I still need a Genie for a client, if anyone has one kicking around.

When did Halloween costumes become marital aids?

The moment those girls graduate from Catholic School.

Everyone always tells me that they press the PROHIBITED button on any Bay City SPAM ads on CL.

#183 5 years ago
Quoted from tamoore:

Josh and Chris are friends of mine, and are true pinball addicts.

If they truly are your friends, you should tell them to quit illegally spamming CL.

Can I post my ad on more than one craigslist site?

Please choose just ONE local craigslist site for which your ad is most relevant—generally the site closest to you. If your ad is equally relevant to all locations, your ad does not belong on craigslist. Please find another service. Posting the same ad to multiple locations on craigslist is prohibited.

Anyone with a phone app that dings when the word "pinball" comes up in an ad is certainly pissed with their BS.

I've heard more than one person say that they will "smash their face in" if they ever meet the person who constantly posts those ads. A 4 hour drive for a beatdown seems excessive, but people meet at shows, have a few beers, make introductions....I learned a few years ago, pinheads are insane.

Quoted from Zampinator:

What's the trick to posting pics? It won't let me(says:can't find image Id) Is it a bug with new update?

Your pics are probably too big.

Shrink them down to a reasonable size and make sure they are .jpg or .gif

Quoted from KeithinMI:

I'm selling my entire collection as a bulk-purchase. I have been collecting for years, and am going a different direction and getting out of the hobby. Not desperate for sale, but I'm thinking it's perhaps time to move on.
It's a mostly-"A"-tier collection, I'll leave that to your judgment. Every machine is my machine and all are in great condition, I will update with specific "flaws" on each machine later, but I thought I'd put the feelers out there. All work 100%
This collection certainly gives you some of the best of the best. None of the machines are CQ quality. A few are "huo" but undocumented so I will not advertise them as same.
The list is: MM, TZ, CV, ToM, STTNG, STLE, PoTC, Fireball (EM), Xenon (with uninstalled new pf), BK (with uninstalled new playfield), CFTBL, TSPP and LOTR
Most are "LED'd", many have add on non-destructive mods. I will not separate the bundle and allow it to be cherry-picked. It's an all or none disposition for me.
I'll also include extra parts, bulbs, plastics, repair pieces, cleaning supplies and the rest with the sale. Have some uninstalled side art and mirror blades for some as well.
PM me for my target price I'm thinking off. I'm doing that to keep the Pinside price police, naysayers, and thread flamers off my a** and sparking an endless, futile debate of how I'm x dollars too high on one machine, etc.
I will get pics this weekend link to a dropbox that should prove illuminative as to condition.

It would be easier for you, the seller, to sell them all at once, BUT you may have limited your market to an impossible fraction of all the possible buyers.

Most serious collectors already have MM, TZ, TOM, STTNG and POTC. Those are all very common games.

So the only people who could possibly be interested in your whole collection would have to be total newcomers to the hobby, who are also looking to instantly populate their games rooms, and who also happen to be very wealthy.

#280 5 years ago
Quoted from nosro:

If the price is sufficiently attractive, an opportunistic speculator could pick up the whole collection and then sell each item separately.

It would have to be a crazy good price.

Anyone who has $50-70K liquid, is not likely to be a foolish investor.

Everyone who has ever sold a high end game knows that the moment you put one up for sale, an expensive plastic shatters, a ramp cracks, and a bunch of potential thieves learn your location and hours, LOL.


All joking aside, I do wish the seller good luck with his sale!

Quoted from silver_spinner:

Selling all of these soon. All always kept shopped. Pm me if you want details. My games play as they should and tweaked to play up to tourney specs. All work 100 percent shopped.

Everyone is going to ask "Where are you in MI?".

Quoted from silver_spinner:

nah, people with money who really want to buy just pm me and we go from there so we know each other is, worked so far.
distance isn't an issue for true potential buyers.
i find most people who ask questions on a post in a public forum for every ones eyes in the world to see just are fishing.

I pick up pins for my clients all the time if I'm doing service in the area and have the company ramp van at my disposal.

Many of my pin clients are Southern OH, but I'm running service in lower MI all the time.

Detroit, Flint, Kzoo, Kentwood, Bay City, Muskegon..........all within my grasp.

WTB: I'm looking for a Genie in Southern MI, Northern OH.

#725 4 years ago

Some mods are must haves (like the arcade TRON mod), and some are a pile of crap.

I usually deduct what I pay for a game if the LEDs are installed like clown puke, because I've got to waste time removing them.

Future Spa

Lower MI or upper OH

#939 4 years ago
Quoted from silver_spinner:

i have a future spa. decent backglass (sealed now), new pf glass, proto silver apron, all boards gone through and connectors, mpu remote battery, displays all work fine, game plays fine. pf has ware, some touched up. cab painted red (not by me)..but actually looks ok.

CQ is not supposed to have decal cabs (unless factory), playfield overlays, translight if orig was backglass......If all that stuff was allowed, we would need a a new ACQ designation - Actual Collectors Quality

#1245 4 years ago
Quoted from silver_spinner:

so, isnt that one CQ?


#1262 4 years ago
Quoted from rockotaco1:

We have some a-hole in Michigan that has been posting the "you gonna get raped" big black guy picture on CL for months now any time someone posts a want ad.

What does the picture look like?

Only issue with Canada is the whole taxing situation which always confuses me.

Should be tariff free since most pins were made in the USA.

I might be OK to still post here, as you are not paying for a big headline ad?

I hope it's still allowed.

Quoted from sulakd:

Has anyone ever been to "Pinball at the Zoo"? I see that there's a pinball auction there in April. My question is whether it's worth waiting until April to try to pick up a machine there. Are there usually a lot of machines in that auction or just a few? Are the auction prices reasonable or ebay-style inflated prices? Thanks for any help!

The auction is cool and you want to be there for it, but the chances of you finding "the" game you want is pretty slim.

There are not tons of games in the auction.

Prices are "auction prices". Great looking games are going to have more bidders.

Like Wotan says, you'd be 1000x more likely to find a game on the floor, than in the auction.

#2267 3 years ago
Quoted from FrostyMug:

If a person wanted to "test" Michigan market for a pin could he/she post it here?

Show your game, name your price.

If it's crazy, the price-police will let you know promptly.

I once had that prototype Tesla Oscillator Shaker in one of my pins.

When the shaker somehow reached the resonant frequency of my home, I had to take an ax to the machine just before the roof caved in.

Any pins for sale up in Michigan?

Quoted from usandthem:

Is there a Game of Thrones on location in southeast Michigan? Thanks.

Pinball Petes has an LE in Ann Arbor.

#2545 3 years ago

As always, just ignore the price police...even if you put the playfield at $900, somebody would bitch about it.

Quoted from Agent_Hero:

I was self employed for 4 years and never did that, but then again, I wasn't making enough money at it to be heavily investing or worrying about when the government gets their money. I'm sure I gave away a bit more money than I had to, but I'm not crying over it.

The smartest Americans, we have found out, pay absolutely no taxes.

Quoted from Rum-Z:

For now, I'm just playing with the glass off and ear plugs in.

I tried that today, but the balls in Whitewater and Comet keep launching out of the game.

Quoted from wizard_mode:

Just go to ace hardware and buy some plexi glass. It'll never break again. The only downside is you cannot set a lit cigarette on it like you can real glass. It'll burn and melt.

The other downside is the plexi sags, turns yellow and scratches easily.
