Hello there!

My name is Stephen Prusa, and I have been restoring games for a few years now, as well as an active competitive pin player.
I have came across a wheelchair accessible Sega Space Jam, which is currently sitting in my basement. This game is currently listed for sale, (see https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/146817 ) the game was at a hospital in St. Louis before, and ive heard stories of Christopher Reeve playing this game.

BUT, what I would LOVE to do is instead of selling outright, to get enough funds from people to crowdfund the sale to then give this to Project Pinball so that they can put this somewhere for kids to play this game that are disabled.

Thanks to everyone getting involved in helping me set this up, and everyone who is donating.

Wait, This looks like he wants people to donate for the amount he is asking and then is donating it to a hospital. Is that correct? So he would get paid current asking and the hospital gets it?

I’m not sure if I’m missing something but if that’s the case is this really a good deed? It seems like it’s just another way to get your asking price for a pin that isn’t selling for that.

Yea, as a concept, it’s incredibly disingenuous and not charity. He is just crowdfunding his asking price on a pin that is so butchered he will never get retail.

I would not hold that opinion if he was trying to sell it for what he paid (and could verify it) and recoup his labor as a donation.
