbished, maybe next time.
cheers Tom

At the liveauctioneers auction on Saturday, the Midway Slugger pitch and bat sold for $1,815. That game was in poor condition when I acquired it. However, I rate it as an overall solid 7, upon completion of the restoration. I don't think that the seller modified that game after buying it from me years ago. Slugger is a fun and unusual game, which features hybrid pinball and pitch & bat action, with slingshots as well as add-a-ball rewards, 2 ramps, 2 gobble holes, and variable value target scoring.

Too bad

Quoted from o-din:

I recall reading that Wayne Neyens identified his favorite designed game as Queen of Hearts. Queen of Hearts is among my favorite woodrails as well. I love the roll-unders.

Needless to say, the success of Queen of Hearts led to Poker-Face's very similar design, save for the latter's extra gobble hole and drain saver. However, there are a few very good games which I don't want in my line-up and Poker-Face is one of them. Poker-Face, like Minstrel Man, may possess a valuable teaching moment about historical oppression and stereotypes. Nevertheless, I can't have fun playing those games, as a player and as a collector, when I'm reminded of that needless oppression in the not-too-distant past. Perhaps I would feel differently if the hobby itself was more racially diverse.

Surf Champ in GA. I really want a Surfer but a Surf Champ would be okay too. $1500.... I'll wait for a bit more of a project Surfer.

So how do you feel about Gottlieb's "Square Head"?

or any of the objectified women on most every pinball BG and PF
since the beginning of time?

#16032 3 months ago

I am part native American and am not offended by Pokerface or any of the other injun themed woodrails of that time period. It would go nicely along side my Frontiersman and Arrowhead. I wouldn't mind adding a Smoke Signal to the lineup someday either.

I don't think I've ever seen a "Smoke Signal". Looks like a cool game.

#16034 3 months ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Yes it does. With a nice layout and lots of features. Great art too. You can earn a replay by all five balls going in the gobble hole. Sounds easier than it probably is. I've been on the lookout for one for some time.

O-din, It is axiomatic that none of us speak for any minority group, even if we happen to be a member of that oppressed group. (I too am a member of a minority group.) That is why I specifically expressed my opinion in the context of MY gameroom. I do not begrudge anyone who is able to enjoy Minstrel Man or Poker-Face in their home line-up. I just don't want either of those titles in my home. Neither your preference nor mine is better or worse. On an unrelated note, Smoke Signal's playfield reminds me of Williams Army Navy (the first score reel game, as I recall).

JRPinball, There are dozens of other Pinside threads addressing the objectification of women in the hobby so there's no point in recreating that wheel here. In my experience, women are beginning to enter the hobby in increasing numbers. Certainly, WOZ helped to some extent in that regard. I do not think that the same can be said for racial diversity, however. Anyone who has attended a pinball expo anywhere in the USA, in the last two decades, will note the homogeneous attendance.

Ok, but I'm still wondering if you find Gottlieb's "Square Head" to be offensive; at least as offensive, as the other two games you named?

#16040 3 months ago

I am a full blooded "kraut" and i am not offended by squarehead,
even though its original intent (the term) was to diminish or offend.
I can see where minstrel man may tend to go over the line in today's society.
Not really offended by depiction of hillbillies (in lots of Parker BGs)
or palefaces donning indian headdress on pinball artwork packages
or the depiction of a page cut boy with traditional dress in clogs for Dutch Boy paint
or William Penn on Quaker Oats.
nor the depection of skinny pointy people and the fat guy on the Backglass on WMS Gulfstream.
But that is me, i tend to let things roll off my back and let it go.
My wife may not be thrilled with the general depiction of women on pinball artwork packages
emphasizing boobs and cleavage and micro waists, yet Elvira and Scared Stiff are her two favorite machines.

I'm basically a mutt with parts from all over the world. I'm sure like many others.

The way I see it, there are enough offensive and inconsiderate people living in the world today to let the intentions of a colorful pinball backglass from 60 years ago bother me now. But again, that's just me

No, it was mid afternoon on a Saturday and even I hadn't hit the hard stuff yet. Tom is a serious player who doesn't seem to get distracted. All these older guys come to my house and show me up on my own games!

It's all good. I need all the practice I can get for the money games I play with the usual crew.

I think that it’s folly to rank ethnic slurs in terms of an "offensive meter." Consequently, I will merely observe that Americans of Scandinavian and Germanic descent have been generally embraced since their wave of immigration whereas other ethnic groups have not.

Quoted from ZNET:

Just wondering if you would object to having that game in your home for the same reasons as the others you've named. That's all.
I don't mean to be a pest, but I really didn't know that "Square Head" was an ethnic slur until fairly recently. That they made a game with a specific ethnic slur as it's title seems to me to be far more insulting than depicting American Indians in a comedic manner on a pinball game. Personally, I don't find it offensive, but others might. Whether a group has been "generally embraced" or not really isn't relevant, because what's offensive to one member of any group, may not be to others.
What's offensive to me is the double standard that seems to exist when it comes to matters such as these. "Hogan's Heroes" is still shown regularly in syndication, but "Dukes of Hazzard" is not. I guess it all depends on who's ox is getting gored. Over and out.
