I have an original Chexx bubble hockey I am looking to trade for an alpha numeric or newer pin. Dome has a crack in the side, not in view of the player. Everything works, and has coin mechs.
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
I was under the impression that these are the last place to find deals - are there really no more deals to be had?
Maybe if you are in the middle of nowhere, and they have no online bidding. In the mid-atlantic? Nope. Way to many fisherman trying to catch the same little guppy. Everyone with an extra $100 in their pocket is an American Picker or a Pawn Star now.
Quoted from cmack750:
+1 for this sentiment. Unless you happen to be REALLY close and just have some time to kill, it's very unlikely to be worth the time or effort. Which means that the only recourse would be an online bid if something was reasonable.... In which case, the buyers premium increases another 5%. Now you are talking an 18% premium + the 6‰ sales tax, all while realistically bidding "blind". No thanks.
If the auction is really not out of my way, I've stopped in to check out a machine or two during the preview and then just submitted absentee bids while there for what I'd (non-emotionally) been willing to pay in the event a deal falls my way so I don't waste my time sitting through the auction or being driven to pay more than I really wanted to. But honestly, that strategy has yet to produce anything. Just too many pickers out there in this neck of the woods.
I am 20 minutes away, and I would gain more by rearranging my sock drawer that day.
