Over the last 24 years of being in the hobby I've bought 665 pinball machines. They have come from every form of life in every kind of condition imaginable. Through all those purchases I've meet some really great people and have stayed friends with many of them over the years. Of those 665 games I've manage to purchase and keep around 75 games set up and running at all times here in the basement for hundreds (if not thousands) of people from all over the world to enjoy. Those 590 games that I've sold off have paid for all the games I've kept as well as keeping the basement decorated with what I enjoy being surrounded with and hopefully others think some of the other non pinball stuff is cool too. Am I getting rich "flipping" games? Certainly not, but I'm proud of the collection and especially happy when others can come enjoy it not only during the annual party but anytime they want through out the years, all they had to do was invite themselves over and the door was always open. Sure I made a few bucks and lost a few bucks too, but when I look back at all those games that many of which would have never seen the light of day and would have stayed stuck in a smelly basement, wet garage, or even left outdoors....I found them, I payed for them, I hauled them home, I cleaned them, I fixed them, I took pictures of them, I advertised them, I dealt with the deadbeat picture collectors, I found a buyer for them, and I helped to load it up and send them on there way, ...... and they had new life breathed into them for others to enjoy for years to come. Does all that make me a flipper? Sure, whatever. Call it what you want but I think I've put in enough time, money, resources, and effort to justify it paying for my keeper collection for all to enjoy!!
