    My collection value changes in 2017 predictions:
    (take it with a grain of salt)

    Haunted House ^25% (see these going for more and more money lately)
    Super Orbit ^2% (saw one sold for like $1800? wowza)
    T2 ^5% (prices already ridiculous on this title)
    SF2 ^10% (for all the hate this pin continues to grow in popularity)
    JP ^15% (great nostalgic theme and with the new rules and mods, game is a winner)
    BW v10% (prices on this have been high, I predict a leveling with other titles of the era)

    White Water get the F*&% in my house!

    How many did I pass up @ $1800? before I bought the bullet, and got out even cheaper than now?!?
    BSD...seriously....900-1200 you could get them 5 years ago.

    #12 2 years ago

    The Gottlieb system 3's have gone up quite a bit!
    A couple years ago, you could find Wipe Out, Gladiators, Barb Wire, Waterworld, ect. (excluding Stargate) for around $1000
    Now those are hovering around 2 - 2.5k
    I know that doesn't sound like a lot to the new Stern buyers out there, but 100 - 150% margin is a big jump in a couple years!

    Maybe this shows the demand for games in this price range have gone up..

    Pins that really went up in value include Tron LE, Ac/Dc BIB, BBB and for awhile MET LE.

    IM really went up in value too then the VE brought the value back down to reality

    Yeah, but I opted for the pricier, unfaded, barely played model. And didn't mind paying a bit extra for that.

    Well i have to agree with bsd.. dammm papa tournaments.. :p

    #18 2 years ago

    what I have seen most data east have nearly doubled.

    wcs94. sttng. wh2o tom.

    I think alot of titles have always demanded a good amount of money since the late 90s. but others are thru the roof!

    MG - four years ago it was going for 15k. Reports today of a bid/ask price of $25k for one game, folks. All may be answered shortly with finished games, but I am betting against this happening. Foreseeing delays, excuses and complaints of lacking code. Oh yeah, and probably some sort of legal problems - makes MG my contender for best ROI

    Sadly nobody's seen one yet.

    #21 2 years ago

    the shadow, scared stiff and bsd are the ones i keep seeing going up in value.
    gotta get them before they are out of reach!
