    Quoted from lb1:

    Right now for me. Plenty of old and new games. Tons of information on how to restore games with the top restorers being very generous and sharing tips. Prices are high but if they were not I'm not sure pinball would be where it is. There is something for everyone in this hobby.

    I would have to agree with you about there being something for everybody in this hobby. Seriously, I have never seen in person a pinball machine newer than a 1989 built machine. I don't really even recall ever seeing one since I was about 20 yrs old up until 17 months ago when I ran across one for sale and bought it because I remember playing it many years ago. Within this 17 month period, I have managed to come up with and purchase 13 pinball machines, and haven't paid over $500 for one yet. I can't imagine paying 5 to 10k or even more for a pinball machine, but then again, like I said, I haven't seen or played one newer than a 26 year old machine.
    ....So, my best era of pinball machines would have to be system 11 games. lol
