3 pins and ball bowler (FS in marketplace-I just don't have the space)

Williams Student Prince
1930's Handicap
1930's ???? Anyone have any idea based on the pics?
1959 Bally Challenge Bowler

Space was tight, so Student Prince sat shotgun to navigate~

Quoted from Colsond3:

That Fireball looks like it’s in excellent shape. To this day it amazes me how many people / non-collectors have a single pinball game tucked away somewhere in their house.

I've gotten a Mousin Around and a Frontier from people like this this year off FB for $500 each. The Mousin Around was sitting in a basement under a sheet with some tools on it and the Frontier was basically a bookshelf.

Picked up a real nice Gottlieb Pro Football and Capt Card today from an awesome Pinsider, Benetboy78.

Good weather for a nine-hour road trip.

My wife didn't think two games would fit in her car.

Update on two pins added this weekend, LOTR and POTC. Finally unloaded and set up yesterday, thanks, Adam! So excited to get a few mods and upgrades on these two. Can’t believe the clean condition of both.

Got GoTG home a couple weeks ago (And let me tell ya...Cleland's sound mod is MAGICAL).

Deadpool came home this weekend.

Love both....

Cleland is da Man for sure! I’m lucky, he’s local and is always available for help, advice, guidance- you name it.

Got this through Letgo. Boots and starts a game but won't feed a ball to the shooter lane. Also needs a major shopping. But for a couple hundred bucks, I can't say I'm unhappy.

The Force was strong with me yesterday! Completely filthy but working 100%! Can't wait to get this up and playing with the others. I really need to get some updated gameroom shots.

Nice collection of Star Treks. You really need the Stern one, most fun to play out of all Star Trek pins in my opinion.

Only one more to go! It's definitely on the to-buy list. I will spring for the premium/LE when I save up the money. I was going strong there for a while until that Star Wars fell into my lap. Couldn't turn it down!

I brought home a 1971 Gottlieb Home Run. It was from someone who bought several games as a lot. The back glass is rough. It is dirty and has some electrical issues. I was able to get it to limp into a game, so there is hope. The machine is complete excluding a coin mechanism, coin door coil and coin box. It is a cheap project for my son and I to work on over the next few weeks. He is into baseball and wanted this project.

Not a bad bring home. I'm thinking Home Run being the better player of the Gottlieb AAB Wedge

Thank you. It does look like it has many obstacles for such an un-populated field. I am fairly new to to owning pinball machines (under a year), please let me know what AAB means.

#10232 3 years ago

AAB is add-a-ball. Some EMs have a feature where you can earn an extra ball for reaching a certain score. In place of winning a replay / free game.

#10233 3 years ago

Joust is now up and running 100% after a bit of work, ton of PF cleaning / shopping. Really likin’ the zipper flips...never owned a game with those before.

Another classic saved from the evil clutches of the Grim Reaper lol.1972 Williams Honey. Got this beauty Wednesday, for the grand total of FREE!!! She was rescued from the barn of a foreclosure that my friends company was contracted to clean out. It was due for a dumpster later that afternoon. She needs a full restore but that's 80% of the fun for me. And as you can see I'm missing the whole relay board and score motor so I will be trying to source those parts soon.

Quoted from chill:

Yes, AAB I meant as add-a-ball. I was writing maybe a little too nonchalantly..
As you say, it does have a somewhat open playfield which is one of the reasons why
I went through one of the Extra Innings (which has the same playfield layout as Home Run)
last Winter figuring I'd just trade or sale it. Once done, I surprisingly enjoyed it, and although
I have another one, I decided to keep it so I put it in a Friends restaurant, and it seems to be
well liked..
I haven't yet gone through the Home Run, but have played a friends', and liked it better than
Batter Up or World Series which are also AABs. Extra Inning I'm thinking is 2nd to Home Run..
I believe Batter Up, World Series, Home Run, and Extra Innings (kinda) are the only AAB Gottlieb
Wedge Head baseball themes..

To the right of the machine in the picture of it in the barn where you picked it up looks like may have been the board with all of relays any way to check or has it all been cleaned out? You would think it would have been in there somewhere.

I just called my friend and he told me he hasn't cleaned it out yet due to all the rain we have had recently so I'm still in luck. I sent him a photo of what it looks like and he is going to check for me since he lives by the foreclosure and I live about 100 miles from it. Fingers crossed.
