Just got home safe after a 12 hour round-trip. Picked up two games, one that has been on my wishlist for a long time. All the way from Italy !!!!!!! Can't wait to get them going. Still need to clean, convert and evaluate.

Finally got this major project home. I actually bought it over 12 months ago. Long story but the short version includes isolated area In another state I purchased from, a friends family member passing away (he was packing it and getting it to a transport company or me.) Transport companies ridiculous cost and to top it all off a pandemic that shut all states off from each other.
All actually works which I’m very surprised about. The back glass is a classic. They look like the Caspers not Simpsons. For $600 I think it’s a bargain.

Ad was up for 4 minutes. Got the address and the game was in a church. Bet they couldn't wait to get this thing gone. I did give them $ 50. I just glad I did not get a free pinball mashing.

Snagged this one for a close family friend just tonight. He’s always been into classic car racing and loves restoring old MGs. Wanted a game for his home office, so this one is gonna be cleaned up and passed on.

I was made an offer I couldn't refuse on my GB Pro, so sadly it has moved on, but to celebrate I picked up not one, but two pins! First one was a Star Trek Pro at a great price. I'm in the process of shopping it out, adding a color dmd, etc and it should clean up nicely. Looking forward to finally get Five Year Mission now that I have one at home. Second game is a JP2 Pro. Game is in fantastic shape, looks hardly played. Such a great, challenging game with so much do to, it should keep me busy for some time to come. I'm really happy with my current collection (Torpedo Alley is already on it's way out too), so getting new games in the future is going to difficult because at least one will have to leave to make room.

Quoted from alexanr1:

I have noticed that asking prices are getting ridiculous on some games. People are getting desperate in many instances and want to buy and buy now. I was blindly solicited to sell my GB Pro and was able to get well over market value for it, so I couldn't say no to selling it. Because of that, I was able to pick up Star Trek and JP2 and still at well below market value just based on networking and dealing with more local connections. If you have cash, a reliable reputation, show up when you say, does what you say and doesn't go through the game with a microscope and nitpick everything...you'd be surprised the deals you can get. I know personally I rarely ever end up posting one of my games for sale publicly because I am willing to sell at or just under market value to complete an easy sale. I have several people I contact personally when one of my games are for sale and 9/10 one of those people wants my game before it's even available to the public. And likewise, people will reach out to me with a game that they want to sell for an easy sale and we'll complete a deal without it hitting the public.

IMO you should put some flat black in a Wagner spray gun and spray the overhead joist. It will come out looking awesome. Your collection is very nice.

Most actual "deals" are going to be on FB marketplace these days. The problem is you have 500 other people constantly watching so you're basically playing the lottery hoping to get lucky. There is occasionally something on CL or the sales apps like Offer Up but those usually seem to be scams or junk, at least around here.

When I'm buying or trading games unless it's a deal I tend to stick to local collectors I know and have dealt with before. Prices tend to be more realistic and just much less of a hassle. Any networking you can do helps too. My neighbor is a realtor and has spotted a few games in houses she was listing and asked the owners if they planned to take them. The more you can train people to watch for you the better ha!

Even FB market page is thru the roof. People are nuts on prices. I have offered several what they are worth and all have said no.

You need to look in the public market (not the pinball groups) and look in the local generic buy/sell/trade groups and post want ads on there. It is still like finding a needle in a haystack, don't get me wrong, but when the deals do pop up that is where they will be, and usually gone in minutes unless a bidding war starts. Have cash and car ready. I've gotten a good amount of steals off there but missed alot too.
