I'm a little dense... I had been following this thread for quite a while. I just realized a couple days ago that this is the very Star Trek that I play at my local establishment. Reading how many plays it had I would think "wow, that must be a good location", and it was the location I was at this entire time. Ha. Well, I'm sorry to see it go, it was always my go to machine. I hope it frees up some space for some other games when they are able to open back up.

Quoted from vireland:

Meh. Don't get too hung up on the play count. The amount of documented work needed was mostly minor. I'd buy star trek pros at $3200 all day long in this condition. Could have easily got $3700-$3900. $3200 is an extremely good deal for the machine documented here.

Thanks!

It did need a warp ramp replacement. I had the ramp. But it was cracked but never effected game play.

The back light wasn't working and I replaces starter, bulb and ballast. Not sure what that was.

Flippers were worn out

A bit of playfield wear at drop target.

All. In all I figured it needed $200-300 in work and 5-8 in work to get it to the $4,000 mark. Maybe I'm too fair Haha!

You're extraordinarily generous with your sale pricing. In this case, if I bought it for home use, I wouldn't have even replaced a cracked ramp that didn't affect play. Lots of people have cracked ramps at the entrances on their games RIGHT NOW and don't even know it.

Backlight is the biggest pain. Sometimes those are hard to nail down.

Basically I'd hand you $3200, rebuild the three flippers, clean the machine, mylar by the target and start playing it. Eventually the backlight would bug me enough that I'd fix it. $150+time max for all of it. $3350 is a killer deal for a Star Trek Pro that plays great.

Anyway, everyone that lives near you are lucky ducks when it's time to sell your next pin.

yes! same. I'd also say it is nice to see an Op sell at a "normal"/good price. Although, that also helps to sell the game faster :-p

Yes I had a cash in hand offer. I figured if take the cash, give the buyer a great deal and save myself a bunch of time fielding offers for trades and offers under 3200 anyway haha!

Im curious. What was the total net profit from routing this game? $7500 - 8000?

"I'm confused. I thought Sterns were shit. How is this possible? My head hurts."

I'd be curious what total plays vs paid plays were. The new spike system breaks this out (maybe old one did?) and it makes it easy and quick to get stats off route games.
