Quoted from Lathroum:

Really? I know for a fact I contacted the guy first... You are probably the jerk the original owner told me about who kept trying to offer more money for him to cancel the deal with me... No one else saw these pins in person... As I said before... Grow up... Anyone who wants to see if these pins are collector quality can come and see them in person...

Wow, name calling and assumptions after I posted fact. Very classy. Too bad this forum doesn’t allow for images. I’d post the screenshot of your seller letting me come inspect first even though you had a deposit. I never offered more money for them. I told him he was lucky for someone to offer full asking. You already pulled one over on someone new to the hobby. I’m not going to let you use the words CQ associated with these games and take advantage of someone else. Go back to fleabay..

Once again you don't know me at all... you guys started the name calling... These games are collector quality... I never said they were mint... for original unrestored games you can't tell me you have seen many any better... I did not "Pull One Over" on anyone... that Playboy was as clean as any ever... the inside was so clean you could eat off it... there were barely any scratches on it at all... the boards were clean... the playfield had one spot... the center had been repaired with a decal/sticker and the new owner was advised beforehand... the pin was worth every penny I sold it to him for... I NEVER SELL ON EBAY EVER!!! Come see it, play it, make an offer... There are no nicer versions of these two pins for sale around here now at all... and you know it... you are bitter you did not get the deal... now move on... and Grow up!

What you mean is... you tried to take the deal out from under me... I was told... ask around with people who have bought pinball machines and arcade games from me... no one has ever left unhappy... or felt cheated... I just looked up all the games I have for sale on here in archived ads with similar prices and mine are as good or better than the one's I looked at and I only checked on one's that sold... stop trying to sabotage my sales because you missed a deal... go be bitter someplace else... Don't like it... don't buy it... come look and make me an offer if you don't like the price...and again... grow up!

I didn’t try to take your deal.. stop assuming and stop trying to differentiate a line between CQ and “Mint”.

#10110 3 months ago
Quoted from Lathroum:

You don't know me or what I do... Try again... Been collecting since the 1990s... Jerks like you guys are why I never dealt on here before... I go back to the rec.games.pinball days... Come see the pins in person... Don't like it then don't buy it... What is not collector quality on the Strikes and Spares? The almost perfect playfield... The mint back glass... The beautiful cab... Grow up...

Um, Most of us on here have been collecting since the 90's and have been in the RGP forums long before Pinside was around. Nothing special to brag about. The reason most fly by night flippers don't deal with Pinside is because most of us know as much about pinball as what they do. And will call them out. Simple as that. Nothing wrong with flipping games. We've all done it. Your just getting a little bent out of shape because people are disagreeing with what you call CQ.

I was not bragging... he tried to act like I just joined here yesterday to flip things.... I actually stayed away from here for years because of this BS... I'm bent because I know what condition these games are in and he is only trying to sabotage my selling because he missed a deal... and I don't want my rep tarnished by someone who I don't know and I have never met... I would NEVER sell to anyone who could not come see and play the game for themselves... I have never shipped anything... I know what these are... I don't BS anyone... try again... anyone want to actually come look at the pins is welcome to... I am off work on Thurs and Fri... anyone??? See for yourselves...

Quoted from bluespin:

What about a CQ Firepower?

I have a CQ firepower too for sale.

Remember, even though I'm describing it as collector's quality which is the absolute best classification of quality out there, the game is NOT mint. Nope. But CQ. Yes.

That's the way old school Pinball guys do it.

Really dude... this is how you get your rocks off... I never said it was mint out of the box... did you see the pics? have you seen it in person... drive youself up here and come play it... and stop being a troll... Collectors Quality does not mean mint... look at the pics... does it look like a players shape pin with a few wear spots and dinged up cab? or does it look like something you would want in your collection... the games are 40yr old survivors... not repainted... not replacement playfields... no repro backglass... get over it and grow up... come play it, make and offer, or shut up...

Just so I’m clear the official pinball grading scale goes like this. Trying to learn from the veterans..

-Players shape with a few wear spots and dinged up cab
-Something you would want in your collection (no replacement playfields)
-Mint out of the box

Hello, I'm new to this hobby, so trying to get my bearings. I've had an old Big Guns machine for years that I recently got working again after some soldering and part replacements and help from this forum. I've been enjoying fixing and tweaking and was looking to take on a larger project.

Does anyone have any 80's era solid state machines for sale in the Harrisburg, PA area?

Hey guys:

I’ve never entered this thread before as you guys have usually been rather drama free in here. Please try and keep the bickering back and forth to a minimum. Please do not be insulting to one another or condescending by telling people to grow up. I do not want to issue a bunch of take it to pm moderations on this otherwise very nice evening in this otherwise very nice thread.

Thanks,
Mod Team

I appreciate your posting even if just for the drama it caused very popcorn worthy. But seriously I do appreciate warnings. Those don't look CQ to me. They look like players. Super Nice games but players games just the same. The playfield on that strikes and spares is stellar. Looks like some wear on the back box though. Nothing unreasonable given the age but unless they are like perfect I wouldn't call them CQ.

As Ron Burgundy once said "That escalated quickly"

*** I can tell you this - I've known and bought from Lathroum in the past as well as several of my other friends. Don't let his short time on Pinside fool you because he's a seasoned collector. No one works as hard as he does to find pins and games in the surrounding area - NO ONE. Philli is always willing to help someone out. He's a straight shooter to deal with, fair, genuine and as honest as they come. Salt of the earth type of guy and can vouch for him. ***

This all started because he claimed on pinside that a game he was selling was "collector quality". I was able to inspect these games myself even though Lathroum already made a deposit, I live pretty close. I told the seller if the guy gives him full price for those games, he should take the deal. But if it falls through let me know. Not sure where Lathroum got the idea I offered more $, etc. Maybe someone else did, I don't operate like that.

On facebook sale groups he admits to the SnS having "ball swirls" just like I saw in person. What I think this all boils down to is a misuse of the term "Collector Quality" to actually mean something like "Nice Players Condition" or whatever. I just didn't want anyone to pay up for what they thought was a CQ game, delivery, etc. and realize what they bought was a nice condition players.

Not trying to dog anyone for making a flip.. certainly didn't have to make it personal out the gate.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Collector's Quality = absolutely mint condition

lathroum this is probably why people are taking exception to your ads. If you take that phrase out, I'm sure you won't get so much negative attention about them.
