    Just the other day a copy of the Nintendo 64 game Mario64 sold at auction for 1.5M. The Wu-Tang album Once upon a time in shaolin was rumored to sell for 2M. Comic books have passed 3M. Classic cars.........

    Eventually it will happen; but what will be the first game to sell for a million or more? Theres got to be some one-of-a-kind machine that could break that threshold at auction

    *** I'll start a poll once there's a few suggestions

    Forgot about those. This is a pretty reasonable prediction.

    The last Stern.
    Company went under, 2 prototypes made.
    1 hand finished to 100 percent.

    #14 2 years ago

    So far (imho) the top contenders would be

    Stupid Supreme
    Original pinball circus
    Bigfoot (?)
    NOS Addams Family with original German testing tags (?)

    I thought $1M was the price of the next JJP pin.....Standard Edition only. If you want the CE it’s $1.5M.

    #16 2 years ago

    I hope one of my current line up. Now.

    Otherwise, the obvious choice is the prototype Punchy The Clown.

    Probably a Zizzle

    Whichever it is, it's gonna have to be a NIB with the box well wrapped and stored In a controlled environment with the proper evidence.

    Although one would argue that the million dollar buyer will keep the NIB, NIB.

    More realistically, Mario is a cult and the founding father of a worldwide billion dollar industry, pinball doesn't play in the same league.

    Definitely Space Jam because of the new movie coming out.

    After an alien crash lands into a theme park and successfully takes over the world using zombies under his control. All pinball machines are abandoned and forgotten. It is discovered the secret to defeating the alien invader is hidden in the wizard mode of RAZA. With this knowledge a wealthy investor puts it up for sale on the black market and it sells for $2 million dollars. Which due to inflation is equal to about 12 of today's dollars.

    #24 2 years ago

    Stern’s next Super LE and you will be required to send in a video stating why they should even consider accepting your Million Dollars given how high the demand will be!!!

    Maybe in a a thousands years and there is one surving cool pin.

    You laugh now but just wait….we should be asking, WHEN will said pinball sell for a million.

    #28 2 years ago

    A Raza prototype from Deeproot. The only one.

    #29 2 years ago

    Who knows, in a world where you can pull a Mario 64 out of a case of 6 and sell it for 1.5 million, it could be any pin. Especially when you don’t have to prove that money ever exchanges hands. All you need is a group of rich dudes manipulating the market. Works great for heritage and wata.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the sale never happens, they just want the news. Lots of questionable practices happen at heritage but nobody cares. Just lots of greed like any collectible hobby nowadays.

    It won’t be a pinball machine, it will be a topper!

    #32 2 years ago

    but...who's going to send it to get it graded? And yes, this video game biz is crazy right now. I recently found a sealed Mario Kart 64 in a closet that I auctioned on Ebay. $$$$.$$

    Circus Circus,.......please let it be Circus Circus...

    #38 2 years ago

    It won’t sell, but the first pin to be posted for 7 figures will undoubtedly be on this site, from someone with less than 7 posts, and Pinside staff won’t bat an eye at it.

    #39 2 years ago

    This will become an option for all JJP machines moving forward.
    A no chip, no pool playfield will carry a surcharge of 1m.
    This option will carry a generous 30 day warranty. If any of the million dollar playfields suffer from chipping or pooling within 30 days, an unpopulated replacement will be shipped to the original owner within 18-24 months.

    #40 2 years ago

    Will probably not even be a machine. It will be a pinball NFT

    #41 2 years ago

    The highest selling machine was in the 50k range so far? I don't think any pinball machine will break $100k anytime soon and never will get much above that. They just are not the same as graded other collectibles including video games. The Michael Jackson pin is a pin that comes to mind with a high asking price though.

    Quoted from phil-lee:

    The last Stern.
    Company went under, 2 prototypes made.
    1 hand finished to 100 percent.

    Are you talking about Lazer Lord?

    The “hand finish” one doesn’t seem promising. The correct code turned out to already be on IPDB meaning there is, in fact, a COMPLETE working Lazer Lord with the prototype code already running and it has been shared to IPDB. So it’s probably in one of those hush-hush private collections and the one that turned up in Chicago was a lost whitewood which I believe was determined to be from 1982. More than one prototype is usually made, who knows when we will see the others come out of the woodwork. It won’t sell for that much because from the design we saw it’s not actually that great.

    what we really need to be talking about is the idiot who paid 2 million for a wu-tang recording. Now the federal gov't owns it and the dude who bought it is in prison. He is also the dirt bag who jacked up the prices of cancer and aids medicine to get rich. These are the type of people who overpay for stupid crap.

    Skreli bought the wu-tang album and released it FOR FREE to EVERYONE instead of keeping it privately like anyone else would have.

    Not true, Skreli did not sell to patients, he was a manufacturer, they sell to the insurance companies and the middlemen who then rape the consumer and are responsible for destroying the market with astronomical prices.

    He decided to charge the middlemen criminals the same 1100% price hike they were charging the consumers. Notice how if you ask the pharmacy they tell you your drugs cost $960 bucks for 30 little pills? They only cost $30 to make. The manufacturers don’t make that money, but the insurance companies make BOATLOADS on insane markups.

    Once Skreli started beating the insurance companies at their own game (and giving away the life-saving drugs FOR FREE to patients who’s insurance companies were denying them or charging outrageous prices) the FDA and elected officials came scrambling to protect their valuable lobbyists and campaign donors.

    Skreli was a GOOD GUY and unfortunately when you beat the scumbag criminal companies (big tech, big pharma) at their own game they make sure the government destroys you and takes all your assets.
    A stay at the ER doesn’t actually cost 68 THOUSAND DOLLARS it’s all bullshit markups.

    Example: Eli Lily has only raised the price of Insulin marginally, we’re talking like $135.

    Meanwhile the “list” (price insurance companies charge you) is around $600+
    Doesn’t make sense does it? Why does the middleman insurance company make $500 for doing literally nothing?
