Because of a awesome friend I get a chance to play a game I've always wanted to try. Too bad it's thawing out after a 3 hr trip in -6° temps. Allows me to start shopping it out cause it is one dirty girl.

Quoted from topkat:

That one was sweet. Don’t think you can find one that nice for that price Any more
Was nice work

Thanks. I got the base game for 400 or 450, and sold it for what we put into it. The right side of the cabinet ended up absorbing some of the new stencil, but that and the darker blue on the PF touch up were really the only things I wasn’t happy with.

It came out great otherwise. I think I sold it in an hour. Should have kept it, especially after all that work. It’s a fun game.

Glad to see you are watching the game.
Maybe “World Series” is an ok term if someone outside of the US is watching.

I kinda remember back in high school we won a couple? Probably would have 3 in a row if the 95 strike season hadn't happened with the Montreal Expos killing it that season. Go Astros. Would love to see the comeback.

Nice, I really like the System80 pins Gottlieb made, great art and good play. I hope you post some pic's of that Bell Ringer when you get it up and running.

love the bolt on carry handle ....great idea !

It’s especially very handy when a pin has to be carried downstairs

is this handle homemade? I assume its adjustable as the Indy is a wide body!

It's a common misconception. The championship series was originally sponsored by the New York World newspaper, hence "The World Series." After the newspaper closed the tradition carried on and the name stuck.

Not to sidetrack things any further, that’s in every sport now though. Super Bowl winners are referred to as “world champions”, when in actuality they are just national champions.

Same thing with basketball. The only sport that keeps it real is hockey. Which is surprising, because there are actually Canadian teams so it is a multi-country sport. Well, there are 1 or 2 in basketball also.

The guys the only sport that is truly "world champions" is soccer! The World Cup has basically every country in the world participating in some form. Just my .02

Canada has baseball teams in the MLB, they just play so poorly that it’s easy to forget they exist

I picked up this super nice condition Eight Ball Champ recently. It was in a NJ home for most of its life.

This wasn't high on my wish list, but I just couldn't resist the price.

Wow nice pick up! That is in really nice condition, you got a score there.

#13917 82 days ago
Quoted from Colsond3:

Very cool. The first pin I ever restored with my buddy back in 2015. I may still have the stencils somewhere if you need them.
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-harlem-globetrotters-completely-refurbished

That would be super cool. The cab has seen a bit of wear and fade. I figured stencils would be in my future.

Finally got my Superman back from Allan at Ardvark. The man is an absolute savior. And stopped at the opera on the way home.

Man, it’s been a long day and I figured you were adding some culture to your life with that opera comment. Then I saw the picture.

Cool pickup.

I worked on a strikes and spares for somebody a while back, had too much fun on it I guess. Made me want an old bally with some chimes and a spinner. Fun game, doesn't need much work.

No doubt, Allan is a savior. Glad you got "S" back with a Phantom to keep him company.

Contact PBR for the coils, he will have what you need. Burnt coils not uncommon as the mech will bind up, get stuck and coil will stay on to fusion happens.

Phantom was keeping Xenon company but I think she got tired of the screaming on the drains. Fun pin though, great sound.

Quoted from Ballypin:

I have seen Mozart’s Requiem several times, Don Giovanni, Carmina Burana and several others, mostly at the Lincoln Center in NYC. They used to do the Mostly Mozart Festival up there annually, but I haven’t seen that they’ve had it in the last few years.

And I did major in Classical Guitar my first year in undergrad.

was the POTO from hanover? my buddy almost traded for that.

Quoted from weaverj:

Not that one...my bud Gary up in New England had grabbed this one for me a while back and was holding it. The one in Hanover I believe had a burn mark on the Phantom’s face insert on the PF.

Either that's common or that machine gets around...the last two I saw for sale were the same machine with a burn in the face.

Excited to add these two pins to my game room. What started out as "maybe I will buy an Attack From Mars" turned into an 8 hour road trip three weeks later to add Medieval Madness.

Awesome! Way back in my college days, I was the featured soloist for a performance of Mozart's Clarinet Quintet; my roots are in classical performance. A bit later, I moved onto jazz saxophone because there were more gigs, so that's how that goes...

You can't go wrong there; best Marx Brothers in my opinion. The stateroom scene gets me every time!

I saw Queen with Freddie, do songs from a Night at the Opera, 4 times live.

Picked this one up this morning. I like it when I only have to drive 15 minutes to get a game. On top of that it was on the main level so getting it out was easy.

One of my employees found these two for me at a house sale a week or so ago and we just went and picked them up today.
Cross Town, Gottlieb EM pin (my first wedge head) and a Pac Man upright with a Pac Man plus expansion kit in it.
Paid $950 for the pair.
Just finished unloading them from the trailer and stashed them in the garage, but will probably start cleaning the pin up this weekend.
It's pretty nice overall with minimal flaking of the glass and no missing graphics on the play field. l
I'm pretty sure it hasn't been played in a long time. All the rubbers have vulcanized and are hard as a rock.

Had to play Tetris with a few cabinets to make them fit.

Looks great. I always wanted to love that game enough to own one but it's never happened. I like playing it a lot but I guess once I get a 100mil game going on it, it starts to feel tedious.

Had this one for a week or so now, but had to get the GI working before I'd post a picture here. All now working and looks great. Prior owner had installed the LED's, and actually delivered and set up for me - in my basement! It doesn't get better (easier) than that! Hardly and fade on the cabinet, very little playfield wear. Overall a great machine!

A better shot of the playfield - with all lights!

IMG_9113 (resized).jpg
#13947 78 days ago

I recommend swapping out the color bulbs in the gi for sunlight white bulbs. It will look so much better. Fish Tales is an awesome game. I'm still amazed you can still find them relatively cheap compared to other great pins from that era.
