Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Noticing somewhat of a Market slump in older games. Williams / Bally B titles and even a few newer titles.
Not sure if I should adjust my prices with the recession or if I'm just not listing in the 'new go to groups'
Are there any particular Facebook groups I should be aware of when listing a game?
Does anyone even bother with Craigslist in STL anymore?
I've got 6 games I want to sell or swap out. I've been thinking maybe about auction / swap meet in a public space.
For those of us with families, don't really want strangers in our homes maybe a yearly swap / auction would be killer.
Would be cool to have a Missouri / St. Louis / KC or Columbia MO event. Where we
bring our machines to be Judged / Swap / Auction or Sell.
This could be done at:
Hotel (expensive ) VFW, Masonic Lodge, Farmers Market, Flea Market , Machinist or other Hall.
Any ideas. Talked to one person about setting up Tents outside somewhere. Possible but ..
Would anyone out there be willing to do something like this. On a specific date.
I'd be willing to help out volunteer.. Anyone Else..
Maybe we could have a event / tournament that corresponds at a location.
Could Missouri pull this off?

From what I understand, I was told there used to be an occasional swap meet - arcade-centric, but the venn-diagram of interest is nearly a circle. I was told this by the guy who runs the arcade out at West County Lanes. I'm sure he's around here somewhere because I know he was into pins as well, but I haven't seen him online over on KLOV in quite some time. Over on KLOV he went by "mr.fixit".

I hear ya on the recent black hole. I've been trying to unload a cheap Centipede on a couple different Facebook groups and KLOV all summer and it's not going well. I was able to sell my Gorgar pretty quick though, so maybe the pin market is stronger around here than I think. I'd love to attend a swap meet, but I definitely don't have the space connections to even think about trying to organize one.

This is always one of the slow times of the year with back to school (college) expenses, people who live the lake life are about to be winterizing their boats and there aren't any shows in the Midwest until Expo to shake anything out for sale so fewer people are looking. Big picture, a retailer here said used prices are starting to fall a bit from the era of being cooped up with nothing to do. I'm sure the good stuff will stay high, but trying to get 5k for Monopoly or Nascar-level Stern's probably is going to have to wait a few more years of bubbling.

I'm going to check out a couple spaces to see if there is anything in the realm of possibility in the St. Louis / St. Charles. Probably more on Westport / St. Charles Rock Road areas as I have access to them. Figure 6-8 months would be enough notice to get people interested. Possibly get a Vendor or Vendors there. Something grassroots. There certainly are enough collectors here to pull this off that don't do Pinball Tournaments and general public.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

#1458 48 days ago

Sounds like something like this would attract a ton of low ballers looking for the deal of their life. I would definitely check it out though.

Have a nice set of Bally/Williams legs and backbox hinges for sale if anyone is interested. Took them off my Twilight Zone but really don’t have much use for these. They’re in really good shape, but would rather not ship if I didn’t have to. Hit me up if anyones interested! Happy to provide pics but can’t seem to upload them here.

Might be interested in trading down my TNA for another game plus cash. It’s been routed so some scoop and shooter lane wear but well taken care of. Green plastic protectors, shaker motor, flippers will be rebuilt before a trade, and the Rick and morty style ball save counter.

Not looking to sell outright currently just seeing if there’s any trade interest. Interested in early solid states all the way to stern pros.

I am looking to trade my really nice Dr Dude and No Fear. No fear looks practically brand new, the guy I got it from said it came from the first owners basement. Color DMD in the No fear. Shoot me a message if interested .

#1475 24 days ago

I have a new pair of Stern side rails available if anyone wants them. Perfect condition. Recently upgraded and don’t have any use for these. PM if interested.

Running into some timing issues ATM. My workload has intensified and I had to drop a League night
for this Winter.

What I've done:
I do have some leads on some space that are not outside the realms of reason from a cost perspective that
are decent locations with close proximity to major highways , hotels and airport. Not loosing money is my major
concern I'm thinking that it would have to be similar to the Midwest Gaming event with Arcades, Board gaming,
Consoles and other stuff to make it pull people in. Lastly determining a door cost.. This is a pretty major undertaking which
I'll move to another group in the future.

I'm not sure a simple meetup, or swap meet would work out without 6 months or more notification or some other pull.
I do think St. Louis has enough collectors and folks to make it interesting. The # of volunteers needed is another aspect.
Getting a Space, Marketing it and then getting volunteers to make it happen. All keys to success. Maybe the first step
would be possibly partnering with Archon or another event.

I still have Ultraman CE for sale. Willing to trade for a DMD era game +/- Cash

I have a game of thrones le that was up at west county lanes/ west county pinball. Everyone who comes knows the quality of our games. Still very nice but needs a new node 8 board and it's sitting in the back room with the part on back order. It plays except when both flippers are engaged at the same time node 8 re-initializes. It's a common documented problem. This is its third node 8 the newer revision on order apparently solves the problem forever. Pm me looking to get around 10k has topper, mods color dmd, art blades, external woofer etc...

This game is a beauty for sure! I always admired it when I was up there!

We just picked up another IJPA that we will be restoring over the next couple of months.

Would like to swap it locally for a nice MM when we are done if anyone is interested.

Thanks currently things are on back-burner. I found two spaces that would totally
work but the timelines to used those spaces would require a volunteer army of people
willing to bring machines in. Maybe someone with more resources will roll the dice.

Meanwhile. Up for sale.

#1483 6 days ago

Anything for sale in the Springfield Missouri area? Heading that direction soon? Please PM me.

I have thought about using them, what does it cost for legs and armor ?

I had legs, rails, lockbar, and hinges done for under 200.
