    I've been wanting to make a few trades and am finding Pinside a zero especially since I have a few 90's games and everyone seems to be looking for new stuff. Just curious where others are finding trade deals? I haven't tried Craigslist in awile, but it seems to have mostly dried up for pins anymore. I understand that trades are hard to make, but I don't want to sell what I have unless I have something else lined up. Just curious of peoples thoughts or suggestions.

    Sell it and buy what you want. It's most likely easier thay way.

    I'm scoring deals from in real life connections. Someone knows I'm into pinball, knows a family member with a machine that's broken that they want fixed/gone, and I work from there. Stuff I'm not interested in, I pass along to my friends. For trades, it's mostly knowing other pinheads that want to mix up their home lineup.

    This has always been my best place for trades.

    Ultimately you are usually better off just selling it. Everybody thinks your stuff is garbage and their stuff is awesome.

    I just had a random guy try to trade me a LW3 or X Files for my Indiana Jones, all the while telling me my game was garbage because it had "stickers" on the cabinets, and the "triangles" had wear. That's what he calls inserts.

    I kept asking him why he wanted it when it was such a piece of shit and he couldn't come up with a satisfactory answer.

    I've had some good trades on Pinside however.

    Agree totally Levi! I have never made a deal here. Almost all of my pins were acquired from Craigslist. Trades never seem to work out. I just don't have cash for the hobby anymore and I don't just want to sell because I know the money will eventually not go into another pin.
