    Quoted from tomdrum:

    Anyone want rid of a Gottlieb High Hand in Central PA?

    No High Hand, nor Cen. Pa. (Upstate N.Y.) but my 2nd Lucky Hand is pretty nice
    and always interested in making trades..

    Been looking for both Majorettes and Sweet Hearts to pop up for sale around me.

    Have a nice Sweet Hearts, but it's in N.Y.

    Majorettes is probably the game I miss the most. Fortunately for a low production game there seem to be a lot of survivors. And it's not everyone's cup of tea.

    King pin wedgehead, Under the cash box has been ripped loose. Played good the last time I played it. $350

    About the only game I would ship is something rare or hard to find - but thanks though

    Absolutely. I don't go to shows, but many of my pinball friends do.
    I'm not the easiest to get a game from anyways. Seems like I only
    like trading..

    King pin wedgehead

    Love the drops on King Pin, but hate my King of Diamonds.

    #58 1 year ago

    My King of Diamonds will never leave my collection - lighting the red card specials down low is a rush. A 60's classic for sure imo.......

    I may be the only person to
    Straight up buy a game from you in recent years

    I feel that way about my Diamond Jack , never leaving my collection.

    Bryan, I believe you to be right. You caught me at a time when
    I had the Space Pilot on the hook, and it's always nice when the
    hobby pays (or at least for a chunk) of a new machine for the collection..
    I'm happy you were able to get what you were looking for, and
    had a great time while you were here..

    And yes, D.J. is right up there as my favorite Wedge Head..

    Quoted from singlezero:

    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

    1. Big indian tentatively sold PPU
    2.Big Deal SOLD
    3. gottlieb gridiron SOLD
    4. Had someone with interest, then realized it was in a 50s cabinet and a friend has a 40s cab with arched backbox. decided to hold onto it (see 5)
    5. had someone call me wanting a wedgehead ... asking about my bowling queen . he ended up talking me into selling my world beauties. therefore , i probably have room for a woodrail so ... see item 4.

    Not sure if i can make a new 5 games to sell list now. this karma works good! i have since added another 2 wedgeheads(slick chick ,majorettes) so i probably do need to sell one. also .. i ended up getting a second williams ten spot in a trade so id probably be open to putting one of those up.

    #70 10 months ago

    Since this thread has started I've sold
    Hearts and Spades
    Daffie
    Lucky Ace
    Grand Prix (x2)
    Flip Flop
    Space Mission
    Dancing Lady
    Little Chief
    Midway Shooting gallery
    Duck Pin Alley
    Chicago Coin Pro Basketball
    Seeburg 220

    Some of these were just temporary filler but most were sold to help finance a couple dormers on my house.

    In the meantime I've added Bowlette, another Flip Flop, Jig Saw and Bow and Arrow. I'm content for the moment.

    Any of these these in this thread still for sale in 2019?

    I’m looking for a nice Gottlieb 3” flipper EM in NE USA or (Eastern Canada). AAB or replay, wedgehead or otherwise, what have you got?

    #72 16 days ago

    Still have my KoD that frustrates the shit out of me!!

    #73 16 days ago

    Would love to find a Prospector or Old Chicago within driving distance.

    #74 16 days ago

    Not in this post. I have a Big Hit, Golden Arrow and Team One that I will be posting soon.

    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    Updated:
    1. Expressway - sold $1800
    2. Grand Tour - sold $1200
    3. King Pin ('73) - sold $2700
    4. Pro-Football - sold $1750
    5. Top Score - sold $1825

    Price reflects various upgrades & meticulous rebuilds. Some had professional clear coat, cab repaints, etc. Way more hours involved than would be profitable for a retail business.

    All I have right now is a Hearts & Spades and Scuba. Backglass and playfield are nice on both. Haven’t rebuilt them yet.

    I know you put a lot in them but still good to see decent prices. Your reputation let the Buyer know they were getting a Premium EM.

    How much do you charge to appraise a machine?

    Honestly those prices were all over the place. Some had a clear coat playfield, some had a cab repaint, one needed a cab repaint... condition is everything.

    I sold a “perfect plus” 2001 for $3500 and completely rebuilt a gutted A-Go-Go for more than that. But the time invested for these restos was not worth it from a purely business POV... it was just a hobby. Now that my time is limited it is rare that I can do this at all.

    I don’t charge anything for an appraisal. Do you mean like appraising whether a machine should be bought and what for? Or doing a resto?

    A person could buy 2 or 3 of those titles and save $$$$ on shipping. All good games.

    #79 8 days ago

    My top 5 to leave the nest, sorry I kinda broke the rules with my 2 SS games.

    1. KISS and CPR playfield (just never play it and too many other games in the restore queue).
    2. Whirlwind SS
    3. Bally Fireball (really nice, super clean, and plays perfect, I just hate the gameplay).
    3. GTB Grand Slam 53 - shitty cabinet due to termite damage; vikane treated termite free
    4. GTB King Pin

    Funny how it works, in the beginning I was buying anything close to me. Now I have had 25 games, down to 9 I play.
    I don't buy Williams (I have 2 Klondike, Beat time) that's enough, mainly the art

    I only like say 1968 to the end 1977

    I prefer Gottlieb 2 players and Bally (especially Ted Zale)
