Quoted from PinDocMN:

How in the heck did you even find that many pins to buy? I've been searching hard for any game I've played and enjoyed, or maybe something from the top 50 list and anything that pops up on Craigslist/Ebay is either crazy expensive or sells within minutes. 500 sq-ft arcade sounds amazing. Forget the hardwood floors, eat in kitchen, good school districts, etc. my next house needs only that one feature! (sorry again to the wife)
Pinball seems like it's getting more popular with new pinball bars opening, leagues, TV news stories, etc. Is there a shortage of pins or some kind of pinball bubble going on right now making games harder to find and super expensive?

I feel like recently there have been a ton of games on cL and here I’m not horrible price ranges. Even pinball warehouse has some games at good prices for a retail outlet that feel on par with the market. However if you are looking for a specific title, yes those never seem to come up. I was looking for a lotr’s And needed up driving to Chicago to pick it up after 3 months of nothing... well there was one over priced one on cL.

I made the same 12 hour round trip drive to Chicago to pick up a minty Guns N Roses, after nothing popped up in the Twin Cities for sale, after looking for 3+ years.

The game you have been waiting for shows up immediately AFTER you settle on your second or third choice and get it in the house!
Put another way:
when the itch to add a new game overcomes your patience to hold out.

Ugh ya! Long trip! The guy and his family thought I was insane but hou lotr? Yes please super nice guy! I’d drive down again and buy from him.

Hahah yes! Lotrs all over now

Well how do you fake buy games, so you can snag the game that comes up after!

#10655 11 days ago

You have to network with other pinball fans in the Twin Cities. Start coming out to events or talking to more people and you'll be amazed at how many things are offered up. Most of the games I buy and sell nowadays never even make it online for sale they just go right to someone else for a simple transaction through private channels. I love it because I get the games I want at the price I want and I don't have to deal with strangers no showing or tire kickers wasting my time. Same for selling. I don't mind selling a little below market for a easy smooth transaction.

Great advice John... and now that we've met a few events, I will be expecting a PM when you want to unload any of your games!! I don't even expect below market, I just need more pins!!

I will definitely keep you in mind. I just recently sold my Judge Dredd. $2,000 with original topper and working. Didn't post it for sale anywhere, instead sold it a guy who I met through pinball events that lives close by to me. He wanted to buy my Maverick when I sold that for $1500 with original topper and working several months ago, but missed out. So out of the blue I just contacted him about the Judge Dredd I wanted to sell to see if he was interested. Turns out he was. He came over, played it and picked it up the next day. No endless phone calls and picture requests, no time wasting, no 20 questions, no low ball offers, no asking me to be tech support for the game down the road. It's a beautiful thing. I'm sure I could have gotten a couple hundred more for each game, but I would much rather have the easy quick sale than deal with the public and drive myself crazy in the process. Ghostbusters I just picked up was a private sale too, not advertised for sale anywhere. It was a quick smooth transaction and I was able to get it below market value because the seller appreciates a no BS transaction as much I do.

#10663 11 days ago

A nice Dredd for 2k?
Wow...
the one that got away
that I never knew about.

Road trip! Me and 3 friends (Tallon, Rusty lizard & Forty two) are heading to Minneapolis for some pinball fun next Monday (1-15-18). One stop will be Tilt Bar early afternoon (12:30,1pm?)

Come on over if you wish to hang out & play some pins.

Note I will be pulling out the Pinball Mayhem camera from time to time to document our trip & get some gameplay footage too.

See you there?

#10673 10 days ago

Both Tilt and SS Billiards are great! We're lucky to have them in town.

I'll continue with the "we've got pins to move" tone of this thread lately!

I'm planning on moving out a Bally Playboy and a players SST shortly.

The Playboy has an alltek board, new legs, and a very nice backglass. Not bad for a '78 vintage chick!

Let me know if interested, thanks!

#10677 10 days ago

Did anyone snag (or see) that Jurassic that was on CL for $500 and lasted under 30 minutes?

Pretty sure this is a scam in case anyone saw it on LetGo.

Definitely. I went back and forth a few times on it. Told me he was in Ohio and he disappeared when I said I’d send a friend over to check it out.

Yeah, we agreed on the sale and pick up, then an hour later he said he got a lot of calls/texts which was an indication of too low of a price and was going to relist for more.

#10695 8 days ago

Hmmm, well I guess that puts the required pickup window for a CL deal in the twin cities at around 45 minutes.... Duly noted.

#10696 8 days ago

Unless you want a fairly priced rfm. That took a whole 2 days to sell and then went to california...

Nothing wrong with drinks on the glass. Right Tim?
