Item description

1971 Gottlieb "PlayBall" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, working and clean, and has recently been shopped, playfield cleaned/waxed, all burned out bulbs replaced, etc.

The cabinet is solid, structurally sound, with just the normal wear and scuffs. Inside of cabinet and backbox are both very clean with no rust. The front coin door does show rust and needs to be cleaned/replaced. New #1382 locks have been installed on front coin door and rear door.

The playfield is in very nice shape, has been cleaned and waxed. The inserts are all present and level. The plastics are also nice and original. Score/instruction cards are missing, but repros are available.

The backglass is original and also is in very nice, above-average shape. Just a spot or two in a few white areas shows slight wear near score windows.

The game will come with a nice set of 31" metal legs, the appropriate length. New 2" and 3" leg levelers have been installed.

Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.
NOTE: Please use the following email address for all questions/requests: _______________@_________ [email removed] . Thanks!

Payment methods accepted include: PayPal, Cashier's Check, Money Order, Cash. If picking the game up in person in Alameda, CA we will have someone to assist with loading, etc. If shipping, we prefer to use NAVL.

NOTE: This game comes from the collection of the non-profit Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) located in Alameda, CA, and is one of our duplicates of certain titles that we are selling in order to reduce our warehouse storage needs and to raise funds for the PPM. In addition to certain EM and Solid State titles from the 60's, 70's and 80's, we will also be listing for sale several Gottlieb woodrail titles from the late 1940's to the early 1960's soon over the course of the next several weeks.
