    What items have you guys been offered as a trade? I have had a car once and one offered brand new bed room sets. Needless to say I passed.

    #2 1 year ago

    I've not been offered anything other than cash, but I just acquired a boat I'll trade!

    #3 1 year ago

    A barb wire for my high speed+money. Passed.

    #4 1 year ago

    Broken stove, which may just need a new element. Used weightlifting equipment. Those are the dumbest ones I’ve had. And no, I was not looking for either.

    #5 1 year ago

    Various arcade video games on various occasions. On two of those occasions, I took some arcade games I always wanted in on trade.

    #6 1 year ago

    A boat for an EM. I already have one black hole hobby I throw money into, why would I want a second?

    #9 1 year ago

    Also the occasional weapon (guns)

    #10 1 year ago

    The craziest: a real human skull.

    Others:

    a musket. (edit, or maybe it was an old rifle, I just looked up muskets and they are worth real money, but the gun I was offered didn't show up as worth anything online)

    a moped.

    a dirtbike.

    "50 bucks and I'll clear that junk out for you".

    a much less sought after pinball machine for my machine plus a significant amount of cash.

    An xbox, more than once.

    We used to have a guy here in town that owned a mattress store that would always offer a mattress in trade.

    I did actually trade a pinball machine for a Corvette once. The guy who got my pin made out best in the trade.

    #12 1 year ago

    Traded a Bally Vector for a new roof on my carport.

    #13 1 year ago

    Craziest thing ever : I actually had a guy offer me “the services” of his wife and 1000 cash for my Bk2k needless to say i said no and WTF?!??

    Were you able to see and inspect the wife?

    #15 1 year ago

    Sports memorabilia autographed by various New York teams. Go Red Sox!

    Or at least get shooter lane pics?

    I'd have to see wife first before declaring "crazy" or "WTF".

    #19 1 year ago

    #20 1 year ago
    Quoted from Drickey86:

    The ole, "take me wife PLEASE!" Lol

    Yikes.

    Quoted from chad:

    I would at least consider those trades.

    #22 1 year ago

    I traded a garage door for pins a few times
    I traded a pit bike for a no fear
    I did a 3 way trade: a garage door for a kayak for a pinball ma hine

    #23 1 year ago

    My buddy wanted to trade me nice street bike for tspp....I didn't make the trade thou...

    It would only be fair if he got to test play the BK2K that you get to test play the wife!

    #25 1 year ago

    Traded my BK project for a S10 with 68k miles and bad fule pump. The truck has made me more money then the pin and I'm still happy.

    #26 1 year ago

    All these have been sent to me as offers. Of these, I don't know which ones were legit and which ones were someone messing with me, but they were all received by text or email in response to ads over the years.

    - 4-wheeler
    - Motorcycle
    - Project car in mid restoration (several of these offers)
    - Guns
    - A "really fun" date with a man's girlfriend
    - Video games
    - Custom PCs
    - Arcade games
    - Camping gear
    - Mountain bike
    - Fishing boat
    - Digital camera
    - Massages (it was something like 20 massages)
    - A year of IT support
    - Gift cards
    - A soda fountain
    - Pool table
    - Bathroom remodeling
    - Magic the Gathering cards
    - Riding lawnmower
    - Tool cabinet full of probably stolen tools

    There are probably plenty more I'm forgetting. When you put out lots of for sale ads over the years, they get noticed and often attract a wide range of offers aside from cash.

    #27 1 year ago

    Nothing.

    Most people who see my machines think I am out of my mind.

    #28 1 year ago

    Wow alot more offers than I would have thought. Keepem coming.

    Either you install garage doors for a living...or you have tons of doorless garages at the moment?

    I agree with this scenario as I can barely get people that come over besides my select group of pinball buddies to even play. I do have close friends that play a little but they don’t own any of their own machines and don’t plan on it either

    Some of us collect things in addition to pinball machines...

    #32 1 year ago

    Star Wars collection, a handgun, glass bong, weight bench, tools, music gear, etc.

    #33 1 year ago

    A giant inflatable clown head.

    #34 1 year ago

    I have offered to pay for games in gold or silver before

    no one takes the offer

    I also have a really nice clean seeburg M100B jukebox that i have tried to trade for a pin before.

    so i guess I'm part of the problem.

    but pm me if you got a WPT or similar dmd game lol

    #35 1 year ago

    Hey, I got my Jurassic Park in trade for doing some online marketing for a smaller distributor. Nothing wrong with offering the trade, but obviously you don't push it if they just want cash.

    #36 1 year ago

    An old Coke vending machine that did not cool. Said no.

    #37 1 year ago

    I was 0ffered a Mac10 for a Stern Galaxy. It was loaded too!

    #38 1 year ago

    10-15 years ago there was a guy who answered many pinball ads asking to trade a mattress. I know a dude who actually took him up on this!

    #39 1 year ago
    Quoted from whthrs166:

    A loaded Stern Galaxy, sweet.

    #40 1 year ago

    Junk cars, broken atvs, damaged arcade games- lots of old broken junk. No thanks

    #41 1 year ago

    Once was offered a motorcycle, but the AR15 was the best offer haha...

    #42 1 year ago

    Just stumbled across this on craigslist....

    chicago.craigslist.org link

    #43 1 year ago

    Neon signs, bar tab, 1985 Cadillac convertible, super Chexx bubble hockey, well at least that’s what I have now to trade for a pin if anyone is interested?

    #44 1 year ago

    Things I have traded for Pins or services range from landscaping to braces for the oldest sons teeth and many things in between

    #45 1 year ago

    A nice 2008 Jetski for my BTTF.

    #46 1 year ago

    I would consider a nice UTV in trade for a machine if someone's close and wants to make it happen.

    I usually just get offers of really crappy games, lol.

    #47 1 year ago

    I occasionally get offered an older, non working, classic. That they fine tuned, themselves. For something newer and working.

    LTG : )

    #48 1 year ago

    I traded a $500 Whirlwind (truly was a fuse! and needing a good cleaning) for a brand new home furnace, installed.
