I've recently found a Friendship 7 machine for sale, and it seems like I might be able to buy it for somewhere around $125-200. It is untested but seems to be in nice cosmetic shape. What would something like this be worth? Thanks!

Pretty rare and fun game. At that price it sounds amazing regardless of condition.

Cool. I'm not totally sure I have room for it. If I were to fix it up, clean it, and maybe test it, do you think I would a have a good market for reselling? (I would love to keep it but just not sure the parents want it in the house haha)

If you are new to this hobby then I would be careful with how much you tinker with a machine as rare as that one. Something you may do to "fix" the machine may in fact decrease its value. A game like that has higher value to a select group of collectors of older EM machines. Electro-Mechanical (EM) machines have a few fans, but sometimes it is hard to find a buyer for the older machines at the price you want. That is a rare game for sure and someone would love to have it.

Yeah, I don't have any experience and I definitely have kept that in mind. I am even thinking it would be good to be careful of even plugging it (although I'm not sure why the seller hasn't already).

It is a fun hobby for sure, but electricity is no joke. I recently got a game from 1972 and the main electrical cord was pretty much falling apart. This is a good resource if you wind up getting it. http://www.pinrepair.com/em/index.htm Get it working and gently clean it and play it. With these old machines just be careful that by "fixing it" you aren't making it worse.
