"T2 itself doesn't bring much money"
....seems like a lot of recent sales are in the $2500 range....is that perception based in relativity to new sterns? $2500 seems like much to me. Dunno?
I turned my $750 T2 off of CL into a thing of beauty. Wish you would have had this PF for sale 1 yr ago before we started the restoration process. Then we would have only needed HSA to clear coat it. The stock Diamond Plate is not that thick to begin with.
I have an NOS T2 playfield and paid $1400 for it 3 years ago. I'm aware that is close to the price of the machine and quite aware that I probably overpaid, but I didn't care. When it comes to a playfield like this that is fairly rare to come by, a collector who loves the game and can afford the PF, doesn't value the PF relative to the price of the machine. He/She sees an opportunity to acquire a rare piece that will tremendously uptick the quality of their machine and they jump at it. Now if there were a ton of repros available or it was a late Stern game with PFs readily available than by all means it becomes sub $1k. I'm not saying the pricing logic is right, but if the item is rare enough then it will command that premium.
