The real question is will the new owner bring to expo?

#402 4 months ago

Only 6% of Pinsiders were correct in guessing it's worth. Congrats, you win nothing but a supreme pat on the back (which could be worth a couple of hundred dollars if you have a Supreme bumper sticker in your hand).

Quoted from littlecammi:

Well, that lack of auction activity was a supreme disappointment.

HA!

#404 4 months ago
Quoted from Coindork:

I guess we now know what someone is willing to pay for one of these at auction.

Not really.

I stood behind a guy who bid $5100.00 for a Game Plan Cyclopes. It shipped to a California buyer for $5200.00 + any other costs.

A few weeks later, a Cyclopes sold at auction in Washington state for $3,000.00. You never can tell.

But, yeah, this auction probably threw some cold water on other people who own this pin.

The used out of the box part is probably what killed the value of this one.

#406 4 months ago

I guess I am really curious now who won this bid and where the Supreme machine will be located. Also wondering if they will actually play the game. I bet it will disappear from public viewing.

Auction prices are a funny thing.
They are not necessarily a direct indication of what the market value is on an item.
What they are an indication of is what two people (high bidder and underbidder) were willing to pay for that item on the day of the auction.

38750 for one super brand pin. Or 38750 for 5-6 HUO premiums. Hmmmmmmmmm
I’m glad to have friends and family who would be more impressed with option 2.

For a lot of people, it’s all about having what no one else does.

Yup, super rare is what people pay for. It has nothing to do with a pinball machine. It's just another item in the supreme catalog.

My wifes uncle was a well off land developer. He had a Ferrari that was one of three. 7 figure car. The money meant nothing but damn did you hear about there's only 3 of these cars made.

I get it, but for me rare items also have to be cool to have appeal. If the rare item is tacky or lame then who cares?

I’m with you, but the guy who paid $38,750 seems to care.

True. I wonder if it would make a difference to him to learn it's basically a re-skinned $3k home pin. I'm guessing it wouldn't make a difference. There's some odd brand loyalty with this company. Seems like they can slap their logo on anything and get big bucks.

The brand doesn’t make sense to me, but most of my children’s friends love it (ages 10-16).

Right, but GM didn't make the car and then have Ferrari slap their name on it. Ferrari actually makes high-end cars. What exactly does Supreme do again besides con people with a name?

Nothing, and that’s the beauty of it.

I wonder if o-din won it. I have not seen him here today and he did change his avatar to the supreme logo a few days ago.

No offense but I'm sure the person who bought this doesn't give a shit about your opinion or money. Also, they might have 5-6 HUO Premiums too for all we know. LEs more likely. Option 3.

"The beauty of it" as in you admire their gall or that you really think they've done something fantastic?

#420 4 months ago
Quoted from AFM95:

That's my bid.

So, did you end up winning this? It seems the winning bid was $31,000 and then with fees we ended up at the higher amount.

I didn't buy this pin to impress my friends and family; I bought it to get laid.

Will this get you more laid than the immamaculate Baywatch?

My girlfriend does not like those colors(red and white), so it would have not helped me.

Do let us know how that goes. Hope it's a real panty-dropper.

#425 4 months ago

I admire the skills of selling for 1000$ a piece of cloth that cost 5$ to make.

Selling one is not easy but keeping it going for a decade with an audience that’s volatile by nature is very impressive.

#426 4 months ago

as i always say "title is everything" . not game play, not art, not sound. you start to throw non pinballers in the mix who have money and are buying based on name alone and sky is the limit.

I’ve dont dumber shit to get laid.
Maybe not as expensive, but certainly dumber.

#428 4 months ago

I am officially out of touch. I already knew that but this auction is confirmation.

#429 4 months ago

So it seems that at least 12 of these were made. Let's do a quick count:
1. Sunshine Laundromat
2. BNL Ed Robertson
3. @afm95
4. @asoa
5. @datschwandt
6. @freegoldwatch
7. @maplesyrup

So you still don't get it?

#431 4 months ago

Anyone who has to get their pinball machine at Rent-a-Center will not understand this,

Actually I think his comment shows he gets it completely.

#433 4 months ago
Quoted from motorbreth77:

So you still don't get it?

$3k for the home ed. pin
$1k for the new DMD dots
$34.75k for the rare, pinball-sized Supreme stickers

What’s not to get? If you’re into pinball and don’t care about Supreme this seems crazy. If you’re into Supreme, whether or not you care about pinball, this just might make sense.

I think Stern confirmed 100 were contract produced to be distributed by Supreme.

Also it's amusing how many people in this hobby want to talk shit about other collectors. People in glass houses and all that.

I doubt Supreme released all of them to the market.

#436 4 months ago
Quoted from adol75:

They gave some away to cronies/skateshops/bars.

I'm pretty sure the one on location at Max Fish bar downtown NYC was a freebie.

#437 4 months ago
Quoted from adol75:

I bet they did. That company is lean by design. They take an Apple like approach of minimizing how much merchandise they have in the channel. If they still have any, it's very few.

I would think they probably sold maybe half of them in private deals with their most loyal customers, select restaurants/bars/offices/etc conducive to "the brand", and then let their fanbase fight for whatever scraps were left.

#438 4 months ago

I’ll tell you what. I’m not sure how long Supreme will have before people move on, but that’s a hell of a ROI and it’s got me interested.

#439 4 months ago

I am less shocked by this than someone paying $87K for a piece of tiny piece of cardboard https://www.polygon.com/2018/7/28/17625830/magic-the-gathering-black-lotus-auction-sold

I know what you mean. If I wasn't married, I'd be throwing out the "I have a Star Trek Premium pinball machine" line all the time. I'd be up to my neck in T & A.

With the fanatical following this stuff generates, "I have a Supreme pinball machine" will probably have them fighting over you. Lucky bastard!!

Not that shocking when you realize there are high stakes Magic tournaments where that card is legal. I have a friend who occasionally wins major tourneys. He's won at least $50k over the years. (Probably spent as much on cards, traveling, etc... but you get the idea)

That's because when you grew up, there was something actually called "shame" and it was ingrained into you. I would say that we're blessed. Others would say that we're cursed by it.

Oh I get it but hey, a beat $500.00 BL works just as good in play as a $87,000 9.5/10 one

So has everybody recovered from their heart attacks yet?

#446 4 months ago

Lol no. Still some old farts who don’t get it...

I remember when I told these clowns it worth 35k...yep ahhhh

#447 4 months ago

The jewelry and the hat on the dude in the commercial is all you need to know about who the Supreme brand appeals to:

At least one thing about the Supreme brand is cheap - the card on the apron shows 1 play for a $.25 or 5 plays for $1.

Also, is the dude trying to twist the flipper button at 0:25 in the commercial?

Definitely a case where apparently the whole is worth substantially more than the sum of its parts (at least to one person in the world).

How about on the aging rock star?
