Ok I've posted before about being a vid guy but wanting to get a couple pins but have not found a deal I want yet (a couple I wanted fell through).

Thinking about trading my restored TMNT and might be able to work a deal on a trade for a Gameshow. Not being a pin guy it looks like a decent easy pin.

The TMNT is worth about $1500 so is it a fair trade? The pin has been sitting for a month or 2 on Craigslist with the price dropping. I can easily build another TMNT for around $800 (I have an extra konami cabinet so just need art, sticks and pcb). So it's not a big deal to trade my game but worried about the value of the gameshow.

Opinions about the game and about the trade?

$1500 is about the going rate for a fully working Game Show with no playfield wear (bubbling mylar is expected) and nice backglass and displays. Red on the cabinet would be nice, but most are faded. I sold one for about that price 6 months ago.

Personally, I quite like Gameshow. It's a fun game with a great soundtrack, and some fun shots. It's not for everyone though. Give it a play before you commit to a trade.

I think that’s a pretty fair trade, but Game Show should be shopped and play 100%. I would expect atleast a 8.5 condition wise.
