next downturn in the economy you will see people unloading games for a lot less than they do today. Desperate times / desperate measures...

Quoted from Rarehero:

Didn't happen last time. Seems that people who collect pinball can ride out the hard times without selling off their games en masse. Only way prices dip is if EVERYONE tries to sell their games at once.

people weren't paying $9,000 for NIB pins prior to the last downturn.

People have at least double the amount invested per game now. With the strong economy, people are also buying more games today than in recent history. The third difference is that there are a TON of new people to the hobby this time. No one knows how they will react to a life changing economic downturn...

I'm not saying I can predict the future, but saying the hobby will be "just fine" if the economy goes down he drain again is just wishful thinking. It may not collapse, but there will absolutely be a correction...
