Mata Hari. Had to buy a new back glass and learn mylar removal and playfied retouching, in addition to a hundred electrical and mechanical repairs.

Your first pin certainly teaches you what to look at when you buy your second!

F14, the one that took so many of my quarters in the 80s. Two shipped at price of one, so Grand Lizard came with it. In followed the other two quarter eaters from that time, High Speed and Pinbot. While I kept hearing "why would you buy those?". Now our game room is quite popular!

Skylab, 4Roses & Aladdin's Castle got all three at the same time. But Skylab was the only one I had played before buying.

Bally 1965 50/50 back in 1977. I was 14, my parents went for a one week vacation and left me home with some money for food. With that money, I bought the pin (200 Finnish marks or $50 in 1977) and ate at Grandma's. After returning back, parents were not exactly happy... but I had my first pin!

Mine was Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure. I bought it off eBay in the early 2000s because I'm a huge Indy fan. I never really played much pinball as a kid, but thought an Indy pin would be cool for the house. I remember when I bought it a guy told me I'd become hooked on pinball. He started with one and now had more than 30. I didn't believe him, but fast forward 18 years or so and I now have 7 games with another on the way and an original Wurlitzer 1015 jukebox. I'd buy more if I had the money and the room in my townhouse. My wife gave me one room to make into the gameroom with the understanding that I wouldn't spill over into any other rooms. There are so many more titles I'd like to get, but alas I am limited. I love this hobby.

Paid $1000 for a funhouse back in the day. I bought because Rudy is friggin' cool!
