Waited the last couple of years without seeing a Catacomb for sale locally or on Mr. Pinball and at any of the pinball shows in the bay area even to play, but yesterday one popped up on craigslist to my surprise! The guy used to run routes and is trying to get rid of his inventory = many other games still for sale ( someone bought the Mousin around while i was there)

sfbay.craigslist.org link

Expected the game to be rough but when I saw it I was amazed very good cabinet, only two small wear spots on playfield and backglass in good shape with a little splitting at the bottom. Already started tearing it down for a good deep clean + wax , some new rubbers and fuses. Only $700 happy as hell!

Quoted from practicalsteve:

Nice, I saw that listing, way to go! I really wish I had the cash on hand for the Haunted house or Dr. Dude, the good deals always seem to come up when I don't have the cash!

I didn't have the cash either, but was 200 from paying off the credit card so I said I would take a look (planning to walk away disapionted in the condition). When I saw it I knew I had to go back into debt further or kick myself for a long time!
I'll have it paid off in a month or two.

Quoted from Xtraball:

Your Catacomb has the letters on the "toast" inserts. Mine does not, nor do most. You may have quite a rare specimen. Enjoy, I love mine and remember, "shoot fast or lose shot"!

I didnt notice that until you pointed it out. Wonder if its an early prototype game or what?
