    Quoted from Borygard:

    What bubble?
    Sure prices are higher than they have ever been on pins. So are they on everything else.
    More people coming into the hobby every day, huge new interest looks to only increase.
    There isn't anyone in a business related to pinball that I know of that isn't busier than they've ever been, myself included.
    I don't remember a more exciting time in the industry in 30 years. New games, new manufacturers, new technologies, just lots of exciting things going on and interest from the general public continues to increase by leaps and bounds. I personally don't see it ending any time soon.

    Quoted from BMore-Pinball:

    Sort of like the housing market, eh?

    The housing bubble was different -- prices were inflated by easy credit and slap fast loan underwriting/appraisal practices. Pin prices aren't being fueled by easy credit -- most of the purchases are cash on hand. Main factor on prices is expansion of the hobby, namely new collectors. Plus you have to look at JJP showing Stern that this growing market segment would absorb price increases in return for quality (JJP) or premium edition features (Stern).

    That's why I disagree with the whole bubble theory. Prices are more about expansion of buyers, demographics and price elasticity. But wtf do I or anyone else in here really "know"....
