    As suggested in the Top five EM's wanted post:

    Quoted from singlezero:Well after responding to this I had a captain card hight hand on. My 5 most wanted . I had been following an add in Quebec for one for 900 but. Didn't want to take the 8 plus hour trip.
    Anyways a listing came up for a pinnball for free and it had been posted for 7 mins I found his number on another of his ads. A high hand for free! Oh it's a mouse nest. And baad caab repaint but plastics good. Playfield good except common kick out hole scar and backglass perfect but a few scratches I to right of credit wheel . Schematics? Yes backdoor yes. I paid him 25 bucks for honouring my call and to boot it was 30 mins from my house.
    Can't believe the karma now if anyone wants to start a thread of 5 Em's you most want to get rid of maybe I'd have better luck selling a few

    Here is a place to list the top five EM's you would like to sell to make room for your top five you want to add. For me, I don't really want sell any of them, but I am overloaded, so here's my list:

    Gottlieb Stock Car
    Williams El Toro
    Gottlieb Melody
    Gottlieb Flipper Clown
    Gottlieb Ice Show

    #2 1 year ago

    1. Pro-Football
    2. maybe Top Score

    Rest are keepers for now...

    #3 1 year ago

    I only have 3 at the moment with room for two. It looks like Daffie may be leaving Saturday which solves my overflow problem. Dancing Lady is a players game but it's staying. Which leaves Hearts and Spades. I'm perfectly content with keeping it for now. It's a pretty fun game, but I'd sell it if something more interesting came available. I don't have a top five I'm searching for. Decided it's more fun to take what comes along.

    1. Hearts and Spades

    #4 1 year ago

    Pioneer/Spirit of 76
    Flipper Clown
    Grand Canyon
    Prospector

    already sold my Stock Car

    1. Hearts and Spades

    "Hearts and Spades" was my first pin ever. Bought it from an arcade nearly 40 years ago.
    I don't think I owned it more than three years. I still haven't gotten another one. Hard to find one in nice overall condition.

    It's a nice game. I like it. It could stick around and I'd be fine with it. Mine has a mediocre playfield with yucky amateur clear coat. The good news is it peels off with a finger nail. That's my next project. Clean off the old clear coat and replace a broken pop bumper rod/ring.

    #7 1 year ago

    Pretty much the ones I already got rid of.

    #8 1 year ago

    I don't "want to get rid" of any of mine, but I'm currently beyond capacity. I'd love to be able to work out a deal for someone to take multiples of mine for one of theirs. There are a handful of my EMs that I will either never sell or that aren't currently for sale, but I'd currently be willing to re-home three of them...

    Williams Blue Chip
    Williams Little Chief
    Williams Fun Fest (have an extra playfield which I am planning to restore and do a playfield swap this winter if I don't find it a new home)

    Nothing at this point as I only have two machines total. Need to buy more, not sell!

    #10 1 year ago

    You guys should consider putting a possible price tag next to game incase someone wants to reach out to you.

    Diamond Jack

    Odd wedge out due to some pretty reckless impulse purchases. The rest are keepers

    #12 1 year ago

    Can't blame you for that. I had a King of Diamonds, the replay version and that was about the shortest lived game in my collection. Some games are easy to beat, but this one took that to a whole new level.

    #13 1 year ago

    I don't know, it might look good next to my KoD. Too bad I'm not close to You Bet.

    #14 1 year ago

    I'm not usually an Add-A-Ball guy, but I prefer Diamond Jack to KOD by a pretty wide margin. Like a lot of Gottliebs, all of the targets in KOD have the same value and you don't get a bonus for completing the set (except a knock noise)... so there's no point chasing down the risky shots if you want to get a high score or win a tourney. In fact, better to avoid the entire roto-card unit altogether!

    How to win KOD: Shoot for the standup K or Q targets and hope for a lot of bounces up there. Repeat.

    Flip-A-Card has a similar strategy: Catch the ball, shoot to top lanes. Ignore everything else. Repeat.

    (yes, a bit of sarcasm here... I think the games would be much more fun to award 2000 points or something for finishing the set)

    #15 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    I had a King of Diamonds, the replay version and that was about the shortest lived

    Same here when I traded in a King of Diamonds. I couldn't believe the difference in game play to
    Diamond Jack which actually is one of my favorite Wedge Heads..

    Believe me, it didn't stick around long enough for me to figure that out,
    but a good playing D.J. is a great game, and although I have gotten good
    scores, I haven't flipped one yet..

    #16 1 year ago

    Looks like I'm late to defending how fun Jack is for the home player as opposed to KoD.

    #17 1 year ago

    Oh since I suggested this thread I guess I'd better respond. I guess the title is misleading it's not saying these machines or clunkers . I guess. Most of us have capacity issues or lack of time or just not one of your favourites for any number of reasons . For instance the OP wants to get rid of El toro, melody and flipper clown but I'm not wanting to part with those titles yet( has a singalongg not melody).

    1 big Indian ( has a big brave now) rough shape but probably my favourite 70s em to play
    2. Big deal ( it's no big deal)
    3 gottlieb gridiron) nice player but it's never quite got its hook in me
    4 1947 bowling champ needs some work has a shay bg but no room for this woodrail
    5 one of my 60s wedheads to make room for one coming

    #18 1 year ago

    Just got a nice Gottlieb Flipper Parade up and running nicely.
    No room for it so it will be leaving first.
    After that maybe A-Go-Go but we really are having a great time playing it right now.

