Saw that. Other neck of the woods though.

(thanks for the bump!)

#11 3 years ago

I'd sell mine for 3200 with new cabinet art and new siderails Mr beard. Lol

#12 3 years ago

Hump day bump day

#13 3 years ago

I guess I was lucky to find mine after a 2 year search. Let two really rough ones pass before I finally snagged one.
Good luck on round 2!

Thanks. I'll find one at some point.

#15 3 years ago

He dropped his price on this one by a $1k, maybe you got through to him...

ebay.com link » Mousin Around Pinball Machine Very Nice Condition All Super Bright Leds

What do you think this one is worth? I'm not up on the value of MA but thought they were a $2k pin.

#16 3 years ago

With that nasty playfield wear, no idea. Flipper wear stinks.

Also he told me the upper ramp has an issue with ball making it into the mouse hole.

I'd rather wait for another one without the flipper wear.

#18 3 years ago

There is one in Nashville at a local arcade for sale, Mousin' Around-$2495. I played it regularly before I found mine. PM me if you want details.

#19 3 years ago

Morning bump.

Gonna be at Allentown and Ohio shows too.

#20 3 years ago

Apparently this pin is the flavor of the month which always drives price up which can be good for you since people may wanna cash out while its hot . Id say if you find a decent one for 2-2500 you sld not hesitate . I remember there was a pretty nice one at Allentown last year for 1200 ...... I actually was gonna grab it but had no room, wish I would of found a way now lol. Good luck man I know you been looking for a while

#21 3 years ago

i won't be spending 2-2500 on a mousin anytime soon but thanks.

Lol 2500 gets mine today!(I'll even get it into garage for you & include manual) Sorry beard no extras! This is a "pre diddy" sale only please.

11-1400. But that's just my opion?

I love this forum, a little buzz and prices rocket! This comes from a guy that got 4k for a congo, which is worth what now Maybe 10,500. ?

I guess this means we'll get to see this thread bumped every day for another couple of years.

#24 3 years ago

10k by easter

#25 3 years ago

Around 1500 is about right. There was one at pinfest like 2 years ago at $800. No one wanted it.

It's a decent pin but it is what it is.

2-2500?! I'd rather buy a dh or shit, ft.

#26 3 years ago

2500 for a system 11 title is bonkers. Maybe I'm living in the past.

I agree and i wldnt pay more than 2k for a very very nice one .However if you really want one and wont drive far to get a deal or ship it than it may cost a little more to get one since options are limited . I actually think its one of the better system 11 pins as far as gameplay.

Times are changing and prices are getting stupit on used pins but people keep buying them and soon there wont be any decent pins below 2 k for the influx of new people .

Let's try to keep this on target guys.

Looking for a mousin bump!

#33 3 years ago
Quoted from Blackbeard:

Around 1500 is about right.

If you are planning to find a nice one for 1500, then this thread will be on reboot #4 or #5 before you get a MA.

1500 is on the low end for a decent example. GLIYH

Deals can be found, but unlikely that Pinside is going to be your spot to score a cheap one.

Again let me just find my pin.

Enough banter for Christs sakes.

#35 3 years ago

Blackbeard if you really wanted a Mousin then just spend for it, lifes too short .

#36 3 years ago

Yeah not going to find one at 1500$ that ship sailed awhile ago

#37 3 years ago

Sold my Mousin' for $1300 to a guy in New Jersey

How long ago & what condition?

#39 3 years ago

My friend on here just bought one for 1400 and that INCLUDED shipping.

Just a month ago.

Just a month ago.

is that the one being sent out for full restoration?

For a LONG time I said I would not pay over 1500 for sys11 games.

I spent a year looking and found an decent one that I paid more that 1500 for. I got tired of looking/waiting and decided it was silly trying to save a couple hundred and not having the game in my home.

I also recently overpaid on an ES with a nice pf (2400), but I wanted the game and was tired of hunting. Life is WAY TOO short to quibble over a couple hundred for a game I want.

Reality is that the more desirable sys11 games (esp the rare ones that are often beat up) cost more than they did a few years ago.

When Taxi (a super high production game) sells for 1500, then low produciton games like MA cost quite a bit more typcially.

He would restore a diamond if he could. Regardless, what's the point in bickering.

The end story is I'm not overpaying. Period.

I'd ask that you quit posting your lame price police bullshit here. It's my ad and it keeps getting derailed left and right. I've only asked like 3 times now. If you're so concerned about price, start a price check.

There is a way not to start a thread when you post a market place ad. Just thought you might like to know that.
This will keep the nasty price police out of your thread.
Bump!

I am not concerned about price at all... I own the game and was happy to pay market to have it.

Quoted from Blackbeard:

Considering your definition of overpaying seems to be over 1500, then the end story is you have a VERY limited sellers market.

From what we have seen you are unwilling to ship in a nice one and think anything over 1500 is too much. There are not many MA out there, even fewer available at <1500, and there are even fewer available that are in a short/drivable distance. Just pointing out that you are really limiting your chances.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that, but that is the reality we all live in.

If anyone has a nice MA in the midwest (MN, WI, IA, IL, IN area) for 1500, then I will take it with no hassles.

Again, for the 4th time, enough.

#45 3 years ago

Put me down for...anything over $1500 is too much.

#46 3 years ago

Ok guys, I bought mine a month ago for 1100. Plus 300 to ship. It's not a piece of shit! It is going to have a permanent spot in my small collection and that's the only reason it's getting a "full resto " as pointed out, or its fine the way it is.

Blackbeard just wants to see examples at any and all price ranges that's all, once he sees what hes looking for per condition that will equal what he wants or is willing to pay, hes not expecting one for $300 and he won't pay 3000 either, and prices are getting ridiculous, but as pointed out if people keep buying them at ridiculous high prices they're going to keep going up. I for one think ma is a great pin, however I wouldn't have paid much more , so did I get a good deal or not ?I don't know but for me the answer would be yes.

Funny thing is, I offered Trimoto $1600 for this (unless this is a different Mousin') & we agreed to the deal. I had a truck and was already on my way to St. Louis for some other pins as well when he changed his mind. I was happy to pay more than I thought was reasonable for the particular one I got pics of. It was super nice & I was already going to STL, so...

Quoted from fattdirk:

Good examples of Whirlwind, Diner & probably Earthshaker are now up near that price point these days. Some would argue that Sys11 was pinball at its peak of fun.

Same one,he said he changed his mind on selling it a couple times, he had it listed for a little more but we settled on 1100. He also threw in brand new pop bumpers with new light sockets and brand new flipper rebuild kit with a couple used parts as well, manual etc.

I still think prices are getting ridiculous, 1700. For a beat pf on a xenon really? Then mine is worth 4k lol, mines "restored " and I wouldn't think it's worth more than 1500 on a good day. My eatpm is in the process of getting the pf restored, maybe when that comes back I'll ask 12500. For it.

Then that is a very nice Mousin'!

My favorite was the $3000 Centaur with a belt-sanded playfield. In regards to the price, the listing said, "Hey, it's a Centaur!"
