Great older pin and one of the best natural racks I have seen - something worth gazing at for sure.

You missed one on Craigslist today. One of our locals got it...1200, lol. I hesitated on it, and he was 2 minutes away from where it was located. LITERALLY. =P

$1,200 is too much for Stern junk.

After nearly five years of searching for a Star Gazer of my own, I finally have one on it's way. I should be taking delivery of this one either this Friday or next Monday. Thanks Mark for selling me my number one most wanted pin... I can hardly wait to get it setup and play... I got hooked on the one at the Texas Pinball Festival a few years ago and then played it again a bunch this year. I have been chasing after a Star Gazer for the entire time I have been in the pinball hobby and now that I have one finally on it's way to me I feel like Wile E. Coyote after finally catching the Roadrunner... Now to figure out what my next most wanted pin is to find...

Yep. By my count, that makes Six.

Only mine is west of Dallas. And that one will soon travel east in the next few months.

For being such a rare pin, I see many threads about people buying Star Gazers.

Congrats, Shawn. My senses had me thinking this was a ruse. I'm glad it wasn't.

#17 6 years ago

yea, This has turned out to be a weird week. Another one was on Craigslist here and was just picked up by a fellow collector. How crazy..........4 of them in the last 2 weeks into Texas...

The Star Gazer arrived safely in Dallas in one piece today. As soon as the reproduction playfield comes out this summer, I plan to start the playfield swap and game restore. Thanks Mark for helping me scratch off my most wanted pin off my list! I am already making a list of the parts I need to order when I swap playfields.

Yep, you were sniped. Granted the seller could have sent you an IM like you asked. And the sniper 'could' have offered you dibs ...

yeah, just not too good of ethics. i mean, make ur own post with the same wanted post, no biggie.
but jumping on someones post and getting the machine that the person who responded was intending it to go to the "postee" (me). not cool.
then selling it for more than double what it was purchased for only months later...wow

kinda as if someone posts a game for sale with a price, then someone else jumps in on that post and offers same game, lower price, blah blah blah.

Hey there! Got a moment?