    #19 1 year ago
    Quoted from Arcade:

    maybe A-Go-Go but we really are having a great time playing it right now

    We are still having a lot of fun with that one as well. It hasn't yet given me the feeling it may have to go someday.

    Plus there are only so many short flipper multiplayer Williams games, and so far those seem to have more staying power than many of the others.

    #20 1 year ago

    Gottlieb Atlantis (own 2)
    Sing Along ( own 2)
    Road Race
    Top Card
    Gottlieb Bowling Queen

    However, none are for sale

    #21 1 year ago

    Keep going guys. I'm looking for a couple of EMs and I haven't seen them here for sale yet

    #22 1 year ago
    Quoted from singlezero:

    For instance the OP wants to get rid of El toro, melody and flipper clown

    Actually...I really like all three of these titles, but I can't keep them all!

    Did Herb get your "KOD"? He's a big fan of that game. I really like it myself, and maybe even a bit more than "Diamond Jack" because of the red "specials". Both are truly gorgeous and unique wedgeheads. I don't find "KOD" to be too much of a patsy. It's so much fun to play, and having five target faces on that carousel-style roto to shoot at is a blast.

    #24 1 year ago

    My only one,Strange World

    #25 1 year ago

    Gottlieb Majorettes
    Gottlieb Skyline
    Gottlieb Sweet Hearts

    #26 1 year ago

    Hi.For me it will be:
    Merry go round
    sweet hearts
    super soccer
    Now
    Bank a ball ( i have 2)

    No, I sold it to rat_tamago and I think he then sent it over seas. It was hit the five target faces and then spin roto and hit the rest that made this game particularly easy for me.

    Not a big fan of roto targets to begin with, but I when I play one I like the target to be somewhat of a challenge.

    #28 1 year ago

    It's a tie between two:
    1. Palooka: it's fun to play, but add-a-ball gameplay isn't my thing.
    1. Teacher's Pet: my least played pin, but I like playing it, and I love the theme.

    #29 1 year ago

    Whoops

    #30 1 year ago

    I'd probably sell.
    1961 Chicago Coin Pro Basketball
    1956 Williams 4 Bagger
    1950 Skee Alley
    That is if the right buyer came along that didn't make it a pain in the ass.

    For a healthy enough offer I'd consider
    1958 Bally Skill Roll
    1960 Midway Shooting Gallery
    1952 Munves Set Shot Basketball

    #31 1 year ago

    Wow Alex! I just saw your CL ads for the Basketball and the baseball. Great looking games. Wish I had the space and the free cash...unless you want to a package deal...some of my EM's for one of yours?

    #32 1 year ago

    Thinking I'd like to scale back a bit. I may consider a partial trade but cash is king.

    #33 1 year ago

    1949 Utah
    1964 Palooka

    I'd like to trade these two games together as a package deal for a nice woodrail or a good wedgehead. I'll consider selling them separately though.

    Quoted from jfh:

    Gottlieb Majorettes
    Gottlieb Skyline
    Gottlieb Sweet Hearts

    Majorettes is on my bucket list.

    The 5 to go of my 21.

    Outer Space

    Quoted from jahbarron:

    Funny but DJ is 3rd on my list of lineup keepers . Pleasure Isle & Astro are 1 & 2. Neptune 4th (wife loves it) Delta Queen (sentimental reasons)

    #36 1 year ago

    Neptune
    Queen of Diamonds

    #37 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinwhoo:

    Neptune
    Queen of Diamonds

    Neptune??? You must want the money

    #38 1 year ago

    Spin A Card. Pretty machine, pure Poker, you don't even care what the high score is, you just need a Royal Flush. Sentimental because its my only small flipper (with yellow dot in it) and still enjoy playing it. Rather try something new.
    Out Of Sight. Again, my only drop target game, still enjoy playing it. Just a little jumbled in the logic, like the designer was smokin what the crowd on the back glass seemed to be.
    Repairing the house and looking for cash calves or I wouldn't consider letting either go.

    #39 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinhead52:

    couldn't unload mine fast enough..did nothing for me.

    Rarity does not always a great player make.

    #44 1 year ago

    Anyone want rid of a Gottlieb High Hand in Central PA? Had two, sold both 15 years ago.

    #45 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    Rarity does not always a great player make.

    In novelty mode I cant get enough of the 5 knocker hits for a rollover... On my HtD I moved the 1000's chime lead to the knocker to get a similar sound.

    #46 1 year ago
    Quoted from pinhead52:

    Then you should get an Ali Baba, where the knocker was designed for scoring, not replays. That thing will drive you nuts after a while.

    My 1948 Buccaneer has the same feature but not quite as prevalent.

    #47 1 year ago

    I don't really want to sell any of these, but nonetheless, expect to be offering these all for sale in the near future:

    1. 1956 Gtb Derby Day
    2. 1957 Gtb Ace High
    3. 1959 Gtb Straight Shooter
    4. 1966 Gtb Subway
    5. 1976 Gtb Surf Champ

    All are projects to varying degrees.

    Not sure offhand as it was one of the first games I bought and I'll need to pull it out of storage, check it over, and take some pics yet. Feel free to PM me in the meantime if you wish.
